    I'm sorry, if you are counting on any backup qb to win you games you are being unrealistic. Look at the cowboys - Dalton was considered one of if not the best backup in the league, and the teams performance still dropped dramatically.

    If your starter goes down for any length of time due to injury your just screwed, and therefore I think the importance of backup QB is way over blown.

    Maybe. But we should have a backup that at least gives us a chance. Strevler does not.

    Almsot no back ups in the league give their teams a legitimate chance... that is truly the exception rather than the rule… seriously ringing hands over the back up quarterback seems kinda futile.... The Nick Foles of the world are the absolute exception not the rule....

    Except they actually exist. Foles, Dalton, trubisky, Fitzpatrick have all won games in the league. Are they going to go on a big run? Probably not. Could they get you one or two wins out of three or four games? Yes. Streveler can’t. It’s questionable whether howdy doody can at this stage of his career.

    Dalton didn’t keep the Cowboys afloat or above 500 football so not sure that helps the argument much.... Bottom line is in almost all cases if your starter goes down you aren’t winning anything meaningful. I just think it’s over dramatic whining in general considering the expected result should your starter go down.

    you want your backup to be good enough to play in 2-3 games and win 33-66% of them. in Dallas case, they lost Dak for the whole year and yeah, you are screwed then.

    I never said “afloat” and I never said “.500” but in a league where even one additional win makes a difference (we literally just witnessed that), having a guy like dalton who can get you that single win in limited playing time verses just throwing up your hands and saying “no one will win” like you’re suggesting is . . . well, no offense . . . stupid.

    yeah....if the NFL took the boards opinions on backup QBs, guys like streveler would be everywhere. nothing but project QBs.

    Well, when I say new GM, yes, I mean organizational restructure (at least to a large degree). Some scouts can stay, some can go, but bring in a football mind to give us an outside perspective. We have had internal hires since 1996 when Bob Ferguson took over. That's 25 years of relative front office continuity, and I feel like that's unprecedented for almost any other team. I'd have to do more digging.

    If we fired Keim just to promote Quentin Harris or Adrian Wilson, I'd probably maintain my grumpiness depending on the coaching staff.

    It's sort of like saying an NBA team doesn't need a backup point guard.

    I'm counting on a backup quarterback to be able to competently run the team if the starter gets injured.

    It's not just about winning but an adequate backup quarterback can give a team a short term chance to win.

    We saw what happens when the backup quarterback is Chris Streveler.

    a backup point guard plays every game, right?

    Usually.

    Players need to get some rest during the game. There minimally needs to be distributors on the floor.

    There are no separate offensive and defensive units except for situational substitutions.

    Over the last 10 years how many of our 5th, 6th and 7th draft choice made a contribution or even remained in the Nfl for more than 3 years?
    We can’t hit on our 1st thru 3rd round picks let alone comp picks.

    But that is exactly why having more swings at the plate if beneficial.
    There is only 22 starting jobs, the majority of which are set in stone before the draft. The back half of the draft is to take chance and or develop.
