I heard JC signed a 1 year deal with the Bears.

Edit: And Orton is looking at Dallas.

Tennessee vs. Kentucky Football Game Highlights - 11/29/2008 - YouTube

Why isn't anyone talking about Jonathan Crompton? People mention Grossman and Beck, but to everyone who doesn't know it, this kid served as our practice squad QB last season. He was signed to a contract at the end of the season.

Just a thought, but maybe Jonathan Crompton is like all the other dime-a-dozen practice squad qb's in the NFL, which is to say easily interchangeable. Sure there's a chance he could actually be good someday, but I believe the coaches' evaluation of him. If they don't want him playing, neither do I.

Point well taken. But considering what we saw out of the quarterback play last season, it wouldn't have mattered if Crompton had gotten a chance. The QB play was that terrible. Between Grossman and Beck, 18 TD passes were thrown against 24 INTs. Both of them had a depressing QB rating of 72.

I doubt if the coaches don't think Crompton can't play. He's viewed as a young developmental project/prospect and are just bringing him along slowly. If not, why sign him to the active roster at season's end?

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Crompton will be our PS guy if we don't get another QB in FA or draft.

I hope we don't spend precious cap money on a FA QB like Orton, who will cost to much for a backup.

Too bad we couldn't bring JC back for the 1-year, $3.5 million Chicago paid him.


I think it will be:

RG3 - Day 1 starter
Beck - Shanny obviously loves (or loved) him
Crompton - Practice Squad




Unless, we draft a Kellen Moore or another mid to late-round QB.

LOL. You crazy if you think we're keeping Beck over Rex. And why are we discussing Crompton if it'll be years before he could possibly contribute? Just let him practice and learn, and maybe in a couple years' time we'll be talking about him as a viable backup.

Beck is on the roster, Rex is not. Beck only counts $600,000 against our shrunken cap.

I thought we should have given Beck a little more playing time last season. True, we had not scored for 3 weeks, but it was a lost season at that point and we knew what Rex could do already.

We do not want to be the Bears without a real backup, but we also do not want to invest much in one. If Rex is cheap enough and no one else wants him, sure, make the swap.

If anyone but RG3 is playing QB, it's going to be a huge drop-off no matter who it is.

Beck was ten times worse than Rex. At least Rex moved the ball, Beck looked like a scared rookie all over again. It doesn't matter if Rex is unsigned or not, Beck will not be coming back. We gave him over a year to learn the playbook while riding the bench, and he still failed miserably. Our backup will either be Rex, a free agent, or a rookie we take in the later rounds of the draft. But I bet it won't be Beck.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

After what we saw out of John Beck last season, how could Mike Shanahan still think highly of him as a QB? After all, the guy is 0-7 as a starter in his NFL career and 0-3 as the Redskins quarterback. If Mike Shanahan truly liked Beck, he would have stuck with him. But his preference to reinsert Rex Grossman back into the starting lineup for the rest of the season speaks volumes on his opinion of Beck. Maybe Beck will improve during the off season. After all, he works out with the likes of Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers during the off season but from what we saw of him last season, it didn't do him a bit of good. Beck, like Eli Manning, needs his own quarterbacks coach.

As far as Crompton is concerned, this coming training camp/preseason is a opportunity for him to outshine Beck or Grossman. If he does well running the offense, or even exceeds expectations, I don't see how they can send him back to the practice squad.

Good chance Rex comes back, but it probably also depends on who else might hit the wire. Beck should be gone I think. Crompton... who cares.

Beck basically was a rookie. That's why I said to keep him out there in a lost season.

Beck had mobility that Rex did not, and did not fumble whenever anyone breathed on him. He had a few advantages over Rex.

Doesn't matter which one is our backup, we're screwed if either of them have to play. Rex will move the ball and keep the games close, but will always choke when it matters most.
