Probably the Matt Moore-Josh Rosen scenario. Or I suppose a Foles trade becomes cheaper as trade options dry up. 

 

I do think there is a chance we like McCarron.

McCown. 

 

Bridgewater wasn't very good even before his knee exploded, and McCarron will want to start somewhere IMO.

McCarron has, so far, proven nothing; McCown is a journeyman at best and Bridgewater might never be the same after his knee injury.

 

How about, none of them and just trade up for Rosen or Darnold and let them start Day 1?

I voted McCown because you can get him for cheap and he'd be a great "coach" for Lamar Jackson.

You mean, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold or Baker Mayfield?

Because you have $40MM in cap space, and why not put a little bit of it to work and don't put that kind of pressure on a kid. Could be a reason. 

Bring the veteran in and let your guy beat him out.

McCown seems to be a good placeholder/bridge guy for (hopefully) Rosen or Mayfield to learn under. 

 

Could do a heck of a lot worse than 67.3 %; 2,926 yards; 18 TDs; and 9 INTs while keeping the seat warm. It's basically signing a little bit better of output than Taylor gave us throwing, minus some running, and probably at a discount.

I was about to say I didn't care what they did at this point, just get a QB — but this comment has me reconsidering...

 

I HOPE TO GOD THEY DON'T DRAFT LAMAR JACKSON.

McCown. Thought that before this week began too. 

 

He's a guy that can still play. He can be productive. It's said he's an excellent mentor that will be sought after to be a QB coach when he retires. Very convenient for us with an inexperienced QB coach, and a highly drafted QB incoming.

 

He's a professional. I think he would play well, but not well enough that too many people will be upset when the rookie takes over. This would be just an amazing "get" for the clubhouse and the field.

Out of those three - I would go McCown, but I am not sure any of those 3 are the final choice. 

 

I find it it interesting how all of the big name FA QBs are getting very short term deals.  

Cousins 3 years

Bradford 1 year

Keenum 2 years

 

Pretty big money, but short deals.  I would be happy with a cheaper option for 2 years as a back-up/ bridge.

McCown is fine, McCarron is fine, or just about anyone else - keep the cost below 9 million per season and I think we are looking good.

McCown, not to play, but to help mentor the rookie. He was already offered a QB coach position last year.

Whichever one of those 3 will take the least amount of money

McCarron.  Biggest upside.  McCown is okay, but not exciting.

best way to keep pressure off the kid is to invest the 40MM in players who can be on the field when he is

Mccown is the obvious.....Bridgewater looks to be a jet....and Mccarron would be paid not to be a bridge....i want a top 5 QB rookie pick so play mccown next season or part of it.....

I just can't see Matt Moore being your fallback plan after making the playoffs and not wanting to take steps backwards... McBeane have shown themselves to be smarter than that...

Now I'm nervous. No one left is a starter. So now we will likely see the rookie sooner than later, and if it's Allen we are in for a long season.

I don't really care as long as we land one of the top 3 QBs in this draft class! 

 

 

I just hope we don't miss out on a QB in the draft and end up trading a 1st for Foles... 

Or decide not to trade up and give up a 1st for Foles instead.

I would almost rather they sign Kaepernick than any of these guys. At least that would be interesting.
