Never thought I'd see the day that a thread is made for a 3rd/4th string quarterback.

Yeah I think Boyd is looking in the window. He shows some ability BUT youu got to put TOUCH on the ball. He doesn't seem to have that ability. Well atleast not today, but maybe he was NERVOUS. Next week shall tell more

That will happen when Batch is the 2nd stringer. It seemed like he knew where he wanted to go but just couldn't get it there.

Please tell me you're kidding???????

Boyd looked pretty damn good.
He's got a strong arm along with some decent accuracy. Putting touch on the ball and threading the needle will come with time.

He sure looked a lot more confident with much more field presence than Omar Jacobs.

Sorry, but Jacobs will be the odd man out, you can bank on it.
Not much need for a weak armed, shot-put throwing QB!!

Damn good? I guess that's relative. Omar is a college senior in a pro uniform. The first down pass was a shot put to be sure but he made the play.

Lucky for us Ben and Batch don't have to play so we get the time to see which one they want.

In reference to you speaking of a "weak arm",...if that's the case then Ben's is just as weak,.... as he consistently throws short to mid range passes lacking velocity,...as well as underthrown deep balls. (That is unless he's (Ben) rolling to his right throwing across his body). This does'nt mean that he or Omar lack arm strength,...it's a matter over thinking and or comfort. (You understand this if you play or have played football). As far as field presence,......don't you think it's FAR to premature to even comment on that ? Boyd's potential is in no way even close to being comprable to Omar's upside.

Boyd accurate? 5 TDs to 11 INTs in Europe

In preseason he is 0 TD to 1 INT and another INT called back on a penalty away from the play.

If you want accurate, check Jacobs stats from college.
