Who, as an example, would be a veteran we could bring in to be that could be a #2, could start, and wouldn't command a big contract?

Im not sure of other teams QB situations and contracts but I sure as hell know Jake can't play.

Good luck finding any 3rd string QB's in the league that are actually good enough to play and win.

Why? Because every team should have an All-Pro 3rd string QB?

Our team has many holes...we don't even have a starting QB yet we're worried about a 3rd string "veteran" QB because deep down...people can't get over their Delhomme lovefest.

Luckily none of this meaningless conversation we have here on the Huddle actually has anything to do with what the Front Office does.

It has nothing to do with a "lovefest." We need a veteran QB. Delhomme is a veteran QB, a high character guy and can be signed for cheap. It makes good business sense. Everyone freaking out about the idea of bringing him back and saying that we need to "get over him" and "move on" are really being more emotional about this than those of us who understand that it would be a smart move for the franchise to bring Delhomme back.

Come someone come up with a better argument than

"get over it. he used to played for us so he obviously should never be on the team again."

Or...perhaps someone could propose a better veteran QB option?! Nah, that'd be asking too much.

I wouldn't mind having Brodie Croyle as our backup. He's been in the league a couple of years, shouldn't cost much if KC doesn't decide to tender him, and wouldn't be too much of an obstacle to (hopefully) starting Andrew Luck. Keep Pickles at 3rd string to develop into a capable backup, or see what you can get in trade and re-sign Moore to that spot if possible.

This works even if you let all three or four battle it out in Training Camp, and allows the best to shine for the #1 QB spot with the new coach - best man win and all that. Honestly feel it will be the first time in years that the competition for roster spots and positions on the depth chart will truly be "open" and not just rote talk.

Ok i will

I believe Jake offers nothing substantial as a QB, in any way shape or form

He went 2-2? First off all that fuging annoying QB wins/losses stat is emphasized way more than it should be, and if Kasay doesn't miss a game winning field goal he's 1-3 with his awful performance this year

second of all, I'd rather have 2 QBs, (one rookie top draft prospect and one veteran, such as Seneca Wallace who can actually play well and doesn't turn the ball over like he's sandbagging to cash in on a bet), and then commit that extra roster spot to defensive line depth or something else than actually give a roster spot to delhomme

and don't say it doesn't have anything to do with it being Delhomme and missing him because if it doesn't you would be making a similar case for every other poo backup in the league. Yes it does have something to do with him being delhomme, and don't deny it when you said just earlier in this thread "BRING THE RAGIN CAJUN HOMEEE!!!"

My arguement had nothing to do with 3rd string, reread.

It's no surprise you support Jake. You still think Godfrey is actually good.

Thanks for finally giving a rational argument instead of just attacking those who disagree. I think your 2 QB proposal makes a lot of sense, but probably won't happen because we won't cut Jimmy.

Also, me saying "Bring the Ragin Cajun home" has nothing to do, logically, with the reasons that I gave for signing him. Notice that I put that phrase AFTER I gave a reasonable argument, not before. It's irrelavent that he's the Ragin Cajun. What is relavent is that he's a veteran who has been to the Super Bowl, is a high character guy, and won't demand a big contract.

The point is that we are, in all likelihood, going to sign a veteran QB to be our #3. Maybe Jake doesn't offer anything substantial other than mentorship, but 3rd string QB's are 3rd string QB's for that very reason. You can't have a 3rd string QB and have someone capable of starting and producing--they're mutually exclusive. If they were good enough to produce they wouldn't be a 3rd string guy.
