The last news I saw....it sounded like he was playing. We sure could use a few players returning to the lineup.....I don't hold much stock in Ponder. Some of the other talent have stepped up to the task tho....
I think you'll see a lot of old school smash em in the mouth running tonight, pretty hard to pass in a monsoon. Put another lineman in and snap it right to the running back. Safer than letting Ponder touch the ball.
Even with Ponder QBing (Man, I HOPE he does), I wouldn't be the least bit shocked if the Queens win...With Ponder, just feed the ball to the backs every play and I give them 50/50 shot at winning. I don't care if it's 3rd and 12, I'd be running it. The sad thing is I'm mostly serious. the Pack can't seem to stop a Pee Wee RB this year, whether they stack the box or not. As close to a guaranteed 3-15 yds a play as it comes.
If Teddy is playing, I'd put my $ on the Queens and like my odds. So long as his ankle is functional, between feeding the ball to the RBs, running the option and having him scramble, I'm not sure the D can stop him. He looked pretty darn good throwing last week, too.
I must go shower now. I always feel dirty any time I say anything positive about the Queens.
I'll admit it's a bit of a crapshoot if Ponder takes the helm.....and it's tough to win a Lambau. But when I briefly watched the Pack.....I was un-impressed. The Packer defense has LOTS of holes in it. Maybe it depends on which Packer team shows up?
