    If only there were a FA QB available who had a 4:1 TD/Int ratio in his most recent season and a career passer rating in the top 20 all-time...

    Kaepernick? Sure thing, I'm a fan -- make a phone call and bring him in, Russ.

    But he doesn't know the system and most experiments with mid-season drop-in QBs have ended in greasy trash fires.

    Kaep could be different, who knows? #shrug

    Analysis: Packers can do worse than sticking with Brett Hundley

    Callahan (75.9 preseason passer rating) reportedly measured 6-feet-1 1/8 at his campus pro day in 2016, which is below the 6-2 minimum NFL teams prefer. Anything under that makes it tough to play in the pocket, so then you need exceptional compensating traits.

    Yet, for an undersized quarterback, Callahan also ran a surprisingly slow 40 time of 4.98 seconds. Over the last two preseasons, he has shown good short-area quickness and has made his living outside the pocket. But outrunning backups and camp bodies is one thing; outrunning starting NFL rushers is quite another.

    CK was on the bench at the end of his career for a reason. He's a one-read QB with one type of pass (bullet) that requires the system to be built around him. He's a terrible 'drop-in' candidate for any team. He would need to be a back-up somewhere like Seattle where the system is built around a mobile QB that doesn't have to throw a pass to win the game. On top of that CK isn't even training professionally, he doesn't have proper facilities in New York where he chooses to base himself to be with the girlfriend that aborted any chance of him returning to the NFL when she called the only owner willing to sign him a slave owner.

    If CK was any good Belicek would've grabbed him when he traded Janeane to the 49ers. Instead he took a known quantity, Brian Hoyer.

    Well there you go.

    The Steelers get a win this weekend -- just try not to break Hundley while you do it. #gopackgo

    Steelers are epic at playing down to shitty opponents. Their losses are to the Bears and Jacksonville this year. But it's not limited to this season, it's really a pretty glaring trait of the Tomlin era in general.

    Hopefully playing on SNF will erase a little of that as they tend to do better in national games.

    It will definitely help to play on SNF. Tomlin's record in Prime time games is really really good. Like 17-3 overall and like 8-1 at home.

    Just to give Carlo some context:

    This was after the Bears loss early this season.
    That ran the Steelers record in their past 18 games on the road against teams with losing records to 5-13. It dropped them to 10-7 under Mike Tomlin in games which they were favored by at least a touchdown on the road.
    So if the game was in Green Bay I wouldn't have much confidence in the Steelers winning. They have lost to some absolutely hideous QBs and teams on the road.

    The Cleveland Browns are 0-10 but they can still make the playoffs.

    Here's how.
