Best backup QB in the NFL?

In the last 6 games where he's thrown a pass, over the last 20 weeks of regular season football, Kyle Boller has completed 91 of 152 passes (60%) for 1178 yards, 11 TDs, and 5 interceptions, for a passer rating of 94.7. In one of those games he only came in for a drive, so to project to a 16 game schedule you would more than triple his stats to about 3800 yards and 35 TDs. Kyle Boller has become a punching bag for the talking heads at NFL Live, with implied slights such as "McNair better stay healthy" or "Troy Smith could be starting in a year or 2," but Boller is going to end up signing somewhere else next year for a bargain contract and have a Delhomme style breakout season.
