Seahawks | Ponder released from team
Tue, 24 Oct 2006 17:42:05 -0700

Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports Seattle Seahawks WR Willie Ponder has been released from the team.

Just throwing it out there.  Seahawks had to make a cut to activate a QB.  Ponder has 2 KR returns for TDs and a solid average.  I know Pitt has been doing a solid job, but this guy has proven he can take it to the house.

Since Buchanon and Hilliard are handling punt returns I am all for the Bucs picking up Ponder to team with Pittman on kick returns.  Jones would be the odd man out.

Do we really need another return specialist?

I like Jones and Pittman but Buchanon is an upgrade over Jones in terms of a big play threat.  And the same can be said of Ponder over Pittman.

Hell, at this point....if Oprah Winfrey could take KO back for a TD, I'd say sign her.

The old Oprah could play better on the d-line than Bogger. Maybe Tony will sign her if she gets fat again. lol

Next year could be Ponder on KR and Buchannon on PR. Good upgrades, it gives us a chance to break a few.

Actually I like the rotation with the Punt returns.  I like that we rely on Ike and his sure hands when we are backed up and give the new guy a chance to break one when field position permits...Ike has done a nice job all together receiving and returning...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

Lets not get carried away, Ponder is not even on the team yet.

There must be something mentally wrong with Ponder. The Giants cut him before the seasona nd he led the NFC in return yardage for the first half of last year.
