The most important thing Ponder has going for him is his noggin. The kid is smart. If he can get help from the O-line as well as running backs to help block I think that the extra time in the pocket will help him make his throws. He has the smarts, some talented pass catchers, and a solid run game, now he just needs some blocking.
As far as his confidence, its sky high. This truly is "his" team this year. Now lets see what he can do with it.
Strictly my opinion, so dont rip me to pieces too quickly.
