I'm still trying to picture him as a quarterback, and it hurts my head.

My own opinion (regardless of what the actors' plans are) is that RM is very talented and that they should use her more and further develop her character, and that DB is not a good actor at all (nor is Max a compelling character), and the show would be making a good choice to let him go.
I agree. I've been puzzled for quite a while why Days seems bent on promoting the Max character so much. Sheffer in particular seemed enamored with Darin. I have nothing against him, but IMO he's bland and dispensable. I've ff'd a lot of his stuff since he started on the show. I wouldn't miss him if he left. Rachel OTOH is a very good actress. I haven't always liked the character of Chelsea, but she needs a story and Dr. McGropey sure wasn't it.
Actually, I can't picture him as a racecar driver, either.
Now, if they made HIM surferdude instead of Dr. FeelGood, then I could buy it. Darin Brooks is a lot like his onscreen brother Billy Warlock. He's got that perpetual boyish face. They needed to cater to that instead of trying to find a square peg in a round hole.
