JP Losman impresses scouts at Clemson Pro day

Recommended Posts

If they did not just want him as a camp arm he should have gone for it.  Get paid to work out in summer with red jersey on, have an opportunity to show a NFL team his ability to coach and if fortunate make some team as #3 QB.

...in all seriousness, good to see the kid doing something within the game despite his Bflo trials and tribulations.....what the hell is there to hate?.....was Jordan Palmer a prolific NFL QB?...obviously NOPE....yet he has become a qualified and respected QB teacher.........think I read he "knows" our Josh......

Exactly.  I wonder if he'll change his mind.  He has nothing to lose.  My guesses are Raiders, Dolphins, Giants or Ravens. All need backups.

Best bet is for him to sign late in preseason games when a QB is cut/injured.  He'd make a good scout team QB.

...doubtful...probably comfortable doing what he's doing.....as is Palmer being a sought after teacher versus the rigors of being a QB Coach......success to both IMO..:thumbsup:

Why not? Sometimes things click after sitting back and studying the game (happened to Allen last year). 

 

Actually, I felt that he had promise. His 2006 season second half was very decent and then the 2007 season was derailed by a dirty hit by Vince Wilfork. He kinda lost his starting job to Edwards because of injury. Even when he spelled Captain Checkdown Edwards, he was quite decent. He may have been the last Bills QB to throw for 300 yards in multiple games.

Who was the journeyman quarterback still in the league today that followed Edwards as starter?

Losman was a bust, but there were some very nice JP to Lee Evans plays within that time.

What NFL team would sign him? He's 38 and hasn't played in how long? Some of these NFL coaches are dumb

I was there for opening day 2005, JP's first start and we absolutely destroyed the Texans.  The defense was teeing off on Carr the entire game.  The Ralph was rocking.  Beautiful, sunny Fall day in Orchard Park.  He ran off the field to chants of  "JP! JP! JP!"

 

It was all down hill from there...

I think some NFL team official was kidding around & Schefter was the only person in attendance to take it seriously.  If you think about it, many of Schefter's recent missteps could be explained by an inability to detect wit or sarcasm, as in "Tyree Jackson has a stronger arm than Josh Allen? Yeah, right."  

Pretty sad to witness the decline of a once reliable source.

Deja Vu.

 

I'll never forget our DB's in training camp talking about how Losman was "shredding" the defense during camp. Got me excited about our chances..........👎

 

For me, it was popping in NFL2K5 and unleashing Losman on the Patriots.  On the first offensive play, Losman juked Wilfork and Bruschi (among others) for a 40 yard gain. Watching #7 race down the field, I thought we might have found our own Elway.

 

But then...

A total dirtbag move, and I can't believe he became President of the NFLPA.

I vividly remember the play at 6:57 in the video below. I remember that whole game, actually. Two 83-yard bomb TDs to #83 that day. And then the Bills drove down the field at the end with time winding down, needing a touchdown to win. With the clock under 20 seconds and the Bills out of timeouts, Losman threw that absolute LASER across the middle to Peerless Price 2.0, whose toe-dragging TD reception on that play was the last great play of his career. No matter what we all say about Losman now, that is still one of the best throws I can ever remember seeing in a clutch moment for the Bills.

Yup I remember that game too, those bombs and that Price throw were amazing.  Funny, if you watch this video you would think Losman had a pretty good career, he made some great throws and had a ton of arm talent.  I actually thought his highlight video was only gonna be like 2 min ha.  

 

Makes you wonder if he could have had a better career had he been drafted by a better organization.  As much as we all make fun of him, he certainly had some arm talent.  He just never mentally progressed and wonder if had better coaching if he might have developed more than he did.

Throwing well and being able to play on the NFL are two completely different things. He is still a wuss and would panic like a deer in the headlights. 

 

People never grow out of being mentally weak.

Good point.

Doug Whaley once commented on there being three aspects to team building: Drafting well, developing the players, and retaining the players. For years and years, the Bills were bad at all three. But their being bad at drafting was exacerbated by the fact that even when they DID occasionally have draft hits, they either failed to develop them, failed to retain them, or both. In Losman's case, I think the Bills failed him in the "develop him" phase. Of course, it's possible that he was just going to bust no matter what, but who knows?

I like that Beane and McDermott not only seem to be drafting well so far, but also seem to have plans in place for development (Foster, Wallace, White, Milano) and retention.
