    StanBack... What is he to US

    this guy is clearly a talented find but the Cowboys cut him loose after two years

    he is a QB that can flow the rock deep tuck and run bla bla bla

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=16618&draftyear=2007&genpos=qb

    @ 6'3" 21 pounds with enough straight line speed to be a return specialist he appears to have all the gifts edleman has only he is taller, stronger and faster...

    Where do we use him...?

    It is week 9 we have Nunn who i think is our 3rd WR on the practice squad and we bring up this cat

    What is BB thinking...?

    do we have a QB with QB eyes running back kick off return punts and playing WR

    Why convert him to a QB...?

    Why bring up a QB...?

    Do we need a 3rd this deep in the season or is BB calling this guy a QB for kicks...

    really question is where will he be on Sunday...?????

    I think BB is an avid reader of Sun Tzu.

    Obviously he must have done well in practice...assume as a KR/WR..

    I assume BB activated him for kick returns, but maybe he's got a trick play or two up his sleeve too--you know, Stanback lines up wide, takes a step back at the snap, Brady tosses him the ball, the defense comes up to defend, and Stanback throws to Moss wide open downfield . . . (I doubt it, but who knows).

    I'm hearing a lot of people say he's like Edelman.  I haven't seen him play but at his size I doubt he's as shifty as Edelman or Welker. It they use him as a receiver, I bet it's more to create mismatches with his big body than with shiftiness.

    I guess there's also always the possibility that one of our two QBs got dinged up in practice this week . . . (scary thought, that)

    what makes you think he is coming in as a QB? He has been playing KR/WR for the Cowboys the last 2 years...

    I think it is a good idea. Maybe Bill has employed some sort of package with him for the past few weeks. I mean perfect time to pull it out don't you think? If he gets offensive reps today and Edelman plays as well we could potentially have three players who have passing ability on the field at the same time. Not really going to look into it too much though, because I seem to remember Randy asking Bill if he could throw the ball sometime and Bill looked at him and said don't know what you were doing in Oakland, but Tom throws the ball around here. I am ok with that.

    Figure he got brought up because Tate is done. Probably see limited reps on offense, might get a shot on returns. This is unless, like I mentioned above Bill has been employing and practicing a special type of package with him.

    Once upon a time BB collected freaks of nature -- people like Ben Watson who could bench 500+ pounds and run a 4.4  Now he's busy collecting smart quarterbacks who can run fast and catch passes.  He spent all of a seventh rounder on Julian Edelman and he's happy as a clam with that choice.  Edelman has Welker's freakish lateral acceleration plus he can hit receivers moderately well, when the opponent really needs a jolt. 

    Now BB has a bigger guy, 6 foot 2, 208 pounds, 2.5 years of NFL experience so he knows his routes, may not run fast but he's a great slot and endzone receiver, standing kind of tall against those malnourished Colts cornerbacks, and he throws 70 yards downfield.  Can you imagine what happens if Moss isn't double covered 70 yards downfield every single running play?   Boom!  So that effectively removes two players from the field, and it's a 10 on 9 game.

    What if all the receivers and kickoff returners could throw laterals and occasional forward passes?  Just thinking.
