It's hard to picture Adam Weber playing in the NFL.

Poor guy...a whole $550/month for insurance (temporarily) after making $400k + last year. Forgive me for not shedding a tear.

Weber turning heads? He did that the whole time he was QB at MN. The fans had to turn their heads to projectile vomit! Nothing new except a slow news day for sure!

It was really hard to watch him in college. Gray will give us a much better chance of winning. So does Kill.

If Weber tries the NFL, as Jerry Granville used to say, "Not For Long!" That is what NFL will mean for him for sure. He would have been good at St. Olaf or somewhere similar, not D1 that's for sure!

Reality I agree with you, Some people work for 10 Years to earn that much money and that is while raising a family. But I'll bet they don't drive a Benz or throw a 100k down for a one night party either. I agree, no tears being shed me for these players.

Adam Weber's not that bad. I've seen his mobility, and the guy's got a strong arm. He might wind up on somebody's taxi squad, might even surprise some people and be a decent backup.

Lord knows five different offensive coordinators in five years, including one that had the quarterbacks throw a tennis ball and not a football for a week, had no impact on him.

Gotta agree with President Obama: I find it hard to sympathize with billionaires and millionaires squabbling over money. Especially unseemly in the current environment.

enough with the Adam Weber noise. He wasn't invited to other camps for a reason. He was terrible, besides what is he going to say the guy is rotten? Why print it at all. Adam should have a nice career in a rec league somewhere playing flag football.

Don't make excuses for his poor play. He couldn't complete a 12 yd pass and it cost the gophers a bowl game against Iowa state. During that game he comkpleted a td pass to a wide open te that needed to grab it off his shoe. Because adam could throw the ball. A HS QB could have done it but adam struggled.
