Not the entire season, but maybe 4 or 5 games to give Pickles and Cam more reps, and most importantly time to grasp the system?

I'm not really sure how I feel about it, but wondering what everyone else thinks.

He might be the best of the 3 right now.

Whoever gives the team the best chance to win.

Too much talent on this team to accept losing for a young QB to get game reps.

He looked ok last night but as a starter over Jimmy, Cam.....No way.

Gotta go with the young guys.

If Cam isn't ready (and he probably won't be), I'd rather let Clausen steer the ship for a season. He continues to develop and we get his value up higher.

We're not contending this season, we're progressing. Sinking time into Anderson is a zero gain, he can counsel from the sideline.

You honestly wouldn't watch your team play? They could put a Bo-Bo the one armed monkey out there at QB and I would still watch every game.

As much as I want Cam to get in there and play if Anderson can help us win games I'm all for it. I'd prefer he stay number 3 though because when it comes time to cut ties with guys we can get more value from Jimmy if he does well. I just want to win and have fun watching it.

I thought Anderson actually locked on to his WR's more than Cam/Jimmy.

He didn't throw that many passes but he definitely locked in on every throw, if it wasn't vs 3rd/4th team defense who knows what woudl have happened.

That's kinda what I was thinking.

I will watch it again and see, and I have not been to training camp, but he does look a little more polished. As he should.


IMO a vet in there until the bye would give Cam and Jimmy some much needed confidence and time. I just don't want to beat up Cam too early, or beat on Jimmy any more than we already have.

Just wonder if 5 games of experience is worth gambling with the psyche.

He has a leg up on Cam and Jimmy because he is a "pro bowler" and veteran but he's had less reps with the starting O-Line than both of them and he was playing last night against third and fourth stringers so I'm reserving judgment on him. He seems like kind of a douche too. But if he plays well against first teamers (which I doubt we'll ever find out since Cam and Jimmy will be splitting those reps) then I'm all for him starting a few weeks.
