    Sorry if this has been mentioned elsewhere, If so I hadn't noticed it. But with the cuts today of Bradlee Van Pelt and Quintin Porter, who does this leave as our third passer, Jared Zabransky?

    If so, I have to say im particularly pleased for the guy, going undrafted after his miraculus end to the season then making a teams roster.

    He played last year in the Fiesta Bowl for Boise State and basically to cut it short being the big underdogs against Oklahoma, they managed to pull out a win in the dying stages of the game, with a late touchdown and then a two point conversion, by using trick plays very rarely seen in todays game ie. the statue of liberty.

    He was then placed on the cover of the new NCAA video game and received alot of hype. Although he was expected to be a late round pick he went undrafted, I have to say I was quite shocked at that fact.

    Have nothing but joy for him if he makes the team somehow.

    Yeah, that would be cool, given what you've just told me! Good luck to the lad.

    But I have to ask..what's the statue of liberty play?

    The last play on that clip, its basically a fake pass out to the wide receiver with one arm while handing the ball of to the tailback with the other, in simple terms a misdirection play. very commonly used when your a kid in the game, I know I used it alot when I was young.

    Took stones to run that play in a 'Bowl game!

    Thanks for the clip and your explanation. Hope the lad makes the squad at QB#3.
