But he's staring and Isaiah Mackenzie for that

I need more sleep ... or less work ... or something ...

I mixed the two up in my head.  Was thinking Williams had the return for TD (play shown at 12:09) in addition to two TDs, not MacKenzie.  That makes more sense, now.  It was an odd thing to say to a practice squad player.

As expected.  I'd love to see more of Williams, but experience usually trumps potential in the playoffs.

Williams might still be active but you want someone that knows how to pass block especially against a blitz heavy team.

As well as a dependable receiving threat which TJ has been throughout his career.  Kids got talent.  Played at Bama.

Point taken.  Bama is known slightly more for their RBs than their QBs.  

Seriously?  Bama's the home of Namath, Stabler, & Tua.  (1 of these things is not like the others.)  😉

I wonder who could drink more between Namath and Stabler?

That's one of those truly imponderables like how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

Isn't that like 50 years apart between Stabler/Namath and Tua?  Bart Starr also went to Bama and Matt Jones looks like a player.

What school is QB U anyway?  Bama? Purdue with Brees, Len Dawson and Griese? BYU with Young and McMahon and now Wilson?  Georgia with Tarkenton, Trippi, and Stafford (Fields?)? Oklahoma currently with Murray and Mayfield? Miami for a while with Kelly, Kosar and Gino Toretta.

Bart Starr.  Knew there was a 3rd "big name" from the past, but it just wasn't coming.

Perdue also had Gary Danielson.  (Probably underrated because he played on some awful Lion teams.)

It definitely does seem to be a bit cyclic in nature.

I don't think there's a QB school, but there are definitely schools to avoid for QBs...USC, OSU, Alabama, etc.

Not much question about but I will tell you one thing, I gave Katherine Webb McCarron a ride to the stadium and I can certainly vouch for their taster in woman.

They need a taster for them?  Just what are they afraid the women are packing?  😝

And how does one go about applying for that job? 😉

You have to remind me to tell you the whole story if we ever get to a game together,

I have a buddy who played in the NFL. He always told me that if you can play, the NFL will find you.  No where do I think this is more true then QB.

These are the AFC remaining QBs. Pretty diverse group of schools. 

Mahomes - Texas Tech

Allen - Wyoming

L. Jackson - Louisville

Mayfield - Oklahoma (started as a walk-on at Texas Tech).

This year’s draft will feature QBs in the 1st round from Clemson, OSU and Alabama, but also from BYU and ND St.

I agree. And that's what makes no QB U, because the NFL will find you and they need a QB more than anything, so they'll take a chance and trade up for a kid from the Mountain West.

I think QBs from Bama, OSU, and USC go high a ton, but they flake in the NFL when their roster isn't stacked compared to their peers.

Just checked a few different weather sites, weather, accu-weather (local) and Yahoo, all 3 are saying 45% rain/snow by game time and 50% snow by 9pm, winds 13-15 with 20 gusts. I am going to say the slick conditions and low moderate wind speeds favor the Bills passing game over the Ravens running game, it also favors Bass in the kicking game I'd surmise given Baltimore's kicker is good, but he hasn't played in the swirling winds of the Ralph.

If this weather forecast holds, Bills 34 - Ravens 14.
