I take it you believe Flutie is not an option at qb?


This shit is still funny.


I always assumed he'd never see time at QB but once in a while someone (usually on TOS) mentions him as being a possible option at the position, so curious whether it really was just a favor to Doug or whether the kid has given the staff any indication of being able to be a backup at the position.

My sarcastic comment wasn't directed at your post, but the people that will inevitably run with it. I don't doubt that they gave Flutie a legit shot at QB given the lack of depth at the position. I just don't think, if he is as good an athlete as advertised, he will stay there. I also think it will take something strange or serious injury to supplant Wade, so his playing time at QB for the next 3 years is severely impeded.

If we could find a transfer WR who is fast and can catch, I for one would really appreciate it.

I really don't want to see the same crew out there again next year. Move Crimmins to the Bordner role from this year and then figure out the other spots.

I defended Callahan for a while, but he couldn't get open against D1 level DBs to save his life. The only reason he looks good in practice is that he's playing against our DBs.

I suppose Swigert and Jackson could fix this issue.

I recall Swigert having pretty good hands. His return would be a welcome addition and I hope teams won't put 9 in the box with Swigert on the field.

He does, and he had a really good first two years, better than Amidon, IMHO. Hopefully, the young receivers will be a lot better with another year of experience, but in the end, we need a QB that can consistently get the ball to them.

Everett Golson would be eligible for a fifth year correct?

He would be awfully intriguing

Wade throws a good ball from what I've seen.
Swigert's a good target but Wade will need a couple options if our passing game is going to be successful.

Swigert by himself is better than anything currently, I think. Are our TEs any good at catching the ball or are they just blockers that are slow-ish and stonehands-ish? I remember last yr's offense, our TEs were slow as hell, but when Rettig got them the ball, they did better at catching it then this yr's crop.

Swigert hasn't played in 2 calendar years and has had his knee blown up on multiple occasions. there was thought that he could return this year, but his knee is still in such bad shape that he couldn't make it on the field. If we are relying on him to be our number 1 receiver and go to guy next year, then we will are in deep Sh^t.

Some might argue that Swigert was BC's best receiver this year, when you take into consideration that he didn't have any drops.

Swigert had very good hands and so-so speed before his serious knee injuries, he's got to be slower after the injuries. I really wish he'd hang up his cleats and avoid risking more injuries

Actually it was only once....Granted it was a fucking major once but it was only once.
The multiple surgeries / setbacks were due to a recurring infection which was not resolved until April 2014.

Look there is really no type of injury to compare this to (as far as rehab timing) & there were some early thoughts that he may have been back for this season.
Luckily his Doctor was the smartest man in the room & never released him for any contact due to the risks, so he did not play this season.
It has been mentioned to think of the timing required to be similar to an ACL with the start date as the last surgery of April 2014 so spring ball looks to be just about right.

As mentioned on another thread, he is currently running very well and it looks like he will be back for next season.
When he is fully cleared by Doc to participate in Full contact (looks like spring ball) we will all know what to expect.

FWIW: BC must have confidence in a return as they had to petition for the 6th year before Billy could even apply for it, which the NCAA has granted.

It started with the 2010 Syracuse where Andre Williams went wild.

Don't remember who the announcer was but "Billy" Swigert returned the opening kickoff to the 28 Yd line. Both announcers kept calling him Billy thruout the entire 1st half so assume it was on the roster they were using. (was prolly Vinny's fault) :D My sister got pissed & actually called ESPN. Apparently she got thru to someone as they switched to calling him Bobby after half time. This place just rolled with it from there.

Also don't know if it was the same announcer(s) but during the 2011 season's opener against UMASS, the announcer says: "Nice catch by Robby Swigert." I should have recorded my sister's reaction.
