I have a hard time believing that teams would be lining up to grab MBT since I'd guess a third of the league only carries two qbs.

I think it may be even less than that.

Indifferent, really, but I'd probably only carry 2, as I'd rather risk losing MBT than a LB or CB or OL that someone else might claim.....

Graham Harrell was signed by the Jets and the Bills traded for Thaddeus Lewis, neither of who really have any more significant experience than MBT. Lewis has 1 start and Harrell has 4 appearances (all in blowouts, I imagine).

While they may not line up for MBT, there would be interest, if there was interest for those 2. His skill-set is certainly better than that of Harrell (I don't know enough about Lewis to make a judgment on him).

It's like I said in the Joe Webb thread.

MBT couldn't win the starter's job at UCLA or San Jose State. He went undrafted, and as a pro he could neither earn a roster spot with three different NFL teams nor win a starter's job in the UFL.

As far as I know he hasn't seen any playing time against a first-string NFL defence, even in preseason.

Graham Harrell and Thaddeus Lewis at least have something that resembles a body of work behind them, and were acquired only because both the Jets and Bills have injury issues at QB.

I seriously don't see any NFL team (other than perhaps the Vikings) opening up a roster spot for MBT at this point in time.

I think we'll have three QBs but we'll replace MBT with someone that gets cuts or tried to sneak into the practice squad.

I am looking at Tyler Wilson from Oakland. Love to him if they cut him.

Wilson has been horrible. the undrafted QB they picked up has out performed him so far. If you cant make it in Oakland as a QB given how poor there Qb situation is, youre probably not going to make it in the NFL.

Rather let Wilson develop a year and if he doesn't show anything at the end of next year, cut him. It doesn't hurt to have him as a third QB. He had a bad time in Arkansas.

BTW, Oakland doesn't have that bad of a QB situation. They just have a LOT of them

Matt Flynn has been very bad this preseason and who knows about Pryor. Id say the Raiders QB situation is even worse then the Vikings QB situation.

They have two rookies and one guy that has played okay but should have been in a rookie last year.

McLeod Bethel-Thompson, playing most of the game at quarterback for the Vikings in their 24-23 victory over the Tennessee Titans Thursday night, guided a 71-yard drive that ended with the winning field goal with 1:38 to play. Bethel-Thompson hit 19 of 26 passes for 187 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Joe Banyard, who had seven receptions and ran for 62 yards.

MBT: "The O-line played absolutely fantastic. Joe Banyard ran the ball like heck and the receivers were catching everything. I owe it all to them. They were playing great and made my job easy. Hopefully, I'll get another chance sometime in the future."
