    I have always said Jake is good qb, not truely elite (imo) but a good qb that fits our system.

    Parsons wont be on any practice squads

    there are at least 2 other teams that want him in camp right now. If they dont give him some playing time in the next couple of games they should do the right thing and release him so he can get an opportunity with a team that wants him. He's a prototypical QB, Tall, good arm, great field presence and able to pick up the playbook quickly. This kid is a diamond in the rough and everytime he gets on the field he impresses. Kubiak knew what he was doing when he picked this guy up. The Broncos are DEEP at QB!! the line up of Jake, Jay and Parsons in my opinion is the deepest most talented at QB in the entire league.

    Thanks for reminding me. I think about how some posters wanted BVP to be the starting qb and it just runs chills up and down my spine.

    At least they are better than the discussions a year ago, and 24 months ago about how he should be the starting QB for the Broncos.

    He should be on a scout team if he is kept anywhere. Hopefully then we can also stop having discussions every few months on how he should be playing safety or TE, or OLB or some other genious plan out there.

    He didn't look good in camp when I saw him on Monday (although, he did have one good pass play).

    I think a trend is developing with BVP.

    He's a good athlete, but not a good QB. Other teams were thinking of drafting him before we did, but only if he was willing to learn another position. Since he wasn't, he was left when we made our last pick.

    Personally, I think if he doesn't make it this year, he won't be playing anywhere. I don't think it's likely he will be picked up by anyone.

    If he really loves football like he says he does, I think he would be better off learning to play safety (ala John Lynch). He's obviously tough, but he lacks the tangibles you need to play QB.

    Considering Jay's progress, to answer your question, I think he is making it easy for Shanny to go the 2 QB route again.
    He will NOT play safety..... Not because he doesn't want to but because he is too slow..... He runs a 4.84 40 yard dash. That will not cut it in an NFL secondary and any safeties that are close to that slow have good instincts and have been playing a while. He would have neither. BVP is not a terribly good athlete compared to players at positions other than QB......

    He should be on a scout team if he is kept anywhere. Hopefully then we can also stop having discussions every few months on how he should be playing safety or TE, or OLB or some other genious plan out there.

    Grasp of the playbook or not, Cutler is already better than BVP is.

    I like BVP athletism and think he could still contribute to the team. Just not at the QB position. If he is determined to stay at the QB spot...then he better start packing.

    I don't think that Todd counts against us till he comes back. I could be wrong but suspended means he does not exist.

    Let me add if he does count against our number then he should be gone.

    And while everyone thinks that cutler is the best thing since sliced bread. I'd keep BVP as an insurance policy against Jake getting hurt and being gone for the season.

    There is no way I want culter as my only option and not having someone around that knows the playbook.
    Well, listening to a certain coach speak yesterday Cutler already has a pretty good grasp of the playbook. He has had it since April and he is a graduate of Vanderbilt and did not major in basket weaving.

    I hope BVP gets the boot. His roster spot would be better filled elsewhere. Horrendous accuracy, p!ss poor decision making, and lack of focus=get the f*** out of Denver.

    He might make it, but I won't be too disappointed if he doesn't. He never has impressed much except for that trick play that he pulled last year...that was awesome!

    no the pass right right in between the to defenders perfectly. It look like BVP thought kirkus was going to run a 5 and hook route. It looked like kirkus was going to run a 7 out/in route. But if BVP threw it anywhere else it would have been knocked away or intercepted

    I guess my question is, if he converts the score, do we still throw him under the bus? Looking at the stats, yes, but I didn't see the game. The thing of it is, there is no one on this planet that knows what either of these guys will do in a regular season football game. We can speculate, and might be right, but we just don't know.
