Since I believed he'd be a bigger bust than Dan McGwire who had five years in the league and started five games? This is -- actually -- success. "Cool."

I wish I could be a career backup and collect millions. Congrats to Ryan for staying healthy and out of trouble.

That's great for Ryan.  Hopefully he has somebody smart and looking out for his best interest handling his finances.

How long has he been in the NFL now?  I didn't think he'd last 5 years with the way he was getting bounced around, so if he gets that, he'll at least get his pension for life.

Ryan does have a single career win more than McGwire and beats him in QB rating 64.9 to 57.3 in one less year. So, sure, "Mallett seems to have ever-so-slightly bested Dan McGwire."

My error.

Pretty sure you made claims that he would never make it in the league. Looks like he's making it so far.

Ryan was in town working for out with the QBs a few weeks ago.  My son said that Austin had a great arm, Cole has a cannon, and then there's the Mallett category.  So happy Ryan is taking advantage of his opportunity.

I'm happy for Ryan.  The only problem he's ever had in the NFL that I'm aware of is when he got his feelings hurt and missed a plane when he didn't get the starting job.  I still think he'll get his chance and will do well.  Hope so.  He represented the UofA well.

This will be Mallett's 7th season in the league.

My how time flies.  Feels like yesterday he threw that pass to Cobi right before the half of the LSU game that sent us to the Sugar Bowl.

I don't recall apologizing?

Mallett's stock has done nothing but, appropriately, drop for four years (traded for a six pack of warm Pabst and cut). He is, however, a reasonable facsimile of an inaccurate and immobile Joe Flacco light(tm) so resurfacing in Baltimore made some sense.

This is, very likely, the absolute pinnacle of Mallett's NFL "career" which -- grand scheme -- does make him slightly superior to Dan McGwire. Certainly, however, not to the point I should be sorry for drawing the comparison.

IT'S PRETTY ACCURATE.

Still, good for Mallett. There's lots of guys who'd love to be a clipboard caddy for the $$$ he's raking in. He'll never again be devoid of ScanTron.

I'm happy he gets his 5th year in the NFL. There have probably been lots of guys who labored as the #2 and #3 QB for several years who no one would have thought would wind up being anything at all except being cut from the roster. Who knows when or if he gets his break and makes the most of it? You never know. But because he is a former Hog, I'm happy for him that he gets another shot. I hope he makes the most of the chance.

Well exactly how long does that go on for you? Do you hold lifetime grudges for a former Hog or is the shelf-life for your grudges limited to 5-6-7 years or what? I think Mallett may have changed a lot since he was here. He has certainly been humbled, beginning with the draft and now being on his third team. Personally, I'm pulling for the young man to succeed. I would hope that you would be as well.

Lol. I'm sure when people see Ryan Mallett the first thing they think is "yeah that dude makes the University of Arkansas look like darn."


Of course everyone here rode his jock as Elway. It's Hogville. Physically, he's about a good a quarterback specimen as they come. Some accuracy troubles, but nothing that couldn't have been tightened up had he not been a headcase/poor at handling adversity, which was his major issue.

There's quite a few former college QB's who would love be in Mallett's position.
Glad to hear he's staying in Baltimore.
Look's like he's done well, worked hard and stayed out of trouble.
He made the most out of what very well may have been his last chance and probably rehabilitated his image throughout the NFL.

Knowing from jump that Bobby Petrino was bad news and that his two wonder QB's here would follow a long line of NFL signalcaller disasters under his tutelage.

Jake Plummer was the best.

Zeke talked crap about Hunter Henry as well.


Here is some more of his great insight to how Razorbacks will transition to the NFL.


Hunter Henry = Matt Spaeth.

Comparables?  Spaeth (who put on 20 lbs post Combine) being a better blocker/size larger and Henry a tick faster (4.66 to 4.8 ) in the 40-yard.  Both possessed excellent hands in college.  I perceive a similar career path which is, essentially, long-term journeyman.  Comparisons to Jason Witten are ridiculous as -- discounting single use Combine prep -- Henry's not as athletic, doesn't get out of his breaks as well and already fought some knee issues as a Freshman.

There's nothing wrong with a decade long competent professional career but if the homerism bar is superstardom?

Ugh.

Spaeth career numbers.

9 seasons.....55 catches.....10 TDs

Henry career numbers

1 season.....36 catches......8 TDs



Oh enlightened one, please inform us no nothing rabble on which Hog will be the next mediocre one.

Probably would be more accurate than most with more snaps.  Biggest thing holding The Legend back is lack of durability.

Must be doing something right because Harbaugh is keeping him around.  That guy doesn't put up with much.  Looking at the QBs who have come and went at Houston makes one think Obrien was most of the problem for Mallett and others.

Obrien was indeed the problem in Houston. He didn't want to sign Mallett and didn't like him from the start but was overruled by his general Manager and he never gave Mallett a fair shake.

Not a perfect analogy, but older (55 and up) Baltimore (Colts) fans will remember career backup Earl Morrall and the 1968 Super Bowl season. Morrall was a first-round pick and had a couple of good early years.  By 1968 the Colts were his 5th team . After Johnny Unitas went down during preseason, Morrall led the Colts to a 13-1 season. Head coach Don Shula, the Belichik of his day, kept Morrall, a 74.1 career passer, with the Dolphins.  Without Morrall to step in for an injured Bob Griese, there may have never been an undefeated NFL team.

Ryan Mallett had a first-round arm.  He may have had free agent legs, but so does Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning. Belichick knows a bargain when he sees one.  Unfortunately for Mallett, he wound up behind the biggest bargain in the history of the NFL.  Houston and O'Brien weren't a good fit. Mallett needs time on the field, and O'Brien lacked the patience to develop him. 

When you watch professional QBs live season after season, you come to appreciate unique arm talent. You also see a lot of that talent wasted between the ears. Maybe Mallett is one of those rare talents who can't get out of his own way.  But Baltimore is a good fit for him.  Maybe he will have a season someday like Earl Morrall in 1968. Congrats to him for hanging in there.  Wishing him all the best.

Sometimes you just have to wait for your chance.  I'm not putting him in the same category as these two, but Rodgers had to sit behind Farve and Young sat behind Montana for years.  Gilding the clip board and maturing as a player and person can be a good thing.

Further evidence from yesterday's trade of Osweiler to the Browns, basically giving the guy away after one year.  Sure seems that O'Brien lacks patience with his QBs.

Sometimes you just have to wait for your chance.  I'm not putting him in the same category as these two, but Rodgers had to sit behind Farve and Young sat behind Montana for years.  Gilding the clip board and maturing as a player and person can be a good thing.

I do wish Mallett well, but until he makes it through more than a couple starts uninjured no one is going to factor him in as more than a short term emergency backup.

He makes a hell of a lot more money than I do and has a more enjoyable job.

No.

I'm just not an immense fan of how he's represented my alma mater...

...and how everyone here rode his jock as the next Elway.

What a coincidence;  I'm not a big fan as to how your represent yourself in giving opinions about others. Your comeuppance posturing on your "factual opinions" are based only on your perception of those you blast negatively. Regardless of your opinion, your self serving pompous superior attitude justifies my opinion;  you're status in life is not near as awesome as you give your self credit for.

Anyone know the terms of the contract?
1 year @ $2 million with a $1 million bonus... Imagine that should allow him to be around and possibly get "That Moment", or give him the money to get training for that ESPN gig he has surely had his eyes on. The guy has a great sense of humor and would be awesome to have as a color analyst for SEC Network one of these days...
