Vikings | Christian Ponder can lead team

Minnesota Vikings DL Jared Allen said he believes QB Christian Ponder will emerge as a leader this upcoming season. "He has all the ability in the world," Allen said. "He is going to take what he's learned this offseason and put it on the field. And can he be consistent with it? That's what I've been telling him." Allen feeks Ponder is ready to take the next step forward. "It's time to take that step in being that franchise quarterback, be that leader on the team," Allen said. "I think the kid's got the right mindset to do it. He's got the right amount of arrogance that you need to be really good in this league, and I'm excited to see what he does this year."
