Josh Freeman has had seasons where he posted 25 TD/6 INT and 27 TD/17 INT. The 25/6 season definitely wouldn't happen from most backup QBS, and to pull a 27/17 season out of a backup would be a win.
I don't see any risk in bringing the guy in to be the #3 behind Ben and Bruce. Sit and learn the offense, no rush to be the star or savior, and see what he has.
for the record - I think Gradkowski would be fine playing with the 1st team offense. Not great, but he would be ok. Even Ben would suck behind the 2nd team O-Line.
cut jones NOW
They should bring back OMAR JACOBS
I was thinking that the Seahawks would likely end up putting Terrelle Pryor on the waiver wire but now I hear that he's playing pretty well and is the #2 QB up in Seattle. I know he has some charcter issues but I kind of liked him as a potential young backup to Ben.
He was a spoiled kid at OSU, and was suspended for taking "gifts" right? Tattoos i think.
He has passing the ball issues though, should really be a TE, ive always said that. He didnt want to play in pittsburgh though, he said he wanted to get away from his home town area.
Guy was one of the best basketball players ive ever seen
Speaking of Omar Jacobs, if 2013 was too soon to draft a developmental QB, then picking Jacobs in 2006 was 100X loopier.
Well i think the general idea of drafting a QB to develop is to get a decent backup and a Matt Schaub, Matt Flynn, Matt Cassle kind of return on them. Basically you draft someone named Matt and trade them for a second round pick.
Drafting Jacobs and Dixon were trying to see if they could find a gem to back up injury prone ben and maybe trade them away, drafting Jones was more like a look to the future with the same idea that he could be traded away. I thought for sure they were going to take Tyler Bray, and even Mettenberger this season would have been ok with me if they wanted to grab him in the 5th or 6th
