He hasn't looked that way of late. The second-year pro has failed to eclipse 63 passing yards in two of the Vikings' last three games, a startling level of production that has some wondering if Ponder's job is in jeopardy.
"I really haven't thought about pulling him for a game and taking him out for a series or anything like that," Frazier said Sunday, via ESPN Twin Cities.
Frazier might not be considering a change in personnel, but it's obvious some type of adjustment is necessary. Percy Harvin's frustration with the passing game boiled over Sunday in a heated conversation with Frazier that Fox cameras captured. Meanwhile, running back Adrian Peterson's magnificent 182-yard performance went to waste.
Ponder's backup is Joe Webb, a 2010 sixth-round draft pick who already might be at his ceiling. Ponder's job is safe for now. But for how long?
