Matt Moore showed nothing either but he was given the #2 position automatically...Sparano even said that he wasn't very good in practice (but somehow they let him play in games). Even Sports Science saw thought highly enough to bring him in among the top QBs (and he turned out to be the most accurate passer in their tests). Plus he is a proven winner (an intangible that can only be seen in games), which Moore obviously is not.
    Wow I feel dumber just reading your post. Please give me my 20 seconds back.

    Unfortunately, there were some here who were actually advocating bringing in both Brady Quinn and Kyle Orton.

    Upset because your boy CP10 is back working with the Jets? You CP10 fanboys, fell in love with a never has been who is/was a Jet. Now only if Penny could take his fanboys with him.

    Now we will excuse you to go back to ganggreen.com and love you some CP10.

You talk like our great organization is all-knowing and knew what they were doing...and look at what they did, most of them are fired by now except for your uncle Ireland. If your guy Moore is that great, we shouldn't have had our worst season in 3 years? At this point it is a matter of opinion because in the NFL we have seen Moore for 5 years and have not seen the rookie Devlin yet. Hopefully we shall see...

    So all 32 teams didn't get it right like Sports Science? You make it too easy.

    Go back to your jests boards where you can be loved and hugged.

    Ya, no room for him! He may struggle to pass for 200 yards, have almost as many fumbles as TDs, fumble 3 games away, and completely disappear at the end of games. Oh wait, that is our current starter.

    Not a great analogy - Troy Aikman had to transfer in college because he couldn't unseat Jamelle Holieway at Oklahoma. (Yeah, it's a little different situation...Aikman lost his job originally because of an injury, but it doesn't make Devlin a bad QB because he transferred.)

    I cannot understand why Devlin is so polarizing. Kid could flat out PLAY at Delaware, but he's obviously also not NFL ready...yet. He's a nice developmental player...with the potential for more. What's the harm in that?

Matt Moore automatically got to play the entire pre-season just because we signed him instead of Orton. Devlin finally gets in the game in the last pre season game, and he drives down to the 1 yard line going 4 for 4. Moore was never better than Devlin, not even in college. No one was happy when we signed Moore instead of Orton--remember. Many fans only wanted Moore starting instead of Henne because they were tired of Henne getting us nowhere, even though Matt Moore was probably no better (winning 3 of the last 6 games).
    To the contrary.. it was Moore who got deprived of a fair open competition with Henne in TC; had there been one we may have been competing for that backdoor entry to the playoffs in game 16 instead of being the jest spoiler.

    And as far as wanting Orton goes, more than half of us agreed with the 90% or more of the polled Broncos fans who wanted no part of the guy they called "Three and Out Orton" with a 61 career 3rd down QBR. Hell, excavating Jeff Garcia would have been preferable to giving up any draft picks and taking a cap hit for Orton. As it were, there were suggestive threads about Moore at that time pointing out his concussion-influenced bad 2010 may have had an effect turning around his impressive 09, so he was no dark horse or surprise and relative the acquision and cap costs compared to Orton, he was a buy. Oh and Moore happened to win 6 out of his final 9 with 15TDs and 5Ints with the 12th best QBR and one of top long ball efficiency ratings in the league.

    Now, as much as anyone, I was for giving Devlin a shot, but throwing Moore of all people under the bus in comparison to Henne, let alone Orton, is purple koolade, or haterade-worthy.

    The guy was a good pick up as an undrafted FA. His college stats are solid and he has good size. He led all NCAA qb's in completion percentage his senior year and ranked 5th in QB rating. People around here act like he is hot garbage which is ridiculous. Given that Sparano was the decision maker how can anyone be surprised the kid didn't get any opportunities? The kid came out of a spread offense and needs time to develop. The talent is there but he needs a better coaching than A Sparano led staff to develop it.

    Alright I gotta ask. What is your problem with Chad Pennington? Seems like you bash the guy any chance you get.

    I think Devlin is just a practice squad guy. If he was any good then Miami wouldn't have signed JP Losman
