    LOL, and maybe checks the field for gum wrappers and the like after practice.

    Was Devlin ever taken off the practice squad?

    It's interesting that Devlin was a top 10 QB in the 2011 draft, per mike mayock.

    and yes, devlin has been on the active roster.

    I have seen enough of Matt Moore to feel that he is pretty expendable. I think we should move Devlin to the #2 spot. I would like to draft South Carolina's Connor Shaw somewhere between round 4-6. I believe he had the fast 40 of QB's at the combine and he can throw the long ball.

    So what has Devlin shown to say he isn't expendable?

    You people are going on nothing but blind faith.

    Devlin is better than Aaron Corp. that is all. Next up in this ever so important QB #3 battle is Jordan Rogers. Hopefully they bring in a QB with real potential because on the roster as constructed we have 1 drafted QB on the team.

    Id genuinely love to hear from one of the people who want him as our backup qb.... just why? Pity?
    I'll be with you in a bit.

    Okay.

    First and foremost, all those of you who are "experts" about Pat Devlin, and enjoy mocking him as though you're QB gurus, I'd like you to watch this:



    The moral: You don't know. You don't.

    As someone who has watched the guy play...repeatedly..at Delaware, the kid can flat-out play. He does NOT have a huge arm. He's not particularly fast, and is not a nimble runner. Now, that being said, he's very accurate, intelligent, has good mechanics, goes through his reads very quickly, has great pocket awareness, and throws a really nice ball.

    In other words, he's a perfect West Coast Offense QB. Why hasn't Devlin taken the backup spot? He simply hasn't had the reps needed to adjust to the speed of the NFL. As such, he's not a "premier" backup, because he hasn't had the experience.

    Now, make no mistake, I'm not suggesting he supplant Tannehill. Tannehill's ceiling is off the chart, and in a year or two, we'll know that he's either the guy or he's not. Of course, Moore isn't Tannehill either. Which is why I don't understand what the Fins are doing. In my opinion, the Fins have TWO QB who are perfectly capable backup QB.

    Look at it this way: If Tannehill goes down, I don't think Moore will take this team any farther than Devlin will. If the Fins were a Super Bowl contender right now, I could see the justification for a $5mm backup. But they're not.

    If Tannehill goes down, then the season is in tremendous trouble. I'd rather have a wild card in Devlin than a QB who has proven that he's not the man as a backup. And I'd certainly rather spend that $5mm somewhere else.

    He affects Moore? LOLZ

    This is just another veiled "Cut Moore to use the money" thread. Enough with this topic already yeesh.
