Draft Scout Christian Ponder News
10/02/14 - QB Christian Ponder went 8-for-18 for 60 yards and two interceptions in the first half, and the Vikings trailed 28-0 at halftime. One of those interceptions was returned for a touchdown, and another set up a touchdown. "After playing like that," Ponder said, "you don't have much to say. It was embarrassing." He finished 22-for-44 for 222 yards.
08/31/14 - QB Christian Ponder did indeed make the cuts to 53, as coach Mike Zimmer indicated would happen. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner no doubt played a role in solidifying the franchise's decision not to follow the growing trend of keeping only two quarterbacks. As offensive coordinator in Cleveland last year, Turner was on his third different starting quarterback by Week 8.
08/29/14 - QB Christian Ponder saw his first preseason action since the opener. And he looked good. Heck, he looked great for a No. 3 QB. The embattled former franchise quarterback hopeful threw the ball with decisiveness while completing 12 of 15 balls for 121 yards and no turnovers.
08/05/14 - QB Christian Ponder, the 12th overall draft pick just three years ago, is little more than a camp arm at this point. He brings value in the sense that he's highly experienced for a No. 3 QB. But that value is of use only if Matt Cassel or Teddy Bridgewater gets hurt. Ponder gets very few reps in 11 on 11 practice. And all of them come with the third-stringers.
07/30/14 - QB Christian Ponder's role, which already was limited to third-team reps, has been reduced even further. To make practices more efficient for the first and second units, the third-team reps are being reduced during the 11 on 11 drills.
