Hill is looking good, but he turns 27 later this month and with his injury history and him tucking and running so much I don't know if he's worth stashing on the ps and developing him

I'm actually pleasantly surprised with our backup QB's.

Yep, 2 x QBs, almost for sure, I think.

So many other places on the team where you could usefully keep an extra guy, I don't see three QBs. QB3 is just extra weight until you lose QB1, and he still isn't worth much until QB2 goes down, then you just hope he can can do something, anything.

Kurt Warner didn't get his shot until he was 28, but I"m with you on the age thing.

Vogel. I wouldn't say he had the greatest night, but there is something about him - and its early days.

Will be watching the Packers depth chart to see if Hill vaults over Callahan

I agree but he did struggle with hangtime a bit tonight.

I dont care about the age. I want competence.
AR's gonna play till he drops - so if we're gonna ditch Hundley after this season - we want somebody back there that can get it done - NOW - in case of emergency.

Warner at least had the ability to throw the ball and didn't have the injury history like Hill. In college Hill was basically a rb playing an. It's nice to see him have a good pre-season but I'm not expecting him to be a starting qb anytime in the future

Two plays in a row Gilbert beat that guy around the edge. Just didn't quite get home the last time. Should have him set up for a bull rush now.
