I really want to see JFF do shit like that also to troll the NFL. He trolled the NCAA with his autographs already now he needs to troll the NFL.

He really did succeed in making the NCAA look foolish, I will give him that. That's probably more due to his handlers though.

Short, with questionable arm strength. I see the next Ty Detmer. I hope I'm wrong.

He would probably be better suited as slot receiver.

Sorry, but no way. He is good but not in the same tier as those 4.

Why are people obsessed with Backup legends? 

 

When will we all learn from from the mistakes of  Matt Schaub, Kevin Kolb, Derek Anderson, Matt Cassel, Matt Flynn and Sage Rosenfels? 

 

You do not invest your future in a backup. Tom Brady was an outlier.

That's basically how the Seahawks got so good. They hit on Wilson and used the savings of not paying top $ for a QB to really upgrade the team.

Nice work if you can get it but banking on finding another Wilson type player in the middle rounds is delusional. Like it or not but 18 million a year with about 50 million guaranteed is the price for a top 50% starting QB. I don't love the signing for the Bears but they've spent decades looking for a solid starting QB. Ask them how easy it is to "draft a young QB to develop under a veteran."

Ask a Texans fan how paying a veteran QB $15M+ worked out the past few years... If you know your guy doesn't have the ability to elevate their game in big moment situations then what's the point of sticking with them.

Apparently it led to a conference championship 2 out of the last three years.

Division champ 2 out of the past 6 years. The Texans never made it to the conference championship game.
post #1046 of 4985

Division champs mind you in one year where Manning was out and Luck was a rookie.

I am a Colts fan for the day. Do not want to face Kansas City
post #1048 of 4985
Trent Richardson is a waste of space. I can't believe two different teams wasted first round picks on him.
post #1049 of 4985
This game is not unfolding as I thought it would.

Indianapolis, down 38 - 17 right now has about a 1 in 25 chance to come back.

KC, missing Charles has been impressive.
