Glad to see Landry Jones gone. Nice guy and a veteran, but I'd much rather take my chances with Dobbs (and Rudolph), despite the inexperience.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Steelers trade dobbs and pick Landry back up. Not that I want this to happen. But Dobbs might have been too valuable to let go into the market? Not sure.

I can see that as opposed to keeping two very young QBs... may as well get something for Dobbs if we're not going to keep him. But I hope we keep and develop these young guys. Five years later, Landry Jones is still not a solid backup. Buh-bye.

Truth be told, Jones put up very Batch type numbers, and we all LOVE Charlie...right?

That said, I like the two youngin’s upside and both should be good to go when Ben decides to hang them up.

Telling point - in a league desperate for QB's, our #1 backup from last years has been picked up by....

Bueller?....Bueller?....Bueller?....

Numbers lie at QB. Too many intangibles that can't be measured. Batch was VASTLY superior to Jones IMO except... Batch couldn't stay healthy.

The youngin's do deserve a shot, but mostly because Landry doesn't deserve "another" shot.

Stat are stats, and as you know, I am Not a stat guy. Other than W-LSU,  pretty much they are interchangeable.  To your point however, and again excuse me for playing the BA card, the over all quality of the offense, from RBs to WRs to OL, as well as the scheme that doesn’t subject QBs to excessive abuse,  greatly improved after BA left town. Charlie had to suffer through it.
