Mr. Scot

Backup QBs...

28 posts in this topic

Mike Glennon may not be the only backup QB we face on our upcoming schedule.

 

Matt Cassel has been named the starter for the Vikings this weekend. 

 

Cassel was promoted to starter because Christian Ponder is healing from a fractured rib.

 

(at least that's the official story...)

Considering our history with such things... not good news.

Sometimes it is better to play a struggling stater than backup

Mike Glennon is a skinny fellow. A Palmer-shot from Kraken might do more than just break a rib.

Well, from what I hear, neither back-up is extremely mobile. That could play GREATLY in our favor if our secondary can take those quick shots away. I mean, Eli started dropping before we got to him. As long as they don't start a back-up for the first time against us..... we should be good. Haha!

at least it won't be Cassel's first start if he is indeed the starter when we play them, that's usually what kills us.

my hope is that we see a change this year.

 

so far we've done really well against non-mobile QBs and none of those backups are known for being mobile.

 

one thing about our history against back up QBs is that we usually get them the first week they hit the field. with these potential backups hitting the field now we shouldn't have the problem we have had.

 

i'm just not as worried about it as i used to be.

    • With rivera thinking defense would win mentality..they thought Cam would be enough him and Smitty and double trouble...didn't work that way..this is a passing league and you have to adjust..front 7 is nice but if the team is getting ball out quick it negates it.Our offense in the SB was slow and line not good on the right side..After loosing Smity we had no true threat...Benjamin is good but is slow. Ginn and Brown weak and small..they are no smity ..If Steve were here we would have had a 2015 SB. Imagine Smitty in Browns place during SB...the organization took a turn for worst on offense should have gotten a  replacement benji was not it or was not enough.
    • So you answer a question with a question? Have no opinion?  Scared to guess?
    • correct. herbert spencer's concept (falsely attributed to darwin) was used heavily throughout the late 19th century to add a scientific justification for things like child labor and opposing evils such as regulations. some people were meant to be poor! it is a sure sign someone has no empathy and shouldn't be a viable voice in putting together a society that works for everyone because it is inherently anti-social.
