    That's what it sounds like to me.

    Last year the Packers lost Aaron Rodgers for 7 games. They went with 3 different backups, Tolzien, Flynn and Seneca Wallace. That team won 2 lost 5 and tied 1 game in that span. Without Joe I'm not even sure we would do that well. This team needs a real QB and Freeman is at least that. He's also the same physical build as Joe and they wouldn't have to adjust the offense at all to accommodate him. Sounds like a low risk move to me.

    Thats without context. Case also came in and threw 8 Tds and only 1 INT in his first 4 games. He apparently was lighting it up in practice as well which is why they went that direction. He cooled off by the end of the year but I think he showed an ability to be a short time starter if only looking at the 4 game stretch. He did finish with a better QB rating than Flacco last year, on a team that also struggled mightily.

    I dont take that as a knock on Yates as much as a good thing for Case that showed an ability to make plays while yates was more of a manager. Personally Yates to me fits the back up role better because of that, but i think both are capable.

    If the $ is right, sign him. BUT I agree with the above: our next QB signing is likely to be Yates or Keenum. Both are young, have some NFL experience, and are known by Kubes and his staff.

    I expect them to draft a qb and or sign a udfa. Drafting a qb is the best scenario money wise for a backup qb going forward. But I could also see them bringing in someone kubes is familiar with like Yates or Keenum if possible.

    Good move for them. They sound ready to move on from Eli sooner than later so hes a cheap flyer and still young enough to be a longterm solution.

    I like the move for the Giants. I would have liked it better for the Ravens.

    That may make him more attractive as in-game replacement. The offense changes a lot with Taylor and it would be something the other team hadn't prepared for. They would probably adjust but it might take a few series.
