Level set...

Ponder is a Quinn level bust, not a Russell level. His arm strength limits the type of offense he can run and his decision making has not progressed. He has gotten worse.

Yes, his WRs are terrible. That has nothing to do with him under throwing open players by 5+ yards or chucking rainbows. Quality QBs make his WRs look better. He does the opposite because he can't fire the ball in tight.

He likely has a future as a backup or placeholder, but not at the top of the depth chart.

Vikings need to rebuild. They wasted two years reaching on Ponder, they can't afford to waste more. The search for a new qb has to start. May not be solved immediately, but it has to start.
