Still trying to figure it out...

I'm still not quite getting the decision to draft Pat White, and then saying he will compete for the backup job and then some.
 
Does that mean that he's got that much talent?  Or that they plan to run more wildcat-like plays in '09?  Or maybe something else?
 
I just don't know.
 
But one thing I do know for sure - make that 3/3 in drafting a QB on the first day of the NFL draft.  First you had Beck, last year it was Henne, this year its White.
 
That's something Nick, Dave, and Jimmy (and even Shula) didn't do over the last decade.  And as Ireland said "you can never have enough quality QBs"

And they cut Beck today. With the Pat White signing, they knew they wouldn't get much for him, and they couldn't give him snaps with both Henne and White needing them.

I wonder how hard they tried to shop John before the draft?
