Vikings Training Camp News: Christian Ponder Learning From Mistakes

Christian Ponder took a beating in the Minnesota Vikings' game against the San Diego Chargers on Friday, so Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities writes that on Sunday, Ponder spent much of practice trying to learn from the game, so he wouldn't be taking as many sacks.

Ponder said:

"A couple of times, I tried to escape outward rather than moving forward, and that hurt me. Something easily correctable, though, and something that I've been in the habit of doing all camp until Friday."

Ponder was taken down five times during his stint in the game, with four of them being avoidable in his opinion. He says he will continue to work on these improvements to have them down going into the regular season.
