They guy should be Ponders best friend out there yet he isnt getting more than 2-3 looks a game.
The thing about Ponder is that if the play is design to go to a certain player, he'll throw it there even if there's 3 defenders there. Dude just doesn't have the vision or skills to see the whole field and change accordingly to what the defense is giving you.
Now granted, that might take a few years to develop but you can just tell if a guy has it or not and Christian is one that doesn't have it and most likely never will.
