Some Viking Blogging: Pondering Ponder
This season Ponder has really only had two games that were stinkers. This game with only 58 yards passing with 2 INT's and at Detroit where he had just over 100 yards passing. Sure he made a bad throw in Washington that went for 6, but as far as I'm concerned his second Int in Washington was on tight end Kyle Rudolph for jumping the gun on a play in which Peterson would have scored the touchdown that would have put us within a field goal of winning provided we got an on-side kick.
Ponder is going to have uneven performances just like every other young quarterback. Personally I don't think he was getting that much time to throw in today's game especially in the 2nd Half. Hopefully Ponder will bounce back verses Tampa on Thursday.
