Ok, I know what you're all saying, J.P. Losman, horrible quaterback, bad win percentage, ok I agree with you, on some extent.

No matter how much you dislike him and his play, you must admit, he can throw the long ball.  Yes, his win percentage was low, but look at the team around him.  Horrible pass and run defense, horrible offensive line (almost as bad as this year), and poor wide receiver play.

Lee Evans was the deep threat and thrived with Losman (they were close friends which equals great chemistry).  Josh Reed was known for dropping balls, alot, that changed the following year when Edwards became the starter.

Now I understand your dislike of him, but could you imagine him with T.O. on the team.  I think the offense would really thrive with him under center, if you designed the playbook around him with play-action passes and bootlegs, as much as this pains me to say this, as Mike Mularkey did, I think the offense could have been successful with T.O. and Evans going deep together.  Losman could throw it too where only the wide receiver could reach it.  His short passes were not accurate but his long ball was one of the best in the league, lets not forget he was the second fastest QB in the league behind Michael Vick.

I always thought Losman showed potential, and his stats have shown it, he is better than both Edwards and Fitzpatrick, and I think under the right circumstances could have been a great quarterback, we will never know
