The Backup QB Position

josh johnson would be an interesting prospect. is he still under contract with tampa bay?

If I'm not mistaken, weren't there reports that part of why he was released was because he didn't want to tutor Gabbert.

maybe, but he's been out of the league for a year now. if he knows he's not necessarily going to start somewhere but still wants to make a paycheck he might be a decent option. again, assuming he doesn't want starter money.

Nah, he's a free agent. Rather have RW16 than Johnson though.

Insert wildcat with DWill or Stewart if our backup gets hurt for the rest of the game. Then look for another QB after the game. Hell, when Anderson was in this year all he did was hand off...We don't need 3 QBs.

We have another QB on the roster who also won two consecutive national championships.

I can't even type that with a straight face.

If David Garrard is willing to take backup money would you want to see him in a Panthers uniform? He is a proven commodity, great locker room guy, been around long enough to offer some leadership and help Cam develop.

As to the bolded part above, I've seen very mixed reports about Garrard. It might be wise to look elsewhere.

I'd like to get Dennis Dixon personally, if he'd come cheap.

I think Derek Anderson could handle it. Sure he's not that mobile but Cam plays the role of a pocket passer and he does it much better than his similar counterparts in Campbell, Young, or Vick. I think we would just start calling more passing/no run option plays. We'd probably run more drag routes and checkdowns. I don't think it would be a problem.

I find it ironic how people on this board (not you specifically, Stumpy) are so high on Russell Wilson but then are so quick to call the *Saints' know-nothing QB a midget. Not to defend Breesus, just pointing out the contradiction.

I'd take Johnson over RW as even if he's less accurate, he's closer to Cam's height. You can't coach a player to be taller.

Dennis Dixon or Josh Johnson for a tiny wage, Armanti can be 3rd QB if need be (Long term injury = free agent signing)

i do think hanging onto armanti edwards makes sense if only for the fact that he's a backup quarterback, wide receiver, KR/PR all in one roster spot and he's an option to run the wildcat.

his versatility, if nothing else, may keep him on the roster.

One of the reasons you have a third quarterback is to run the scout team against the starters in practice. You need the 2nd quarterback to actually take somefirst teamreps during the week in case he has to come into the game. If you use Edwards to run the scout team he gets no practice at his regular position which is receiver.

I understand that Garrard was out of football in 2011. That changes things.
