I feel the same way, Soul. I'd rather keep both Palmer and Clausen on the regular roster (assuming they keep 3) and send Fales to the PS for a year of tuning up. People can laugh at P and C for their lack of accomplishment but Fales falls far short of even that. He's a 6th round pick from a small school with no NFL experience as even a backup and has reportedly been "raw" ahem ahem which is code for "doesn't know WTF he's doing and has an arm like a overcooked noodle". A year running the scout team getting reps and coaching with Cavanaugh might not be a bad thing. Maybe next year he can compete for a real backup spot. As you pointed out the two vets combined don't cost much at all and if either one of them shows anything this season he'll probably be gone in FA next spring anyway. The trick will be to take advantage of the PS eligibility that Fales has and the other two don't. DF is probably going to look pretty awful in preseason anyway so that problem may just take care of itself.
