    The team a QB ends up is very important. Romo would have been run out of the league if he had been forced to start right away. I think Aikman would have never been able to do the things he did if we he didn't have our oline in front of him. What if someone had taught Tim Tebow to read a defense and throw a football? Every once in a while there is a guy like John Elway who can't miss, but that is extremely rare.

    I'm not totally sure, but I'm not convinced that's a bad landing spot for a young QB. The head coach and OC are both former NFL QBs, and the QB coach is a former (albeit unsuccessful) OC who may or may not have helped develop Derek Carr.

    I guess we'll see.

    Yeah, although I think their head coach isn't really qualified for the job at all. I was speaking more to the mess of a QB depth chart they have their and the talent they put around the QB. They have a starter in Bradford who wants out and is hated by fans. They have a backup to him they signed in the offseason to a pretty big deal and then they have Wentz who they gave up a lot to get. They have a shitty offensive line, a WR core that frankly sucks and the only RB to speak of gets hurt every other carry. And they have a has been TE who is a shell of his former self. Not really a talent rich offense to surround Wentz.

    Report: Dolphins will sign Jason Jones

    Posted by Zac Jackson on May 13, 2016, 7:23 PM EDT


    The Dolphins plan to sign veteran defensive lineman Jason Jones, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Friday.

    Jones visited the Dolphins in March and again last month.

    Jones has played multiple positions across the defensive line in his eight-year career, which started when the Titans picked him in the second round in 2008. He played the last three seasons with the Lions.

    With the compensatory pick threshold for free agents having passed, players like Jones who were still on the market could find new teams quickly.

    Jones started 31 games over the last two seasons for the Lions and had 9.5 sacks during that time

    Eh, Jason Jones would have been a nice stopgap but he's pretty mediocreso I'm glad we didn't overpay for him.

    The Titans cut Zach Mettenberger. Of course, we are set at QB.

    He must have a bad attitude. The Steelers buried him on their depth chart last year.
