With all the needs we had, I guess we didn't have the luxury to have depth at QB (especially with the Kolb bust), but wow this NFL ranking is scary.

Tuel is 2nd to last with the skinny reading:

"Tuel's two rookie-year appearances were nightmarish. His arm isn't NFL-caliber ... "

old news.  I'd also like to mention that our backup QB is not Jeff Tuel, it is Thad Lewis.  someone should send NFL.com an updated depth chart

Um yeah. That pretty much sums it up. Tuel has a noodle for an arm. Reminds me of Pennington AFTER the surgery.

At best I'd move him up one spot to #30, putting him ahead of jimmy Clausen.

if our 3rd string QB is the 31st ranked backup, then we do have depth.

Hoyer is ranked 10.  Who is their starter?


BTW Tuel will prove this wrong if necessary.

I think the author is correct putting tuel ahead of lewis; in spite of his shortcomings he has outplayed lewis this preseason. I bet bills would put him in first if EJ goes down
