Bad Reporting.

The Golden Calf of Bristol never said he did not want to play a position. The only thing he said was that he expected he might get the start if Sanchez ever went down. Of course, you never miss an opportunity to go back to Cam. Cam, Cam, Cam, Cam, Cam, Cam, Cam. At least you are not obsessed with Cam or anything.

How many jerseys you own now?

I'm very close to 57 years old.
I remember the early days of the NFL and AFL merger.
I have watched this game for almost 50 years and I can honestly say during that time I have never seen a single player who doesn't start, who has no pedigree and a very limited skill set, a player who was drafted so high for so minimal talent, a player who's time in the league is passing quickly get so much press and so much attention.

I find it laughable that a guy's image has more bearing on his place in the NFL than his talent. If he were a party animal, drinking, swearing womanizer and a lousy QB, he would have been gone after a year.

There are 32 starting QBs in the league, all of whom are more relevant than The Golden Calf of Bristol. There are another 32 #2 QBs in the league, probably 25 of them more relevant than The Golden Calf of Bristol. That gives me 57 other QBs to talk about, but somehow he gets front page attention every week.

Let him go play in Canada, they'll probably let him wear 3:16 as a jersey number up there.....

I agree that he was drafted waaaaay too high.

However, it has been done before. Doug Flutie was a guy that kept getting chances because he was "a winner" in some coaches eyes. Just did not have the skill set to compete, same with The Golden Calf of Bristol. He should have been drafted in the third round and become a backup and wildcat/situational QB. I do not agree however that he sould be slandered by the papers just because of his faith.

You'll have to explain how he's getting "slandered by the papers because of his faith."

The reality is his "faith" and the rest of his image are likely the majority of the reason he's still on anyone's roster.

With coaches, it doesn't.

With media, and with some fans, it does.

Explain the how's and why's he was drafted as high as he was.
Explain why he's still in the league.
Explain...

...if all that matters is ability and skill set; neither of which he is all that gifted with.

Josh McDaniels was an idiot.

Woody Johnson wanted to sell tickets (and honestly Sanchez sucks too).

Actually, NONE.

But at least The Golden Calf of Bristol gets to defend himself. I know for a fact Cam wouldn't have gotten a chance because they show they don't care for letting him tell his side.

Also, I'm a Jets fan.

People hate on The Golden Calf of Bristol because he's not a qb. Not even close.

He's selfish, overhyped, entitled, and a prima donna.

Dude cant throw the football but because of his image the world is supposed to stop for him? FOH. Im sure he's cashing his paycheck this morning but he thinks he can tell his coaches what he can and cant do? He'll be out of the league in 2 years.

Looked like a pretty good throw to me when he was beating the steelers in the playoffs

no coach has really given the kid a chance. If you let him run a fast paced offense like he did in all of those 4th quarter comebacks who knows he might not ever be playing from behind. But all the nfl experts think they know something and try to tell himwhat works for him. they were wrong about cam and they've been wrong about The Golden Calf of Bristol the whole time. I hope he goes to jax and gets a real shot at playing the game the way he knows how!

People gave up on Flutie for various reasons and then he came back from the CFL and killed it... Yet, was still hated on by Wade Phillips and benched despite his success.

Regardless, he came back and looked the part.

Bottom line: The guy cant throw a football accurately which just so happens to be the #1 qualification of an NFL QB.

The standing up for himself clam would hold weight "IF" he was a good QB

But he's NOT!

SO.... He should be happy getting on the field once or twice a game and not complaining

The Golden Calf of Bristol might want to consider going to the Browns if Chip Kelly is hired there.
