Sat, 16 Mar 2002 00:41:35 -0800

According to the Washington Times, free agent QB Jeff Blake (Saints) passed a physical Friday for the Washington Redskins.

If I get the chance to coach him, I look forward to it." The big questions remaining now are is Blake's price right for the Redskins? and does Blake want to play for Washington? With Washington, Blake would have to beat out Danny Wuerffel, another Spurrier protege, and youngsters Dameyune Craig and Sage Rosenfels. Blake's response, "Who am I competing against?"

Panthers | What To Do At QB?

Wed, 14 Mar 2001 08:52:04 -0800

Darin Gantt reports for the Rock Hill Herald it appears Carolina Panthers coach George Seifert reportedly informed QB Jeff Lewis he'd enter training camp as the team's starting QB. Seifert reportedly also told Dameyune Craig he'll be the No. 2 QB, and that there were no plans at this time to bring in another QB. It's a rather surprising move considering neither QB has ever started an NFL game and between them they have combined for just 54 career passing attempts, all by Lewis. The team's candidates for a potential veteran QB has dropped and the Panthers haven't made contact with any of the other QBs, including Baltimore Ravens free agent QBs Trent Dilfer and Tony Banks. There is also no movement on the Steve Beuerlein trade front. The Panthers have one other QB on the roster, Matt Lytle, who spent the 2000 season on the Panthers practice squad after a brief stay with Seattle. The Panthers could still select a QB in the upcoming NFL draft.

The Gaston Gazette reports police identified the fan who ran out on field in the fourth quarter as Michael Larry Deeb, 20, of Charlotte. Police said early today that he likely will be charged with second degree trespassing. Third-team QB Dameyune Craig played again as a backup running back. He had one carry for six yards to give the Panthers a first down. The Charlotte Observer reports coach George Seifert stated a big key to last night's victory was the much-maligned offensive line who had great push on many running plays, helping lead Brad Hoover to a 100-yard night and giving Steve Beuerlein enough time to throw three TD passes.
