Christian Ponder Video #2

Christian Ponder Video #2

Here's the second installment of Christian Ponder highlights from the preseason.  I requested this from Gridiron Videos and he was kind enough to oblige.  Please show some support and "like" the video.

Now, lest I be attacked again for using the "75 Words" convention for using up the needed space to enter a FanPost, I'll make sure I include some content...

In this video we see once again that Ponder gives us things to be hopeful and worried about.  Hopeful because, when he has a clear lane, he delivers the ball efficiently and accurately.  Worried because he does exit the pocket quickly (granted, he's almost always under pressure).  Overall, the good outweighs the bad here.  I would rather see the accuracy and deliberateness first.  With time and continuity, he'll get more comfortable with his line and learn to trust the pocket.  Fingers crossed: at the combine there were a lot of comparisons between Ponder's and Hasselbeck's games; I know it's a stretch, but I have to admit I see a closer resemblance to an early Steve Young (minus the south paw).

Initially, I was not excited to see us trade for McNabb.  I wanted to turn a fresh page and begin the season with the biggest story from our offseason.  I've come around now.  I'm glad Ponder won't be canon fodder (at least not yet).  He's got the tools, but he needs to grow into them.
