Default QB competition for Carr?

Let's help Mr. McNair here. I assume Carr's staying, but lord knows he could use a little competition. So: what FA (or trade, for that matter) QB would you bring in to push Carr? Has to be a QB who could run the team and be a starter if he actually beat Carr out of the position.

Competition for the members of the offensive line is what's really needed.

I'd go with Kitna though he was horrible in the Bengals loss to the Chiefs

Reggie McNeal will be lucky to get drafted after the stunt he pulled at the end of last season where he was going to be the starter against Texas but didnt show up to any of the team meetings.

He is the franchise signal caller and in a new system will put up numbers similar to carson Palmer. Yeah I said it. Banks should be gone, Ragone you are the backup and whoever the best QB in the 7th round is that is my guy.

And so for yet another year, Carr will not be challenged in training camp and will not have anyone to push him.

He will finally have QB coach and a HC to push him. That is who he will have. I have no problem with a QB not having competition when he is your guy, and in case you have not noticed Carr is our guy.

if we get kubiak, which looks like the most fesable option at the moment, look for Plummer like number, minus the stupid INT's. That sort of production (20-25 Td's with 10 INT's coupled with DD and Wells/Morency giving us a solid running game (i am theorzing we go the D'Brick/trade down route) and we should have a top 10 offense. also, having a good O takes pressure off the D, minimizing the other teams running game, all in all, a HUGE upgrade over what we had this season....

PS: how about some blitzes and man coverage this season? hell ya!!!

RDR you have actually done your homework. And just think he can throw the ball deep to guys like Andre and Mathis that wont consistently drop the rock like Ashley Lelie and Darius Watts.

This is exactly why he has regressed... there is no threat of him getting benched so he's had nothing to worry about. If dude was on any other team in the NFL he would have been sat down a dozen times over the past 25 games.

It's human nature to do better when someone is pushing you then when you've been handed the job, that's all I'm saying. Almost every other QB in the league had to win his job and beat out a vet except Carr. Palmer is the guy in Cinci put even he had to wait because he couldnt beat on Kitna. Big Ben wasnt the QB in Pittsburg until the starter went down with an injury.

You can still be the guy and have competition.

AJ dropped a lot of balls this year and Mathis dropped a few of he small selection. After this season, I wouldnt say that AJ and Mathis have better hands then Lelie and Watts.

I would, and I did. Lelie is known for his drops and Watts like AJ had the dropsies this year. Carr regressed if you will because the system he played in is terrible. I mean is Plummer a better QB or is the system he is in now just fit him better. A QB that has competition does by no means mean that you are going to do better. There are more people that fold under competition than do well. That is human nature and fact.

So you are scared that Carr may fold under competition/pressure???

If my QB cant handle competition, i dont want him leading the 2 minute drive down by 4 starting from his 20 yard line.
