    Fattford out with a broken back, so Jeffy Driskel is currently playing for Detroit. Who would have believed he would be starting an NFL game after getting cut by the Bengals?

    Discuss.

      This is truly unbelievable. Honestly if you can quickly learn a playbook and have a pulse, being the backup QB to good QB in the NFL where you are never going to play unless there is injury has got to be one of the sweetest gigs going.

        He's starting at Chicago, one of the toughest places to play. So far he's 12/17 for 84 yards.

          Chicago and especially their defense is trash this year. He may actually play well.

          Who was the guy who played a night game a few years ago in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers. put up like 900 yards, parlayed that into a big contract with a huge signing bonus, only to never be heard from again? all that will happen to Driskel minus the big contract with the huge signing bonus!

          6-7 at the half. Wonder if he's been Driskeling?

            He's not a good backup. Why he'd be in the league, I don't know. But then I think of the backups we have had for the jags. He's better than them.

              Matt Flynn. He got signed by the Seahawks then beat out for the starting job by then-rookie Russell Wilson.

              As a Lions fan I dont know what's worse, a pu55y dawg as your qb or Driskel. He is playing ok for a team w zero running game.

                Driskel will lead the Lions to the playoffs - he just needed this game to get back in his groove.

                  Every one who earns a degree from U F is a Gator until they disavow the school. Jeff hasn't, so he is.

                      I only started the damn thread to trigger Swonkey. I figured you of all people would get that.

                      You have disappointed me.
