Default The Birds should go with two QBs

Why should we keep Tebow or Barkley? They are both horrible and beyond the "development " stage. If we cut them neither one would be picked up anyway so they could be resigned if we got desperate . Also, CJ Kinne is around too if need be. Why not keep an extra player that might actually help the team? The Pats only have carried two for the last couple of years. I just read where Chip never carried a third QB once all last year so why waste a roster spot on them?

Then let's hope that he plays even worse than usual tomorrow night.

Totally agree. If we're down to QB#3, we are totally hosed anyway. Also, I would think that our best chance at converting 2 point conversions is with BRADFORD, not tebow.

Cut them both .. they'll both be available anyway.

I tend to agree but I think Barkley isn't as bad as most of you think he is.

That 'Tebow up the middle for two points play' is golden. No one will stop that

Agree. He may even get picked up if we drop him (which I am inclined to do, because if we get to QB #3 we are hosed).

Yeah, I don't think Barkley is horrible. He's looked OK. The biggest issue in real games was the interceptions, but that was mostly rookie year and being put into games where the Eagles were well behind.

I don't think he's more than a backup, but he could be a solid NFL backup. His stats weren't great this last game but his first two passes were beautiful and were horrifically dropped by Pratt and Tomlinson. His stats go from 5 for 9 to 7 for 9 if those two are caught, and probably gets more first downs etc. as well.

He seems to be clearly behind Sanchez though, and if a guy is not ready to be a #2 QB in his third year in the system.... I can see looking for someone else to groom. He probably needs a shot elsewhere.

I just do not want Tebow to be that QB. But I may not get my wish. So if that is the case, I pray that Tebow is the inactive #3 all season long.

Not sure why anybody seems think that Chip would show his hand in fake phoney games in regards to the goal line plays he might have in mind for Tebow. Since none of us sees the weeks of practice, we are really at Chip's mercy when it comes to making judgments. Not like the old days when you could go to camp and see the comparisons.

Like the play he ran to weeks ago where his receiver was open by five yards and his pass was so bad it almost missed the ground? Chip can design the best play in football history but it's worthless if Tim can't execute it. And we have to take Bradford out of the game for that??? It makes zero sense to me.
