That's an overstatement, but I do agree it's apparent that whatever unremarkable assets Ponder brought weren't given enough credit for the Vikings success this season. Ponder has been particularly maligned in arguments in favor of Peterson as MVP (i.e. Peterson has carried a team into the playoffs with an incompetent deadbeat as a QB). Not that Ponder is a QB of the future obviously but the Vikings with Webb and Peterson probably would have won about as many games as they would have with Ponder and an average running back.

Put Manning on the Vikings and Peterson on the Broncos and we're worse and the Vikings are better.
