Well this was joked about weeks ago when we hired Backup Doug, but it may be coming to fruition. Can’t completely hate Doug for taking the job, but I do absolutely hate the Island of Misfit Toys hes assembling. Its like Backup QB heaven. Him, his new OC, even, ironically his new STARTING quarterback, are all former backups. So between Chip gutting our roster for his character guys and injury-prone-just-need-sports-science guys and now Doug replenishing it with backups and they-just-need-a-chance guys, Eagles fans better get ready for a long road because our window of opportunity is locked up tight.
Look at this motherfucker. Armpit scratching, double-chin, backwards hat, ear piece, he is the prototypical backup QB. Will be a real pleasure to watch. I will say that being friends with Warren Buffet is a plus..
Also, this goes hand in hand with Sam Bradford being an unreasonable option at a certain price. Keep the money low, bring him back, if he gets much past $10 mill a year, then I think the LA Rams are looking for a QB again.
BTW – What a glorious photo. Talk about an Island of Misfit Toys. I see you Koy.
