    Getty The Steelers could target Saints QB Taysom Hill via trade. The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking for a new quarterback and it could be one of the best dual-threats in the league. As the Steelers prepare for life after Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh will have two veteran quarterbacks return for next season in Mason Rudolph and Dwyane Haskins. While both quarterbacks have starting experience — 23 combined starts — neither stands out as an appealing option as a full-time starter. Pittsburgh will likely target a rookie quarterback in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft, but they’ll need a starter ready to step in for the season opener. As the New Orleans Saints enter a full-scale rebuild following head coach Sean Payton stepping down, they’ll need to trade several of their key players to trim down their payroll. According to Over the Cap, the Saints are $74 million over the cap, $34 million more than the next closest team. One of those players — Taysom Hill — is a candidate for the Steelers, according to NFL.com’s Nick Shook....
    Former Texas quarterback Todd Dodge is urging Longhorns fans to be wary of starting Quinn Ewers right away as a freshman. There seems a very good chance that Texas football will be helmed by freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers in 2022. The Ohio State transfer has won the job yet, but he’s the favorite to start. For many Longhorns fans, that’s the ideal scenario. However, former quarterback Todd Dodge isn’t so convinced. Dodge appeared on The Flagship Podcast and spoke about his concerns about starting such a young quarterback. “I believe that universities all across America are getting really fired up about true freshman. They’ve got to calm down a bit,” Dodge said. “It is not in the best interest of your football team if you are starting a true freshman. I don’t care how good he is.” Dodge wants to remind Texas fans that Ewers is essentially a true freshman. He may have entered college last year but he didn’t play and that season just took the place of his senior year of high school. He acknowledged the likes...
    Getty The Steelers could make a run at 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo. The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely be on the search for a new quarterback this offseason. Although the Steelers are coming off a playoff campaign in 2021, they’ll be forced to fill the void left by the 39-year-old Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger is expected to call it a career after 18 seasons in Pittsburgh. That means the Steelers will have a permanent starting quarterback other than Roethlisberger for the first time since the 2003 season. The Steelers could go a number of routes as they search for their next franchise quarterback. While they could very well go with a quarterback in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft — they hold the No. 20 overall pick — the Steelers could also go the more dependable route of acquiring a veteran quarterback. According to Pro Football Network’s Dallas Robinson, the Steelers could target San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Although Garoppolo has led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game and also led San Francisco to the Super...
    Getty Images Mitchell Trubisky of the Buffalo Bills. The Cleveland Browns will explore their options at the quarterback position this offseason and a name that is repeatedly linked to the AFC North squad is Buffalo Bills backup Mitch Trubisky. Browns insider Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com broke down Trubisky as a possibility in her Q&A column this week, saying the one-time Pro Bowler could be an option brought in to push Mayfield from the backup position. Trubisky could be a possible option for the Browns depending on how they approach the position in the offseason. I believe they’ll explore possibilities at quarterback because they’d be remiss not to. Some quality veteran will be available, including several that might make sense for them. If they don’t go all in on a new starter, they could opt for a backup such as Trubisky who has starting potential. There will be some others in this category who provide competition but aren’t an immediate threat. As Cabot notes, the Browns have to see who is available first before setting a game plan....
    A Miami Dolphins defender took an anonymous shot at Tua Tagovailoa, who he hopes isn’t the future signal-caller in South Beach. The former first-round pick out of Alabama is far from a unanimous choice to come back as Dolphins starting quarterback next season. To be fair, Tagovailoa hasn’t shown a ton of promise in his first few NFL seasons, instead making incremental improvements. That sort of pace is no longer allotted in today’s NFL, and the Dolphins haven’t seen enough from Tua to allow him to enter the offseason as the comfortable starting QB in Miami. Even Tagovailoa’s own teammates, including one prominent defender, feel as though they can only go so far with the Alabama product as their starting quarterback. “He can’t make every throw,” a Dolphins defender told Omar Kelly. “He’s only going to take us so far. I’m wasting my career here if that’s what we’re doing!” Whos the only prominent defender thats still here from the pre covid days that would still have a private line of communication with Omar. These are exact quotes even...
    Getty A pair of ex-New York Jets quarterbacks talking shop ahead of an NFL game. One of the all-time fan favorite players in recent New York Jets history is veteran quarterback Josh McCown. The longtime NFL journeyman has played for 12 different NFL franchises since entering the league way back in 2002. While he was only with the green and white for two seasons, his impact on the team went far beyond that. McCown played in 17 games and threw for 3,465 passing yards, had a 19-to-13 touchdown to interception ratio, and had a 64.5 percent completion percentage. Although he was most well known for being the bridge quarterback prior to Sam Darnold arriving and being that veteran presence during his rookie campaign.

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said this week he will be exploring "all options" for a quarterback next season, but backup Dwayne Haskins believes he has what it takes to be a starter.  Haskins, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, told reporters Wednesday that he is confident in his abilities despite what he’s shown so far.  STEELERS’ MIKE TOMLIN: ‘ALL OPTIONS’ ON THE TABLE AT QB IN 2022 "I definitely feel like I could be a starter in this league. I got drafted for that reason," he said, via the NFL Network. "I definitely believe I have talent to play with the best of them, but really, I just haven't put it all together yet. And that's something I have to do this offseason in order to put myself in that position to play."

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles say Jalen Hurts will be the team’s starting quarterback in 2022. “We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really as a first-year starter and second-year player, and leading this team to the playoffs,” general manager Howie Roseman said Wednesday, just three days after a 31-15 loss at Tampa Bay in the wild-card round. “I’m tremendously impressed by his work ethic and his leadership. The last time we talked was during camp and we said we wanted to see him take the bull by the horn, and he certainly did that.” Of course, despite answering “yes” twice on questions about Hurts returning as the starter, Roseman could change his mind. If an attractive option emerges in the coming months through trade or the draft, the Eagles can still pursue another QB, and explain that circumstances changed. Last year at this time, as Nick Sirianni was being hired to coach, Roseman and Sirianni said their preference was to work things out with veteran quarterback Carson Wentz, who had been benched in favor...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Jalen Hurts has shown the Eagles enough to come back as their starter in 2022, at least that is what general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Nick Sirianni said Wednesday. Time will tell if Hurts comes back as the team’s clear-cut No. 1 QB, or if Roseman brings in another quarterback to compete with the third-year signal-caller or even acquires an established star, but as it stands three days after the Birds’ season ended in Tampa, the 23-year-old is in the team’s plans for 2022.

I thought he did a great job of getting better throughout the year, as we’ve talked about, and so there’s no secrets here. He knows he’s our guy.” When asked if he’s comfortable with Hurts as the Birds’ starting quarterback, Roseman said, “Yes.” “We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really as a first-year...
    Getty The Seahawks could add one of the top offensive tackles in the game. The Seattle Seahawks could potentially make a major move to bolster the offensive line. In an attempt to appease Russell Wilson — who is currently facing trade rumors — the Seahawks could add a major piece at tackle to help protect Wilson. According to Brent Sobleski of Bleacher Report, the Seahawks could make a run at 2019 Pro Bowl selection Trent Brown. The 28-year-old has experience starting at both tackle positions. He manned the left tackle position for the New England Patriots when they won the Super Bowl in 2018 and he currently patrols the right side for the Patriots. “The Seattle Seahawks’ offseason will hinge on whether the organization keeps Russell Wilson,” said Sobleski. “The quarterback could force his way out of the Great Northwest, which would change the direction of the entire franchise. The Seahawks should do what it takes to make him happy—i.e. investing in the blockers in front of him. The market won’t be flooded with many significant O-line upgrades....

(Photo by Alex Trautwig/Getty Images) The Denver Broncos regular-season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs may seem meaningless in the grand scheme of things. However, it’s one last chance this season for some players to show what they’re capable of on the field. Perhaps no player has a more significant opportunity than Denver quarterback Drew Lock. Lock, a second-round pick by the Broncos in the 2019 NFL draft, has one year remaining on his rookie deal which expires at the end of the 2022 season, per Spotrac. With the possibility of significant changes on the horizon for the organization, Lock’s role with the Broncos moving forward is yet to be determined. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what could lie ahead for Lock, whether it be a starting job, a spot on the sidelines,...
    Baker Mayfield responds on Twitter to a report he would request a trade away from the Cleveland Browns. Four years into Baker Mayfield’s tenure as the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback has been nothing short of chaotic. The former No. 1 overall pick and Heisman Trophy winner out of Oklahoma has had good moments in Cleveland. He has been arguably the best quarterback the Browns have had since Bernie Kosar, which is not saying much. However, there is reported growing tension within the organization and there is a belief the Browns could be looking to move off him this offseason. Here is Mayfield clapping back at Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com for her reporting on the developing situation in Cleveland. “Don’t put words in my mouth so you can put food your table. I’m not your puppet,” is not going to land well with the Browns’ brass one bit. Clickbait. You and many other Cleveland local media continue to be drama stirring reporters with no sources or facts.

    Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett doesn’t think it’s his job to carry the hopes of fans on his shoulders. Bennett and the Bulldogs will play Alabama in the national title game this upcoming Monday, and Georgia is hoping like hell it can avoid a repeat of the embarrassing SEC title game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Well, that means the team’s starting quarterback will likely have to play lights out, but he’s trying to not let the pressure get to him.

    Getty Giants quarterback Mike Glennon needs season-ending wrist surgery, paving the way for Jake Fromm to make his second career NFL start in the final game of the regular season. Following starting quarterback Daniel Jones’ season-ending neck injury, the New York Giants have been forced to roll with backups Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm, who have been disastrous. First, it was Glennon, who led the team to a dismal 0-3 record in December. As a result, Fromm relieved him of his duties, but struggled immensely in his first career NFL start in Week 16. That’s when New York went back to their initial No. 2 quarterback in Glennon. Now, they will have to lean on Fromm once again in their season finale against the Washington Football Team on January 9, but not by choice. On Monday, January 3, head coach Joe Judge announced that Glennon suffered a left wrist injury that will require season-ending surgery. Joe Judge says Mike Glennon hurt his wrist yesterday. Will require surgery and he will miss Week 18. — Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) January...
    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance completed 16-of-23 passes for 249 yards with two touchdowns in his first start at Levi’s Stadium. The 49ers defeated the Houston Texans 23-7, with Lance’s counterpart, fellow rookie Davis Mills from Stanford, having only 98 passing yards entering the final minutes of garbage time, finishing with 163 yards. Lance, the No. 3 overall draft pick, benefitted from stellar showings by Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Elijah Mitchell, George Kittle, and, most helpful, the 49ers’ defense, which turned things around on Marcell Harris’ third-quarter interception. Unlike his 16-carry onslaught in losing his starting debut Oct. 10 at Arizona, Lance did not run all that much, carrying eight times for 31 yards. “Besides the bad interception, he protected the ball real well and that was a big thing going into this game,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said. “He was very efficient. The play at the end (Samuel’s touchdown) was huge, and, for the most part, he made good decisions throwing the ball.” Bay Area News Group’s Cam Inman contributed to this report. SANTA...
    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — When it comes to being coy about personnel in order to gain a tactical advantage, clearly it’s like father, like son in the Iowa football program. Following a week of preparations for Saturday’s Citrus Bowl in which Hawkeyes’ offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz repeatedly refused to name a starting quarterback, head coach Kirk Ferentz coyly did the same on Friday. No. 17 Iowa (10-3) heads into its showdown against No. 25 Kentucky (9-3) without a definitive, named starter under center — a somewhat odd occurrence for a 10-win team that climbed as high as No. 2 in the country in early October before a midseason tumble. “I guess you’ll know at one o’clock (on Saturday) – probably before that, actually,” the elder Ferentz said of Iowa’s choices at quarterback between junior Spencer Petras and sophomore Alex Padilla — both of whom earned starts this season. “I really don’t think it’s that big a deal. I know it is to everybody, but we have faith in both guys. Our goal is to play good team offense, hopefully move...
    The Chicago Bears will play their final home game Sunday against the New York Giants at Soldier Field. As of Thursday afternoon, the team still wasn’t ready to publicly announce its starting quarterback. With the Bears favored for just the fourth time in 16 games, an opportunity is there to build on the 25-24 win in Seattle on Sunday. Here are three things we learned Thursday. 1. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton could have the inside track toward starting Sunday. For the second consecutive day, Dalton was a full participant in practice, making it clear he has recovered from the groin injury that forced him out of action Sunday. Rookie Justin Fields, meanwhile, remained limited with an ankle issue. That could lead Matt Nagy and his coaching staff to give Dalton the nod for Sunday afternoon. Nagy wasn’t available to reporters Thursday. And offensive coordinator Bill Lazor steered around questions about the quarterback situation when he spoke with the media before practice. Asked what he learned from Wednesday’s on-field work and where the Bears might be leaning with their...

    Getty The Steelers could target Marcus Mariota as a bridge quarterback. The Pittsburgh Steelers could look to an unlikely player to be their next starting quarterback. As Pittsburgh braces for life after Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers will likely have to find a new quarterback for the 2022 season. Pittsburgh will have a number of options to choose from when it comes to the NFL draft, trading for a veteran quarterback, or simply signing one to be a “bridge” replacement. Two of the top quarterbacks potentially on the market will be the Green Bay Packers‘ Aaron Rodgers and the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson. However, there’s a chance that both players do stay put.

    Getty Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson attempts a pass against the Cleveland Browns on December 12.

    The Ravens are in an enviable position, possibly one of the best in sports. At the beginning of the season, they were one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers. And now they are barely the favorite to win the AFC North. The general assumption is that even if the Ravens get into the postseason, they won’t go far. It’ll be one-and-done. That’s why this season has become fun. The pressure is off. To keep this all in perspective, consider what the coaching staff has done to keep the Ravens in first place in the division with four regular-season games remaining after losing two starting running backs and a Pro Bowl left tackle. And that’s just on offense. On defense, the Ravens are currently without two starting defensive ends, two starting safeties and two Pro Bowl cornerbacks. So, in at least three of the four remaining games against the Packers, Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens...
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas quarterback Casey Thompson, who started 10 games and passed for 24 touchdowns this season, entered the transfer portal Friday. Thompson is leaving after former Ohio State quarterback Quinn Ewers, one of the top-rated players in the country when he came out of high school after the 2020 season, transferred to Texas. Texas also signed quarterback Maalik Murphy of Gardena, California, and Longhorns coach Steve Sarkisian said the position would be open ahead of the 2022 season. Thompson, an Oklahoma City native, will be a graduate transfer. Thompson was the backup to Hudson Card for the first two game before taking over the starting role. He passed for 2,113 yards as Texas finished 5-7 in a season the program had its first five-game losing streak since 1956. Thompson’s six touchdowns passes in an overtime loss to Kansas tied a school record. He had two other games with five TD passes, but also had a mid-season thumb injury that appeared to affect his throwing in several games. Thompson’s departure leaves Texas with little experience at...
    Getty The Steelers could go with Mason Rudolph as the starting QB for 2022. Many expect this to be Ben Roethlisberger’s last season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. A report indicates Roethlisberger expects this to be his last season in Pittsburgh and their playoff hopes are fading following their latest loss. If Roethlisberger retires or the Steelers allow Big Ben to walk, many draft experts expect Pittsburgh to draft a quarterback in the first round — such as University of Pittsburgh prospect Kenny Pickett. However, according to longtime Steelers insider Mark Madden, he doesn’t expect that to be the case. While appearing on the “Madden Monday” podcast, Madden not only expects the Steelers to pass on drafting a quarterback in the first round, he expects Pittsburgh to go with Mason Rudolph as their quarterback for the 2022 season. “I don’t think they’ll go quarterback in the first round,” Madden predicted. “I think they’ll let Mason Rudolph start the year and see how he does. I think you’ve got to go offensive line in the first round. But they’ve screwed...
    Kedon Slovis, USC Trojans. (Mandatory Credit: Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports) Former USC Trojans starting quarterback Kedon Slovis has entered the transfer portal. With the USC football program in a bit of transition under new head coach Lincoln Riley, former Trojans starting quarterback Kedon Slovis has opted to enter the transfer portal this offseason. The under-recruited signal-caller from Scottsdale, Arizona put up strong numbers over the course of three seasons in Los Angeles. While his time at USC coincided with the eventual downfall of former head coach Clay Helton, Slovis more than demonstrated he can be a quality starting quarterback in Division I.

Death, taxes and bad starting quarterback play before the sun goes down on NFL Sunday. One would think we’ve hit a saturation point at the most important position on the field. With players entering the league with so many banked reps before hand, it would have to pay off at some point, right?

    A pair of Clemson football players are hitting the transfer portal in backup quarterback Taisun Phommachanh and wide receiver Frank Ladson. Taisun Phommachanh and Frank Ladson are the latest Clemson football players to enter the transfer portal. The usual ACC juggernaut went 9-3 this season. While down years happen, it makes sense as to why these two players are leaving the Clemson Family. As Grace Raynor of The Athletic reports, Phommachanh may see his chances of playing at Clemson slipping away with five-star Cade Klubnik coming in, as well as the Tigers’ hot pursuit of landing five-star Arch Manning for 2023. As for Ladson, injuries derailed his promising potential at Clemson. He has been out since October after undergoing season-ending groin surgery. Between five-star QB Cade Klubnik coming in for 2022 and Clemson pursuing Arch Manning for 2023, the Phommachanh news makes sense. Ladson, a former four-star, never got to play up to his potential, in large part because of injuries.

    DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff is active against the Chicago Bears on Thursday. Goff was listed as questionable to play after missing Sunday’s three-point loss at Cleveland with a oblique injury. Detroit left third-string quarterback David Blough inactive, leaving the team with Tim Boyle as Goff’s backup. Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is inactive for a second straight game with a hamstring injury. The Bears will have their starting safeties Eddie Jackson and Tashaun Gipson in the lineup after both were questionable to play. Chicago previously ruled out rookie quarterback Justin Fields, who was hurt during last Sunday’s loss to Baltimore. Defensive tackle Akiem Hicks was also ruled out because of an ankle injury before the Bears arrived in Detroit, another setback for a line without Khalil Mack, who went on injured reserve last week. The Lions previously ruled out starting guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai, starting outside linebacker Trey Flowers and reserve defensive back A.J.

    Getty Bears chairman George McCaskey calls the report of Matt Nagy's firing a "complete lie." Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey is shutting down the rumors of head coach Matt Nagy being fired. Following a report that claims Nagy will be fired following the team’s Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions, the Bears chairman is saying the report is a “complete lie,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “Where it stands with Matt Nagy before today’s game vs. Detroit: George McCaskey and Ted Phillips both told him this week’s report was a ‘complete lie,’ per sources. Nagy has not been told by anyone he’s being fired. McCaskey spoke to team Weds, and told players what he told Nagy.” The Bears are currently at a record of 3-7 following a five-game losing streak. Calls for Nagy’s firing have been heard throughout local sports events around the Chicago area, including a Chicago Bulls game, Nagy’s son’s high school football game and an AEW event this past Wednesday. Nagy — in the midst of his fourth season with the Bears — denied the...

No, but it doesn’t get much worse than Goff. It’s painful watching him play football. An injury update from @jaredgoff16. pic.twitter.com/DjOtVUaAZT —...
    Zach Wilson is back under center for the New York Jets. After missing several games because a knee injury suffered back in week seven, the former BYU superstar will start at quarterback against the Texans, according to Connor Hughes.

    Bo Nix reportedly broke his ankle and will miss the rest of the Auburn football season. After blowing a 28-3 lead to the Mississippi State and then losing the game, the Auburn football team will be without starting quarterback Bo Nix for the rest of the season. Nix reportedly suffered a broken ankle in the brutal collapse to the Bulldogs. Upon arriving in Auburn as a true freshman two years ago, Nix had been the Tigers’ starting quarterback. While he has been inconsistent at times, he does more good than bad with the ball in his hands. He was starting to come into his own in Mike Bobo’s offense playing for new head coach Bryan Harsin. Auburn is 6-4 on the year with two SEC games remaining: at South Carolina and home vs. Alabama in Iron Bowl. The Tigers also are bowl eligible and will play a 13th game this season.Bo Nix injury: Who is Auburn’s backup QB?So with Nix down for the count, that means his backup TJ Finley will be getting the final three starts of the season for...
    These three college football quarterbacks may need to ride some pine after how Week 11 went. With the high-stakes nature of many college football games, some starting quarterbacks fail to play well on the big stage in these huge moments. They may look good in practice and have all the measurables, but when it is go time, sometimes, these guys do not deliver. For some signal-callers, it can be a tough spot on the road against a worthy adversary in an isolated incident. But for others, it has been a long time coming. Most of these schools have a capable quarterback chilling on the bench waiting for his number to be called.

    NEW YORK (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is expected to return to practice this week and could start again as soon as Sunday against Buffalo. Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Wilson would be the team’s starting quarterback when he was fully healthy, ending speculation whether the rookie might have to sit behind backup Mike White even when his knee healed. Wilson has missed two games with a sprained posterior collateral ligament in his right knee. Saleh said the team will decide by Wednesday who will start the home game against the Bills so the starter can get all of the snaps with the first-team offense during preparations. The coach cautioned that Wilson will not play unless his knee is completely healed. That means there’s still a good chance White could start a third straight game.

Darnold said that he’s “fully aware I didn’t play my best football today” and the outing continued an extended stretch of rocky play for Darnold. He’s thrown 10 interceptions as the Panthers have slumped from 3-0 to 4-5 on the season, which has some to wonder about a quarterback change. Darnold said after the game that he hasn’t been told of any change. “As far as I know, I’m the starting quarterback,” Darnold said, via Darin Gantt of the team’s website. Panthers head coach Matt Rhule will be the man making the decision on a change under center. He said wants to watch tape before making any decisions, but added “we can’t...
    Voters and public officials choose police reform in moderation after George Floyds murder Sudan anti-coup protesters block streets There are a lot of teams that have struggled to find a franchise quarterback over the years. The Browns had famously employed a quarterback carousel since the Bernie Kosar days before Baker Mayfield arrived. The Washington Football Team has rotated through different quarterbacks since Joe Theismann broke his leg on that famous Lawrence Taylor sack. And let's not forget the Jets, who have used a variety of stopgap veterans and young, potential-packed starters over the last couple of decades.

In 2018, a concussion sustained early in the season opened the door for rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield to take over as the full-time starter with the Cleveland Browns. In 2021, an early season injury led to a rookie quarterback, Davis Mills, getting a chance to prove himself in Taylor’s place with the Houston Texans. But unlike those prior two instances, Taylor is jumping back into his starting job after recovering from a hamstring injury that has forced him to miss the last six games for the Texans. “Coach [Culley] said early on that I would be the starter when healthy and thankful that he stood by that,” Taylor said, via Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com. Taylor said that...

Tyrod Taylor has been out of the Houston Texans' lineup since Week 2 due to a hamstring injury. On Sunday, the veteran quarterback is expected to make his return. During  Thursday's press conference, Texans head coach David Culley said that Taylor is healthy and will start against the Miami Dolphins.  "He's healthy," Culley said, according to Aaron Wilson of SportsTalk 790AM. "He's our starting quarterback." Prior to the injury against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2, Taylor completed 70.5 percent of his pass attempts, had 416 passing yards, three touchdown passes and zero interceptions. Rookie quarterback Davis Mills filled in as the starting quarterback for Houston during Taylor's absence. Though he showed a lot of potential at times, the Stanford product needs more time to develop his game.  Mills had 1,357 passing yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions as the Texans' starting quarterback.

    Getty Dak Prescott's injury doesn't appear to be a long-term one. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is giving a ringing endorsement of his backup. As the Cowboys possibly prepare for a Week 8 matchup without their franchise quarterback, they might have to do so with Cooper Rush — a fifth-year quarterback who has thrown just three pass attempts in his career. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Prescott endorsed Rush during a meeting on Saturday, October 30. The Cowboys quarterback told teammates that Rush is “my guy.” “Dak told teammates, ‘If I can’t go, this is my guy. Cooper’s got you,'” said Pelissero. Rush would be starting in his first NFL game. The former undrafted free agent hasn’t thrown a pass in a game since Week 10 of the 2017 season. While it’s still unclear whether or not Prescott will suit up for Sunday night’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, one thing is certain — if Prescott can’t go in Week 9, he’ll be good to start next week versus the Denver Broncos, according to Pelissero. “Dak’s...

That’s how intense it gets you know. Me and coach Taylor have a great relationship, you know I love coach Taylor, as well as his son Mason. We get along very well,” Turner told CBS4’s Mike Cugno.

    SANTA CLARA — Long story short, here is my weekly 49ers’ mailbag, now that I’ve squeegeed out all the Instagram and Twitter questions after Sunday night’s loss: If Trey Lance is healthy, does he start against Chicago? I know Kyle is hesitant to throw him out there but can it really be much worse than what we are seeing from Jimmy? (@eastcoast49ers) Jimmy Garoppolo remains the 49ers’ starter heading into Sunday’s visit to Chicago, near his hometown of Arlington Heights and some four years after his 49ers’ starting debut at Soldier Field. Now, if Lance were healthy, there’d be a bigger debate. Instead, coach Kyle Shanahan is also offering a few snaps if Lance makes it through practice this week in his first action since an Oct. 10 knee sprain. We don’t look like a well-run team, top to bottom. What changes are coming? (@bright101) No changes at the top, from ownership to the head coach, general manager and even starting quarterback. Shanahan won’t pull the trigger on a youth movement until a playoff bid evaporates....
    The 49ers aren’t planning to make a quarterback change with head coach Kyle Shanahan standing by Jimmy Garoppolo as the starter. Kyle Shanahan lives by the creed: Even if it’s broken, don’t fix it. That’s the only way to explain the 49ers head coach and his insistence on sticking with Jimmy Garoppolo after Sunday night’s loss to the Colts. Shanahan told reporters on Monday that Garoppolo will start against the Bears this weekend despite Trey Lance returning from injury, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic.Jimmy Garoppolo will remain the 49ers starting quarterbackIncredibly, that declaration came while Shanahan admitted that Garoppolo “had his worst game yesterday,” via Niners Nation. Garoppolo went 16-of-27 for 181 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in the primetime loss to the Colts. He also lost a fumble. He could blame the terrible weather for part of the performance. A major storm hit Santa Clara and brought with it pouring rain and high winds. Shanahan said Garoppolo wasn’t a single bad game away from losing his starting job. The trouble is it hasn’t been just one bad...
    Getty Former Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco celebrates his team's victory in Super Bowl XLVII in 2013. Former Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the New York Jets following an injury to their starting quarterback, rookie Zach Wilson. The trade, first reported by NFL Networks’ Mike Garafolo, sees Flacco return to the Jets, for whom he started four games, all losses, last season. He signed with the Eagles back in March but has yet to play a down this season while serving as backup to starting quarterback Jalen Hurts. His familiarity with the Jets’ offense means that he could start in New York as soon as Sunday, where they take on the Cincinnati Bengals, who trounced Flacco’s former team on Sunday. While Flacco is best known for his immaculate play during the Ravens’ 2012 Super Bowl run, when he was named MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, the past few seasons have been less kind to the former first-round pick. A hip injury in 2018 cost him his starting job in Baltimore,...
    Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs. (USA Today) These three NFL starting quarterback played badly enough in Week 7 to merit being benched. The NFL is an unforgiving league, and when your starting quarterback plays terribly, everyone will call you out. Not everybody is fortunate enough to have Aaron Rodgers as their main man under center, nor are they lucky enough to have a team without a loss on the season like the Arizona Cardinals. However, there are a few teams who are underperforming in recent weeks because of horrendous quarterback play. These signal-callers absolutely did not get it done for their teams in Week 7.
