Heading back to Vikings Training Camp there is a lot of pressure riding on Christian Ponder this season.
Can he be the quarterback the Vikings need to win games and take over in the 4th quarter. In training camp your job is always up for grabs, but one former Viking gives his take on if the guy under center for the purple and gold can live up to his expectations.
"Absolutely, I think he has what it takes mentally. Iit sounds like he has accepted the leadership role, you know having John Sullivan in front of him pretty much handling the offensive line. John's a guy that's pretty much under appreciated in the NFL and doesn't get enough credit. And I think having a guy that is that smart and that mentally tough infront of him is going to help him out," said Ben Leber, former Vikings Linebacker.
