    Now, I rarely agree with DVontel, but you're an idiot, if you can't at least understand the analogy. I will say, though, a better comparison would be to use Matt Flynn, instead of Glennon. Flynn had one really good start, got paid and flamed out (couldn't even beat out a rookie). This could very well be Garrapolo.

    The most popular player, when you have a crappy team, seems to always be someone else's backup QB. Personally, I'd much rather roll the dice with a high drafted rookie, than pay a premium for a backup on another team.

    The % of success that a rookie is going to have long-term is low, but at least rookie contracts are more reasonable...

    The list of backup failures is quite long, in fact I have a hard time finding any/many successes, yet those contracts are usually high $$ and can set a team back just as much, if not more, than a rookie failure.

    The Cardinals will probably throw a boat load of money at Brees. It's what they do.

    I wouldn't mind that at all. Brees is dang good. No signs of any drop-off on his play.

    What about Cousins? He turned down 17 million per, so maybe too expensive?

    Mitch, he's going to be 39 going into the 2018 season. How much longer do you think he is going to last?

    I think the Cardinals could get three very good years from Brees. Of course, I'd like to see him paired with a different head coach and offensive coordinator...ones who value pass protection.

    Rivers hates LA. He’s signed through 2019 at less than Palmer in 2018.

    Well there is the third QB I said they needed to find somewhere. Guess since he was close by it was convenient.

    Not the most exciting signing but as you say, it is convenient.

    He would be killed behind this offensive line, but he has proven more than Garrapolo so far.

    I don't want another aging veteran though, Brees notwithstanding.

    This. And, they need to draft a possible QBOF to pair with him Mayfield maybe?
