Yeah our WRs are pretty bad, but both of Ponder's INTs were completely on him. He's still not making good reads, nearly overthrew Rudolph when he was wide open, is trying to throw across his body all the time and hasn't shown any improvement on the mistakes he's been making since last season. He's also not staying in the pocket, at all, but that one could be more on the receivers not getting open if you want to argue it that way. But he is clearly not comfortable in the pocket. And i've never seen a QB underthrow go-routes as much as Ponder does.
