    As I said elsewhere, having Brink is probably a better option than Grossman anyway. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Grossman gets healthy.

    He'll get an injury settlement, released ,and then he might be available later in the year if needed.

    No wonder Brink was still in town and dining with Brisiel!
    Maybe he went to a psychic! :cool: [​IMG]

    Has anyone ever seen him play in a game before? If he plays next week, I'm sure he'd look better than Grossman did.

    He was almost OK last year, but I thought Boyd was a better 3rd stringer than Brink. But I'll take Brink over Grossman as far as the 3rd string QB goes.

    He gets us through camp/preseason and we start the season with two QBs on the roster as usual. Could have started with three if Grossman had been healthy and showed something, I don't see us keeping Brink on the active roster though.

    If we can combine Boyd and Brink, we'd have quite good a QB.

    Boyd is quick on his feet and is a good runner.
    If we carry 3 QBs, it's good to have a guy like that on the roster.

    But in the long term, I believe Brink has more potential to develop into "more" of a complete QB.

    He was quite streaky in college.
    I think he completed 23 straight in one game, including some long ones.

    He's not the runner Boyd is, but he might be better on his feet than Sage.

    There'll be 3 QBs around at all times, even if one is on the practice squad. Since Grossman was signed, and is not eligable for the practice squad, that tells me Kubiac was planning on 3 QBs on the active roster. That's probably one reason for all this talk we've been having about players playing multiple positions.

    Is Brink good enough to be on the active roster? Well, if Grossman was, Brink is. But I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    Unless I'm missing something, we should be learning about two cuts now, right? With Campbell and Brink both signing... wonder who's gone?

    I just still have visions of Brink in the last 2008 preseason game.............4 for 17, and an interception. If he shows similar stats his next showing, I will be praying not only for Schaub's, but also for Orlovsky's good health.:headhurts:
