Da Fitz, unless injured or ill, will be our starting QB for game one with the Redskins. I was hoping Keenum could beat him out, and maybe he still will, who knows? Maybe Savage will. I have a feeling we'll be watching Fitz run the show for while this season.

No don't see him clearing waivers either, so any question about his PS eligibility is moot. I mean what the hell, Billy chose Keenum over TJ, cut him, then the Falcons grabbed him right away as their BU and other teams were probably going to make that move had not ATL done so. If Keenum goes on waivers, he's most likely also gone fast.

I'll be shocked if the Texans don't go into the season with 3 QB's and Savage inactive on game days.

I'm not saying the QB battle is over, just that I don't see us bringing someone in at this point.

Mayock: Patriots' Ryan Mallett is 'legitimate starting QB'
Quote:
"I was blown away. Today I saw a legitimate NFL starting quarterback backing up Tom Brady," Mayock said after Monday's scrimmage versus the Redskins.

"So as the season progresses and we get closer to draft time and what the Patriots can or can't do with him, I think they drafted Jimmy Garoppolo for a reason, as an insurance policy. But trust me, Ryan Mallet's a starting quarterback in this league, and he popped today."

Just laughed at report that Mallett "popped" today. He was schizo at best. Picked a couple times. Multiple INCs in 11 on 11. #Patriotstalk
Now I could understand two different opinions on what was seen but both these comments are on the opposite end of the spectrum from each other.

Agendas? Blindness? You tell me...

Agenda. Mayock probably owes Mallett's agent a favor.

Mayock is prone to embellishment, but I have read much good about how Mallett looks in TC.

Rappaport was quick to retweet it. Probably still convinced the Texans are trading for Mallet.

Full tin foil hate mode ENGAGE: I still think belichick is behind this. Convince national media Mayock/Rappaport to tweet positive things and try to move Mallet since they lose him for nothing after the season. Rapaport started as a Boston sports writer and has ties.

Have to wait for Garoppolo first, and he's not there yet.

Brady goes down they are screwed either way if Mallet is terrible. Should have taken that 6th round pick that Smith was rumored to be dangling in front of him during the draft.

Or they have another 11-5 season like they did with Matt Cassel. Everybody thought the Pats were screwed when Brady went down then too...That system they run can take a mediocre QB and make them very good to great. Don't know what it is or what voodoo they have but...


Never bet against the Hoodie....never....*unless they are playing the Giants in the SuperBowl*

I'd take Mallett over every QB on this roster.

Not sure how much I'd give up to get him, but just the player...I'd take him...

What the heck was that?

Come on.

You want a QB and you don't know the price?

Sorry, but it sounds like just talk.

I haven't sat and thought about how much I'd be willing to trade for Mallett, but right now, I'd take him over every QB on the roster.

What's hard to get about that?

If all of them were free agents signing for the same money, I'd take Mallett easily.

Doesn't mean I'm convinced Mallett is a franchise guy. Just means I feel better about him than the guys we have right now.

And I really like Keenum. I like him more than the other two guys we have. But if he gets out there and gets tunnel vision again, then it doesn't matter. He might get cut.

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?! - [edit] Mallett?

for what it's worth Mike Mayock of the NFL network was reporting from the joint practice of the Pats last week with the Redskins, and he gave a report on Mallett that was really glowing, said he looked like a Starting NFL QB who happens to still be a backup.

Also IIRC Mallett is a FA after the season, might he be a guy that the Texans target next offseason as a FA.

After that report, I will be watching him more this preseason.
