    I'm sure he won't be, but what if he turned out to just be another Osweiler? That's a lot of money to throw at a guy on so little experience.

    Wow, hardly heard of the man. I guess I'm part of the 1/3 of the male target market that has lost interest over the past 3 years.

    On balance, Jimmy G has started a total of seven games. Not as if he should be a household name.
