Rudolph is ranked 15th best backup QB according to CBS sports. Jameis Winston is #1.
Nothing Rudolph has shown me makes me believe he is the QB of the future. We’ll see what he has this season, if there is a season. Its a game of roulette, and the Steelers seem to have placed all the chips on Big Ben coming back strong. If he is not the Ben of old, or if he is injured again, I see 8 or maybe 9 wins. With that good defense, if whoever the QB is plays well enough to not blow games, thats it. If we get the Ben of ten years ago I can see 11 wins.
I’m not counting on that.
With the economics of the game as they are, they wont be making a deal for a good veteran QB as long as Ben is on the roster.
It's here. Personally I do not know anyone that has it nor do any of my friends and family know of anyone that has had it. It's pretty benign here but it does exist. https://www.covid-19canada.com/graphs
Well at least one person thinks highly of Rudolph
Imagine she cheats on mason with garret lol

Winston's 1 year contract with the Saints has a $1.1 million cap hit. Incentives for playing time and playoffs make up another potential $3.5+ million in potential earnings.
I would have beaten that offer in a heartbeat. Oh well, in Mason we trust (I guess)....
Solid bargain. Maybe we didn’t have a envelope that could hold that much money?
No. Actually I only look at the pictures!
Rudolph does not have the arm strength, plain and simple... Throws loopy passes that don't have that line drive trajectory that is needed on certain throws...
Not every QB has a strong arm, But there are still good ones ( Marsha arrrggghhhh ) That compensate for this flaw with pinpoint accuracy, And Mason is far from pinpoint...
This IMO, Is why I don't think he will ever be good...The greatest QB Coach in the World can't cure these 2 decencies
I agree on his accuracy not being close to pinpoint. As far as arm strength I think that is what made him a 3rd round draft pick. The few times he does step into his throws it is on a rope but looks to me like he doesn't know where & when to place it yet. The speed of the NFL might be too much for him to overcome. He looked hesitant to throw last year to me. Knew he had a checkdown which he is pretty good at.
I live in NJ and know of no one who had or has it.
Most qb's at this level can throw darts short range. It's arm strength that allows you to throw accurate medium to long range passes. Without it, you put too much arc and add time to the delivery. Mason doesn't get the ball to the receivers in a hurry because of being unsure as well as arm strength.
His arm is strong enough. It’s the timing of his passes that’s a mess. Is he the future ? I doubt it but we will see.
Agreed, he looked good in Preseason when they were allowing him to throw the ball down the field on a regular basis and he was facing base defenses.
