MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Christian Ponder is impatient.

He only has 10 starts at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, and he's in charge this year of a young, rebuilding squad in a difficult division.

Ponder says he wants to win now. He insists the Vikings don't have wait their turn, that they lost enough close games last season to believe things can turn their way in 2012.

That's the kind of confidence he needs on the field, for him to build off an erratic start to his NFL career. Ponder had a few good games, but many of them were marked by poor decisions and jarring hits he took in the pocket.
