Just another arm to have at practice. Though I'm sure some will overact as though any of these guys are starting week 1.

I'd take Beck over Leinert.  But, I'd rather have a QB who can coach and contribute vs. fill a roster spot.  Batch could do that - he's knowledgable in many system.

OK - is it my imagination or did that happen impossibly fast??

IE - I am now suspicious they were already looking for Kolb alternatives, and were talking to these guys BEFORE he was injured today.

Beck is pretty bad.   I wouldn't cry over Leinart as a backup.

It doesn't take that long to make a phone call and ask an agent if their player is interested in a tryout.

Yikes. I liked him coming out but reports are saying Wilson has looked really really bad.

Pickens was supposed to play Scatman Crother's role in the Shining ( Dick Hallorann), just to be clear.

I would rather have Glenn Beck, odds are he would be better than both
