    he also seems to have a better presence and more confidence than Gerkhe.

    Strong arm, very accurate. He should be QB2.

    He should be the back up. Gehrke is not accurate, although he runs well.

    He throws a beautiful ball. Hopefully he works his way into the QB2 spot.

    Really liked Cade's play today. Apsay looks like the real backup to sefo.

    Count me as one who was impressed. Good vision, looked off the secondary, hit receivers in stride, found check down quickly, had good arm strength, and threw a catchable ball.

    I think Gehrke is still the backup, but he'll have a short leash.

    Tell WinterHawk to warm up the station wagon. Apsay is much better.

    What's the general consensus on the backup if Liufao's shoulder falls out? From what I read (via cbssports.com game tracker), Apsay looks legit, but was that just against mop up players of a crappy team? Thing is, at least he was completing passes.

    Apsay played against the same players as everyone else. I wouldn't take much into it.

    I would put Apsay as the number 2 based on the touch and accuracy of his passes and poise in the pocket. Gehrke just looks lost out there and none of his throws impressed.

    From the little I've seen of Apsay, I see potential to be pretty solid. This is limited to some open practices and today, though, so a very small sample set.

    Gehrke had a duck that he threw straight in the ground and fumbled his other pass attempt. He just seems to look worse and worse every time we see him go back to pass.

    Apsay looked good in limited action. I'd like to see more. Gerke struggles in live games.

    Basically what his HS film showed. Be interesting to see what we do at the QB2 position going forward.

    I really like Apsay's fundamentals as a passer. Very good base and balance in this tiny sample size.

    I got in trouble earlier, so don't tell anyone I think he might be a good passer

    We left before Apsay came in. Wanted to beat the crowd, haha.

    Gerke always looks to me like a guy who just doesn't have the talent to play at this level. Looks like he is overmatched by the game.

    Apsay looked very natural out there, much more comfortable that Gerke. Of course it was against a really bad opponent but he showed some promise for the future. He needs to get bigger and stronger and in the future the quality of athletes he is playing against will be much better but he looked good.

    Gehrke did have a nicely thrown TD get dropped. So he can make passes, just is wildly inaccurate.

    That pass would have been picked against Incarnate Wood.

    Haha yeah you are right. But it did hit our guy in the numbers. It was a pretty high pass if I remember. Big arc.

    He does have the strength. Doesn't seem like he can handle the adrenaline rush of the actual game.

    We may be hosed either way if Sefo can't go. Might as well get our future emergency starter ready rather than give it to the guy who has had more reps dating to last year but done next to nothing with them.
