    Our next backup QB is, I believe, somebody who is not currently on the roster. They may keep Taylor for some kind of change of pace or gadget package or whatever, but I don't see it as a #2. He's got talent but he's too short -- throwing off the back foot and floating passes into traffic. His only hope is to get fearless like Brees -- just step up and fire, damn the pass rush. Took Vick years to get to that point. If Taylor doesn't adapt to that mentality, his career will be over soon. Which pains me to say, because I really like the guy and think he can play. But it's a lot like they said about Gabbert last year -- happy feet, won't last long. He came in this year like a rock, standing tall and firing. If Taylor gets that mentality he has a prayer. if he keeps on like this, it's over.

    I'm a believer that the Ravens are one of the few teams that can survive if Flacco misses some time, so long as the guy they have backing him up is capable. Flacco is important, but this team has a bunch of talented players across the board. Matt Moore is a guy. David Garrard if he were to get cut. Trent Edwards? A guy who has won a game or two in the NFL as opposed to who they have now.

    Yeah, they're really going out of their way to sell that one.

You really have to take each guy, individually, in practice, and plug him in with the 1s and see how he looks.

    Running a team of 2s and 3s out there is mostly an exercise in pointlessness. You can't evaluate much. Sure you can see if linemen hold their blocks. You can see if RBs pick up blitzes. You can see if receivers run the right routes. That's about it. Oh, you can see if guys know how to line up right. But you can learn that from practice. This is probably about figuring out about that 9th lineman or that extra CB playing on ST's, and what not. Very little else to be learned here.
    Sorry, i was making a reactionary statement to one horrible possession. Fair points, but disagree that you can't evaluate backups against each other

    I hope not in a late round. I will be shocked if we do, but I will definitely be glad. Pray that it will be a QB with height or a natural QB, please.

    i think we can win with taylor for a week or two, but any significant time were done. Moore garrard and edwards is intriguing, mostly garrard thiugh. Id prefer the back up to be older if were not grooming a young one.
