The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NFL Teams with the 5 Worst Quarterback Situations Entering 2019

NFL Teams with the 5 Worst Quarterback Situations Entering 2019

Who has the worst quarterback scenario?

While many teams are enjoying success behind Pro Bowl quarterbacks, some teams are just prolonging inevitable rebuilds or failing in the process of one right now. Specifically, it looks like these five teams will be cursed with poor quarterback play for the 2019 season. Unless someone unexpectedly emerges as a star, expect these teams to take steps to bring about change in 2020.

Remember, this is a list for the 2019 season. It doesn’t necessarily mean that a team’s quarterback situation will remain bad in the future.

Dishonorable mention- Indianapolis Colts

Jacoby Brissett was the best quarterback heading into the opening week of the preseason. Now, he’s a mediocre to below average starter. I expected Brissett would eventually become a starter on some other team, but this development has to be disheartening for Colts fans. They’ll rally behind Brissett, but they expected to have Andrew Luck at quarterback this year. Luck was thrown around in some MVP discussions this offseason before his surprising retirement. The Colts now have no quarterback depth, unless you count Chad Kelly and Phillip Walker as quality backups.

Dishonorable mention- Jacksonville Jaguars

I can’t tell if Jacksonville of Philadelphia Eagles fans will be more upset with this selection. Nick Foles seems to have all of the answers when it comes to end of the regular season and the playoffs, but can he put together a solid 16-game season? The last time he started ten or more games was with the then St. Louis Rams in 2015. Foles played in 11 games and threw ten interceptions to just seven touchdowns. You don’t want to know who Foles’ backups are. Even if I told you, you’ve never heard of them.

5. Washington Redskins

The Redskins are in an interesting mess. Alex Smith is attempting to return to football after a gruesome leg injury that subsequently was infected, but he will miss the entire 2019 season. Colt McCoy is rehabbing from his own leg injury, a fractured right fibula, and he might not be cleared by the start of the season. The team traded for Case Keenum back in March. Keenum is on his fourth team in four years. With the Denver Broncos last season, Keenum threw 15 interceptions and 18 touchdowns while completing 62.3% of his passes. Keenum isn’t a bad, he’s just mediocre.

Washington also has rookie, 15th overall pick, Dwayne Haskins on the roster. Haskins had a tremendous 2018 season with Ohio St., but it seems like the team is leaning toward starting Keenum in Week 1. That’s a smart move and could pay off long-term for the team, but 2019 isn’t looking too bright for the Redskins.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay patience in Jameis Winston is waning. Winston has been paired with Bruce Arians in an attempt to revive the former Heisman winner’s career. Last season, Winston served a three-game suspension and then lost some starting time to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Entering his fifth season in the NFL, Winston no longer inspires the hope that he did as a rookie. He will be a free agent after the season. His backups include failed 2011 tenth overall pick, Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin.

3. Cincinnati Bengals

The day of reckoning is closing in on Andy Dalton. The 2011 second round pick has started. For Cincinnati since he entered the NFL and has missed just eight starts during that time. However, the Bengals haven’t had a winning record in three years and have never won a playoff game under Dalton. In the past two seasons, Dalton has thrown for fewer than 250 yards per game and completed under 62% of his passes. Cincinnati’s main backup quarterbacks are Jeff Driskel and Ryan Finley.

2. Tennessee Titans

The Titans have two serviceable quarterbacks on their roster in Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill. Mariota, the second overall pick in the 2015 draft, is set to start heading into 2019. Mariota has been dogged by injuries recently and they have contributed to his poor outings in 2017 and 2018. In 2017, Mariota threw more interceptions (15) than touchdowns (13). Last season, Mariota threw eight interceptions and 11 touchdowns. He averaged just 180.6 passing yards per game.

Tannehill is fully expected to be Tennessee’s backup for the entire season, but he has extensive starting experience should Mariota be injured or benched. Tannehill was the eighth overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Miami Dolphins. He started 88 games with the organization but dealt with injuries and inconsistency in his final years with the team. Both quarterbacks are mediocre at best.

1. Miami Dolphins

Fitzmagic could throw together a good four or five-game stretch, but that’s about all I’d expect from the Dolphins quarterbacks this year. Fitzpatrick went 2-5 in seven starts with the Buccaneers last season. He appeared in eight games and averaged 295.8 yards per game. The veteran quarterback is going on age 37 and seems like he has the edge to win the starting job heading into the year.

Miami’s other option is Josh Rosen. The tenth overall pick last year, Rosen flunked out of Arizona quickly. He didn’t have the support necessary to succeed in the desert in the first place, but his play was less than expiring. Rosen threw 14 interceptions to 11 touchdowns and completed 55.2% of his passes. Is he the future of the franchise? Either way, good luck Miami.
