Already buying the black alternate jersey. I might get to wear it more than the Shawn Andrews jersey that I'm still mad about.

You can't have Hurts out there looking over his shoulder for the Studfeld every time he screws up.

I hope you keep that in front of the Stacey Andrews jersey so you don't have to look at it.

I'll take Sudfeld over Wentz right now, and it's not even close.

Im not sure why anyone is bitching about this signing.  Hes a perfect backup.  Hes going to tutor Hurts and no one will be clamoring for him to be the starter when Hurts goes through the inevitable growing pains as a starter.

I'm pleased by this because he's clearly no challenge to Hurts, so the kid knows this is his shot.  Let's see what he can do.

Flacco isn't worse than Foles, might be better.  If he has some time to read--admittedly a big if, but that's true of any team--then he's fine, could even approach decent.  His arm is still there. And he's not Foles, whose presence on the roster would create a goddamn circus in Philly.

theres no point in bitching about it or being happy about it...its a meaningless move

1. you are not going to find a better more mature leader in a young qb than hurtz so flacco isnt needed there

2. you arent going to find two qb's who are more different in terms of their playing style...so thats where the coaching staff will come into play not flacco

3. who cares how good flacco is this is a 3-5 win team whether he plays or not....its not like they need a good back up to keep the team afloat if their starter goes down

its a small potatoes thing but they could save 2ish mil, roll the money to over to 2022 and sign an equally worthless backup

In general, I don't see what the big deal is about bringing in someone to compete for the starting job. That's what a QB competition is -- a chance to make your case to start by outperforming the team's other options. That's what these guys are used to going back to their college days. Just makes no sense to do it this particular season since they are very likely going to be terrible and have many priorities beyond QB to address before becoming competitive, so an extended look at what they have in Hurts isn't going to cost them a playoff spot or something.
