Forget the fact that Christian Ponder has struggled mightily all season.
Center John Sullivan said he would prefer to have Ponder taking snaps from him than either Josh Freeman or Matt Cassell this Sunday against Dallas.
Sometimes, merit outranks ability. In this instance this might be the case. Ponder has had a poor season but isn't someone his teammates seem too down on.
Sullivan said his grit last week against Green Bay spoke volumes.
“[Ponder] prepared really hard and he went out there and laid it all on the line,” Sullivan said, via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “You know, you see that last run that he made when things were getting out of reach [a 19-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter against the Packers on Sunday] and he's still out there fighting until the end. I mean, that's not my decision. But I'd love to see him stay back there, of course.”
