Jacksonville has a good defense.

Atlanta has the #2 run defense.

Cincinnati has the #3 run defense.

Carolina puts points on the board.

We'll probably still beat Indy & Tennessee @Home.

I think we'll still limp into the play-offs, but then... nothing.

If TJ Yates can't take advantage of this situation and get it done in 2011, then he has wasted a huge chance at being among the NFL's best "Unheralded QBs" who came in and started owning the environment.

My worry is that we're down to only a handful of full practices (in pads, right?) that the new CBA says you can have. He needs to feel pressure, get bumped by our defense in practice, etc.

He needs the QB Simulator Machine every day this whole week...and hope that Kubiak turns him loose a little more next week.

Now, it's even worse. The new CBA deal limits teams to 14 padded practices during the regular season one per week through Week 12, with just three more over the last five weeks...............this will be terrible for someone like Yates or even with a vet.......especially a vet not familiar with the system/terminology.

Kubiak will need to tweak offensive sets. This should challenge him
& we will witness how good of OC he is. TJ just needs more pocket time to make his progressions. Yates has the accuracy, the mindset. He threw to the likes of Nicks, Tate & Little @ North Carolina. Expect to see more emphasis with Texans passing attack. Benefit Andre, Jacoby,
Walter, Daniels & Dreessen.

We fans can thank Jeff Saturday for this.

He's the one who pushed for the new practice rules during the CBA negs.

It's just another way that the NFL's being ruined. The new rules are contributing to the large increase in injuries. IMHO Although you can speak on this topic much more eloquently than I can.

I don't honestly see how bring Favre in would be a bad thing at this point. We're relying on a player in Yates (who I personally didn't think was very good at North Carolina). How much worse could he honestly be than what we have?

Last week I doubt I could have been more opposed to bringing in Favre. Today I think we have to try. Give him a week (give or take) to learn with Yates getting the Atlanta start and see what he can do afterwards. I mean, did we have a first down in the 2nd half? Now that both of our top two QBs are down I don't see how it can create any controversy.

I look at that FA list of qbs and panic sets in. How some of you say no to Brett is beyond me.

We are one hit away from Owen Daniels & James Casey at QB. Maybe Casey can pull his best Tebow impersonation?

I'm trying to keep my cool and think about this, but I just can't imagine what we're going to do right now. Can someone please talk me off the ledge?

Face it everyone this team is now one and done in the playoffs for sure. These two losses are much bigger than losing Manning, Williams, Johnson, and you name it. The QB is the most important player on any team.

(Sigh)

You're right. I bet a prior history of sexting is not exactly the best way to become an employee of Robert McNair.

Can't we just get him a freaking Go Phone from Wal-Mart and write into his contract that he can only use the Go Phone from now on?
