I never heard of this guy, but Hasselbeck talked him up on Sirius Radio


Recommended Posts

I was listening to the Afternoon Blitz on Sirius Radio today. Solomon Wilcots hosts the show with some obnoxious radio guy. However, the other guy is on vacation and Matt Hasselbecks's brother is subbing for him. I think his name is Tim Hasselbeck. For purposes of this discussion, I'll call him Tim.

Tim was discussing the hidden gems at QB in the NFL. He cited guys like Garcia, Romo, Garrard and Brady as examples of unknowns that step in and produce at a high level. He mentioned one guy that has bounced around the league (Seattle, Europe, Miami and Buffalo) and has flown under the radar.

He went on to say that his brother, Matt, felt that this guy presented a real threat to usurp him as starter. I had never heard of this guy.....never. Here is a short write up on him from the Bills' website. I can't say whether he could succeed as a starter, but in our situation, would it hurt to sign him?
