EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman is giving quarterback Christian Ponder a big vote of confidence.
Spielman says ``I have full, 100 percent belief that Christian Ponder's going to be our quarterback heading into the future.'' Spielman made the comments on Wednesday during a bye-week session with reporters.
Ponder is in his first full season as the Vikings starter, and second since he was a first-round draft choice in 2011. He has been up and down this year and twice failed to throw for more than 65 yards in a game. But he had a nice bounce-back last week in a win over Detroit that moved the Vikings to 6-4.
Spielman says it's important to remain patient with Ponder has he goes through a three-year development plan.
