In the Blue and white corner stands Matt Leinart. Ole Matty is just the unluckiest guy in pro football right now. He never worked out in Arizona with the Cardinals, I mean it says a lot that Derek Anderson beats you out. He rides the pine for nearly a year and a half in Houston and finally gets his shot with Shaub on the IR, and he screws up his throwing shoulder and is more than likely done for the season. Seriously could the guy have more bad luck? He actually looked good too against a decent passing defense in the Jags. The only savior is that even with the brief appearance he probably earned himself another season in the NFL.
In the orange and blue corner we have for Notre Dame standout Brady Quinn. Quinn came out of ND with much praise as the can’t miss kid. Well guess what? He missed, big time. After flaming out in Cleveland (which I guess to some extent was to be accepted), he ends up in Denver. He has an open competition between Orton, himself and Tebow. Can’t beat out either. Now Orton is so bad that just let him go and Tebow has a hard time completing more than 10 passes in a game. I still am trying to wrap my head around the fact that Tebow is starting over him. I guess that just goes to show you how bad he is even in practice (where there is no contact for QBs) for the Bronco brass not to start him.
My gut tells me that it’s Quinn since he has become a third string quarterback, although now he is a number 2. Leinart I still think could become a started, but really I think both have a long way to go to prove themseves as professional football players. eBay puts both of them around the $20 mark on average. Either way you go though, do either of these guys have an up side at this point in their careers?
So who do you think is more worthless at this point in their careers?
