Be Patient With Ponder; Success Could Be Coming

Some Viking fans are growing impatient with Christian Ponder as the starting quarterback but I urge you to give him another chance this season.  Ponder’s numbers in 2012 include a completion percentage of 62% with 2,935 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.  2012 was Ponder’s 2nd year in the league.

Comparing some established quarterback’s 2nd years in the league with Ponder established the following findings;  Drew Brees 61% completion percentage, 3,284 yards, 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions;  Tony Romo  65% completion percentage, 2,903 yards, 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions;  Jay Cutler  63% completion percentage, 3,497 yards, 20 touchdowns and 14 interceptions; Joe Flacco  63% completion percentage, 3,613 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Ponder’s year 2 numbers are similar to Brees, Romo, Cutler and Flacco.  Those 4 quarterbacks are established quality starting quarterbacks in the NFL.  Ponder still needs to take a big step in his 3rd year but based on the success of the previously mentioned quarterback Ponder has a chance.
