But the lingering stench of a typical Ponder performance isn't easily forgotten for some fans, which explains this tweet from Faux John Madden:
INJURY REPORT: Christian Ponder reportedly dislocated his non interception throwing shoulder tonight.— Faux John Madden (@FauxJohnMadden) November 8, 2013
That's a joke, obviously, which is how everyone took it -- except Ponder's wife, Sam Steele Ponder, who also serves as an ESPN reporter.
@FauxJohnMadden ...says the guy using a parody account who asks the injured guys wife for career help? "I'm a lil confused by ur tactics..."— Sam Ponder (@samsteeleponder) November 8, 2013
So take heed, would-be mockers of Christian Ponder's quarterbackin' skills who are also seeking advice about breaking into the business. Sam is watching, waiting.
