RE: Heinicke in for WFT...
I think his biggest problem is I believe he ran out of practice squad eligibility (pre new covid rules)

RE: Heinicke in for WFT...
His biggest problem is that every time he had a decent opportunity with an NFL team, he suffered a significant injury and couldn't play. At that point it is always next man up and Taylor got moved down the list. When you're starting from 2nd, 3rd, or 4th position on that list it doesn't take much to remove you off of it completely.

I know he was hooked on PKs and played through a lot of pain, but not major injuries. Not sure he ever even got a concussion. Not like he didn't play hard, sacrifice his body and take hits. Not sure how much pure luck has to do with it.

What have you been smoking? Drew Brees is listed at 6’ 0”. He is taller than TH. Taylor is 5’11” at best. Taylor weighs 205, soaking wet with winter clothes. Favre is 6’2” and played at 233lbs.


Wiki lists TH as 6’1” and 210 and Favre as 6’2” and 221.

I would say he is at least 6'. I have stood next to him (I'm 6'1") and he doesn't seem noticeably shorter than me. My recollection was the he was actually taller in person than I expected him to be.

He measured slightly over 6. Im not sure thats the case but its not Like hes 5-9

Hey he still has 3 inches and 30 pounds on Doug Flutie, who also took hits... and he played before the rules were put in place to protect the QB. And if Favre is listed at 6'2", chances are he is 6'1". The "official" numbers are exaggerated across the board. While it isn't likely 100% accurate, I still think they can be used as comparisons. I think the original question that started this argument is valid... are some more injury prone or are some just lucky. I mean wouldn't the same hit at the same angle from the same lineman break Brett Favre's bone just as much as it breaks Taylor Heinicke's?

History. Facts. Says no. Have you ever watched an NFL game? Do you know how violent it can be? The avg career is 3.3 years, the average QB career is right at 3 years, 48 games. Yet thru it all Brett Favre played in an NFL record for ALL players all positions in 297 consecutive games. That number grows to over 300 when you count playoff games. Only Father Time broke that record. So the answer to your question is not just no, but hell no.

When he came to ODU he was 5' 11" tall and weighed 170 lbs. It's certainly possible to grow another 2" since then.

That's how I was. I was around 5'9 or so when I graduated high school. By the time I was 21 I was like a smidge over 5'11. When I stood beside TH he was taller than me.

It turns out that TH played better against the Bucs defense than Brees did tonight.

To be fair, Brees hasn't fully recovered from suffering a collapsed lung and several cracked ribs.

True, but Taylor also didn’t have Kamara and Michael Thomas and was only his second career start.

RE: Heinicke in for WFT...
I have been watching football for 48 years. I will take heart over height every time. What does the man have to do? Yeh,he has been hurt. Mahomes and Jackson got hurt this weekend. You say they have proved themselves. I think heineke has proven himself the right to compete. If you are truly worried about a qb getting hurt, look at your number1 qb now for Washington and if you are looking at height just remember all the busts over the years who looked great in shorts at practice but did not have half the heart heineke has. Where are they now? Schuler? Haskins?

He will get a chance to compete, he earned it, and that's all he earned. Wish him luck.

Man, I hope Taylor hires the best trainers this summer to show up at camp as the Terminator... (from T2, not the first movie)... bulked up to be indestructible. We all know he's got the brains, the skills, and the heart... Now all we need is the staying power.

And he'll continue to bring more glory to Monarch Nation and Old Dominion!!!
