whoever thought that boyd would be taken instead of jacobs was crazy, mostly after you look at his stats.

Stats arent the whole story...especially in pre season....

Coaches look at long term potential in guys like these....

I do think that Jacobs will win the job...I'm just not sold on Boyd...

Then again...I dont do this for a living...Cowher and Colbert do...very successfully I might add...:cool: :cool:

Jacob...10 points

Boyd....0 points

Boyd is horrible and has no potential, anyone who watched him in the joke called NFL Europe can see that.

Boyd is athletic and has a huge arm, the latter being the sole reason NFL teams find him interesting. Unfortunately his bullets are either off target or right on the money to a DB. He lacks touch and clearly cannot read defenses. Sorry Boyd, turn yourself into a WR/TE and even then good luck with your so called NFL career.

We still don't have a No. 3 QB.

We have two No. 4's.

Welcome to the NFL 2006 style

I didn't see anything I liked about either Boyd or Jacobs really... Boyd looked like a deer in headlights last night.

I don't like Boyd either, but I like Jacobs less.

St Pierre was a better option than these two clowns.

And after all of the BS he went through to stay a Steeler he pulled the rip cord exactly at the time when his stock was about to go up. REALLY BAD TIMING.

Jacobs will be our third stringer.........and possibly second string next year....If he can keep up with his college stats you will see that he makes very few mistakes.....And is very accurate..

Out of the two QBs, I see a lot more talent and potential in Omar Jacobs than I do in Shane Boyd. Boyd's passes are all over the place, he doesn't have the right touch on the ball and it looks like he is playing dodge ball instead of throwing a football, imo. He also runs around like a chicken with his head cut off in that backfield, though he did make a nice run against the Vikes' scrubs on Saturday night to his credit. As pisnNapalm stated, he looks like a deer in the headlights out there where Omar seems to have more poise. We don't need a mini-me of Kordell - we need a capable 3rd stringer who can step in and get the job done if called upon to do so. As Batch is getting up there in years as far as QBs go, we need a reliable future back-up to Ben in a couple of years. I don't thik Shane Boyd fits that job description.
