What QBs do you expect to get benched this season?

Recommended Posts

Andy Dalton, Marcus Mariota, Derek Carr (less likely than the other two).

I'd say Fitzmagic, but that's like death & taxes.

Eli, Flacco & Case Keenum are just placeholders until the respective teams are out of the playoff picture and start thinking about 2020.

The obvious other hot seat guy is Marcus Mariota - and a capable backup in Ryan Tannehill.   It's also an issue with health/injuries with Mariota, too, but that wouldn't count as a benching.

The guys with the shortest leash who don't already have a clear successor have to be Derek Carr and Andy Dalton.   Gruden loves every QB, so he'll give someone else a shot if OAK is eliminated (and frankly, might help their 1.1 odds).   CIN has Ryan Finley as a 4th round investment, and while it's totally fine to make him a perennial backup, it wouldn't shock me if CIN decides to see what they have there.

The tag on Mariota and Winston next year starts at about 30 million.

I would say if their teams see poor play from them and a spark from a backup then they are both done.

Anyone not named Haskins in DC may get a short leash. (Haskins won't start the season as the #1)

I could see Eli playing all 16 or he could get the 2004 Kurt Warner hook after 4-8 weeks.

I think we can add Garappolo to this list.

I want to address the serious ones mentioned in this thread one by one.  Most of the names mentioned are far fetched.

Andy Dalton

Most likely not.  Ryan Finley hasn't looked great this preseason.  We can be sure that at this point, he's not better than Andy Dalton.  In any case, i think Dalton in this new offense will surprise some people.

1% chance.

Marcus Mariota

This i could see.  Mariota has been a bit of a disappointment since his sophomore season.  Still, i only give it a 5% chance.

Derek Carr

He's not getting benched for Peterman. 0% chance (at least, we all hope not).

Fitzmagic

Yep, 75% chance.

On 8/17/2019 at 1:20 AM, Broncofan said:

Eli

99% chance, yes.  Successor in waiting, been down the last few years, etc.

On 8/17/2019 at 1:20 AM, Broncofan said:

Flacco

90% chance, yes.  With Drew Lock waiting, Flacco would have to play well and Lock would have to be pretty bad in practice to not get a chance at some point.

On 8/17/2019 at 1:20 AM, Broncofan said:

Case Keenum

99% chance it's happening.  Probably before week 4.

Winston

I doubt it.  I give it a 25% chance because Gabbert's career as a starter won't seem to die, but i think he'll play better than expected.  Plus there's no real successor behind him.

Jimmy Garappolo

1% chance.  Again, no real successor behind him, and they paid the guy.  They'll play the guy.

8 hours ago, wwhickok said:

Lamar Jackson

5% chance.  But nothing behind him, and i think they're committed (for this season at least) to seeing how this kind of offense works.

8 hours ago, wwhickok said:

Alex Smith

That would be something.

 

One other name that wasn't mentioned yet -

Josh Allen - not very likely (maybe 5% or less), but if he struggles i could see the Bills trying to see what Tyree Jackson can do.  Especially if Lamar Jackson is tearing it up.

Lamar Jackson?

Browns fans want Lamar to suck so badly, it's funny.

He won't even make the 53 and I would argue shouldn't be on the PS. 

If Allen gets benched it is because the D is still balling out and its his particular play costing the Bills games. Barkley has looked really solid all summer and if the Bills thought they were a playoff team they could make a switch to the veteran. Like you said, probably less then a 5% chance.
