    If Gabbert paid his own salary, there would still be a financial incentive to dump him. He’s taking up space, couldn’t beat out Chad Henne and is only of use should all QBs on the roster be unable to play. He’s a complete bust.

    If a team takes third round talent in round one(Gabbert) and then the player doesn’t live up to round one expectations, is it fair to call the payer a bust if his third round talent didn’t produce can’t miss first round results? Bust label should be brad nailed to the forehead of the GM and front office that drafted well above his talent level warranted.

    After watching that performance, Jacoby Jones shouldn’t quit his day job…
