Put forth the type of year the Vikes would wish from Ponder right now
Orton and Ponder are pretty similar I think. Give them just one halfway decent guy to throw to and a bunch of trash, a great defense and great back, they might manage the game well and get your team either in or very close to the playoffs. Give them better who knows, but they'll rarely carry your team to a win.

Their stats will probably be similar too.

Orton 15 games 58%, 3000 yards, 18 TD, 12 INT
Ponder 12 games 62%, 2305 yards, 14 TD, 11 INT

I just don't think that makes him the worst QB in the league, but average instead. If the Vikings would ever try to get a good #2 WR things would maybe be different.
