    Losman goes to UFL

    LOS ANGELES -- Forced to choose between being an NFL backup or a starter in a fledgling league, J.P. Losman has taken playing time.
    Losman, 28, said Tuesday night he has signed with the Las Vegas entry of the start-up United Football League, where he will be coached by former Giants boss Jim Fassel. He immediately becomes the league's marquee player, a former first round pick who was Buffalo's starting quarterback 33 times over the past four seasons.

    I wonder if I can still count his stats for fantasy....

    Well, if he's got one thing going for him - the USFL didn't kill Steve Young's career, and the XFL certainly didn't kill Tommy Maddox's career...

    Agreed. Don't get hit in practice, tote a clipboard, and bide your time until the starter screws up or gets hurt. Not to mention you're getting paid well to do this.

    Let's also not forget, when the starter is doing bad, you're the most popular guy on the team.

    Re: Losman goes to UFL

    If he wanted PT there wasn't a better team that he could be the back-up for. Trent Edwards was bound to sit out at least 4-5 games a year, but when Losman went in he didn't show anything.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Losman goes to UFL

    Looks like another former NFL QB to give it a shot

    Look for former Vikings quarterback Brooks Bollinger, who lives in Eagan, to accept a tryout invitation from Orlando in the upstart United Football League.
