air force quarterback arion worthman leads falcons to upset victory – the denver


arion worthman’s first pass attempt saturday at colorado state was intercepted, and one play later, the rams connected on a 55-yard touchdown pass. but the junior air force quarterback didn’t flinch.in the falcons’ 45-28 upset victory at csu, worthman accounted for 181 total yards (117 rushing and 64 passing) and two scores — including a 56-yard touchdown completion to tight end ryan reffitt. worthman directed an option attack that averaged 6.1 yards per play with 30 first downs.“he was pretty solid,” air force coach troy calhoun said. “really, you look and he’s at a point now, he’s started about probably 12-14 games. i think anytime you do something you reach that point a little bit, especially when you care and he cares immensely. you start to see it continue to climb. that’s a credit to






the bears-mike glennon marriage only makes sense if ...


the bears’ marriage to quarterback mike glennoncan’t be officially consummated until thursday afternoon, if it’s going to happen at all, but rumors have it they're engaged, and so, this is looking like a ceremony without a best man.geez, what a tortured metaphor. sorry. i apologize. but i can’t connect the dots here.if the bears tell you they think glennon is their franchise quarterback, then ask them why he wasn’t the buccaneers’ franchise quarterback.because the bucs drafted an actual franchise quarterback, is the right answer. jameis winston is the right answer. that’s what a franchise quarterback looks like. even the bucs know it, in case the bears are watching.or look at it this way: it’s hard to believe a guy is a franchise quarterback after he has been benched for josh mccown.but if

souhan: hitch a ride on the vikings' quarterback carousel

why is ryan pace saying such silly things about bears quarterbacks?


wait, so now the bears might not draft a quarterback?again?for the third straight year?indeed, that’s what bears gm ryan pace said tuesday at the owners meetings in phoenix — that there’s no guarantee the bears will draft a quarterback.just like, i guess, that there’s no guarantee pace still will be gm after this season.“we’re going to draft the best players available, wherever that may be,’’ pace said. “and if it’s a quarterback, it’s a quarterback. but we’re going to take the best players available.’’for those of you scoring at home, the bears have signed two free-agent quarterbacks who haven’t completed 60 percent of their career passes. one is your starter, the other is your backup. g’night, everybody.if mike glennon and mark sanchez are the answers, then the question must be “how can

quarterback might not be a top priority in opening round of nfl draft


if anyone questions whether the nfl is a quarterback-driven league, consider that many of the worst teams are looking for one.that said, this year’s crop of quarterback prospects could have those teams saying pass, pass, pass — at least at the top of this year’s three-day draft, which starts thursday in philadelphia.“as far as the quarterbacks in this year’s class, i’m not banging the table for any of them,” said mike mayock, lead draft expert for nfl network. “i think there’s talent in the class, but i think it’s going to take a year for most of these guys.”that’s not to suggest this will be a year like 2013, when the underwhelming ej manuel was the only quarterback selected in the opening round. in fact, it would be a surprise if clemson’s deshaun watson, north carolina’s mitchell trubis






49ers qb c.j. beathard might seem unassuming, but he has a point to prove


santa clara — coming out of iowa with inconsistent game tape and next-to-no hype, quarterback c.j. beathard wasn’t supposed to be drafted until late on the third day of the 2017 nfl draft — if he was to be drafted at all.instead, the 49ers selected him in the third round, a move that shocked just about everyone outside of the niners’ front office. from there, beathard was supposed to be a humble backup quarterback, learning the system as a rookie and preparing to play only if injury struck.from there, beathard was supposed to be a humble backup quarterback for this niners team, learning the system as a rookie and preparing to play only if injury struck.instead, he’s become the starting quarterback for the 49ers, as his work on the practice field and in meetings convinced head coach kyle sh






why 49ers should not use no. 2 overall pick on a quarterback


don’t do it! don’t!that would be my friendly and unsolicited advice to the 49ers and new general manager, who seems like a smart and savvy guy. he will be making the no. 2 overall selection in the first round of the nfl draft on thursday.  lynch is playing his cards close to the vest. he’s not giving up his strategy and he shouldn’t.  but the other day, he told reporters not to rule out the 49ers taking a quarterback with that selection.except, well, lynch should rule it out. he should not even consider it.  he should flee from the idea the way bill belichick flees from smiling.granted, with the evacuation of colin kaepernick, the 49ers do need a quarterback. that is, unless you believe brian hoyer is a future hall of famer.  (with apologies to hoyer and his family, i don’t.)also, assuming

spring flings: 6 intriguing quarterback competitions


college football teams can be divided into two groups during the spring: those with quarterback competitions and those without.






colorado's steven montez believes he's the "best, baddest dude on the field"


boulder — is the rise for real? or was colorado football a one-hit wonder? it’s all on the shoulders of quarterback steven montez now. but think he’s worried? think again.“i feel like quarterback is one of those rare positions in football where you have to think you are the best, baddest dude on the field at all times. that’s how i look at the game and that’s how i play the game,” montez told me. “you almost have to venture into cocky to go out there and perform extremely well as a quarterback.”the best reason to believe the buffaloes won’t fall out of the national rankings and back to earth could be found friday, standing on the cu practice field. if all success in college football begins with a big-time quarterback, then montez (6-foot-5 and 225 pounds) certainly looks the part. after wi

scoggins: gophers' qb platoon plan looks like a bad sign


the gophers open the season in less than two weeks, and the identity of their starting quarterback remains a mystery. sort of.p.j. fleck elected to announce demry croft and conor rhoda as co-starters, whatever that means, since only one of them can play at a time, unless fleck is thinking two time zones outside the box.fleck didn’t disclose which one will actually start against buffalo on aug. 31. or how his rotation will look in terms of playing time.“this is not a controversy,” fleck said.it’s not ideal, either. quarterback platoons often become clunky and disruptive, a guessing game about who plays when and how much and the right time to make a switch.fleck is correct that his arrangement isn’t a controversy because neither quarterback has proved himself yet. so neither has staked a cla






michigan unveils uniforms but not roster

matt cassell, former usc quarterback, will have surgery on thumb


tennessee backup quarterback matt cassel will have surgery to put a pin in his right thumb after being hurt during the titans’ offseason program. cassel, 35, who played at chatsworth high and usc, suffered the injury to his throwing hand tuesday during the titans’ closed organized team activity session.coach mike mularkey said cassel probably will be out about six weeks but “should be ready to go for training camp.” the titans re-signed cassel this offseason to a two-year deal. he was expected to run the first-team offense while starter marcus mariota continues recovering from a broken right leg hurt dec. 24 in a loss at jacksonville. mularkey said the titans will not immediately be looking to add a quarterback. for now, they will rely on third-string quarterback alex tanney, who has been

mitchell trubisky could be first qb drafted despite relative inexperience


mitchell trubisky has faced one question more than any other since he declared for the nfl draft. every team interested in the north carolina quarterback wants an explanation.if he's truly worthy of being the first quarterback selected on april 27, why was he behind marquise williams on the tar heels' depth chart for two seasons, ascending to the starting role in 2016 only after williams' departure?the answer doesn't necessarily define trubisky, who bloomed just in time to establish himself near the top of this year's quarterback class. but it's central to the puzzle quarterback-needy teams such as the bears continue to piece together as the draft approaches.on march 21, it finally was the decision-maker's turn to answer. north carolina coach larry fedora explained it had everything to do






49ers free agency has a busy (and questionable) start


pay no attention to the quarterback behind the curtain.in fact, pay minimal attention to the quarterback position, period.here’s the blunt situation that followers of the 49ers must grasp: at this point in the team’s reconstruction, with so much heavy lifting to do, it doesn’t matter who the quarterback is.all right, so it matters some. but the point is, whichever human being lines up at quarterback in the 2017 season for the scarlet heroes of yore, he and the team are going to lose many games. mediocrity will be the baseline goal.thus, as the 49ers plow through this free agent period and the draft, it’s far more important what happens with the rest of the roster around the quarterback. those players will be the foundation for when/if the team becomes a playoff contender again in a few yea






joe montana compares colin kaepernick's quarterback skills to tim tebow's


hall of fame quarterback joe montana was asked tuesday whether he thought former san francisco 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick would land on an nfl roster by the time the 2017 season starts.in giving his answer, montana brought up another former nfl quarterback, tim tebow.translation: kaepernick’s nfl future might not be too bright, as far as montana is concerned.“i’m not sure. i think there’s an injury somewhere he probably gets in,” the 49ers legend told the sporting news of kaepernick. “in most cases, you look at tim tebow — a great guy and everybody was talking about him. but what it comes down to is 40% completion or even in the low 50s — you can’t win in the league with that. you won’t be in the league very long. it comes down to his play as much as anything.”tebow was 8-6 as a st

quarterback prospects address their red flags on combine media day


deshone kizer apparently aced his first formal team interview at the nfl scouting combine. the notre dame quarterback "blew the doors off" his sit-down with the 49ers on wednesday night , new general manager john lynch said. and, as it turns out, he wasn't lobbed a bunch of softballs.three months removed from notre dame's rocky season, in which kizer's play was an unworthy encore of his promising 2015, he understands the issues that dog him entering the nfl draft as a member of an unconvincing class of quarterbacks.quarterback-needy teams such as the bears want to know how kizer, with his 6-foot-4 frame, live arm and football savvy, could have led the fighting irish to a 4-8 record."i've answered that question as truthfully as i possibly can," kizer said friday, reflecting on his interview






5 secrets of long distance relationships


as they say about a long distance relationship, that a smooth and healthy relationship can prove to be a blissful whereas a suffocating one can lead to intoxication for freedom. living away from your partner is hard. but maintaining the relationship even while being miles apart is even more stressful. the lack of presence, inability to meet, absence of a face-to-face conver ion and not being able to have physical intimacy can have saddening effect on both the partners.but all these issues are quite common, if the bond between the two is absolutely true. instead of being apprehended, you should prepare for a healthy environment. if you guys, genuinely and deeply love each other than nothing, absolutely nothing can break you apart.if you’re going to be in a long distance affair or you alread
