    I like Bray and Nassib. Bray has a cannon arm and Nassib reminds me of a young
    Tom Brady when I watch him play.

    Now this list is just as of now those are the guys i see that could be a good backup then a future qb for our team. But if Bray keeps it up he will be a starter i think, or might wait till next year. I wouldnt Mind Nassib tho. I just dont want us going after one in the 5th,6th,7th round you know?? time to start preparing for the future. Bc we aint going far with Byron if Ben is out long. I havent looked at the free agent list either i say Draft one this year, sign a different free agent. Make Batch a coach and just get rid of Byron after this year

    Haha... He looks like him,wears #12,commands the field like Tom,reads D well,strong
    armed/accurate and a leader. Hell... I like the kid. He'll go late 2nd early 3rd probably.
    This years crop of QB's isn't spectacular.

    Need to start soon, but this QB class isnt that strong, but still think we can find a guy. My plan would be get rid of Batch and Byron after this year. Make Batch a coach for something, then go after a free agent not someone old either, then draft a guy that could be our future qb!!

    yeah I'm tired of going through each year with batch and lefty as our backups...I like batch over lefty, but lefty has a hell of an arm, just wish he was more accurate

    No Thanks ... This year is to good on the Defensive side of the ball ... QB class is meh ... so you want to spend a top 1st 2nd or 3rd round pick on a QB?? ... no thanks

    Sign a veteran backup ... Ben still has like 5+ years left ... it's way to early to spend that early of a pick on a QB yet
