    I am going to start a new thread:
    Does Darnold give you the confidence that he can be his own Back-Up QB and QB Coach?

    NOT McCown--he stunk in 3 games last year, and you sign a backup QB to play when your #1 goes down, not to be another QB coach.

    Whoever they get, he can't be a potential "starter in waiting", which will only serve to have Sam looking over his shoulder and be a distraction. Sign someone who can hold the fort until Darnold returns.

    If Darnold can't handle a good backup we picked the wrong QB. And I'm not talking about the backup.

    I think it's time to move on from McCown. When pressed into action, he didn't play great last year and he will be 40 years old this season.

    Give Davis Webb a shot, and bring in a veteran like Blaine Gabbert to compete.

    I'm not saying McCown is any good. I'm saying...

    a) 40 y/o? Who cares? The point is to keep him one more year solely to help steward Sam through the regime change.

    b) Until you're actually contending for a title, what difference does it make how "great" your backup plays?

    Get a 7+ year vet in.

    Someone who can push darnold in the film room.

    If we need to play out 2nd qb were fucked anyway.

    I get your point, but even a self confident player can get unnerved with someone breathing down their neck. Sam's going to have some bad games still, and we don't need the controversy.

    Plus McCown would do a lot for Darnold's development, and I do believe he is actually a decent QB if needed....at the very least experienced and competent.
    I'm hoping he comes back for 1 more year.

    40 at QB isn't really crazy anymore either.
    And we have Webb, who could potentially move past McCown on the depth chart.

    There was a thread here with talk about playoffs. Signing McCown would mean if Darnold missed even a couple weeks, you can say goodbye to any playoff hopes
