    Bitter sweet to be sure, but he does have a WR or two. Who knows? With that defense he won't have to put up big numbers to keep them competitive. Maybe Fitzgerald will finally get some QB love.

    I hope he does great, though he's playing one of the best defenses in the NFL. If he plays well, it will give credence to the idea that the Pats are good at developing QBs, and might even possibly have an indirect effect on Ryan Mallett's value.

    If Someone told me that Larry Fitzgerald would have less yards than Brandon Lloyd,I would have made them a resident of an insane asylum.

    A beat writer in Arizona tweeted that Hoyer will be their 7th QB to play in 3 years.

    I hope he can make the most of this chance.

    Best of luck to Brian, he just needed a chance and it looks like it's a great opportunity for him to show what he can do.

    His bar isn't very high to succeed in that organisation:

    Kevin Kolb 8TD's, 3 Int's

    Other ARI QB's combined - 2TD's, 17 Int's

    Incredible stat.

    I beg to differ - it sounds like the bar is set very high indeed. Even Sanchez would be challenged to live up to those kind of numbers. :bricks:

    Why condolences? I think Hoyer is a competent QB who should hold his own. I hope he makes a name for himself out there. He deserves it.

    Because his first NFL start is for the reeling Cardinals and is against a, no doubt, very pissed off 49ers team...

    It almost certainly won't happen, but it would be really strange if Tom Brady's backup for three years were to beat the team he lost to, two weeks ago.

    And he would be doing it with the worst offense in the league on the road, while Brady failed with the best offense at home :eek:

    Am I missing something??? He backed up Tom Fricking Brady for 4 years and no one gives him a shot? He looked great in preseason.

    It boggles my mind why some of the teams with poor QBs didn't give him a chance....Charlie friggin' Batch?????

    I realize it's the Jest, but if they just admitted they efffed up with buttfumble and passed on teabag, Hoyer would have been at min. a solid backup with a wealth of knowledge on all things Pats and how to do things right.

    Oh, I get it, he's not 6'6" with a cannon arm.

    It's mostly a lack of familiarity with the system and lack of experience (including bad) situation. Better the jag you know who was with you in camp or ran a similar system for someone else than some guy who just got cut (from a team that runs a scheme unlike most everyone else who has never started).

    I decided a long time ago there are probably as many potentially viable QB's who come out of college never to get a shot as there are QB's who make it. Mostly because coaches and coordinators become enamored of a handful of guys every season and by the time most of them bust guys who might have actually developed are selling insurance or working for investment banks. Then the busts get a second shot as a backup based on they started once and might be misunderstood...

    Compared to other positions where everyone needs a couple of guys only 3-5 QB's that get drafted every year ever get anything approaching a clear shot at hanging around let alone starting in the NFL. They should really allow teams to carry a developmental QB on the PS over and above the 8 player limit. I know it was talked about a while ago, I think when NFLE went belly up, because of the dearth of quality starters being developed due to roster limitations.

    But without its best offensive weapon, and in a steady rain.

    +GRONK, –rain = win.

    What an opportunity for Hoyer. If he can play good for one game, hopefuly the Cards think twice about drafting Geno Smith or Matt Barkley, yuck!

    The Steelers released him when Roethlisberger was ready to come back.
    Arizona claimed him off waivers.

    The Cardinals might have claimed him simply hoping Brady taught him how to avoid IR every time he's hit. No QB in Arizona seems to have figured that out yet.

    He'll at least be an improvement over the garbage that Arizona has been trotting out there recently, though you may not know it due to the fact that the 49ers will probably be coming after him with the ferocity of a Leopard.
