Neil O'Donnell released

Postby skinsfaninroanoke » Sun Aug 31, 2003 7:52 pm

What do you think of him as another QB?

58% completion
21,458 yards
118 TD
67 INT
4 rush TD
81.6 rating

Rob Johnson

61% completion
5,702 yds
30 TD
22 Int
4 Rush TD
84.6 rating

I like his TD/Int rating and I do know he keeps his composure fairly well. I also know he does a much better job with not taking things half a**ed as Rob Johnson does - want proof - remember him stretching in camp? Right - he almost didn't. Watch him sell a play action pass - right - he doesn't. Remember how they had to bring Wuerffel in to force him to take things seriously? Seems to me that if the 2 QB thing isn't for real that O'Donnell would be a good pickup. Good mentor for Ramsey too, even if the man is ugly as a hippos butt. :) :wink: :lol: :P

But as a backup, he was very good. He isn't terribly accurate but look at the TD to INT ratio.

Golly - Vinny has a career 56.1 % completion percentage and 244 TD to 233 Int. How many times has Vinny been to the big game? RIIIIIIIIIGHT - zero.

Neil O' Donnell - 2

Neil wins.

He did very well as a back up for Tenessee one year when McNair was hurt if I remember right too.

6-0 as a backup in 2000 if I am seeing it right on NFL.com and has been 10-3 in the last 3 seasons combined. Not bad.

I agree he did a good job in Tenn. I still cant forget his faked injuries in 96. But I guess if my line sucked and I had Kotite for a coach I would want to be in the bench too.
