QB Ponder growing into his role as Raiders backup

Some would say that Christian Ponder is a little too young to play the role of a grizzled veteran backup. But that's exactly what the former Vikings quarterback is to the Raiders these days. With incumbent starter Derek Carr out as a precaution, Ponder finds himself in uncharted territory -- as the team's reliable No. 2 option. "It's nice to be out there getting reps," Ponder told...

Minnesota Vikings: Why Ponder and Cassel should be worried

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback situation is in need of a drastic upgrade. Christian Ponder, their first round draft pick back in 2011, has shown that he’s not the answer for the organization, and Matt Cassel is an average quarterback at best. This is why the team drafted Teddy Bridgewater in the 2014 NFL draft hoping that this time perhaps they hit on the right guy. If I had...
