    Question Is Devlin still on the team??

    I have heard a lot of people talking about getting Manning and drafting another QB. Is Devlin good enough to be the 3'rd QB. Everyone knew he was on the PS, but you never really heard anything else about him, besides the fact that he scored higher than anyone else in the Gruden QB science project. Did we ever get an honest assesment of him?

    Devlin has no arm strength and he knows it so he's scared to make throws

    Yep you are right on target......he's got a weak arm, so he has very little upside at all.

    Sounds like what someone would have said about 7th rounder Flynn also, before the feeding frenzy, eh?






    "Yep. Blow it up. This might the worst team I've ever seen constructed in my life.
    And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.
    But do it right. Fire everyone in the building. No survivors. , JiF Jetnation

    Even Brady, when he was coming out, the word on him was he was very smart, tall, adequate arm strength, but nothing special, and could manage any offense. With some work, could be a very good backup.....how did that workout for all the teams that passed on him.

    How do you know this? Besides arm strength is not everything. There are many attributes more important than arm strength: accuracy, timing, confidence/poise, leadership, winning ability, competitiveness (especially under pressure), mental skill, ability to make good decisions in game situations, etc. Every quarterback in the NFL has decent enough arm strength or they would not even have gotten that far. I hear Chad Henne has great arm strength--if that's what you are looking for. They said that Pennington had "noodle arm," but look what he did for us.

    How is arm strength more important than accuracy? What good is it to have strength without accuracy? That playoff game was only one game, what about the rest of the season? You can't win and play perfect in every game. Pennington brought this franchise back from the DEAD in one year.

    i said ,having arm strength will better your accuracy and timing.

    pennington was playing when we were dead right? then came the wildcat. yeah we beat 1 team w/ a winning record and a bunch of nailbiters against the pathetic teams like the niners,broncos,raiders ,seahawks, rams, chiefs and bills twice. and then played a real team and penny blew it, like he did the next year with an 0-3 start.
