Check him out right here fellas

 

You had my curiosity.

Now you have my attention.

Solid pickup.  He won't make the 53 I don't think, but if we could stash him on the PS to compete with Benkart......

I don’t want the ball out of Matt’s hands on any play. 

I could see if you had a washed up, weak armed qb that’s seen better days, cough, but not a stud like Matty.

If he plays decent at all in pre season ...I am not sure that we would beable to stash him on the PS.

With so many teams using qbs like him I coukd certainly see teams like Baltimore ,Seattle and some others snatching him up

If you watch his highlight video from college, you'll see a lot of passes to number 7, Ooops, I mean 83, who I believe is our very own Russell Gage. If Etling sees any action tonight, wouldn't be surprised to Gage out with him.

There is one main thing I like about him as a backup. IMO if we lose Matt for a long period of time our season is done...BUT what I like is if we would lose Matt for say 1-4 games, a dual threat QB can keep defenses off balance enough to win a few games (think of how BAL got hot w/ Jackson even though he couldn’t pass accurately)

Gage was #83 in college, but yes, he's featured in some very nice highlights of Etling.

My bad, I stand corrected.  Have changed it in my post.

Dang, that's the downside.  If he did well, half the goobers on this board would be wanting to trade Matt after 2 games.

And you would know to never trust their opinions again.

Probably, wouldn't be surprised if  he's in in the fourth quarter.

Doubt it but you never know. He very well could since they keep it simple in preseason.

Nice and you have to wonder what the long term plans are for him.  I hope we get to see him tonight.

Think they want a cheap young QB who can effectively back up Ryan for 3-4 years, then,either take Ryan's place if he fades or be nice trade bait.

Yeah, be nice to see a QB who could actually, score points playing in the second half, well, scoring points for his own team.
