Great to see Travis back from what many feared could be a career-ending injury -- looks like seven QBs may not be needed. But does his big day portend of heavy storms ahead for a thin defensive backfield? Stay tuned....

Not sure I would use the term "shined" when referring to 11 or 21 passing in a scrimmage, but I do hope Travis' ailment is behind him and he has a healthy season.


CFiT, it's a scrimmage. It's all situational work and fragmented, much different than game scenarios. Some plays are basically go for broke situations, while others are goal line plays where the defense basically knows what's coming and has better chances to react. I wasn't at the scrimmage, so I didn't see every pass, but the passes in the videos from it looked cleaner than the average passes he threw last year (when he was still healthy), and numbers alone can't be trusted in judging how a guy performs in a scrimmage.

Glad to see Wilson healthy. Wilson should be a serviceable backup to whoever wins the start with stats like 11 of 21.
