Default Can Brandstater be the No. 2 QB now?

I'm in no way advocating Brandstater, a rookie, to play.

But isn't it time now for him to be at least the team's No. 2 qb behind Orton.

Brandstater -- if he had to play in case if Orton got injured again -- can't play any worse than Simms has.

Simms has proven he's still rusty after the 3-year layoff.

The problem we have is not who plays QB. The problem that we have is the season long failure to achieve any sort of rhythm and consistency. That can be laid (and should be laid) squarely at the feet of the offensive coordinator.

I think there is a 50/50 chance he gets cut next week. Worse than I would have ever imagined. Like a 1st year player.

If we keep on losing I can see Tommy starting the last 2-3 games. We have to see how he will perform.

This would be the best choice McD has made in weeks. Too bad it won't happen.

I saw a very interesting article at some point last week where the writer essentially said that while it is understood that Simms came in without any notification, it's not excusable because that's his only role there. We've now seen that a week's notification didn't help either. The only reason I can see to keep him on the team is because the coaching staff should've been able to tell long before week 11 if they had an inaccurate, gunshy wuss as their backup QB. They might try to save face but he was as bad as anyone could've imagined.

I was almost wishing Cutler was back.

Well, well, look who's back.

season-long failure? So when we were 6-0, beating the Chargers and Pats and Cowboys, we were failing to have any sort of rhythm?

interesting take. ****ing retarded, but interesting.

I would actually do this. We need a bit of mobility out of the QB position and Garcia can still toss the rock.

Simms can pack his stuff.

It's bad when Simms is taken out early in the game and replaced by a quarterback who didn't have much practice last week. If we learned anything from the Kern situation, Simms will be looking for a new team...

SImms' poor play pretty much justified McDaniels naming Orton the starter at QB before training camp started. Guess it couldn't hurt making Brandstater #2.

Not really.

3/4/2009: Signed a two-year, $6 million contract. The deal included a $1.5 million signing bonus.

We'd only be looking at an extra "hit" of $750K. They're more than one million under the cap.

Simms no longer deserves a roster spot. He can't do the one thing they need him to do.

It looks like the scar tissue moved from his stomach to his arm.

Sid Bream could've easily swiped a few bags off that slowass delivery.
