  • Nice. Top notch backup.

    Now everyone can shut up about not having a backup.

  • No opinion until the terms of the deal come out. Prefer him to McCoy (unavailable), Leinert and Young. Just glad the city of Seattle can stop obsessing over the back-up QB now.

  • We had no QB's on the roster other than Wilson. We need a couple of arms for the camp. This is a good pick up. I think Pete is going to make him compete for the backup job. It won't be just handed to him. We should be drafting a QB in the later rounds and hopefully sign Josh Portis as well.

  • So he signed a three year deal in buffalo so must have been cut since that wa two years ago. So they keep TJack instead....

    Hoping RW doesn't get injured would much rather have had Vince Young

  • Cheap, experienced, and he plays the pistol better than some starters play their schemes. What's not to like?

    You don't get the signing of a mobile, veteran QB with starting experience in the pistol offense? OK.

  • My understanding is he's notable for his ability to run the pistol offense. Signing makes perfect sense.

    Is there an echo in here? :)

    Spoke to someone close to Thigpen. Nothing done yet with Hawks contrary to @PFCentral report. I'll pass along anything if that changes

  • The best part of signing Thigpen is it improves Portis' chances of becoming the backup.

    These guys are competing for a backup job, with some luck they'll play late in games they are winning or they will develop real skills as a clipboard holder.

    Underwhelming!
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

  • It seems to me that VY is a more viable choice than Thigpen, but either one can win games in the NFL.

  • I'd prefer Vince Young and Josh Portis to be the #2 and #3, but Thigpen would be adequate. Just as long as it's not Leinart.

  • I would have to think that PCJS are going to draft a QB and let them compete for the backup job with Thigpen and Portis. I think it is to early to worry about who the backup is he may not be on he roster yet.

  • PFCENTRAL IS NOT A LEGIT SOURCE

    It's the second coming of Incarcerated Fraud. Take a look at the back catalogue. They do exactly the same thing as ICB. They pre-empt things. A deal that is speculated by the media is then a 'done deal' on PFC or ICB, they write a few lines of copy and leave it there. They hedge their bets on it coming true. If it does, then they force the link down your throat to prove how they 'got it right'. If it doesn't, then they delete the post.

    When Glazer, Mort, Schefter, La Canfora etc report this, we should talk about it. The title of this thread should include the word 'speculation'.

    Incarcerated Bob is just some guy who became a 'personality' by ringing up the New York phone-ins every day. He has a thirst for attention. Whoever started PFC clearly felt like they fancied a crack at it too. Don't get duped by these phoney websites.

    I'm guessing this is just the start of a QB pile for TC. Hopefully we end up with a decent backup once the competition has weeded most of them out.

    and not still trying to figure out who the heck the starter is going to be to lead the Hawks!
