Part II : Projecting Christian Ponder's 2012 Campaign

+

This was too fantastic not to share. This article takes 20 second year QB's since 1998 (who met certain criteria), calculates the percent of change between the first year and second year stats, then projects them on Ponders 2011 stats. Hope you enjoy

Christian Ponder's Rookie Year

9

Over at the DN. Look at some of his stats compared to the greatest. "If you buy the premise of this projection, and you compare that projection to other rookies this year that started and played all 16 games, he stacks up pretty well. Cam Newton had a record breaking year for a rookie QB, so it’s hard to compare Ponder to Newton, but when you compare Ponder’s projection to a couple other great QBs during their first full seasons as a starter, his stats look pretty comparable again. His stats are pretty similar to Andy Dalton, who most would agree had a great year as a rookie, making it to the playoffs. In fact, Ponder's average stat line in the previous paragraph from his adjusted season total also looks respectable."

Minneapolis Downtown Council Unveils 15-year Plan

3

The Vikings' new stadium would be located on the western edge of downtown, near the Twins' Target Field. The plan's 10 initiatives include: 1. Double the downtown residential population to 70,000. 2. Transform Nicollet Mall into a "must see" regional and even national destination. 3. Build Gateway Park, a "central park" that would create a "grand connection" between downtown and the Mississippi River. 4. Create a consistently compelling downtown experience of arts and entertainment. 5. Establish a downtown sports district that includes a new Vikings stadium and a renovated Target Center. 6. Lead the nation in entertainment options. 7. Create and sustain a green infrastructure. 8. Forge connections to the University of Minnesota, including a residential district on the Metrodome site. 9. End street homelessness. 10. Launch a festival of ideas, apparently a festival concept that's been used successful in other cities.

This was posted over at the DN. Thought it would give you Bronco fans would have a good laugh.

"I don't like going to Detroit," Jared Allen told MLive.com. "I'll be honest. It's gloomy, it sucks. Everything is brown, and then there is snow on the ground. There's like brownstones everywhere, and I'm like, 'Awesome.' I don't know, I couldn't do it. If I had to live in Detroit, I think I'd just drown myself in the river that was across the way."

Bowl Game Rankings, By Spencer Hall

8

"25. Champs Sports Bowl: Florida State vs. Notre Dame. The two offenses stand at a revolving door. "After you," says the FSU offense, leaning forward and catching its head in the door. "Here, let me help you," the Notre Dame offense says, freeing FSU's head but getting its tie caught in a subway grate. "No sir, permit me to assist you," the FSU offense says as it walks into the street and it hit by a truck. "Egads," says the Notre Dame offense as its suspenders droop and catch the top of an onrushing express train below. Both teams specialize in the latest in offensive implosion techonology, so you'll want to watch. For science's sake, you know." Spencer hall is the head of EDSBS. I don't necessarily agree with all of his rankings, but the sheer hilarity of everything he writes makes it worth the read.
