I really think it's too soon to draw a conclusion on the guy where we are concerned. Again a reminder of how views changed on Kurt Warner between the time we acquired him and the time he left.

    CK doesn't fit what BA is looking for in a QB. He fits a lot better in Seattle running that read option. Gabbert actually fits what BA is looking for in a QB. Now the question is can BA fix him, and does Gabbert show enough in preseason to warrant keeping him. He has more up side than Stanton. Plus the fact he is 5 or 6 years younger.

    I'm not a Mark Sanchez guy, but he played for a QB killer in Ryan for far too long. Any potential he had was scarred.

    However the second he got out of that hole in 2014 he performed pretty well. 64% and 88.4 in relief duty is decent. He increased his completion percentage by 10% and his average per attempt almost 1.5 yards. And that's AFTER 4 years in NY. Talent matters, but so does location. If you took those numbers into 2016 and projected for the year he would have been 15th in completion, 5th in Y/A, and 19th in rating. Average starter. Any one of his years in NY was bottom of the barrel.

    Obviously the Denver HC thought he was terrible. So there's that.

    Some QBs can't recover from horrible coaches. Some can. I'm hoping Gabbert can.

    No doubt, he's much better than a number of starting QBs. He's been absolutely smeared.

    Having said that perhaps his ask (as far as money goes) is playing a large part in him remaining unsigned? I mean Joe Mixon got drafted, and Lary Fitzgerald has been allowed to achieve an HOF career ...
    No more Snyder.

    It still amazes me that many on this board are still fretting over a QB that will get signed before the season starts. Just not signed by the Cardinals.

    There is low risk financially and in the local and national fan base signing Gabbert, who also happens to fit the mold for BA's offense. He signed for just a few hundred thousand over what any other bottom contract would be.

    The risk for Kaep is large in money to sign and potential locker room and fan base issues and negative attention. Plus our Oline, our receivers and our TEs are not the players you want for a scrambling QB who could never transition to being a pocket passer.

    Again.....even given what you point out here, "no risk it no biscuit" according to BA. As for the scrambling QB argument, I think our receivers as well as our RB's would benefit from a QB who has the ability to extend plays which is really what we're talking about on the subject. Carson Palmer had a better OL last season than Wilson did yet they dethroned us as division champs. Furthermore the ability for a QB to work out of the pocket depends largely on the line in front of him. I'm just not sold on the "he doesn't fit" rationale regarding CK as a QB. What doesn't fit is his controversial protest.
