Would anyone else feel comfortable with Anderson starting?

He might be the best of the 3 right now.

This is the only correct answer.

He knows the system as evidenced by the fact that he was calm, effective and has had little to no time with the team. Let the young guys catch up.

If Cam or Jimmy cannot fix their 'issues' by week 1, then yeah Anderson should start imho.

What about Anderson's issues? Most notably, not being that good.

He's still the more polished of the bunch. Which is unfortunate.

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.

I guessed that Anderson would be signed by the Panthers before the Cardinals even made him available.

People forget that Anderson only success as player came from having Chudzinski as his Offensive Coordinator.

And at the time I thought that the plan from the Chudz/Rivera would be to have Anderson start until Cam was ready ala Eli, Cutler, Freeman etc.

But, I don't see where Clausen factors into the equation.

If Anderson was going to start he would be playing in the first quarter not the fourth.

He was calm against guys that won't have a job in two weeks- I'm not impressed.

true, honestly, i know that he was good in Chud's offense, but that was years ago. i only want to start Anderson if the other QBs arent ready and honestly, last night they both looked ready to start. i think either Clausen or Newton should start.

Don't get me wrong please, if DA gives us the best chance to win then by all means, start him and let's surprise some people, but I don't think that's the case now, or in the future.

Based on 3 completions and one touchdown that anyone on this forum could have thrown, no I don't think I'm comfortable starting DA just yet. I'd much rather delve into what we have with Newton and Clausen before going that route. It's quite the quarterback controversy we have here, though, undoubtedly. Who knows what Rivera is thinking.

Why would he need to start the first preseason game? I was talking to one of my friends who lives for Sundays... asked him if he's happy to have NFL football this weekend. He said "this weekend isn't NFL football, it's football for rookies and second teamers. The next two weeks we'll see NFL football for a half, and then maybe a quarter the following week."

I think we'll have a pretty good idea if Anderson's in the mix come week 3 of preseason. He wasn't even eligible to practice 'til last Thursday, then came on and held a clipboard for 2-3 days while the young guys got the work.

It'll be interesting to watch practice reports the next week and a half to see who's getting the most work. At some point they need to make a decision and give the first game starter the most reps.
