Re: Window shopping for backup QBs
I say trade for Ryan Lindley.
He has not shown well in his first few starts (lots of picks), but a) he is a rookie and b) his O-line is horrible. Trade a R6 pick for him, and a R6 pick very well might get him, because of his poor performances thus far.
So, why would I want him? I think that he is a BB clone. I watched quite a bit of him at SDSU, and he has a cannon, eludes the pass rush, and is nearly impossible to sack. He is a less-skilled BB, which is perfect for a back-up, especially for a QB that backs up BB.
Again, his performance thus far has more to do with the O-line than it does his own skill set. Heck, Skelton & Kolb already got knocked out (for a few weeks, and for the season, respectively)... so, it would only make sense that a rookie would be throwing picks due to being harassed half of a second after the snap.
