Christian Ponder reportedly hasn’t looked sharp this spring

Tom Pelissero and Judd Zulgad of 1500ESPN.com haven’t been very impressed with quarterback Christian Ponder this spring.

“Watching Christian Ponder out there, the footwork didn’t look great,” Zulgad said, via NFL.com. “The passes didn’t look all that sharp.”

Zulgad says Ponder lacks sharpness.

“You know what’s not there? Crispness,” Zulgad said. “There’s not a sharpness. At times you would expect things to look second nature to Ponder. … That’s not what we’re seeing so far, but like I said, it’s minicamp.”

This makes sense, since it sounds like there’s a chance Ponder could lose his starting job to Matt Cassel.
