Feeley, Sage Rosenfels, Gus Frerotte, Joey Harrington, Daunte Culpepper, Cleo Lemon, Trent Green, John Beck, Chad Pennington, Chad Henne, Tyler Thigpen, and now, Matt Moore. What a murderer's row!

TFD Opinions: Republican Presidential Nomination Odds October 12

Change from October 5 in parentheses:

8. Other 1% (-3)- It doesn't look like there's anyone left to jump into the race and the 1st primary is now about 3 months away so it would be very hard to get in at this point.

8. Rick Santorum 1% (-1)- Despite everyone imploding around him, Santorum has yet to see any increase in support. His only remaining possibility is to do moderately well in Iowa and hope others drop out so he can grab the right wing mantle.
