    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.

    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.

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

    Trent Richardson is a waste of space. I can't believe two different teams wasted first round picks on him.

    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.

    Down to 12 to 1 for Indy to come back.

    Back up to 30 to 1 and very close to sticking a fork in Indy.

    One of the reasons it's so hard to make a real big comeback is that there is no room for error.

    That last Luck interception, followed by the FG, was a dagger

    Oh well, KC covers the 1 & 1/2 point spread and that's what matters.

    Right, LOL
