Jameis Winston ‘s looming suspension puts the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a precarious position of opening the season with a backup quarterback.
Rising receiver Chris Godwin, however, dismissed any notion that teammates would be worried about Ryan Fitzpatrick or Ryan Griffin starting Brian Orakpo Jersey during grueling opening stretch versus the Saints, Eagles and Steelers.
Despite bouncing around the NFL, Fitzpatrick has started at least three http://www.ravensshopfootballonline.com/Authentic-Joe-Flacco-Jersey games since 2008. The trio of starts last season was his fewest since eight in 2009 with the Buffalo Bills. http://www.officialtitanslockerroom.com/elite-brian-orakpo-jersey Fitzy defines journeyman in both his career travels and boom-or-bust nature.
While there remain questions about the run-game rotation, the Bucs boast an envious amount of pass-catching talent to keep the offense afloat with a backup QB. Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson provide a go-to No. 1 target and deep threat. Godwin should make a huge leap in Year 2. Adam Humphries is a chain-mover. Tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate offer big-play ability and red zone acumen.
But Flacco hasn’t been an efficient pocket passer for some time. The 10-year veteran hasn’t finished among the top 15 in quarterback rating since the 2012 campaign.
No one should expect Jackson to step into the lineup and be a better option from the pocket to start his career. Too much is still invested in Flacco. The Joe Flacco Jersey rookie’s athleticism and dynamic arm talent, though, are enough to get him on the field this fall in certain sub-packages.
Gosh, I sure like him out there helping us, head coach John Harbaugh said. If you put two quarterbacks on the field at once, what options does it create for our offense? That’s what we’re trying to figure out.
Jackson is a ready-made offensive boost much like a great NBA sixth man. He can come off the bench and provide fireworks to an offense that lacks playmakers. His blazing speed and flick-of-the-wrist release make him the ultimate change-of-pace in a league constantly looking to create mismatches. Quarterback is often forgotten in that equation. No more.
