    Quincy played today for an injured Chad Pennington.

    2/3 for 66 yards and a touchdown.

    He had a chance to win the game too if the Jets defense had held Buffalo. I know a lot of people here hated him and I'm not claiming he was anything special but I miss the guy. I'm wondering if we should have just taken our chances with Quincy since Testaverde doesn't seem to be improving the offense all that much. :(

    Troy Hambrick had 4 carries for 70 yards for the Cardinals. The Cardinals beat the Dolphins today.

    Likewise, I don't want Hambrick back either.

    I don't think it did us much harm replacing Quincy with Vinny on a scale based purely on ability. The two are pretty equal in that regard -- prone to mistakes, capable of making some big plays.

    I think the damage done in that move, in hindsight, was the message it sent. Everyone knew Vinny was brought here to provide insurance, and to possibly challenge for the starting job. Throughout mini camps and the first few days of training camp though, no unbiased observers indicated Testaverde looked better. Quincy wasn't setting the world on fire, but you could tell he was the team's starting quarterback.

    Then he's outright cut. Granted, it was probably a move that needed to be made, but it set this team back mentally. The players knew we were suddenly forced to start a player that wasn't previously expected to start. It's a shame that Quincy's irresponsibility cost this team in such a manner, because like I said, I don't really blame Parcells for making the move. He was just playing with the cards dealt to him.

    And Antonio Bryant plays tonight in primetime. I'm sure he'll make us look silly.

    Agreed, I knew Quincy wasn't the answer but he could have been one hell of a warmer until Drew Henson developed. Still, I would rather take my chances with Vinny instead of Quincy. Quincy was atrocious in the latter half of the season when he actually had to face teams that were above .500 and when our defense wasn't stopping people. Imagine QUincy now in which he has even less of a running game than he had last year and no defense. That's a scary thought.

    Quincy doesn't WOW you with his accuracy but he always found ways to keep us in a ball game. You remember how ugly that win was against the Panthers a few years ago? It doesn't get any uglier than that but Quincy got us over the hump. Same would happen this year, his stats probably wouldn't have been good and posters on this board would be bagging him but I'm sure our win loss record would be the reverse of what it is now.

    This offense was built for Quincy, I think a possession receiver like KJ fits his style. Speedsters like JG and Rocket don't seem to mesh with Carter's style, because you've got to be pin point accurate with those type of receivers and Carter doesn't have that consistent accuracy to do that. One speedster and a possesion receiver is a good combo for Carter and a tweener like AB helps.

    I don't agree. Quincy is irrelevant. If he'd wanted to be the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, all he had to do was keep his nose clean and play without arguing with Sean Payton. IMO he wrote his own ticket out of town.

    As for AB, he was a headache we didn't need any more. We got an equivalent player in Morgan, it's just that he's hurt right now.

    And how did Eddie George, Vinny and Quncy Morgan do today? Hmmm. Curly
