He made one glaring mistake with a hold on a kickoff. He is getting a lot of playing time. Great to see him grow each week and the WFT sweep the Cowgirls.

Surprised no one posted this yet.

All of the Denver Broncos QBs are out due to injury/covid protocol this week. Apparently they asked the NFL if they could have some of their coaching staff who were QBs in college play . . . Tie to JMU= Justin Rascati is an offensive quality control coach.

Link

Quote from the article:
Quote:The Broncos were desperate enough for a quarterback that they asked the NFL to allow assistant coaches to play today against the Saints. But the league said no.

Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver reports that the Broncos asked if they could have one of their offensive quality control coaches, Justin Rascati or Rob Calabrese, play quarterback today. But the league would not allow it.
.
.
.
Rascati quarterbacked James Madison to the FCS national championship in 2004. Calabrese was a part-time quarterback at UCF from 2008 to 2012 and threw for 1,276 yards in his college career.

With those options out, the Broncos are going with practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback today.

From the part you didn‘t quote:
Quote:This has happened before. In 2009, the Eagles were short on quarterbacks in training camp and asked if they could have one of their coaching interns, Matt Nagy, play quarterback in a preseason game. Nagy, now the Bears’ head coach, actually practiced with the Eagles for one day before the NFL said that moving him from the coaching staff to the roster would constitute a violation of the league’s limits on roster sizes.
And Nagy played at UD 97‘-00‘ where he was an AA..

And yet the NFL will continue shuffling everybody else’s schedule while forcing the Broncos go out there with a practice squad WR masquerading as a QB. Dangerous when you got a guy with no knowledge of the playbook pretty much calling run plays and dump passes, not hard to get your D fired up to defend that.

Jerry is such a fool.

1) Ben was not good but was far better than Hinton. Hinton had one completion and more interceptions than completions.
2) Not the same situation at all.

Ben must feel great having your owner say something dumb about you and then you start trending on Twitter and people make jokes again. Oh well, it’s part of the job I guess and that’s why you make the big bucks.

Not a good look from Jerry Jones. What does he have to gain in making such a statement? Low class.

Geez, what a classless thing to say. I've never been a fan of Jerry and this certainly solidifies it.
He drafted Ben as a QB in the 7th round that was not ready to be a starting QB and he KNEW it. That's the ONLY comparison.
And to throw Ben under the bus like that is a d*** move. Screw him.

Not shocked Jerry took the classless shot.

But also don't think Ben will see another snap in a NFL game.

I root for all JMU players moving up to the professional ranks. I sill think through the years we had other JMU QBs who would of been more prepared for the NFL ranks.....

Agreed. I think Ben's time will be coming to an end after this year but i blame the coaching staff. It was just gimmick play after gimmick play. If they watched any film they could have rolled him out, run some RPOs and get him some easy short completions unfortunately it was a no win situation

RE: #ProDukes
He had no line, the playcalling sucked, and Zeke was asleep at RB. Ben wasn't good, but given the situation it could have been much worse. Hell, he was still statistically the better QB in that matchup. This is exactly why I said before the game that it was the worst thing that could have happened to him. He had his one chance too early and it went terribly (again, not all his fault). Weeks later he's still a laughing stock online. Near impossible to come back from that. Unless he really impresses in practice he'll probably be stuck in practice squad land because he got thrown in the fire too quickly.

It most likely won’t be with the Cowboys, but I’m of a different opinion about Ben’s future in the NFL.

RE: #ProDukes
I don't take the statement as much of a dig at Ben as you all do. Admittedly that may change if I heard the question that prompted the statement and the rest of Jerry's answer.

Neither coaching staff were expecting these ex ACC QBs to play in a game this year, much less start. Neither player had a preseason game to warm up to NFL speed. Ben had a few plays of NFL experience the week prior and a few days of practice to his start. Hinton had neither of those. It was certainly more challenging for Denver. However, I believe these were two of the biggest starting QB challenges in 2020. No other team to my knowledge has started their 3rd string QB, and if so, I doubt it was a rookie. So if the Cowboys had the second hardest challenge and the Broncos had the first, then I'm okay with him trying to equate the two situations. I mean he has nothing to lose by trying to equate them. Even if he knows they aren't equal, if he can convince people the Cowboys were as challenged as the Broncos, then that loss to the Eagles doesn't look as bad for the Cowboys. He is wrong as they weren't the same, and he is a fool for thinking such if he truly believes it, but the statement isn't an insult to Ben in my eyes, just an idiotic comment from an old dude that probably forgot what he ate for breakfast.

Does Jerry still hate Ben? Absolutely. But I don't believe this was an insult to Ben, but an admit to validate the Cowboys' loss.

I just don't get the hate. It was like New Hampshire 2018 all over again. What quarterback could have performed under that pressure? Hint: No one.

Ben is still plenty worthy to play, even start, in the NFL. Despite his detractors, even on this board, where you would think he would be supported by his fellow alums, I hope he gets a good shot.

Quarterback in the NFL is a very weird position. There are total morons in the front offices of many teams who really don't know their asses from a fifth of liquor.

Case in point: Tom Brady was the seventh quarterback selected in the 2000 NFL draft in the sixth round. Did he suck then? Does he suck now? You tell me.

Clearly, any expert evaluator of football talent should have seen the greatness in Tom Brady from the jump. But, they didn't. No shame on them, most people couldn't see it. However, those experts are paid to see it. Bottom line - they have no more idea than you or me what they are doing.

That's just the way it goes.

Another question: What did DiNucci do that was so terrible against Philly? He wasn't Superman, but he wasn't terrible, either. I recall a sidearm pass that was criticized mightily. I also saw a receiver on that pass standing flat-footed who didn't break for the ball. He could easily have caught that pass if he had broken to the inside. He just stood there. Nooch's fault.

WTF!?
