Why Ponder can still be a decent Quarterback

Before anybody jumps on my back and hounds me for saying this but Christian Ponder i believe is just hurting because of a bad coaching staff. I've been watching and reviewing Ponder from his days at FSU and I can see why he was ranked 4th out of 86 quarterbacks from the 2011 NFL draft. For instance his JR year i believe.. 2009 there was an argument that if he was in the 2010 draft that he could have gone 1st overall. Ive seen this by looking at his stats and watching the games myself from that year. Against Georgia Tech that year Ponder was 26-36 359 yards and 5 TDS! those are stats of a winner, showed great pocket presence and awareness and showed that he had a strong enough arm to make the deep throws. The next week after that Ponder shined once again against North Carolina. In that game Ponder was 33-40 (82.5 comp) for 395 yards and 3 TDS. Once again showed great pocket awareness and make good intermediate and deep passes. So if the vikngs get a better coaching staff i believe Ponder is better than he is playing now. Now by saying this am i a huge Ponder fan? No not at all, Do i believe they shouldnt go with a QB in the 2014 NFL draft? No I think we should but all im saying is with a better coach to get him back into checking all of his reads and making him make better decisions in the pocket that he could be a better quarterback then what we are are seeing from him right now. SKOL VIKES!
