Would anyone else feel comfortable with Anderson starting?

He might be the best of the 3 right now.

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.

I think I'd like to see how Clausen does with a healthy Oline and some real weapons at TE and WR for a change. It would help me determine how much of last year was him, poor coaching, or just a bad hand due to injuries, etc. But otherwise I'm cool with trusting Coach R to decide who gets the nod. If that's Anderson, so be it.

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.

After last night? No... I'd have to see how he fares against the starters to get a better gauge of how he really does under the lights

No. I rather see Jimmy or Cam struggle and learn from their mistakes as starters than just sitting on the bench to grasp the system. They are the franchises' future so I don't mind if thing are rough in the beginning. Anderson is here to work with them off the field, not be a starter.

I'm not trying to say one way or the other, just wondering out loud here. Mind you we still have 3 more preseason games to go to get some film on them all.

That said, throwing for 3rd stringers and playing against 3rd stringers could cancel each other out.

Anderson is here to be the starter if Jimmy and Cam are not ready to go.

Shula is here to work with them off the field.

What did he do last night to look any better than Jimmy or Cam?

He's here as a mentor, I'd prefer him to do that holding a clip board with one of the guys with an actual future taking the snaps.

Maybe, but that pass rush coming from the first string guys were night and day compared to later in the game. Makes all the difference for many QBs

If Anderson is a better starting option than it has to be him. If it's close between him and either Cam or Jimmy then the tie goes to the future.

Good call.

With some more training camp to go, and games we will get a chance to see who is more prepared.

I just wonder if Chud is giving almost all of the practice snaps to Jimmy and Cam to see what he has, and see if they are good enough to beat out Anderson.
