But he can’t wait to develop our 2nd round qb right? Lollerskates. This pick gets worse everyday without him taking a snap, somehow.
Coach speak? Perhaps. But I doubt it. Im sure he really thinks it.
If Brady goes down, Gabbert steps in. He’s more polished and NFL ready. Trask is going to sit and learn for at least this year and possibly next year. I hope we see a lot of him in the preseason. If I were Arians, I’d have Trask in for at least the entire second half of all three games.
Could be his lifetime W-L record of 13-35 is what keeps people realizing how underrated he is.
But I do think the situation you are in makes a big difference. Gabbert is a veteran now who has had a chance to learn the system for a couple years now. If he has to come in I think he could keep things moving, but it’s impossible to say. I’d like to tell both Gabbert and Kiermaier no headfirst slides!
A little confusion about his salary. Wasn’t it reported that he signed a contract worth “up to” $2.5 mil. But Spotrac just lists $1.5 mil, 750K contract with a $750K signing bonus. I suppose there is an incentive relating to playing time, but that should count against the cap and Spotrac didn’t have that. That is a minor detail, but it could give some indication about how much was the Bucs wanting to keep Gabbert around vs. how little interest any other teams had in him. How much were they counting on him to be a part of the future as opposed to just a stopgap backup player.
Roy, if incentives are unlikely to be earned. They would go against next years cap if reached. Likely to be reached is based upon last year’s performance. For instance if it was to reach 1200 yards that is very unlikely and would not go against this year.
Gannon and Collins are the only ones I would agree with. Steve Young went 7-3 before he took over full time in SF. Just proves how much the Bucs sucked back then. George as in Jeff George? I don’t remember him being anything but mediocre.
