Pondering the Vikes QB situation



Bookmark and Share

AFTER A TOUGH SEASON IN 2011, THE VIKINGS LOOK TO REBOUND IN 2012 WITH THE SAME MAN UNDER CENTER, BUT TO WIN MORE GAMES CHRISTIAN PONDER MUST IMPROVE AND IT STARTS IN TRAINING CAMP.

Christian Ponder says, "You know me maybe missed a route or so, we got to do some different things, picking up different blitzes. I think it's a lot hard to pick up blitzes in pads. So we just got to do that and there's something other things we still got to grow , but I thought overall, I mean, we're so much farther along than we were last year at this time."

 AND TO WIN, PONDER SAYS THEY NEED TO BE COOL, CALM AND COLLECT.

Christian Ponder says," I think it's patience. I think it's taking what the defense gives you. Not trying to force to many things. I think my legs are also a help of me. It creates another threat the defense has to account for."

Nick Lenz says, "There have been doubts around the NFL if Ponder can lead this team, but the Vikings they have confidence in the man under center."

Kyle Rudolph says,"We feel like both of us are on a much higher level comfort wise with each other, with the offense and just everything in general."

Jerome Simpson says, "It's great man. We're just trying to get on the same page and just connect. I ask him a question out there, he is so helpful to just help me and tell me like the coverages and what we should run and just being on that same page. And that's one thing that the quarterback and the receiver has to do."

Christian Ponder says, "The receivers are doign a heck of a job and they are going to be a strong point in this offense. I've got a lot closer to them and everybody on this team and the whole staff."

AND THAT COMMUNICATION WILL LEAD TO SUCCESS.

Christain Ponder says, "We're just gonna go out and execute. And that's that and we'll do it and we'll win games."
