It is hard to believe that the once promising career of Tim Couch has quickly crashed and burned. Couch was clinging to hope that his career could be revived in Green Bay behind the tutorage of Favre, but it appears that Couch is about to hit rock bottom. Thus far Couch has a QB rating of 39.6%. 8 completions in 28 attempts, good for an abysmal (you do the math) completion percentage, a 2.9 yards/attempt average, and 82 measly yards. Green Bay fans better be praying that (A) Favre does not get hurt (B) Favre does not call it a day anytime soon.
Quincy Carter landed with the “J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS” today. I have a whole lot more to say on this, but I will save it for later. I just question if Jets offensive coordinator Paul Hackett has been in Ricky’ stash:
“I think this guy is a magnificent fit,” offensive coordinator Paul Hackett said of Carter playing in a West Coast offense. “I said it when he came out of Georgia. I looked at him extensively. … I likened him to Steve Young, in my opinion.” [source – NFL.com]
Steve Young? Give me a f’ing break. That is about the most ridiculous thing I have heard. Ever. I am hard pressed to think of anything more ridiculous than comparing Steve Young to Quincy Carter. I think the NFL should hand down a fine for that one. Talking about a low blow for Young. If I were Young, I would sue Hacket, the Jets, and the NFL (deep pockets) for defamation of character.
