Would anyone else feel comfortable with Anderson starting?

No, cam and jimmy are only going to get better. The only way that will happen is by continuity playing. Anderson is a backup plain and simple.

He might be the best of the 3 right now.

He didn't exactly play against first string, though. I think Jimmy can hold it down but he isn't going to take us to the playoffs.

i would HATE it, first off, it doesnt help out Clausen and second, he hasnt shown me that he's the best of the three yet. Clausen threw a TD vs. the first team defense, Newton showed poise that i was shocked to see out of a first time NFL starter and Anderson played like himself. he had a TD that was on a short pass, but i wasnt a fan of a play where he almost threw a pick, but in my book, Clausen or Newton should start.

I figure they brought Anderson in because with the lockout the young guys basically have 4-5 weeks to learn the offense. It's likely not enough time to be ready for the regular season.

Look for Anderson to get a bit more work the next 3 weeks to see if he can be a placeholder for a while. If he starts the season and they do badly for 4-5 games, look for him to be relegated to the bench. If he starts the season and the team is winning, look at him to stay there 'til Jimmy or Cam look good enough to dislodge him from the position.

in my book he shouldnt start, he should be the 3rd guy who just teaches the young guys the offense.

It would concern me a lot, because it would mean that either our two drafted qb's weren't good enough to start yet, or that they were injured.
