    That is sooo true.. I was about to say the same thing.... If you look at him throw the ball it looks like he's aiming it in there... Not a very good passer IMO...

    I have to assume Floyd was joking about Klein. He should milk his college years for everything he can and then just move on with his life. He will no doubt get drafted and may help some team out, but it will be limited.

    Ponder needs to settle his feet when throwing. Many young quarterbacks coming out of college, and put into the starter role early, have the same problem he does. Brett Favre, Drew Brees, and Eli Manning all did, and Aaron Rodgers had three years on the bench behind a Hall of Fame quarterback before he was given the starter role.

    I would certainly like to see Ponder develop more quickly and see if he can actually throw downfield with some accuracy, but I understand that expectations are often as detrimental to a young quarterback as actual game play.

    hahhaahah that is just what i thought when i saw the whole couple thread..

    honestly he was doing better when football was his gf..

    i can accept that everyone wants someone in their life.. but when your being paid to develop your skills.. 99.9% of your time should be geared there. fall asleep watching film, reading plays.. seeing what receivers (your own) are doing.. tendencies.. how high can they jump.. how fast do they hit that yard marker..

    stay out of the clubs.. stay embedded into your job!! when you have mastered the skill set you need.. search out for that monkey to keep your nerves rested..

    there is an upside to this though.. if it's just foot mechanics.. this can be taught, practiced, worked on.. if it was decision making, talent.. and throwing style we'd be in a lot worse spots right now.
