"We probably are more confident with him back there because with the other guys, there wouldn’t be as much film as there is on Ponder. But we feel good about it.

Thursday night games cause headaches for NFL players, coaches - Washington Times
The games haven't been as crisp as their Sunday counterparts — including the one last week, in which the Dolphins defeated the Bengals 22-20 in overtime on a safety. That's partly a product of the modified game plan, which has forced coaches to reallocate their time and effort around existing schedules, and the health of the players, who are asked to play two games in five days.
