Interesting take.
What I am saying is that everyone wanted Alex Smith out of San Fran when he wasn't living up to the 1st overall pick. Nobody would ever give him the chance to play a complete season, but once he got that chance, he went 13-3 and led the 49ers. Ponder hasn't been the instant savior that everyone was hoping, but I am saying give him a chance. He very well could be Alex Smith v2.0.

The only difference is, Ponder has played on a winning team in his first 3 season, whereas Smith's best starting record in his first 5 seasons was 5-5. The thing is, the 49ers gave him a chance year in and year out and it paid off for them and now it is paying off for the Chiefs.
