But the point is he doesn't need to lead the team down the field. Just needs 24 yards from where he's standing plus maybe 10-15 to get into Walsh's field goal range. If you're relying on an onside kick, you've got two time outs and the 2 minute warning (it was 2:01 remaining) so you can still put the ball in AP's hands. Ponder's not going to march it 50+ yards down the field, but if you play to your team's strengths, he doesn't have to.
