All week at the Senior Bowl, I heard that the North team had most of the first-round talent. It certainly didn’t look that way Saturday as Chan Gailey’s South squad beat Marvin Lewis’ North team 24-10 on Saturday.
Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder got the MVP award after throwing for 131 yards and two scores on only 13 attempts. We were even more impressed by Miami wide receiver Leonard Hankerson, who capped a strong week with five catches, 99 yards, and this 18-yard score from Ponder.
Ultimately, the practices mean more than the game in Mobile. But Washington’s Jake Locker showed Saturday why many folks still aren’t sure what to make of him. His numbers weren’t bad in the end (98 yards on 10 attempts), but his accuracy looked a little wild on a few throws and he fumbled the ball when trying to extend a play.
Overall, Locker’s North squad really struggled to block and get any offense going. They had one first down in the first half.
Bengals fans watching a Bob Bratkowski offense must have suffered flashback’s to Cincinnati’s 2010 season.
