If he can throw the ball, he's good with me.

Not saying that's happened yet.

He has outplayed Matt Moore, which I suppose is all that matters for now, as far as his career is concerned. I feel sorry for the guy though, he has no one to throw to. Of course, that's a theme across all the rookies. We took one of Luck's only decent receivers, and it's not like we're set either.

When was the last time the league had five rookies starting week one? Luck, RG3, Weeden, Tannehill, Wilson. Crazy shit.

1983 would be my guess.

(Eason should have.)

And since Kelly didn't play for Buffalo for 2 seasons, 1983 had 4 max, I don't recall if Blackledge started right away for the Chefs.

As far as I can tell, starting rookies week 1 is a fairly recent trend.

Couldn't tell you if that's a good thing or a bad thing though, there have been busts since the first draft.

NFL tells teams to expect replacement refs in Week 1 - NFL.com

Initially, I assumed they couldn't be much worse.

But yes, they can. And they have been.

I love the NFL and like to extend the benefit of the doubt to them but this unequivocally renders any of their claims of giving a fuck about safety moot. Forever.

Hey, a rule change I can actually applaud. The IR doesn't necessarily end your season anymore:

1. Only players with a "major injury" who are placed on Reserve/Injured after 4:00 p.m., New York time, on Tuesday, September 4, or thereafter during the season, will be eligible to be reactivated at a later time.

2. A "major injury" is defined as an injury that renders the player unable to practice or play football for at least six weeks (42 calendar days) from the date of injury.

3. Each team may reactivate only one player placed on Reserve/Injured after 4:00 p.m., New York time, on Tuesday, September 4. That player must be "designated for return" at the time the club places him on Reserve/Injured, and such designation shall appear on that day's Personnel Notice.

4. Such player is eligible to return to practice if he has been on Reserve/Injured for at least six weeks from the date he is placed on Reserve. He is eligible to return to the Active List if he has been on Reserve/Injured for at least eight weeks from the date he is placed on Reserve.

Not high on Nicky, just down on Vick. I preferred Kolb to Vick as well, and we all know how good Kolb is.

Meh... he got outplayed. It wasn't really close.

But yes... its just preseason. But its not as if Flynn has done jack shit in this league. He's had one great game in his life.

You do have a point that Pete Carroll hasn't done shit to prove he can coach in the NFL either... but it's not like Matt Flynn is a proven commodity.

Another overpaid backup: Kevin Kolb. Skelton won the starting job.

Yo, Seven, the Skins are trying to pick up Steve Slaton. Know anything about him? He's had like one good year, but I don't really know what he did for you guys last year, if anything.
