Derek Anderson's best success has come during times when he's worked under Rob Chudzinski as an OC. Away from Chudzinski though, Anderson's been up and down. This past offseason, there was plenty of speculation he'd follow Chudzinski to Cleveland. Most were surprised - pleasantly so - when he re-signed here instead.
After watching him the other night and reading some of the camp stuff, I wonder if not having him here this season will affect him.
Anderson's only a backup, and Newton has generally been durable. There were, however, a fair number of 'slow to get up' plays as the season ran on last year.
So how comfortable are you right now with Derek Anderson as the backup QB?
If you're not, what could you suggest as a realistically viable alternative?
