I'm Grant bluffing.
Let's a sport zone.
Welcome back to another sport, Castor.
And I won't make this quick SportsCastr stream about something.
This man right here, Blake Bortles what he said yesterday.
And this is what I was doing my opinions on it because, of course not going told reporters.
Oh, being for me here on SportsCastr, you already know that's always going snow time.
This will be maybe 10 15 minutes.
And I was quickly want to give my opinions on this.
Okay, So yesterday, Bortles said to the media, he wants to quote unquote state patient and wait for the right opportunity you got on the field.
This is a good strategy, but it's also bad tragedy.
Here's what is what the good has to come with.
It wants to pretty much, you know, he knows the TJ go after him, no matter what Madden says.
Lawrence is the best free agent quarterback out there right now, and no man has Josh McCown a higher rating.
But Bortles is clearly the better quarterback out to younger, faster, more reliable.
Made the playoffs more recently.
I mean, come on, it's not rocket side.
Say boards about Josh McCown at this point.
And so basically, what he's saying is that Hey, I know one quarterbacks going to go down, whether it's gonna be early on the year or, you know, we're just gonna be out for the rest of season by like we Ken.
Hey, I can maybe step in when this team a couple of games, you're gonna make a name for myself and, you know, cast A in that conversation, as when the best back.
It's not even maybe even a starting quarterback again, depending on how well he really does Flight, I wouldn't be against that, either.
So we're fortunate in.
But, you know, I I honestly would say this will work.
And I like his approach to this saying that because, you know, last year it seemed pretty upset.
Force was just throwing last year out.
The fact that I signed with the Los Angeles Rams was a horrible idea.
I think we can all agree on that.
We knew Jared Goff is not injury prone.
We knew Derek I was going to struggle, but we knew Bortles was going to play that much and he didn't you saw last year The rats got destroyed, got humiliated even in two games.
Uh, game against the Ravens and Week 15 against the Cowboys.
The grants awesome schemes by, like, 30 and Borders didn't even play.
They kept golfing.
Just toe make a satellite even or somehow absolutely ridiculous.
Really? That you know, you man one of the best backups in the league last year, Gaza Hang in the last year, he was the best accurately course that changed over time, but yeah, take a look at it this way.
Because, you know, if you have the like, if you run the Rams shoes and you're like, Man, we just had this guy, you know, just two years ago made the A F C championship game.
Then obviously, we're paying Jared Goff all this money.
Yes, he's going to be the starter.
But forget blow now.
Nothing midway through the third quarter.
You think we will put this guy in? We think you ask a trade value.
Why don't they plan? I have no idea.
Thank. See out your opportunity.
And then, you know, it was weird because last week shot MCB a mentioned that he was surprised.
No team signed borders yet, which is obviously pretty like What the heck? I know boys in the best course record lead, but he's one of the best backup.
Still, maybe not the best but one of the best.
Still so surprising have been picked up yet.
You see, case Keenum going toe Brown's marks.
Mario, go to the Raiders.
James was going to the States for it was right there with all those guys right there is with all these guys.
And we keep on seeing guys like Trevor seven Yin and Brendan Allen.
And now the other day I will.
Letta, we're seeing all these guy like even third string fortunate Corvettes, this point gang sign for Borders.
And I'm like at first I thought like, Oh, my goodness, portals either opted out or, you know, he asked Kobe.
But like, no one's expressed it to the media.
Or, you know, something along the lines that I I knew something was up.
I wasn't sure exactly what, but I'm like that there is no way.
Yes either have like Kobe.
He's gotta be demanding for way too much money.
I was thinking all these things.
I was a good day fever tired, but he just hasn't came out to the media and said it yet.
But now this is definitely good to hear saying about retired.
I'm not really going anywhere yet.
Just wanted, you know, Wait, wait for a quarterback to get injured away for correct, really play horrible and then we just take it from there.
Hopefully, they give me a call, sign with them and then just try to prove my dad wrong to that point.
That's all boards was trying to do.
I think he knows he's not making the whole aim or anything like that would be crazy if you did.
But I think that's free at the question at this point.
So you know, at this point I got do just lasted only for as long as you can and you know, pretty much just piggyback.
Best starting job, you know, can't revive your career will because honestly, with a bunch of terrible Jaguar teams was good.
Yeah, I think he was Jason.
Ah, lot trouble.
Jaguars baby was decent there.
What would a year with being coached by Chamakh Baidu? That would only I think, reminding it that would only improve.
It would only improve your game by a lot, even Jerrick off.
Great. He's better.
Bortles, that's for sure.
And overall, it's a decent start.
Is still, I think, mid, You know, the mid Packer starters.
He's a good guy.
I learned after as well, so yeah, and it just didn't make such a lines ever go after Chase Daniels.
I was like, That's like, Who are these guys? I do know Checked Angle's is course playing the Bears for a little bit last year, But it's like, Where are these? Like, Why are you signing guys like Trevor Siemian and all this guy's like, Why you doing that? You know, cause really even heading into, you know, this is Ah, back up stack year.
If that makes sense, of course.
A Dalton on the Cowboys.
Joe Flacco on the Jets, Nearly two backups at the beginning of the offices.
And I could argue that brought the borders playing.
You know, Winston, Mario taking of all these guys fulls of Robiskie.
You everyone start there.
They're gonna have freakin backup. Chicago.
It's kind of like, wow, you do next, the actual for the thumbs up and then, you know, it's it's just interesting, because it's like, Well, this is such a backup heavy class league now with like a bunch of stars that were a good couple years going a lot of guys a fight back, first time job, but felt like Borders was doing that last year, I said.
Since Day one, Border says, signed with the Jets.
And especially when Sam Donald got injured after Week one.
That was the way to go, because obviously, Trevor Siemian was not great.
Name a couple times, site tightened signing a couple weeks ago.
Not bad play, all right, the Broncos for a couple years, but overall, he's anything special.
Now, of course, when he got injured, you have Luke fault.
You know, he was a second year player.
You know what? We're going to get him.
You plead two or three games, lost them all, Whatever, what's expected there.
But you even noticed how even a team like the Lions like when Nazis Stafford got hurt.
They just rolled with David Blough.
Then even watching it was like, Yeah, I think that's because why, I think that's because effort got injured after the trade deadline.
But anyway, you would expect you don't teams to go after this guy.
Of course, the Buccaneers James one sees too much return over Blaine Gabbert or back up.
I don't think the ball is definitely bad. Yeah, Bernanke.
What to say there? It's very interesting the way how it turned down.
I think for boroughs.
Just guys got hurt, but it was at the wrong time.
I know Matt Ryan was out for a couple weeks, A swell.
So all these guys were getting injured, but it was like a week or two half to the trade deadline.
It does to be able, man, because, you know, I guarantee you if Matthew Stafford got hurt, it was up trade that like they would go after Borders.
Because let's be real.
Jeff Driskel, former bangle.
And then David Plow actually played okay, Even that is a really good He's one of the your stack up QB's, if not one of the better third strings, actually.
But, you know, a lot of people are saying ********s got some of the teams like a quarter Q.
B will be on the practice squad.
No, you wouldn't be, especially if you re signed with the Rams.
He definitely wouldn't be on the practice.
What they released Josh Love.
And let's be real John Walford.
No, he's figure opportunity, and I just It doesn't make sense.
A lot of people are saying always gonna reset with ramps unless golf gets hurt that mortals will probably sound with the Rams a day or two after my injury, fellas got gets hurt.
Honestly, I think he's going to Minnesota one because her cousin is just such a lime out.
Did you have any said the UN days, Like all, If I die, I die.
I just want to play football, you know, case.
But gold really is.
Wanna go out there, play football? I support everyone, you know they want to be safe.
They won't opt out.
But I'm out here.
What is Super Bowl? All right, What Kirk Cousins common might bite him there, so serial signed with the Vikings.
That's why, from predicting all offseason pretty much, especially since Sean Mannion za Vikings back up.
So he's not good.
He's only played one or two career games.
Former Ramez Well, yeah, it was horrible.
Thanks wild child 88 for tuning in.
So, overall, I like the idea of staying patient.
Wait until someone gets injured or away until someone's horrible ask for a contract that they will most likely sign you if they don't have a pretty dang good back up.
What? The drink or back they're gonna sign you now is a thing that I don't like about this.
What if this backfires? Because we take a look at guys a guy into less, you know, you know so much.
Ring like Matt Ryan and, like Matt Stephens.
Alert Lions, Falcons.
End of great backups.
But what if something like Drew Brees gets hurt again? Course they had tape bridge where they were fined again.
I think they'd be find this year to save Jamis. Winston.
So this this is what could come to haunt him? It's like, OK, Cam Newton gets injured.
All right? They I think they're gonna believe in still my only thing.
I pick up Borders.
They're either gonna pick up, you know, you're gonna start stadium or strips.
The worse they throughout Brian employer, the dolphins.
If Fitzpatrick or to, uh, do and yet hurt, they're gonna have Fitzpatrick.
If Tyrod Taylor struggles, they're gonna have Justin Herbert.
If Derek Carr please, better he gets until I got marks.
Mariana, you see what I'm saying? Here is just It's a good approach and I know he wants to get playing time, But at the same time, you have to be really careful that the right Q B's get injured.
You have to make sure that guys like like the Staffer Well, even though they might even start chasing riches.
I really ridiculous pesticides.
You have to take a one.
Could teams like the Eagles, the Falcons? No, no make Maybe the Giants you got? Take a look at those teams.
Like a thing you're Jones gets her news out for a few weeks.
I honestly think that well, in the Giants game, Absolutely.
I think you played pretty well with Darius late and Golden Tate.
But us, besides support, that's really only negative.
I have just I like this approach, but you've got to make sure that you're right.
You just got stay patient.
You can't wait for the right move.
If you really don't want to be a backup.
You see this? Why I say Yes, I'm a team.
Don't be afraid.
You know what I say.
Sign with the team.
Sounded like a team like the Vikings or whenever.
Although Kirk Cousins probably won't get hurt.
You south of the team like the Vikings, Then once you see a starting quarterback go down, you'll demand a trade request to that team.
I know it's obviously more complicated than that, but that's something I would do in service.
Just be a free agent until you know someone gets injured or, you know, please, really bad.
It's like, Well, you could be on a team.
You could still improve.
I know it's I Shauna tweeted still doing like throwing, you know, emotions.
He's still doing like, weekly practices.
But, you know, you just wanna I don't know.
How do I explain this? You just want to, you know, be on a team and then once you see starting, quarterback it down, What you see team really starting to struggle.
That's when you can ask for, like a Hey, listen, I know if I'm a Minnesota ****ysts and I know Kirk Cousins is the guy you just gave a two year deal in the offseason.
See, if you betrayed me to this team for something, I feel like I could be a make attribute there.
I could be no trade of the Eagles when Carson wants a cell for two or three weeks with a broken back, I don't know, but that's just a little example for you.
It's like, Why would you be a free agent? You can actually be on the team.
Worse comes to worse.
At least make some money, you know, instead of just trying to roll the dice and pretty much be playing NFL's version of Russian roulette in just because I have the hours with you, Bortles doesn't get signed this year.
It was a good show. You retires.
So obviously for May.
I don't want that to happen.
I wanted to revive his career, possibly something the team are doing, and I really prove that Oh, hey, despite you know not being the best quarterback ever, especially being drafted third overall, you can at least you know, still be a capable guy.
Cannot stay in this week until his mid 30 years.
What? I mean Oh, no, we'll see a small child, a Well, not just Metal Ranch here about Bortles.
Plan for tests in 2020 21 NFL season.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments.
I don't know what to tell you guys.
I mean, it's a smart approach, but it's also a very risky one.
It's like OK for back.
It's injured out assassins to sign there, but then they could back up.
They probably are gonna sign you.
Who knows what's gonna happen, but yeah, NFL starting next Thursday, Texans and cheese on a I mean the I mean, the Chiefs and the Texans have pretty bad back up.
So maybe we could see Borders.
Simon, one of those two teams that homes are watching goes down yet you never know.
Yeah, I guess, I guess.
Future will tell on that.
Anyway, I'm grand flow from pleasure sports.
They enjoy the rest of the afternoon.
I am camping this weekend, so I'll try.
Especially since there's three game sevens for the HL playoffs.
I always try to go on for one of them.
Will see, uh, probably won't be the floor game or probably be the third period, but listen as long as I could Go on and happy.
Right? Hope you guys enjoy it into found.
See him until next Monday.
Enjoy your week ending as just be talked about what mortals planned this for 2020 and I would think you'd come back fit.
And also, I think you could potentially and his career.
Maybe we'll touch on this topping against soon.
Who knows Anyone? Graph off.
Plus the sports on saying join the rest of your day, everybody.
