    Vince Lombardi's famous Packer teams were quarterbacked by Bart Starr who was backed up by Zeke Bratkowsky, who was dam good in his own right.

    You always want developmental QB's on the roster. If you end up trading them , great , you usually get a premium return.
    I'd rather have a quality backup than not. Just look what happened when Schaub went down and there was nothing behind him , we were QB hunting for years. Finally you get Watson , that doesn't mean you don't want / need another , hell Watson only played 7 games that first year. You needed a guy then ….and what you had was Tom Savage , empty between the ears.

    Peterman was abysmal last time he saw an NFL field & he couldn't stick with the QB hungry Bills …..I'd rather suit up @Texan_Bill

    Kaepernick …. Might still be NFL capable and I wouldn't mind giving him a looksee but I cant see OB bringing that sideshow on board.

    Vince Lombardi also coached at a time when QBs didn't have game rules themselves protecting them. You can't compare the football in the 60s to football in 2019. Almost entirely different games.

    Exception to every rules and the Eagles didn't really know what they had in Foles. This is like saying Tom Brady is an example of why teams should always draft QBs in the 6th round.

    And if Brady gets hurt this year they have Brian Hoyer. Before that, well here is the list:

    Rohan Davey (2002-04), Matt Cassel (2005-08), Brian Hoyer (2009-11), Ryan Mallett (2011-13), Garoppolo (2014-17) and Jacoby Brissett (2016)

    Not a lot of quality backups there though I suppose you could make the argument of them being trade bait. Though at the same time with as many holes as we have can we afford to use a pick for someone that is a project? Also Tome Savage WAS our developmental QB and he had been baking for 3 years at that point. BoB doesn't exactly have a great QB picking track record. Maybe we can ask Rick Smith to come back just to pick a QB then leave again. :kitten:

    In all seriousness we had a good backup in AJ, he was about all you could ask for in a backup. NFL experience, cheap price, understands what is job is, able to keep the ship floating till the captain is back at the helm and a hot wife. Really what more could you want, him getting hurt so soon is a damn shame.

    Wait maybe we need a saying, something along the lines of "the exception proves the rule."

    In a smaller league also... they say the talent pool is diluted now

    The talent pool is most certainly diluted to the point where the NFL can't support any more teams. If that wasn't the case, then everybody would have a franchise QB with an excellent LG.

    You know, now that you typed that, I'm thinking that's what I meant to type. Guess I hit the Pax a little early today. LOL

    Didn't the Eagles sign him to start until Wentz was ready? A placeholder more than an unknown.

    Easy killer, it's actually more like a passing joke about your absolute comment and it's incredibly recent and spot-on exception.

    That's like saying you can predict the stock market by shapes on a past performance chart.
