Vikings HC Leslie Frazier revealed that Christian Ponder is locked-in as the team's starting QB. "We're going into it with Christian being our starting quarterback," Frazier said. "If something were to happen to Christian because of injury, we feel like we have a capable backup in Joe (Webb). But there's no competition as to, 'Joe has to do this to beat out Christian.' Christian, it's his job. We're trusting that he's going to be the guy to lead us to where we want to go this next season." Although he flashed good arm strength and mobility in 10 starts last year, Ponder finished with a 54% completion rate and 13 TDs to 13 INTs. He'll need to improve his decision-making and accuracy in order to become a fantasy factor in 2012. The job security is nice, but Ponder is still only a late-round flier in drafts this summer.
