Kevin Kolb vs John Skeleton..... CARDINALS
Matt Hasselbeck vs Jake Locker..... TITANS
Ryan Tannehil vs David Garrard vs Matt Moore.... DOLPHINS
Blaine Gabbert vs Chad Henne..... JAGUARSTim Tebow vs Mark Sanchez..... JETS
Russel Wilson vs Matt Flynn vs Tavaris Jackson...SEAHAWKS
Some of these may have obvious answers. But ones like Kolb and Skeleton and Hasselbeck and Locker and the Seattle battle keep me intrigued. And below I break those three down.
Kolb I thought was overpaid and that Arizona gave up way too much for a guy who was unproven. I believe in the end Kolb will retain the spot. Not because he is any better than Skeleton who won five games as a starter for Arizona, but because the Cardinals put so much into him.
Hasselbeck is the veteran and has been around for what seems forever. But when he went down last year and Jake Locker stepped in, Locker proved he was worthy of being a top 10 pick. And because he looked sharp at points and that he was drafted in the top 10 I believe he will be the starter. Whether its at the beginning of the season, or by week 6. But having Hasselbeck there to help him along with his progressions.
And as for the three way battle in Seattle...Jackson had his chance so he will be third on the depth chart if not released in training camp. Matt Flynn will start the season as the starter. They way overpaid for a guy who only had one great game in his career. I think this is a Kolb situation. They will test him early, if he doesn't step up and play well and Seattle starts off slow..they will put the exciting player in Wilson on the field. And from the sounds of it..Seattle has been very excited about his play in rookie mini camps.
Most of the talk about the QB battles will be on Sanchez and Tebow. To me, there is nothing to that. Tebow is not a throwing QB. Plain and simple. They brought him in to help with their lack of running game. Sanchez is the starter.
If you have any thoughts on the QB battles and think there is another I missed or you think a different starter will be put in place. Just comment below!
