    I think its a definate no brainer that BB will not risk losing Brady again to a virtual rookie QB at this stage,I think O'Connell will definately be the 3rd stringer QB on this team for another year of seasoning leading to the team VERY likely to sign a backup QB with experience should the unthinkable worst case happen again and Brady out again for a lengthly time next season.

    If you had to choose the QBs remaining in FA with at least 4 years experience to sign on the team (because I think one of them WILL be 2nd stringer here) who would it be to give the team its best chance to win?

    IMO Gutierrez was an experiment which won't keep him on the team this season,I say he is not a Patriot in 2009 leaving 2 QBs right now.

    BTW: My vote was for Leftwich - Strong Arm and showed good poise and a great backup for big Ben last season and helped the world champs in a game or two down the stretch when Ben was injured.

    I'd say as far as value, risk/reward, fitting in with the Pats, etc.; my choice is Huard.

    Here's a list of the current NFL free agent QBs:

    Charlie Batch
    Kyle Boller
    Brooks Bollinger
    Todd Bouman
    Ken Dorsey
    Gus Frerotte
    Charlie Frye
    Jeff Garcia
    Trent Green
    Rex Grossman
    Joey Harrington
    Damon Huard
    Brad Johnson
    Byron Leftwich
    JP Losman
    Jamie Martin
    JT O'Sullivan
    Patrick Ramsey
    Chris Simms
    Marques Tuiasosopo
    Anthony Wright

    Huard would have been MY choice too,but hes gone to the Niners today

    Simms was signed by Patriots West (the Broncos today)

    I did like was Frerotte did last year as a replacement in Minny but hes way too old and probably retires shortly

    Why isn't Garo Yepremian on the list?

    I only had room for 10 players :) - He would have been my number 11 selection but Ian has limits in polls to 10 choices ;)

    Huard and Simms are gone ... so, I guess Patrick, I'll take a Batch of Green Boller with my Frye.

    Ramsey is the next best choice, Wright?

    I didn't see the none of the above box............I think we're fine with O'connell and Gutz fighting it out for 2&3.

    They know the system and I think KO has a lot of talent, most likely he advances to the #2 role and will be very capable of filling in fora few games if need be.

    I voted for leftwich. I think that he helped his cause plenty during his stint with P-burgh...

    That one relief game was dope.

    Who the crap voted for Losman? You've won a free kick in the junk.

    Sounds like 64 already has Gutz earmarked for WalMart this preseason...and O'Connel for a demotion to clip board holder...

    Given his track record that's as close as it comes on this board to a slam dunk no brainer that O'Connel will be the #2 and Gutz will be the #3... :D

    You'd think that if BB was okay with O'Connel and Gutierez backing up Cassel, they might be okay to back up Brady, that if BB was okay with O'Connel as a rookie #2, he might be okay with O'Connel with a year under his belt.

    I don't know why he thinks it is a no-brainer that BB won't accept second year O'Connel as #2.....Well, actually I do understand the no-brainer part, sad to say.....

    Well, I wanted Huard because I think he's a damn fine back-up. But since he signed with the 9ers, I'd rather have Garcia or Ramsey.
