    And he WILL be...just as soon as the Iggles cut Kelly Holcomb so that we can pick him up!

    I hope you are right and all of the speculation is true about Holcomb.
    Maybe that's been the master plan all along
    ???.


    Personally, I think Chilly should start Bollinger Friday against the Jets.
    The most important game of the preseason (according to most) is Game 3.
    Nearly no QB goes through a season playing all 16 games, so, if Bollinger is not cut, he will most assuredly be playing.

    Yes, he looked like crap against the Rams.
    Let's see how he performs with the first team offense for a couple or three series, then put TJack in for the rest of the first half with the first team.
    Childress absolutely needs to see if Bollinger can play or not...you could flip flop the scenario I've outlined and be able to evaluate similarly.
    Still a bit confused on the whole Holcomb thing.

    Are we trying to say we want him because he has been a great career backup and he is a better backup than Bollinger or.......

    Are we saying we want him to come in and start because he has been a great career backup and will be better than TJ?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...?playerId=1162

    TD's - 37, INT's 37.
    He is currently 4th on the depth chart behind McNabb (understand that) Feeley (don't understand that), Kolb (Understand that).
    Feeley sucks, Kolb had a high draft pick used on him.
    Is this guy worse than Feeley?

    Again, just a bit confused. Hope it is the first option and not the second.
    Educate me people, what am I missing if it is the second option we are all clamoring for.

    :
    Holcomb has started many games in the past, for both Clevesuck and Buffaho, with some good results...and most importantly, he IS a better option than Bollinger, Henson and Thigpen.
    First option then.
    I concur.
    ;D

    Why have him start, HE SUCKS!! Why have him on the team, HE SUCKS!! I say give Tjack most of the time so he can progress and be ready for the regular season when he will be the starter.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Re: Bollinger to Start vs. Jets???

    Let him start.. supposing T-Jack gets injured in the first series of the regular season - do you really then want to have had your #2 QB standing around all preseason with no game-time practice?
    course not. That's one reason for preseason, give players who may not be regular contributors a chance to blow the cobwebs out and at least be in a position to step up if needed.
    If we went 0-4 in preseason then I wouldn't worry if it meant that we got the entire team ready for the regular season.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Relax!

    Teams don't always put their starters in, in the first quarter. They mix it up. They'll also be evaluating the new & young talent & in order to get a good assesment, they'll be putting some of them in against starters to see how they fare.

    MANKATO, Minn. - Quarterback Brooks Bollinger is slated to get some snaps with the Vikings' first-team offense Friday night, and he's looking forward to the opportunity....

    I guess memory banks only go back a little ways so these sorts of things have to be re-hashed every year.

    Is this the thread where someone was calling for Aaron Brooks?
    WTF?
    I've seen that dude play a lot and the one of the best things the Saints ever did was to get rid of that piece of trash.
    I'm so thankful that the team isn't run by armchair coaches.....talk about empty stadiums.

    Lot of irrational posts in this thread.
    Are we talking about practice ?Isn't pre season practice?
    I don't care who starts. I just don't want to see TJ play with the second team offense at a crucial time in the development of his confidence.He has a good start. Let's keep him with the first team to allow him the best opportunity to build confidence.
    There is little question who our starter is going to be. The competition is in name only unless TJ folds.
    I would start TJ
    for one
    or two series, then give Bollinger some time with the first team.

    QUOTE
    Brad Childress said his plan for Friday night’s second preseason game against the Jets is to play his starters for the opening half. It does sound as if quarterback Brooks Bollinger might get some second quarter snaps with the first team. Bollinger worked with the second unit in Friday night’s opener.




    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"
