    Yeah if TJack is the future QB why didnt he go in the game instead of Bollinger??
    Just to clear this up, TJack was not activated for the game.

    The guy that is listed as 3rd/reserve QB can only get in the game if the two other QBs is unable to play.
    Actually, he can come in and play at any time. The only problem is, if he does, neither the 1st or 2nd string QB can come back in the game. That's why you never see the 3rd string QB as a holder on kicks. As soon as he'd come in, the first two guys are gone.

    I believe this rule is waived in the 4th quarter, however, and the 3rd stringer can come in at any time. Let me add the disclaimer that I know this was true a few years ago, but I do not know if those rules have changed.

    Thank you for clearing it up.

    I thought I had it, but your explanation is the right one. Not that it makes much of a diference, yet what I said were not entirely true

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    ok so we have one team with a winning record on our team and your calling for a third string qb...yeah tj is the future but he needs some time to learn, watching johnson will help.....johnson is our guy....the defense he faced was good, we had a couple calls not go our way and they were a better team, the vikings are fine.........
    how will it help to go out there and watch brad make horrible decisions and throw 4 intertceptions?
    the only thing hes learning is not to spaz out in big games.
    Watching Brad WILL help regardless of how he plays. Brad has a lot of knowledge that he could impart upon someone, and watching him and listening to a veteran in meetings will certainly help, regardless of how Brad plays on Sunday.

    Re: This is the Perfect time to Start T jack

    What can I say? I have a good memory when it comes to obscure NFL rules.

    It comes in handy when watching games with the Bears fans I have ended up surrounding myself with. When calls go against the Bears, and I'm ready with the exact explanation of why the refs were right, and their team isn't just getting screwed, it goes over rather nicely. I'm usually thanked well.


    That is, if 'thanked' means cussed out and told to shut up, among other things.






    It's fun.

    Ok it was a bad loss, but IMO benching Brad at this stage would be crazy, if we fall out of play-off contention ring the changes but not now. I also think one of the reasons Johnson looked bad on MNF was when we were chasing a big deficit the running game seemed to be abandoned altogether.
    The way we have been winning matches is to keep it tight, run the ball, use up the clock, keep the chains moving plus obviously special teams and Defence. Whenever we have to start throwing the ball practically every down to catch up, we are going to struggle.

    You can do much worse that 4-7 especially since 3 of which came in one game.


    Alex Smith was 1TD 11 Ints last year, Joe Namath's career TD to INT is 173 to 220, so you can do much worse, AND MAKE THE HALL OF FAME.

    He's made mistakes to try and make big plays that weren't there and the ball got picked off, but he can manage an offense as well as anyone, so I would never bench him.

    I deleted his remarks that are as usual, uninformed.
