Are people really saying no? In the event Anderson leaves, Sanchez would be far better than most backups around the NFL. The only issue is he likely wouldn't come cheap, making this an unlikely scenario. Still, people act as if we have to have a great backup QB. It'd be nice but it's unlikely you'll find one. Thus Sanchez would certainly be a good one.

Another thing is a backup QB is more than just someone who does the job right. That is why you see a guy like Vince Young, as talented as he may be, likely done in the NFL. A backup QB has to be someone who is smart and is able to help out the starter. Not sure if Sanchez is that kind of guy but as bad as Clausen is, he might actually be a great backup. And look at how long shoddy QBs are still in the league ala Charlie Batch solely because they are good at helping and preparing the starter on the sidelines.

Besides, if Newton goes down, we're screwed either way.

LOL, no... we've already got Clausen and that's pretty much the same thing.

it all depends on which QB best fits the type spread offense we'll be running.

I'm hoping we aren't running the spread.

lol i was wondering if someone was going to pick up on that.

anyway...yeah, i wouldn't want to run an offense that can put up the offensive numbers like the patriots and saints and the broncos are now. why would i want an offense that is built to capitalize on the new rules protecting the passing game?

it's quite possible that we will be running some form of the spread. the spread is spreading through the league. in a couple years it will be the most run offense in the NFL.

I wouldn't mind it if we had receivers that could get consistent separation, but as it stands, the spread we run prevents us from running the ball at times to support the passing game.

Pretty much this. Derek Anderson was brought in because he knew the Chud system from his days with the Browns. He also provided someone who could help Cam in his study during his transition to the NFL.
