A couple of months ago, Don Banks ranked the league’s backup quarterbacks, and I noted that six of them had significant Redskins ties — either began their careers with the team or started a significant number of games here.
With Patrick Ramsey making a brief, unremarkable appearance on national TV last night for the Broncos, we’ve gotten a chance to see five of those six guys throw at least one pass and the results have been … unremarkable, to say the least. Here are the relevant stat lines.
(The Games Played stat is inflated by the fact that Brad Johnson is the holder for the Cowboys, just to head off any potential confusion.)
All of that totals out, according to this handy QB Rating Calculator, to an uninspiring rating of 69.76.
The only remaining ex-Redskin from the original list who has not seen any notable action this season is Mark Brunell. If those stats can be taken as any kind of indicator, Saints fans should probably be hoping that Drew Brees travels everywhere in a large plastic bubble with a team of highly-trained ninja bodyguards whose only purpose is to keep him from any potential harm.
