IMO, Porter lost the #3 QB spot, and Pickett was the next one in line

No.... Porter made the cut tonight...

Porter is a rook and can be groomed. Plus, He made some good plays. Picket didnt unseat him imo

How much do you want to groom a 3rd string QB? I would much rather have Pickett. At least he's had some game experience, albeit very little. I don't think I'd want an undrafted rookie QB as our 3rd stringer. Granted, if Pickett or Porter ever got significant playing time anyway our season is probably a lost cause anyway, but I would rather see Pickett behind Sage. That's just me though.

Pickett might have unseated Carr though.

Pickett looked a ton better than Porter. I think we are going to have say goodbye to that 7th round pick.

No question in my mind that Pickett earned the #3. He has experience (has started an NFL game) and is young. I loved his ability to pick up the first down on a 4th down play!!! I don't buy the "bring a young rookie along as your #3" argument unless we're talking someone like Vince Young. Does anyone remember the last "young rookie" we were going to bring alone (Dave Ragone)?

Vinny is one of numerous knowledgable fans on these boards. People tend to ask questions of the guys that stick out as "knowing what they are talking about".

I tend to disagree with Vinny alot ..that could mean that im more ignorant than the average joe, or that i just dont think along the same lines .. but ya wont find me asking for Vinny's opinion much.. mostly cause I can expect that his opinion will be the exact opposite of mine hehe.

I don't think that we will be carrying more than 2 QBs this year, in order to maximize the number of true contributing players. The 3rd will likely be a practice squad.

If you find the cross section of Grid and my thoughts you will find the truth...in the middle somewhere.

I'm not sure what they do with QB3 PD. New coaches have new ideas about how they want to handle the roster. To me the most interesting angle on this is to see if we pick up Van Pelt if the Broncos cut him.

From what I've seen he really does his homework. I was just curious as to whether or not he holds some sort of position with the team.

Same goes for you Grid, Infantrycak etc.

keep up the good work guys. i appreciate the insight.
