Wow, just as I was beginning to think TT may know what he’s doing, he goes out and asks Frerotte to visit. Check out Bedard’s article this morning.
I know the Packers need to think about picking up someone, but this is ridiculous. I believe it was our frequent commenter Raymidge who pointed out that for the first time in a long time, Packer fans will actually have to accept that we now must enter the Horrendous Veteran QB sweepstakes (Brock Berlin, Todd Bouman, AJ Feeley, Griese, Brad Johnson, Jamie Martin). Maybe I’m just in denial re Favre still and maybe Frerotte may not be the worst option out there. Considered that – no, the truth is Frerotte has to be about the worst option out there.
Last year, Frerotte threw 7TDs and 12INTs for a 58.3 QB rating. His career stats are equally unimpressive: 102 TDs 91 INTs for a lifetime 74.3 rating. He is a 15 year veteran who has virtually no upside. Having Quinn Gray as a back-up would be considerably more appealing to me as at least Gray has “potential” to do some things well. Even Kerry Collins, who despite plenty of bad decision making, still has a decent arm.
Also, remember, Frerotte once got a concussion as a Redskin by banging his head against the wall after a game.
