Re: Neck Pony Nation!!!
One quarterback currently playing in the NFL Europe League, and worth keeping an eye on, is Todd Husak of the Berlin Thunder. The former Stanford star has completed 171 of 291 passes for 2,008 yards, with 12 touchdown passes, 10 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 79.2. He leads the springtime league in attempts, completions, yards and also touchdown passes and has seemed to make solid strides overseas. Husak is interesting, in addition, because of his situation with the Denver Broncos, the team which allocated him to the NFL Europe League. Because of Brian Griese's off-field woes, the Broncos might be forced to keep veteran Steve Beuerlein, bad elbow and all, around as an insurance policy. And the coaches seem to like another former NFL Europe product, third-year pro Jarious Jackson, which could make it difficult for Husak to make the roster. If he is cut, teams would be wise to take a look at Husak. He has good size, a decent arm, plenty of smarts. There are some people who feel that then-coach Marty Schottenheimer gave up way too early on Husak last year, when he released him. This isn't to suggest Husak will ever be a star in the NFL, but that he could be a solid career backup.
