Has to be his biggest game of his short NFL career. Never been a big fan of Ponder as a QB(more of a leader), but, he will have a chance to change a lot of people's attitudes today. Was he really worth the high first round draft pick? As a former Nole I hope he does great, but, he has been inconsistent this year.

Ponder 2/5 for 18 yds, 1 rush for 8 yds on the first drive that lead to a 54 yd FG by Walsh. AP needs 208 for the rushing record has 15 so far 208-15= 193 to go!

Outside of AP that team has zero talent on offense. He's working with a AAA team
The worst receiving core in the league. Ppl will be singing a tune when they draft a WR early and Percy comes back. They will be a potent offense next year. Ponder will be a fantasy football steal also.

Ponder finishes the first half 9/15 for 100 yards passing and 1 TD. 2 rushes, 16 yards.
Laughable to compare Rodgers to Ponder. You only make yourself look foolish. Try to look at the situation without bias. As a matter of fact, just listen to Aikmam talk about Ponder. He has no ax to grind.

Ponder is a game manager at this level but you can win games with a game manager. Alex Smith is the best comparison.
Ponder is not the real downfall of that offense. He has TERRIBLE receivers and the offensive gameplan is horrid. They never stretch the field and have no weapons other than AP. if the kid had a little more time, a weapon on the edge and a coordinator who will stretch the field they would be markedly better.
