    Based on the caliber of player they are bringing in, I'm thinking Ryan Leaf is our new backup.

    Did Bortles have someone like Hopkins in JAX? Hopkins made Hoyer look competent. At times.

    Still in the league, believe it or not. Matt Ryan's backup.

    It's good to be a QB.

    He had Allen Robinson for a while.

    Right. I think he threw for 30 TDs that year when Robinson was healthy.

    He also led the league in turnovers (18 INT, 14 fumbles).

    Every season is someone's "I told you so" season. LOL

    Here's my prediction:

    Why do people freak out much on who our back up is? IF your starter goes down, you're pretty much fucked. Yeah every now and then a back up comes in and plays real well, but Nick Foles and Tom Brady situations just don't ever happen really but like every 20 years maybe. It just isn't something to have that big of a worry to me. I think Bortles would be an excellent backup especially when your starter is Watson.

    Yes. That's why he's a backup NFL QB. That's what's available.

    Are we no longer filtering anything?

    If your QB goes out for the season, yes. If your' QB goes out for a game or 2, you want someone that's not a complete basketcase. That's why people give a shyt.

    Yeah, well tell them to wake the **** up. Backup QB's usually aren't guys with great careers unless they're almost 40. Bortles is a guy that just recently lost his job, and would actually be a solid guy to come in for the short term and buy some time on his feet to make some plays, he can scramble for 1st downs, and could likely play small ball pretty well. I like the difference and the change up of dealing with Bortles as a backup. I like it.

    I want Weedon back, for no other reason than I like having someone I can call Da Weed Man.

    It's the small things in life that count. :)

    They could get lucky and hit on Roby, sign Verrett and have them stay healthy.

    They draft 3 rookie Ol who all hit and a rookie WR and a RB that are really good. That's not too much luck to ask for is it?

    A cheap FA WR I hope they look at is Justin Hunter

    Half the board members here would have a football orgasm if they drafted 3 o-linemen next month. LOL
