I love both our young qbs, they are both very exciting. But, neither will ever ever be elite level guys, probably never regular starters, and although my heart says go with both of them and ditch Collins, the head is 100% for keeping TC.

Hopefully, somebody will clearly establish themselves as the obvious 3rd choice. CB hasn't helped with his interceptions, but he has probably gotten in against the slightly tougher Ds and CD hasn't had a big enough sample size really. ALso CB has the fact that he was a draft pick going for him. On the other hand Daniel is 4 years younger, and is deceptively athletic. Too bad he is so short.

You dont get rid of the guy who knows the offensive system inside out and has plenty of experience of the NFL

If JC goes down then its absolutely Collins who starts

I'm watching preseason game 4

CD comes in at end of 1st quarter. How to interpret:
Give the guy a chance to show his stuff to other teams before cutting?
Zorn showing he's the number 3 and giving him much needed experience?

How about "evaluating his potential for a place on the practice squad"?

I can't see a QB on the practice squad. Coaches consider the PS twofold - players with potential and players to help in practice, tends to be backs and lineman who get kept around on it.

Looks like Colt is going to IR with a tear in his hammy and a hip problem, that should see Daniel make the final roster as the #3.

Hmm, that's all very convenient for us

Edit: ... or not! Word on the street is that Daniels will NOT be in the final 53 and we'll go with 2 QB's only.

Honestly if this happens, I think we'd be fine using ARE back there if we got both QB's knocked down. However if true, it does show that they consider Daniels no competition to Brennan being the future.

Apparently so. That means either 2 QBs for the season or a pickup from today's cuts. Interesting strategy to say the least.

I read about Colt and immediatley thought 'Convenient - now they get to keep both young QB's, work on Colt in the background and resume the battle next year' but if they do go with two, think its more likley we'd go with 4 RB's?

I'm tempted to say "Be bold!" and bold could be one of two choices:

1. Ditch collins
2. Keep 4, yes 4 QBs...bold indeed.

The reality choices:
1. Daniel is still a nobody that can could safely be put on the practice squad without being taken by another team.

2. Colt or Daniel develops a mysterious injury so they go on IR for the whole season (my vote for most likely)

Once again I have nothing to declare except my own genius. I have become a legend in my own mind.
