What if Matt Barkley gets hurt?

If Barkley goes down this year, it seems unlikely that Jackson would be elevated to #2.  What Veteran QB sitting at home currently or maybe cut do you think they would bring in?

 

thumbs down to the first smart guy that responds “Kyle Orton”

EJ is around

Well, for a team that trotted out 4 guys last year, I think it’s a fair discussion topic to wonder who Beane might have on speed dial.

 

yes, the season is likely over if Allen gets hurt, but I’d like to have a viable guy who could step in and win games outside of Barkley

They picked Barkley up in like week 7.  There will be another Barkley type on waivers.  I appreciate the topic but Barkley is probably one of the worst backups in the league (great guy though).  

 

If Allen doesn’t take the next step or gets hurt, season is probably over.  I’m almost rather see Jackson than Barkley.

Higher career rating than Barkley!!! EJ comes back, they win the SB, and we have a new QB controversy!!!

You're worried about the backup QB getting hurt?

I think that Victoria, Audra, Jarrod, Heath or Nick would be able to step in without missing a beat. :thumbsup:

It’s not a worry.  It’s a discussion point

My guesses (in no particular order):

- Try to convince McCown to comeback out of retirement.

- Brock

- Weeden

- Landry Jones 

- Matt Cassel

Surprised they didnt bring in a 4th. I could live with  Landry Jones,but I think they only carry 2 QB

I agree on Jones. You could do worse than a couple of weeks of him. My guess is that’s why they only carry 2 as well. There are enough functioning guys out there that you can survive.

He has a 68 career qb rating.  What backup is worse than that?  There’s a reason you find him on the market in week 7.  Great guy and someone I will admit I was completely wrong on.  I wanted him when he was in the draft.

Really? I guess it’s desperate times at that point but Jones sucks. I think that was another Barbarian favorite.

I don't really care what their QB ratings are.  Backups are backups for a reason.

I’m not saying that he is good. I’m saying if week 9 rolls around and a guy needs to play a week you can add Jones. He’s 3-2 as a starter, completed 64% of his passes and has 8 TDs to 7 INTs. He’s not Peterman.

So you don’t care if his career number say he’s been terrible for his whole career?  Interesting thought.  You know there are some backups who aren’t necessarily terrible right? 

 

I actually just checked out the backup list.  It’s pretty horrible.  Still doesn’t mean Barkley is good and you can’t upgrade.

Maybe we can trade 2nd for Oaklands backup. He knows the playbook right!

True.  I still ride with EJ.  It would be a Disney movie!

He’s acceptable as well. The point is, there are guys out on the street that you can add every year that won’t kill you. The Bills added 2 last year. There are a handful of those types out there now.
