    Backup QBs

    Only 25% of the NFL teams are not in panic mode if their starter goes down with injury. I will not go into a detailed breakdown, but I think most NFL fans will agree with the categorizations.

    Following are the current depth charts of the 32 NFL teams and my rankings alphabetized within category.

    The following teams should be ok if their starter gets injured.

    Why? Simply because the backups have NFL experience and will be able to do a reasonable job if given the reigns.

    Atlanta Falcons
    Michael Vick Matt Schaub D.J. Shockley/Bryan Randall

    Baltimore Ravens
    Steve McNair Kyle Boller Brian St. Pierre/Drew Olson

    Buffalo Bills
    Kelly Holcomb J.P. Losman Craig Nall/Tory Woodbury

    Chicago Bears
    Rex Grossman Brian Griese Kyle Orton/B.J. Symons

    New Orleans Saints
    Drew Brees Todd Bouman Jamie Martin/Adrian McPherson

    New York Jets
    Chad Pennington Patrick Ramsey Brooks Bollinger/Kellen Clemens

    Philadelphia Eagles
    Donovan McNabb Jeff Garcia Koy Detmer/Timmy Chang

    San Francisco 49ers
    Alex D. Smith Trent Dilfer Jesse Palmer

    Teams that could do ok with a little luck, karma, and prayer.

    Why? They do not possess the experience that the first tier teams have, but have shown glimpses of promise during their career in college or in the professional ranks.

    Denver Broncos
    Jake Plummer Jay Cutler Bradlee Van Pelt/Preston Parsons

    Pittsburgh Steelers
    Ben Roethlisberger Charlie Batch Omar Jacobs

    San Diego Chargers
    Philip Rivers A.J. Feeley Charlie Whitehurst/Brett Elliott

    Seattle Seahawks
    Matt Hasselbeck Seneca Wallace David Greene/Gibran Hamdan

    St. Louis Rams
    Marc Bulger Gus Frerotte Ryan Fitzpatrick

    Tennessee Titans
    Billy Volek Vince Young Matt Mauck/Cody Hodges

    There is always next season.

    Why? There is no reason to believe the backups will do a good job at this point in their careers as an NFL starter or they have proven that they do not have what it takes. Sure, some could rise from the ashes or rise to the occasion, but the odds are stacked against them.

    Arizona Cardinals
    Kurt Warner John Navarre Matt Leinart/Rohan Davey

    Carolina Panthers
    Jake Delhomme Chris Weinke Stefan LeFors/Brett Basanez

    Cincinnati Bengals
    Carson Palmer Doug Johnson Anthony Wright

    Dallas Cowboys
    Drew Bledsoe Tony Romo Drew Henson/Matt Baker

    Detroit Lions
    Jon Kitna Josh McCown Dan Orlovsky

    Green Bay Packers
    Brett Favre Aaron Rodgers Ingle Martin

    Houston Texans
    David Carr Sage Rosenfels Cody Pickett/Quinton Porter

    Indianapolis Colts
    Peyton Manning Jim Sorgi Shaun King/Josh Betts

    Jacksonville Jaguars
    Byron Leftwich David Garrard Quinn Gray/Paul Pinegar

    Kansas City Chiefs
    Trent Green Damon Huard Brodie Croyle/Casey Printers

    Miami Dolphins
    Daunte Culpepper Joey Harrington Cleo Lemon/Brock Berlin

    Minnesota Vikings
    Brad Johnson Mike McMahon J.T. O'Sullivan/Tarvaris Jackson

    New England Patriots
    Tom Brady Matt Cassel Todd Mortensen/Corey Bramlet

    New York Giants
    Eli Manning Rob Johnson Tim Hasselbeck/Jared Lorenzen

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Chris Simms Luke McCown Tim Rattay/Bruce Gradkowski / Jay Fiedler

    Washington Redskins
    Mark Brunell Jason Campbell Todd Collins/Casey Bramlet

    Hopeless.

    This category consists of backups and starters that have either proven they don’t have what it takes or they are too young and inexperienced.

    Cleveland Browns
    Charlie Frye Ken Dorsey Derek Anderson/Lang Campbell

    Oakland Raiders
    Aaron Brooks Marques Tuiasosopo Andrew Walter/Reggie Robertson

    There you have it. My detail-less analysis. If you don’t like it, print it off and wipe your *** with it.

    Most of the list is good, but not sure about a few:

    Jets are basically hanging on a thread (Chad's shoulder) this year. If Chad goes down we are worse off then we were last year with Baby New Year. Ramsey has not looked good in camp at all.

    The Bills should be in the hopeless category. Both QBs haven't shown anything.

    I think the Seahawks go into the "Better Luck Next Year" if Matt goes down, so does their season.

    Buffalo Bills
    Kelly Holcomb J.P. Losman Craig Nall/Tory Woodbury


    your kiddin right? they should be in atleast theres always next year, atleast. Holcomb has never shown he can be consistant when starting..they are a "Hopeless" in my book



    New Orleans Saints
    Drew Brees Todd Bouman Jamie Martin/Adrian McPherson



    Bouman? no...Their Hopeless.



    San Francisco 49ers
    Alex D. Smith Trent Dilfer Jesse Palmer


    Why are they here? Trent Dilfer isnt great, and Smith sucks. If they got Charlie frye in hopeless, their are definitly hopeless.



    Teams that could do ok with a little luck, karma, and prayer.

    Why? They do not possess the experience that the first tier teams have, but have shown glimpses of promise during their career in college or in the professional ranks.

    San Diego Chargers
    Philip Rivers A.J. Feeley Charlie Whitehurst/Brett Elliott


    you serious? so they think Feeley is better then the likes of Aaron Rodgers, David Garrard, Josh McCown, Joey Harrington, Matt Cassel, Luke McCown, and Jason Campbell?


    Tennessee Titans
    Billy Volek Vince Young Matt Mauck/Cody Hodges


    I dont think Vince is going to be great in the NFL period, but if he is, it will be in a couple years. They should in the "there is always next season"


    There is always next season.

    Why? There is no reason to believe the backups will do a good job at this point in their careers as an NFL starter or they have proven that they do not have what it takes. Sure, some could rise from the ashes or rise to the occasion, but the odds are stacked against them.

    Arizona Cardinals
    Kurt Warner John Navarre Matt Leinart/Rohan Davey


    I agree with them being here cause i think Matt will go through some tough stretches, but they have Vince Young in team could do OK category, but have Matt Leinart here?


    Detroit Lions
    Jon Kitna Josh McCown Dan Orlovsky


    McCown is a good back up to me. I would put them in the Team would be OK category.


    Green Bay Packers
    Brett Favre Aaron Rodgers Ingle Martin


    Rodgers is going to be good, and with a couple years of sitting and learning, if Favre gets hurt, id put them in the "Teams that could do ok with a little luck, karma, and prayer."


    Jacksonville Jaguars
    Byron Leftwich David Garrard Quinn Gray/Paul Pinegar


    Garrard is a good back up. Team would be fine with him. horrible spot.



    Miami Dolphins
    Daunte Culpepper Joey Harrington Cleo Lemon/Brock Berlin


    im not a big fan of Harrington, but definitly should be in the "Teams that could do ok with a little luck, karma, and prayer." category.



    Washington Redskins
    Mark Brunell Jason Campbell Todd Collins/Casey Bramlet


    they should be in the "Teams that could do ok with a little luck, karma, and prayer." category. hell, they might be better with Campbell.


    Hopeless.

    This category consists of backups and starters that have either proven they don’t have what it takes or they are too young and inexperienced.

    Cleveland Browns
    Charlie Frye Ken Dorsey Derek Anderson/Lang Campbell

    what? Frye is going to be a good QB......this one baffles me with the likes of Alex Smith not down here with him.






    this list is horrible

    I am not sure of Joey will be any better here in Miami than he was in Detroit but I think he is a decent backup to DC and no worse than Gus/AJ/Jay Fiedler.

    I don't get the Jags one at all. David Garrard can get the job done on the field and he should have started for them in the playoffs last year. This one completely baffles me.

    Like I said, "There you have it. My detail-less analysis. If you don’t like it, print it off and wipe your *** with it."

    A few of you made some good points.

    I just posted the depth charts for the various team and categorized them for discussion. You don't agree with it, oh well, don't give yourself so much credit...I hardly think you are the spokesman for all NFL fans.

    There is no way to prove that the categorizations are correct or incorrect. You can throw a bunch of statistics into the mix, but the breakdown still ends up being mostly subjective.

    The real point of the post was to show that the majority of teams are screwed if their starting QB gets injured, unlike some sports journalists like to say. Categorize them however you wish. It's a message board. If it makes you feel like more of a man to rip on the poster than you have bigger issues than wondering if this one-minute categorization of backup QBs is correct or not.
