Because he is probably better ( right now) than our #2 and #3 options.

Rattay would come on fine with learning the offense in my opinion. JC did fine with it last season, why can't Rattay?
Why is Collins in the same boat as Brunell? What makes you think Collins can't play? What makes you so sure? And don't judge him on pre-season while playing with 3rd and 4th stringers.

The fact is we don't know if Collins can, or can't play. All we know is he's got that 700 page playbook down cold.

I think that's debateable.

Even if he is better, I'd say he's marginally better at best and not worth the trouble.

Re: The Official Warpath Sign Tim Rattay and Cut Todd Collins Thread

I say just promote one of the QB's we'll have off of the practice squad next season (not this coming season) and make him a #3 and move Collins up to #2 (because I'm sure he could probably go another season past Brunell.) You'd have a young guy who will have some time learning the system under his belt. By the time Collins retires, the #3 guy can move up to #2 and so forth and so on. You'd have a young QB (although mostly unproven) to back up Campbell. The biggest thing you need out of a back up is someone who can at least maintain the offense and give your team a chance to be in some games if not win them.

Your right I saw those games last year. For someone who knew AL's system he sucked. Cut Collins. I would rather have Ramsey, Brunell Rattay,or good ole Gus F.

And exactly how is he going to get enough reps to learn anything over the next season or so when we're concentrating on giving almost all the reps to Campbell?

Collins is not talented. But he is cheap, and he knows how to operate the offense. Rattay will cost more, and would take time to train.

Plus, who says Rattay wants to be a back-up QB on a team with a young starter. It could be he's still on the market because he does not want to be a back-up. I certainly could imagine him wanting to be a starting QB for some team. With our current QB situation, it's not likely he would even be considered.

How the hell does a thread about Tim Rattay go on for 11 pages?

Nothing.

The QB situation is just fine for this year, we don't need to waste cash on TR. Collins/Brunell are going nowhere THIS year!

Re: The Official Warpath Sign Tim Rattay and Cut Todd Collins Thread

You're just writing this because it's the boring part of the off-season, aren't you?!

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, until you cross over it.

The other lane is always going faster, until you get in it.

The other player always looks better, until you sign him.

Yes, I think Tim Rattay would be a decent back-up somewhere, but exchanging him for Collins is going to have marginal impact on the team -- unless they get into a game. Then, it will probably be worse in either case.

I'd rather see what we have in Hollenbach and Palmer and move one of them up the depth chart.
