    Jeff Driskel at QB for next several weeks. I read that Matt Stafford has some broken bones in his back and will be out awhile.

  3. What does that make three transfers now in the NFL? Driskel, Brissett, Grier.

    Good news is we have at least that many QBs who didn’t transfer in the nfl now, oh wait ... our whole offense under Muschamp and “he who must not be named” gave me PTSD

    I always liked JD. Could throw a laser at practice, but when the lights of the game came on......

    Jeff was a Trooper. I hate the way things ended for him at UF.

    But he is currently in the NFL, so that makes 4 former Gator QBs who are on NFL rosters.
     
  12. Forgot about Cam.

    If Driskel had Mullen as a coach he would have thrived here. The coaching staff he did have was inept at offense.

    OK, this is just weird. Driskel's stats for the day:
    Passing: 27/46 269 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT - Leading Passer
    Rushing: 5 37 yards - Leading Rusher
    Receiving: 1 6 yards
    Tackles: 1 solo

    I have to wonder how many times in recent NFL history has a starting QB been the leading passer and rusher, caught a pass and recorded defensive statistics. Lions may have lost but they got their money's worth from Jeff today!

    So great probability as a college QB to make an NFL roster if you sign with UF and then transfer. 4 transfer QBs currently on NFL rosters

    You think? I mean I think he's done in Carolina, but do you not think another team desperate for a QB might give him a shot?

    Tyler Murphy had a cup of coffee in the NFL, but I think he moved to WR.
