What the fug is with this franchise and it's fascination with below-average players?

The same fascination it has with below average coaches and owner?

But in coming here, he knows he will not play ONE down unless Cam is hurt. He's a QB. He wants a shot. He'll always have interest in going somewhere where it's possible to play. It isn't possible here. So this "job" here does not look good. It looks like 16 games on a bench.

Which also translates to 16 games of drawing a paycheck without having to take a beating.

He may indeed view himself as a potential starter, but that doesn't mean the teams that have opportunity will. If they pass on him, being the backup here would be a pretty good fallback. And I'd argue it's a better option than holding out for a starting job that probably isn't coming.

Bottom Line: Someone's gonna wind up with the backup job here, and that someone won't be a top flight QB. Backups are backups for a reason.

But if the pool that we're choosing that guy from is Jimmy Clausen, The Golden Calf of Bristol and Matt Moore, no question I take Moore.

We wouldn't be signing him to start, we'd be signing him to back up

and if you guys remember, Matt Moore is truly one of the best BACK UP QBs in the league.

Him or Campbell I'd be happy with as a backup.

not teh jimmy

lol Randy Fasani.

His first career start was like the hypest thing ever because of how he played in the preseason. Dudes were going nuts talking about how he was gonna own Tampa with his dual threat goodness.

I'd take Jason Campbell, then Matt Moore as a No. 2. Then a bag of stale pretzels, a ball of dryer lint, some dried up pens, a few sticks of rotten carrots, a rusted out 1976 Yugo without doors, and then I'd possibly think about Jimmy as a No. 2.

By definition, aren't backups below average?

If we got Hue Jackson as OC, might make it unlikely that Jason Campbell signs on as a backup. Jackson benched him two or three times out in Oakland (for Bruce Gradkowski, even).

Unknown how those two feel about each other.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
