The Golden Calf of Bristol behind Cam after it was the other way around at UF. Interesting.

I hope AE is not an option at QB, nothing against the guy but I hope he doesn't play for the Panthers next year.

I'd rather have a backup who is an effective pocket passer than get a runner who can't throw for poo- and all of the mobile QB backup options are poor passers. Nobody is going to come close to duplicating Cams combination of skills, so a guy who can at least muster a respectable passing game should be the priority.

Cam's backup needs to be able to do 1 thing....hang on the pocket and go downfield. That is what Chud is about

Obviously you've never seen Russell Wilson play QB. You can argue he is too short to play in the NFL, (he's not) but he led the nation in pass efficiency at Wisconsin and set the NCAA record for consecutive attempts without an interception while at NC State.

The player rep for Donovan McNabb was noncommittal when asked if the free agent might accept a backup job this season.

"We really haven't discussed that yet," the agent said. "Right now he's weighing all of his options." McNabb is "keeping his options open" and "hasn't closed the door on anything." We wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he's thrown his last NFL pass.

I think he would work as Cam's BU, I have a feeling DM is a lot like Favre, he wants to play not mentor. But maybe with the ending in sight...

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
