Should we draft another quarterback this year?

Not to replace Cam by any stretch but DA is getting old and Pickles is useless. It seems a lot of clubs take one every few years, and we really need some one with kore Cams skill set as a back up. Personally I do not think we should take an upper round guy but I would be ok taking a project to develop.

I think they've been looking for a back up qb since last year. Knowing gettleman we will only draft one if the value is right for when we are drafting. Probably look for us grab one through FA next off season

No. If Cam goes down we are screwed anyways, might as well tank for better draft picks

Exactly. I think Cousins is going to be a going to be a good quarterback. Also if we draft one that develops someone will give us something for him in the future vs a free agent that You know what you are gettting.

depends on how the staff feels about DA.  chud was closely tied to him so with him out the rest of the staff might not like as much.  in todays NFL vets are generally suited to be backups because no prospective NFL pro wants to be known throughout their career as "Cam's backup".

 

even if we land a decent one in the draft, they wont stay past their rookie deal. theyll head off to compete for a starting spot.

Hopefully we can keep Anderson as long as possible.

I don't think he's going anywhere as long as we want him.  If he was going to leave it would have been this year with Chud to Cleveland I'd bet.   DA seems to be cool with being a backup, and smartly so.  Getting paid millions to hold a clipboard sounds pretty good to me.

I agreee with you that no young guy wants to be known as a career back up but new England has gotten picks out of the backups and will get something for Mallet and if the Redskins do not need Cousins long term they will get a lot of value in trade for a guy that came to them in the sixth.

I was thinking about this just today.

 

We do have bigger needs in the draft, but if the value is right in the 3rd or 4th, I wouldn't mind it.

 

It'd be nice to have a cheap guy on the roster we can groom for a few years, but he'd have to be able

to come in and execute in case of Cam getting hurt (and that's bound to happen sooner or later).
