Wild card players are rare and have multi-facets to their game, able to do all on a Pro Level with impact. RAC yardages is good with Gardner, who can catch, run, and throw strikes as a "former" QB convert.
Another player, with much more eperience at the Pro Level is Tom Tupa, who has QB'd in stretches with teams, punted on a regular basis, kicked field goals at crucial moments, and is of course a holder that is a threat to exercise fake kicks. He can also run for first downs, using his QB ability to throw from the Punting or Holder's position.
Clinton Portis showed good arc on the ball when he does throw. Hmmm. We already know what he can do in the backfield and catching it.
Brian Mitchell is closer to the Hall of Fame, more than people even know, since he is among the top two greats as a Special Teams returner, but he also QB'd the 1986 NFC Championship game (that's right Joe Gibbs took us to 5 of these). When we lost all QB depth in that game, Mitchell was the emergency QB and he performed so well, he got kudos from Parcells, Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks and Harry Carson. The only player that did any better was Tom Matte of the 60's Colts who catapulted them the NFL Championship. Mitchell was also a RB, great receiver, wicked hitter on defensive special teams, and was a feared tackler, whenever a player got a pick off the QB. Only Jim Brown at one point had more yardage than he. He was the Ulitmate Wild Card player. Now we have Super Tupa!
