That is not a typo, Ponder has connected only FOUR times when airing the ball out. 192 of his 228 passes (84%) are within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage.

Ponder is definately in the running for worst QB in the league. Undeniably the weakest arm among starters and suspect decision making putting him in the running. If not for Peterson and Harvin's/Rudolph's YACs, he would look even worse.
Cassel/Quinn are in a similar situation. Not quite as tilted as The AP, but any offence the Chiefs get comes from Charles, and opposing defences know it.
