# The Franchise Starter -- Will never leave the field unless carried off and will be the highest-paid player on his team ... Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, etc.
# The First-Round Pick -- The future of the franchise, but untested and not ready ... Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, etc.
# The Solid Starter -- Brings experience, production and could become a cap/draft casualty someday ... Brad Johnson, Rich Gannon.
# The Victim of Circumstances -- Might have stayed as a starter but draft choice or salary cap got in the way ... Mark Brunell, Jeff Garcia, Kerry Collins.
# Slipped And Fell From Grace -- A few bad games in a row, didn't meet early expectations, needs a new start ... Kurt Warner, Tim Couch.
# Always Under Attack -- A guy who people try and replace the whole time they're in the NFL ... Jay Fiedler, Tommy Maddox.
# Elite Career Backup -- A guy worth paying over a million to wear a baseball hat and be ready ... Trent Dilfer, Jon Kitna.
# Backup You Really Never Want To Play -- A guy coaches like on the team but only in an emergency will he play, and not for long ... Todd Collins, Chris Weinke.
# Backup Who Waits For Injuries To Get Work -- The perception is, "We should go to camp without him, but call when in trouble." ... Jeff Blake, Kordell Stewart.
# Developmental Guy -- Someone the coaches think shows signs of being a starter someday but for now running the scout team ... J.T. O'Sullivan.
# Old Guy/Coach -- A player who can run a meeting, spends time showing new kids the right way ... Vinny Testaverde, Jason Garrett.
# Roster Mystery -- If I listed 10 of them, you couldn't tell me a thing about them. But they are on a roster ... Wallace, Doman, Lemon, Van Dyke, Dunn, etc.

All right. O'Sullivan is not a Backup You Really Never Want To Play or a Roster Mystery? I wonder why he is the example?

What is your question? Are you saying that O\'Sullivan should be in the \"backup you never want to play\" category?
