    Agreed, gotta have someone back there, especially with this O-line.

    What's Plummer doing? He's already used to running for his life...

        Why didn’t we kick the tires on...............Tebow!!!!
        Same reason we don't on Kaepernick. No reason to go after guys in their 30s that have been out of the league for a number of years.

          I'd rather they experiment with Driskel than Bortles.

            I'd rather see what Driskel and Rypien have too. I understand wanting a vet presence, but I don't know why there the obssession with mediocre vets. Flacco was bad. Bortles is bad. Just a waste of cap space, really.

              I was hoping for Chad in time for another Halloween party.

                Chad Kelly and Trevor Siemian are available as well.

His name came up and they were saying that teams can protect PS players this year and Sloter is a protected PS player. So it would require a trade to acquire him.
                  I think Kyle is a free agent right now.

                      Ok. I wasn't super sure. No matter, though. Sounds like it's gonna be the Driskel/Bortles show for about a month.

                        I was joking. I'm good with not touching either. Kap had his chance here, so we all know that ship has sailed. And Tebow.............

                          Well these guys rushing are pretty big in stature....I think you just insulted the turnstile as it would do a better job slowing down these big fellas.

                            There are some people available that Bortles is better than...but the list is very short

                            I would take an undrafted rookie over Bortles.

                              Chad is who I really would've liked to see get a shot. He had all the physical tools, just too much of a head case. But the bizarre way he lost his chance, you just know that Elway's not going to look his way at all. Just weird how he went from zero to front page news, just as he was about to get a real chance.

                                I don't even think he's better than Driskel. If Lock is only going to be out for 2-3 weeks, the sensible option would be to roll with Driskel.
