    Could be a Saints type scenario. They had Brees, Bridgewater and Hill. Maybe Stick is destined for a similar roll to Hill. In fact watch the NFL start trending towards 2 headed QB game plans. Pocket passers with mobile qbs sprinkled in.

      Just posted something similar. Harbaugh already said that he plans on using McSorley along with Lamar next year. Nothing wrong with giving D's more to have to prepare for.

        In that case I'd agree but Whiz isnt creative like Payton. We'll see though.

          I guess Stick could also be used in practice to run the wildcat or to simulate scrambling QB's we're going to face...hmmmm...the idea has merit...

            I thought that was a reason for bringing in Taylor. It makes some sense.

              I considered this angle as well.

                Remember Fleet, Taylor is your #1 backup. Don't want to chance him getting injured scrambling in practice. Use Stick instead...

                  Thats one way of looking at it. I tend to think Rivers is as ironclad as it gets. So if Taylor can help this defense prepare i dont think they would hesitate to use him. They throw a red shirt on him anyways. If you dont run guys in practice out of fear they will get hurt then thats not good imo. And i think Lynn has said something along those lines in the past.

                  Obvioulsy now Stick can be used in that role. But i dont think he was drafted to be a practice player. I think they want him to be our #2. It saves us money next year when Taylor can be cut with little left over damage financially.

                    Interesting theory there, Fleet. Tyrod has a two year, $11 mil deal, BUT there's an Addae-like out after his first year...so they wouldn't have to pay that $7 mil the next year...

                      Yeah i think Taylor is a one year guy for us. I think the idea is that Stick can be a solid #2 for years to come. And has the athleticism to help him succeed if Rivers goes down. Crazy productive player. Might have had a better college career than Wentz.

                        I have watched Easton Stick play multiple times. 2 of those 3 losses came to my Jackrabbits.

                        He's good. How good? IDK. But Wentz went down with a thumb injury his Senior year and Stick came in and QBed the Bison for 6-8 games his freshman year. They didn't miss a beat. He even played the FCS playoff games up to the title game when Wentz came back. So he's got some moxie about him.

                        He's an athlete. Runs the ball very effectively. Very effectively. NDSU used him on designed runs a lot.

                        He's like a flanker that completes 60% of his passes. Pretty accurate thrower.

                        He did run a pro style offense. But the Bizun probably run the ball more than any team around. They are a power smashmouth football team. Lots of 2 TE sets and under center work.

                        NDSU is kinda like USC when Leinert was there. They are more talented and deeper than basically everyone they play. So I don't know how he'll be in the NFL.

                        He's a tough cookie. Runs hard. Plays hard. Very difficult to sack.
                        "...of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong."

                          Thanks for that inside info there, Coach. At first, I didn't like the Stick pick. Now, I'm kind of warming up to it...
