I remember watching this video a year or so ago when it was a new episode of Sports Science. Devlin headlines this one, and he looks pretty impressive. I'm sure most of you would enjoy this bit:
Pretty easy, you plan for his replacement.
"It happens all the time," Taylor said. "It's not an exact science and personnel guys aren't the end-all, be-all. " Jason Taylor,2011
I think Devlin is going to develop into a very solid backup. I'm comfortable with him as the backup and a 3rd QB late in the draft.
ill be disappointed if moore leaves, but i would be happy for him if he got an opportunity to start. I wish him well where ever he ends up, i know some won't agree... but i appreciate the spark he gave our team and for dragging us back to respectability. I would like to think devlin would be ready if need be, obviously not for the long term but how bad can he be (insert ray lucas joke here) in a spot start.
So on this thread, what happens if we lose Moore? Um, what happens if Flynn leaves the Packers and signs with the Seahawks, if Kolb leaves the Eagles and joins the Cardinals, if Cassel leaves New England and joins the Chiefs?
Pretty sure none of those teams are saying DAMN I wish I had that backup quarterback we used to have on our team. He doesn't sweat all over these clipboards like these do.
Who the hell cares, they're backup quarterbacks for a reason. Sign Devlin, draft a 6th-7th round quarterback, or get an undrafted one and we good.
