Adrian Peterson is good at football. 210 yds on 21 carries...and he didn't even get a carry in the 4th quarter due to the Packers 11 min drive. He could have had a shot at breaking his own record if Christian Ponder wasn't horrible at being an NFL QB.
I don't buy the "it's the WR's" bit either. Ponder's INT's are inexcusable and are in no way related to bad WR play. One was a horrible decision and the other a horrible throw/decision. That's not on the WRs. Not saying they have a good corps, but at some point Ponder has got to make NFL plays, and he just doesn't. Too bad Speilman and Frazier will never see that reality since their careers are tied to Christian Freaking Ponder.
Ponder seems to throw off his back foot about 30% of the time. Not sure if it is the offensive line or if he isn't very adept at being able to step up into the pocket.
They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
Agreed, he definitely gets happy feet whenever there's even a little bit of pressure. Yesterday was a perfect example. AP was open on a wheel route out of the backfield and had a few steps on the defender. Ponder throws off balance with his goofy throwing motion and underthrows Peterson by about 5 yards.
Wow, that leg of the Giant's lineman was gruesome.
