  • For a smartass comment we now need to sign Tebow

    Then we could have an Elbow and a Pigpen on the same team.

    So the answer is no. He hasn't signed. It is a rumor. Thread should say rumor on title.

    I totally agree with you. Pete should definetly bring in one of the above average backup quarterbacks that are still available.

    Oh, wait.........

    I mean, that's probably true, but what do we expect from a backup quarterback? Seneca Wallace was probably average at best, and hell Flynn is probably going to be average at best. Thigpen is cheap and he's a guy where if Wilson has to miss 4 games I think he could probably give you a good shot at winning at least 2 of them. If Wilson misses more than that our season is going to be in serious trouble no matter who we can reasonably expect to be our backup QB.

  • most 2nd string QB's are average at best. as long as they aren't hurting the team.

    We would be a good team with an average QB.

    We just happen to have an excellent QB, hence in the superbowl discussion.

  • Shh, don't tell anybody, but I have it on a good inside source that Joe Montana hates Harbaugh so much he's going to make a comeback with the Seahawks.

    they've agreed to terms, er, will sign, I mean, he was spotted at the airport. Yeah, that's the ticket!

  • My source at the airport has said that Urlacher has not come back through and gotten on a plane. That means that he is still in heated discussions on a new deal at the VMAC. Hopefully we hear the same for Thigpen, Portis, Young, and Montana soon.

  • I have it on good authority that Doug Flutie is looking to buy a home near Seattle. Not only may he be the best fit at backup for this team, due to an uncanny resemblance to Wilson, the entire complex would also be able to enjoy Flutie Flakes for breakfast each day.

  • You guys have more info on Thigpen than me, all I've seen is his name as backup for various teams, but he must be serviceable or Pete and John wouldn't consider him?
    I'm not that bothered about it at all, If he can't absorb any of Russ's talent and coaching by playing with him, he'll move on; if he does, adequate back up?
    I just think if he's willing to take in and learn from Russ who is a motivator with talent, and Thigpen has a shred of ability, he'll be fine
    If i could get this bloody signature thing to work it would be a very pretty picture

    Not to derail this thread ... but


    He's almost Tebow like, he gets wins and gives 100% effort with his body, he's not a cerebral quarterback but he has athletic skills. It's for that reason that Vince Young makes way more since to me.


    note: he has a much better passing motion than tebow, and he's not as magic.

    Sorry, should have been a bit more clearer, whichever "vet" they bring in, for me, i'm not bothered; if they can absorb some of Russ's talent and improve; obviously some have more talent than others; at the end of the day, if they can't cut it, or prove they're capable of being a back up, they'll be gone soon enough, and i'm sure whovever it is brought in, they'll have been evaluated long and hard to see if they can offer something to the team, so on that basis, i'm not that worried at all who is being brought in as a back up; There's always the draft aswell, and Portis?
