    Seriously? What credentials does Sloter have? He's never appeared in a regular season NFL game and currently doesn't have a team, and since it's a week before camps are supposed to open (fingers crossed) which isn't a good sign for a QB that wants to continue his NFL career. Meanwhile Driskel has appeared in and started NFL games. Oh and both were on the Lions last year and they used Driskel over Sloter, so wouldn't that indicate that Driskel's credentials are better than Sloter's?

    Now that's not to say Driskel is a good or even average backup QB, but if Denver's going to upgrade that position they should look to do better than a QB who appears to be out of the league without ever taking a snap in a regular season game.

    Did you notice I put "credentials" in quotes? Sloter has none. Driskel is 1-7 as a starter including 0-3 last year You left that part out. Just because someone did something doesn't mean they did it well enough to get any "credit". I have a feeling Sloter could have gone 0-3 too.

    Plus it's slow around here and I knew the word "sloter" would bring some activity.

    Depends on what you mean by "credentials". Kyle Sloter has zero starts, zero appearances and no stats in NFL regular season games. FWIW Jef Driskell has eight starts (1-7) Sloter is currently a free agent, so he's available We shall see how it goes.

    Do you really believe that Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have the mobility and arm talent of ex. Aaron Rodgers, or that they are even in the same league as Elway/Marino was or Cutler for that matter?

    Neither Tom Brady, Peyton Manning nor Drew Brees were physically more than mediocre QBs in their prime, and PM when he played for us was far from the throwing ability he had before.

    What made them all elite is between the ears!
