It is what it is, but certainly nothing to get excited about.
It's about as exciting as Newton being named starter at RT.

The choices were made public... Yates, Keenum, Fitz, and Savage. Anyone other than Fitz at this point in the season and I would strongly question the wisdom of the coaching staff.

lol! Nobody is jumping from the cliff about it, and while expected, let's not act like it is anything but a mere formality on the part of the coaching staff.

Most of us are just having fun with it. Desperate times and all.

We'll see how long into the season Fitzpatrick remains the starter.

I give it four to five games.

You know what's up in the back of your mind, but you don't really think about it.

Until, that is, you're sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's office...

Right now, I'm in that waiting room.



tbh, the defense is the only thing I'm really looking forward to with any expectation.



Some would spin that as 'progress'!!
Good analogy,

Agreed about the defense

It would be progress if Savage was found to be the QB of the future. Or a QB (Mariotta/Winston) was drafted in next yrs draft.

Big deal. We all knew one of the four of them would get picked. So now we got Fitzbeard, Doc Savage, and ???? as QBs for next season. Not like half or more of this board didn't predict that.

When Pete Carroll has competition wednesdays and says its open,he means it. O'Brien said it,but didn't mean it. At least in Minny they're saying its open comp too. Think about 2 non drafted qbs and a rookie 4th rd pick in the qb room.

Matt Flynn didn't get any guarantees to be the starter even though he was the highest paid qb on roster. Camp rolled around and wilson took the job.

or.. how about 2 undrafted QBs and a 6th round pick... Wouldn't this QB room be a waste of time:

Kurt Warner
Jeff Garcia
Tom Brady


... just pointing out that where they were drafted has little to do with their potential and certainly it has very little to do with their ability to understand and break down information on film and participate in developing a game plan.

I wasn't referring to the salaries. It seemed clear to me that Savage (and I'm very high on him) is a project... Fitzpatrick and Savage are the only two QBs on the roster that O'Brien brought in...

I think it is an overreaction to assume the competition wasn't "real". It is quite possible that Fitzpatrick was clearly the best option at this point. Also, I don't think the announcement means that Fitz will definitely start week one, but it is intended to align reps and bring some early definition to the team as they head into camp.

We've made it through all but two days of OTA's. A week or so ago OB said he'd be going into TC with only 3 QB's. He said he'd be releasing a QB sometime between (then) and TC. He also said Fitz would be starting game 1. TJ had a fair shot to win the 2nd position. Case beat him out. Case closed, for now. All you have to do is pay attention.

You think O'Brien didn't start the best player, I think he just flushed the biggest turd. Either way they're all turds.
