Back in November when folks began to question whether or not his relationship with then girlfriend, now wife, Samantha Steele was affecting his play, Ponder responded.
So now that the word on the street is that one of the reasons former teammate Percy Harvin pushed to be traded was because he doesn’t believe that Ponder is good enough, what does he do? He responds, of course.
“The thing is, there’s no quote strictly from Percy that he was the one saying it,” Ponder said. “I haven’t put too much thought into it. If that was his opinion, that’s unfortunate. But he’s a Seahawk now, so it doesn’t really matter.”
“Seattle wins, because they get him. Percy wins — he got a new contract, which was what he really has been wanting. And we win, because we get some good draft picks.
“People have their opinions. There were things I could have done better (last season). But now that he’s on a different team, his opinion doesn’t really mean much.”
Straight to the point with a little jab at the end. That’s how it’s done.
