I had this posted in reply to the Drew Bree's (sic) thread, but it got canned as I was replying. If this is also inappropriate, which I don't think it is, can it too!

I only got to watch the Dallas game on television this preseason (sigh), so I really don't know much about him. Aside from the so-so to okay numbers, how did he look?

Preseason Statistics: 30 of 45 passing, 316 yards passing, 66.7% completion rate.

One touchdown, three interceptions, 66.5% passer rating.

Well, didn't he beat us last year? I think some guys are not good enough to start, and spend their careers as back-ups. The consumate bench warmer and traveling hired hand. How would I feel? NOT comfortable, but better than if we still had Bouman. That guy screws up so much he had the screw up look on his face as he came on to the field.

As a backup, completely happy. He looked smart and controlled in pre-season, and I think he could step in immediately if he had to and run the offense without missing a beat. He's not Drew Brees, but he's OK. Jamie Martin was another good off-season signing. I hope we never need him.

I am actually fairly comfortable with him as a backup. He is alot like Brees, just not quite as good. I think he is a most competent backup who if he were to fill in, would win some games.

Im not very comfrtable with him at all. 3 of our wins have been one score margins. I think Brees has a lot to do with those being W's instead of L's. I think with JM we would be lucky to play .500.

My intention is not so much to rip on JM, but rather the emphasize the qualities and importance of DB

I am pretty comfortable with him,he comes from a Rams team that knows how to put up big points.I think that we would have to change our plans a little.He would have to try some shots down the field(to keep the defense honest,because they will be blitzing him).With a guy like Colston to throw the ball to on third,and usually looking at 2nd and 5 and 3rd and short he would probably due pretty well.I don't think he is the type of guy that is gonna make alot of mistakes.

I agree

I agree! He played great in pre-season. He actually played better than Brees did during pre-season. This O doesn't require the qb to be a great athlete. I think Martin fits our O perfectly. Payton will not ask Martin to do things he can't do, like the Rams were doing. Quick reads and get rid of the ball...TD!

Let me just say this, if Drew went down Sunday, and Jamie Martin was the QB for the rest of the year, I don't think he would lead us to the playoffs.

A key look at Martin is what he did in St. Louis last year when he started 5 games in relief of Bulger. 124/177 for a 70% completion average, 5 TDs/7 Ints. 83.5 QB Rating

Aside from the TD to Int ratio, he did fairly well. I think that BU QBs often get a bad rap because they have to come in mid-game after only getting a few reps during the week and do not perform all that well. What is telling about a BU, IMHO, is how he does when he is given the ball as a starter for a few games.

With Payton's type of O, I think he will do well should we lose Brees for any extended time.

I am comfortable knowing that Coach Payton will gameplan and cater to his strengths--so yes, I think this team can still win ball games with Martin.

He's the run of the mill back-up who just needs to manage the game and not make too many mistakes which will hurt the team; I think Payton will make sure that he's effective in that regard.
