Eh, he's proven in the past he can come in and drive the car without scratching it and get wins against bottom-feeders, but he's clearly done. His arm was shot in the preseason.
This feels like the organization "doing a solid" to a couple of long time friends. Next year, have to seriously pursue a guy like Orton/Henne/Moore and develop a young arm in the process.
Jerrod Johnson is still available. He never should have been released in the first place.
