On behalf of rcade's safety, I'm visualizing Hurricane Ian as a long pass being thrown by Carson Wentz.

That way, if Wentz was aiming at Jacksonville, the ball would actually go to Governor DeSantis in Tallahassee.

At least Wentz can throw a ball more than 5 yards.

If that pass was thrown by JimmyG it would either hit the turf well short of Jacksonville or end up being caught by a defender nowhere near the target area.

Wentz has an excuse: he is behind the worst O line in the NFL on a poor team and often decides shortly after the 7th sack he just needs to heave the ball and hope.

JimmyG is surrounded by pro-bowlers and rarely gets touched yet cannot hit a crossing route 8 yards down field directly in front of him when his receiver is wide open. Five or 6 times per game.

I didn't have the intestinal fortitude to watch the film of that Niners game.

Jimmy was more or less worth what they paid him last year and is more or less worth what they're paying him this year. Unless he's viewed strictly as a backup to Trey Lance, in which case, he's the highest paid QB2 in the league.

Since they both left the Patriots roster, Jacoby Brissett has gradually gotten better at playing the QB position professionally, and Jimmy G has gotten progressively worse.
