Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

Ranking each team's No. 2 quarterback - Don Banks - SI.com

Seriously, has this clown seen any of our games this preseason?

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

We could definitely be worse off than ol' TC, but best in the NFL? I'm thinking there's at least 5-10 better out there.

Now, I'd say TC is definitely the best in an Al Saunders' system, but that's not the case anymore...

Yeah if Saunders were still here, I'd agree. But he's not.

I'd still put TC in the top 10 though, if not top 5.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

Despite his "struggles" his numbers are pretty good this preseason especially considering he works mainly with the backups. I'm pretty confident that if called upon #15 would be solid.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

I'd have to rank Trent Green, concussions and all, higher. He's back w/ Al Saunders and he knows the system.

TC is top10 no doubt, maybe top 5, but i have a hard time believing he's the best backup out there. TC has had an OK preseason but i'm not sure he fits into an offense like this. TC is like a statue back there. If he would only sense the pocket collapsing and step up or move around a little. The accuracy is there, the mobility not so much.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

Well hey give the guy some credit he did know we are now running a WC offense. Maybe he has seen the way JC is holding the ball and taking hits so he thinks Todd has the #1 chance of seeing playing time.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

It's funny, whenever one of our player gets some nice props people want to knock them down. But whenever we feel they got "dissed" we're up in arms over it. You just can't win.

The fact that Colt Brennan isn't listed #1 clearly demonstrates his lack of knowledge.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

I am a TC believer but I think the notion that he can execute the WCO better than Campbell is foolish. He is immobile and straight away that is a key compenent of the offense. I have a firm belief that in a pinch he can win us games but that is predicated on a belief that Zorn can gameplan the offense to fit Collins' strengths. If Campbell can just get some confidence he is going to be good. Right now he doesn't seem confident enough to make some of the throws that he can surely make which is why he seems to hold the ball too long. He's gotta drop back. Find the little opening and slam it in rather than waiting for a wide open reciever.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

Wow, so many former Redskins playing second fiddle.

Gus Frerotte, Mark Brunell, Patrick Ramsey, Brad Johnson, Sage Rosenfels, and Trent Green.

Re: Todd Collins: Best Backup QB in the NFL?

I think TC is a top 5 back-up. But the best back-up in the NFL is Kerry Collins. I think he's better than half the current starters in the league. He's better than the starter on his own team! I just don't understand why a team like Baltimore doesn't just go out and get a guy like Kerry Collins.

It's about being right, not about feeling slighted.

TC is not the best backup QB in the NFL; it's a straight-up disagreement with Don Banks. That's all it is.
