Players these days are picking whatever numbers they want regardless of double numbers or not. As long as the two players aren't on the field at the same time it's OK. Only exception is an offensive lineman picking an eligible number.I know that can be an issue and the BC guys are one on offense and one on defense, but it seems avoidable and confusing.
This game has nothing to do with the backup QB. Daz is thrilled he can blame this one on a backup. This is about a coaching staff that has yet in 6 years to coach an average passing game.
