    Yep, wouldn't surprise me for Emery to add another vet DB or two for depth and cutting loose someone like Hayden or MDJ.

    I just hope he protects the football well, keeping those turnovers down to a minimum. I also want to see the team play all 4 quarters, and not just the last quarter. Put some serious points on the board early in games rather than have to do the 4th quarter heroics. Play the entire game. Our run-blocking can help here if it improves this year. We need to be able to convert in short yardage situations to keep the chains moving, instead of the 3-and-outs early in games.

    Regarding the injuries to Jay, I just figure he's probably not going to play a 16 game season, ever. Now that he's older, this could be even more of a problem. I figure the best Emery and Trestman can do is to have a system QB who can carry the load when Jay goes down to his injuries each year.

    We definitely need to find a cool nickname for this guy.

    JABF, injuries happen in the NFL and some are just bad luck. Some are avoidable or at least "risk manageable". When we had a shit OL and shit receiving corps it was understandable that Jay got killed. Last year, not so much. We gave up the 2nd least number of sacks in the whole league IIRC. Freak stuff can't be prevented. Holding the ball too long or being reckless is something you can control.

    Manning and Brady are both much older than Jay yet they managed to stay healthy for 16 games.

    There's gonna be a lot of bad jokes coming out if/when Fales plays and if he looks like ass out there. If he sees a single snap in the RS this year then something has gone horribly wrong.

    Emery pronounced it "fells" but that really doesn't inspire much more confidence, Cutler is down right now, we have faith in his backup fells.....

    he can fells down on the job, as long as it's not right after the snap, ala the Chutch or the Krenzel. It's nice to know he's never going to be that sort of bad, regardless of how limited his good is.
