Report: Christian Ponder is on 'much shorter leash' than most realize

By dwetmore@1500espn.com

A national report came out Sunday morning that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is on a shorter leash than many think. That’s a little surprising, given all the talk locally about Ponder’s job security.

Here’s what NFL reporter Jay Glazer had to say about Ponder during the FOX NFL pregame show:

“He’s on a much shorter leash than anybody has any idea about,” Glazer said. “Matt Cassel is in there doing all the right things. I think fans look at it and say this is Ponder’s team. No.

“From a lot of what I’m hearing inside that locker room, he’s on a much shorter leash than anybody has any idea about.”

The idea has been talked about and written about at length this week, following Ponder’s struggles in the Vikings week one loss to the Lions. But it’s a fair rebuttal that the whole team struggled for the better part of the sloppy game.
