I am not sure how anyone could possibly give up on Ponder after last season, or even think that it can be determined that he is a bust already. I personally believe he could be a winning QB in this league. (Depending on the ability of the coaching staff to develop his skills).Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

Fans can be fickle. Ravens fans are tired of Flacco, Giants fans were ready to give up on Eli (he won them a SB each year), you'll start hearing garbage about Sanchez and even Ryan might get a bit of flack when the truth is, the only one that really hasn't continued to progress over their career is Sanchez, and I still think he should get about 2 more years before you start pulling him.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I think we will see a jump like that though. Again, easy check downs to RB's, OL, WR's, you can also use the "Red Zone" percentages as an indicator he can do it.
In short, a stretch? Maybe, impossible, I don't think so.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Christian Ponder - Minnesota Vikings - 2012 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com
After recently re-watching 2011 game tape, NFL Films guru Greg Cosell found himself "more intrigued" with Christian Ponder's "pure throwing ability."
Rotoworld's Evan Silva separately came to the same conclusion. Both analysts noted better than advertised arm strength, pocket composure, athleticism, and confidence in challenging quality cornerbacks.Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

I think CMAC is pretty dead on. Though I was a little lower on the spectrum on things. I was leaning more toward 3,500 yards, 22 TDs, 15 INTs, 58% or so. But I am banking on him missing a couple of games.
Either way ... I would not hate those numbers and would see them as reason to hope for a big jump in year 3.
