NFL full of QB quandaries heading into Week 3
“We’ve got more plays for him than we did a year ago, so he’ll be on the field,” Reid said of Vick, who played sparingly last season. “It isn’t going to be five or six plays this year.”
The Eagles beat Detroit and backup quarterback Shaun Hill 35-32. With Matthew Stafford out with a right shoulder injury, Hill went 25 of 45 for 335 yards with two TDs and two interceptions.
Panthers coach John Fox isn’t making any assurances about his QB situation. Moore, anointed the starter after Carolina jettisoned Jake Delhomme and all his turnovers in the offseason, has six giveaways in two games after committing two more Sunday. He was benched for rookie Jimmy Clausen in the fourth quarter of a 20-7 loss to Tampa Bay.
Clausen was 7 of 13 for 59 yards with an interception.
Fox said it’s “way too early” to say who will start at quarterback next week against Cincinnati.
New quarterbacks in Oakland and Arizona aren’t doing much better. The Raiders pulled Campbell after an ineffective first half against the Rams. Campbell was 8 for 15 for 87 yards and an interception before being replaced by Bruce Gradkowski. He was acquired from Washington during the offseason but lasted all of six quarters as the starter.
“I was surprised,” Campbell said. “We were down 7-3. We had been moving the ball. We just stalled when we got to the red zone. But at the same time, it was a decision that they made.”
Gradkowski rallied Oakland to three scoring drives and a 16-14 win, and coach Tom Cable said he hadn’t made any decisions about who will start next week at Arizona.
The Raiders will be facing an opponent with its own shakiness at quarterback. Derek Anderson earned the Cardinals’ starting job in the preseason, resulting in Matt Leinart’s release. In Sunday’s 41-7 loss to the Falcons, he was 17-of-31 for 161 yards and two interceptions.
Two guys who aren’t in danger of losing their jobs still had miserable days. The Jaguars’ David Garrard and the Ravens’ Joe Flacco each threw four interceptions in losses.
Compared with all that, the Vikings’ quarterback scenario looks downright rosy. Even if the 40-year-old Favre had three interceptions and no touchdowns in a 14-10 loss to Miami.
After throwing two interceptions at the Metrodome all of last season, Favre accounted for four turnovers in the 2010 home opener.
“It’s just hard to repeat those type of numbers and statistics and it’s hard to repeat wins,” Favre said.
