BLOG: Back-Up Quarterbacks?
Not a whole heck of a lot out there. It’s a who’s who of nobody’s. The most recognizable name is Jake Delhomme, but if you have heard me talking about him, you would know that I think he stinks. You have a ton of other journeyman back ups. How about Chris Simms, Jim Sorgi, or Brodie Croyle? How about some of the veterans that have been hanging around for awhile? For example Patrick Ramsey, Todd Bouman, maybe even Jeff Garcia. The Jeff Garcia thing is kind of interesting, but does he have anything left?
Would you be O.K. going into the season with Tyrod Taylor? It’s a tough decision with this position, you hope it doesn’t even matter and that Flacco stays healthy but you never know. I don’t think you can lure Marc Bulger out of retirement or even Chad Pennington, but I think those guys are set with life after football. Also I don’t think the Ravens have the money to bring those guys back if they wanted to.
