Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder had nothing but props for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck Tuesday. Chatting with Vikes play-by-play man Paul Allen, Ponder said “things were going right” for Minnesota late in the game Sunday, but Luck was the better quarterback -- leading Indianapolis to a 23-20 win.
Ponder was also asked about throwing downfield more often. But he repeated what he said Monday, saying that he’s “not going to force anything that’s not there.” Ponder enters Week 3 against San Francisco with a 75 percent completion rating...tops in the NFL.
Ponder on other topics:
Facing the 49ers: "We expect to win ... but we know it's going to be a tough one. We're looking forward to playing them."
Percy Harvin's toughness: "We expect that he's going to make it all 16 games ... plus the playoffs."
On what he can do to improve his game: "I can be better in the pocket. Two fumbles? That’s not going to win too many games. Right now I've been scrambling to run and I need to keep my eyes down field and scramble to throw."
