With the news that Aaron Murray is still on an NFL roster and Zach Mettenberger no longer is, that puts a whole new light on G-Day QBR.

Well I guess I’m having crow for dinner. I was one that always thought Murray was a college QB while Zach fit the NFL-body-type and would play on Sundays. But what do I know, I thought we would beat Vandy last year.
uh, didn’t ZM play on Sundays? this one wins the prize!
One other thing Murray and Mettenberger have in common — neither of them have won an NFL game yet.
Mett could still sign with another team. Has Murray ever started or completed a regular season pass?
Murray has never attempted a regular season pass if I’m remembering correctly. He’s living the Chase Daniel dream right now. Getting paid very well to hold the clipboard, but never getting hit.
I always dreamed of being a bullpen catcher when I was younger.
No, but he says the money is good. Back up QB in the NFL, one of the best jobs going, IMHO.
And he does not get clobbered every week. Seating or rather standing pretty I can say. LOL.
Can you say “Don Strock”….
Agree, Otto’s a smart dude here. ZM will get picked up by the end of the week, also right on AM. Nailed it!
Thanks for stopping by, Mrs. Mettenberger.
I’m seriously impressed one person has access to so many computers. The funny thing is he doesn’t realize we know him regardless of his moniker.
I hope the Rams give Murray a real chance. I still believe Murray can play pro football and be a success. He’s another Drew Brees IMHO.
He’s nit really another Brees. Brees was a first round pick and us headed to the Hall of Fame. Guys like Brees are pretty rare.
I think Brees was 2nd round to San Diego. Not sure he’s HOF material either, unless he starts winning a heck of a lot of games in his remaining few years. He’s Archie Manning or Warren Moon with a super bowl ring.

Drew Brees has more passing yards than Dan Marino and a super bowl ring, and you don’t think he is Hall of fame material? I’m hardcore falcon fan, but it’s hard to take you serious after a comment like that.
I hate the Aints as much as any other Falcons fan. But Brees is in the hall.
Guys like Brees are singular…. so far. That’s why I thought Aaron’s chances as a starting NFL QB were low. How many 6 foot pocket passers have made it in my lifetime? One. Drew Brees.
As far as Mett being the better choice over Murray, well that’s just laughable.
Aaron’s not really just a pocket passer. He’s actually pretty damn mobile assuming his knee has mended like we have been told. I probably did the wrong comparison above. Aaron is more like Russell Wilson than Brees but I also think Aaron is more accurate than Wilson..
drew brees-omg man. AM will never earn a start for any team, he’s insurance, he only starts if people get injured..I liked him on the Bachelor though, he’s a decent actor.
He was not on The Bachelor.
That’s how good of an actor he is.
He’s been a practice squad guy. That doesn’t pay near the same as the NFL minimum. He hasn’t made a team roster in a while. I wonder if years on the practice squad count toward NFL retirement vesting? Probably not.
Good luck Aaron. We want to see you play!
NFL minimum is 412000. I think Murray signed for 615,000/ year. The practice squad position pays around 90,000 a year. Murray signed an undisclosed contract.
money answers all. Want to compare NFL bucks between the two?
no, i’d rather look at head-to-head record.
and arrests in Remerton
10 starts, 2300+ career passing yards at 60% with 7 TD’s versus No stats accumulated.
Which are you writing home about?
It’s all possible but I don’t think Josh Dobbs is an NFL level QB because of the consistently bad accuracy he displayed. Smart guy, decent set of wheels, but erratic with his throws and the system he was in didn’t do him any favors in prepping for the next level. Maybe Gruden worked wonders for him after the season and he will succeed but another risky QB draft pick to me.
Death of a meme? Hardly. Whoever predicted Mettenberger would have a better statistical career than Murray looks like a genius right now. Did AM even throw a pass yet in a live game, does he even have any statistics to compare to ZM? ZM is really good when he has a decent line and decent receivers around him, http://www.cfbstats.com/2013/leader/national/player/split01/category02/sort02.html AM has been a royal NFL flop as a career clipboard holder. ZM should get picked up soon by another team.
Sarcasm goes straight over your head, I take it.
Apparently you have a big man crush on ZM not that there’s anything wrong with that
Are you his DADDY?
You seem a bit obsessed.
“ZM is really good when he has a decent line and decent receivers around him.” That’s some insight there. Who knew a qb could benefit from a line and receivers?
I can cover our best receiver if you put Lawrence Taylor circa 1986 over Wynn. I’m really good in coverage when the qb is on his ass. I’m like champ bailey.
