Is J.T. O'Sullivan a starting NFL QB?

The name J.T. O'Sullivan isn't thrown around too much among NFL fans. Unless you enjoy talking about former presidents of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

The soon-to-be 29-year-old is a journeyman, having spent time with nine NFL teams and having played in NFL Europe. (Did we mention he was the president of the Phi Delts? That frat got kicked off our school's campus a few years back. Good guys, though).

But he was a killer collegiate quarterback. After throwing for a record six TDs in a playoff game for Miami USC Ohio State LSU Texas UC Davis (it's kinda like a football school, except it isn't and it offers a class called Tractor Driving, which we hear is fantastic!) he was drafted in the sixth round of the 2002 draft. And then he bounced around from team to team as you'd expect a player from UC Davis would.

But then you see sentences like this written by a good columnist from a respectable newspaper and you have to wonder if your favorite team's offense can put together scoring drives in back-to-back games this season.
With all but the most outlying counties still to report, we can now project a winner in Mike Nolan's preferred method of migraine management. J.T. O'Sullivan has pretty well nailed down the starting quarterback spot.
At least it's not Alex Smith! But still...

It appears that J.T. O'Sullivan is going to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback.

J.T. O'Sullivan plays football. J.T. O'Sullivan is on the San Francisco 49ers. J.T. O'Sullivan players quarterback. J.T. O'Sullivan is going to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback.

Oh dear.

is alex smith really THAT bad? We're in for another long season. Should have taken Braylon.

I just can't see any reason that anyone could still be a 49ers fan.

no, alex isn't that bad. he showed improvement in 2006 and was hurt and had a bad offensive coordinator last year.

J.T. knows Martz's offense after spending a couple of seasons in Detroit. But wow, I can't believe they are going to go with J.T.
