    Why are two big-name quarterbacks on the sideline with training camp only a month away?

    Backup quarterbacks only see a handful of snaps at each practice, so the majority of the preparation for each game is handled through watching film and taking copious notes during meetings.
    Thats all that needs to be said Packer fans.

    Daunte deserves to be without a job. He should of stayed in Minnesota. Not that I wanted him but he still might have been the starter.

    What that tells me is that for 3 years, Rodgers has seen few snaps in practice, besides the few brief appearances in a few games.

    Ergo, T-Jack is more prepared than Rodgers.

    when you cant play qb for the falcons, you cant play it for anyone. that is the reality for leftwich.

    Daunte needs to realize that he's no longer a three time pro bowler coming off a 39 touchdown, 4700 yard season; he can no longer demand a shot at a starting position.
    He's now a turnover prone injury risk; in the last three years he's thrown 13 touchdowns while turning the ball over 32 times.
    Time to push the pride aside and grovel if need be, take what he can find with a one year contract and hope for a chance to get on the field.
    Unless you're backing up Peyton Manning or Tom Brady there's a good chance you'll see the field.
    How many quarterbacks started at least one game last year, forty, fifty?

    Obviously the Vikings do.

    Not only did they draft Culpepper knowing it, they went out this offseason & signed John David Booty who has even smaller hands than Culpepper.

    Booty has the potential to fumble the ball even more so than Culpepper.
