Five NFL Teams with Severe Quarterback Problems

CLEVELAND BROWNS

Cleveland is the capital of NFL misery.

Robert Griffin is not the answer! No way!

Some experts are inexplicably positive about Griffin’s possibilities of being successful with the Browns after his stay in Washington broke down over 4 seasons.

The Browns signed the 26-year-old Griffin to a two-year, $15 million agreement with $6.7 million ensured on Thursday.

Considering  his fantastic rookie season in 2012, Griffin has actually regressed. He represented 21 touchdowns  and 22 turnovers in 2013-14. The Redskins didn’t even play Griffin in 2014 as Kirk Cousins won the job.

Griffin will likely be out played once more quickly. The Browns should choose a quarterback, most likely California’s Jared Goff, with the 2nd general choice in the draft on April 28. Cleveland ought to get its leading option, unless Tennessee discovers a trade partner ready to go up to No. 1.

Now Griffin should be the coach?

Josh McCown would be much better fit for that function. The 36-year-old McCown tossed 12 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in 8 starts last season for the Browns.

The Browns continue to be in Quarterback Hell. That’s why they’ll be taking a quarterback at No. 2.

Which other teams remain in QB Hell? The Browns have company!

SAN FRANCISCO

Starter: Blaine Gabbert or Colin Kaepernick.

Outlook: The 49ers have actually discovered little interest in attempting to trade Kaepernick. Gabbert, the former Jaguar, began 8  games last season for the 49ers, tossing 10 touchdowns and 7 INTs.

Option: The 49ers have the 7th choice in the draft and need to draft  either Goff, North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz or Memphis’s Paxton Lynch. Exactly what might doom the 49ers is if the Browns take a quarterback, followed by Dallas (No. 4). A team might make an offer with either the Jaguars (No. 5) or Baltimore (No. 6) to jump ahead of San Francisco.

L.A.

Starter: Case Keenum.

Outlook: The 28-year-old Keenum has actually started 15  games in his four-year career, completing 56.7 percent of his passes. He’s represented 16 touchdowns and 14 turnovers.

Option: The Rams have to grab a quarterback in the draft. They might get fortunate and have Lynch available to them at No. 15, however  they may need to trade to get ahead of San Francisco.

DENVER

Starter: Mark Sanchez.

Outlook: Broncos GM John Elway bungled this scenario, permitting Brock Osweiler to sign with Houston after Peyton Manning’s retirement. Elway traded for the substandard Sanchez, and more assistance is required. The 29-year-old Sanchez has actually represented 99 touchdowns with 108 turnovers and is a professional 56.7 percent passer.

Option: The Broncos ought to sign free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick. He’s a journeyman quarterback, however he had the ability to toss 31 TD passes last season for the New York Jets. Let him take on Sanchez!

New York  JETS

Starter: Geno Smith.

Outlook: The Jets have actually revealed a lack of interest in bringing Fitzpatrick back. It’s unexpected, however it tells us they think receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker had more to do with that TD count than Fitzpatrick.

Smith’s season was messed up last year when a colleague broke his jaw in a locker room run-in. Smith, 25, has tossed 27 TDS and 35 picks.
