I cant compare Ponder to Freeman simply because they are two totally diffrent qbs. Freeman has a big arm and he stands about 6'5 or 6'6 so he can see the field a little better then Ponder at 6'2 and throw it with more zip. That class also included Matt Stafford so It was also stronger IMO. Although that's irrelevant I just thought I'd add that.
There are things that Ponder does that just doesn't show me that he can be a good qb. I want him to do so well because I want our team to be successful but even as a rookie qb you have to look at what Luck does under duress, just look at the highlights from yesterday's game and how he moves around in the pocket to elude defenders then steps up to make the throw under a lot of pressure that's what I wanna see from Ponder.
Good qbs make throws under pressure. It's not fair of me to compare Ponder to luck though because Ponder isn't as Good as Luck and will probly never be, but all I want is for our second year qb to show us that he can play in this league and not look like a lost kitten out there.
We can't make excuses for Ponder anymore he has to man up and take some of the blame for this and he needs to show us that he belongs. Musgrave sucks as a play caller I'll give you that but as a qb there are some throws that he should be making with ease and throwing for over 100 yards should come easy also when you have AD in the backfield. It's the little things that makes me skeptical about Ponder, I want him to succeed I do bros. I don't hate ponder at all, I just wanna see him play much better. All A fan can ask for is progression.
