    Ya,ya... I think the Bidwills probably shell out somewhere north of 10m a year for the combined expertise that led to the signing of Gabbert. Our combined opinion worth exactly 0 on the open market. There's your answer.

    No he isn't. Those guys are practicing on a different field. Except for Pipkin who is gone,

    What is the question? Mine is why don't you understand how butt Blaine Gabbert is?

    The owners' names are "Bidwill." Gabbert's veteran minimum deal tells you EXACTLY what the Cards think of him.

    I don't think the money was a big consideration for Gabbert at this point. I don't know the details of his contract, or what other opportunities he had, but I heard that Seattle was interested, for one. Gabs wants to be a starter in the league, and has no doubt that he is one of the top 32 QBs on the planet. Arizona offers the best opportunity for that without going to a dysfunctional situation and starting a few games until some rookie is ready, or until the team decides to tank and use a high draft pick on a college QB. He's made close to $20m in the NFL and he's just 27. His girlfriend/wife is an investment banker and they're not high livers, so I imagine he could live quite comfortably with plenty of money left over to pass on to his heirs some day. It's about pride and dignity.

    Ok. I'm now convinced that Robert is either the man himself or a close relation. Way too many personal details known.

    Wel Stanton has been in the same system for many years - gabbart never in the same system for 7 years. System Continuity and consistency helps Stanton keep a grip as a back up - can he win as starter ?

    BG is a top number 3, he is a middle of the road number 2, and a bottom tier starter. If he is starting games we're toast. Nuff said.

    With the Cards only having two qb's on the roster last year it's Gabbert vs Stanton.

    I think if Gabbert takes the #3 job, we keep 3 this year.

    :yeahthat:

    Tebow was never a QB. He was an athlete trying to play QB.

    No support either, Zilch.

    He may not be anything more then a b/u , they need to see dramatic improvements over the course of the next year. If he could be as good as say McCown at least, he's serviceable.

    He could surprise. Like I said he's had no real team to lead up to now. Let's play some football first and see first hand if there's serious potential. They got nothing to loose, possibly much to gain. They're not committed to the guy and he's here on the cheap prove something program.;)

    I'd admit it's hard to do, but not impossible. Perhaps the classic example is Steve Young. Here's what SI writer Rick Reilly had to say when analyzing how the Niners built a dynasty, "They traded for Tampa Bay quarterback Steve Young, hoping that a thorough brainwashing would make him unlearn everything he picked up from the Bucs." You can look at his career stats to see how he gradually changed his game and threw deeper consistently. Jim Plunkett would also fit this description.

    Room for him and Stanton on the roster.
