Driskell vs Barkley
#1
Being realistic (what MB and ML will most likely do, NOT what the forum thinks they should do), I know it's only been one game, but I'm guessing Driskell won Game 1. Thing about it is, between the 2, it appears Driskell has more to offer?

I like Driskel, he moves well within the pocket and has no problem firing the ball downfield.

Scrap 'em both, and bring back Dan Lefevour.

Doesn't matter. If we're talking about what MB and ML iwll most likely do, well, because Lazor has a history with Barkley, he's going to be the primary backup unless he gets injured or plays like the next coming of Ryan Leaf.

I didn't think either were that good. But then again they are the backup and hopefully we won;t need them. That being said, I was more impressed with Driskel. I appreciated his mobility. It was nice to see him extend the plays and try to make things happen when the plays broke down.

Barkley was horrific out there. Driskell at least tried to play aggressively and it did ultimately work.

It DOES matter because they are the HC and Owner. History or no history, they have the final say so. They might ask for Lazor's opinion, but final say so is up to them.

Unless you are a Cincinnati native and know these guys personally, which is always possible.

Just like whenever folk jump all over Lewis year after year, when the ONLY person accountable for the Lewis era is MB, who has the last say in everything.

Didn't we trade for Driskell and save a roster spot for him? Someone has to be personally invested in this kid. I think he has to be the backup, and yes we are in trouble if 14 goes down

We need to go with the youth and athletic upside.

99% chance Marvin goes with the veteran.

I really dont care. We are screwed either way if one has to start. I just know i will be pissed if we keep both and cut another guy elsewhere

That pretty much applies to most teams except for the Eagles!

Neither one of them set the world on fire last night. But to me Driskel clearly has more to offer.

Is there a backup out there better than both ? I wouldn't doubt it

I'd take Driskel over Barkley without hesitation if those are our only choices.

Barring injuries to all 3, Andy, Barkley and Driscol there's almost zero chance that Woodside becomes the next great 7th round QB to win in the Super bowl.. 
Does anyone remember when we had small college backup 4th string rookie QBs with DUI convictions just step out on the field and go on to greatness ?  Yeah, me either . I know I have some memory loss problems, but they're not THAT severe..  it would be a heck of a story though wouldn't it?

Scrap 'em both and find someone after final cuts.

Because great backup QBs grow on trees and it's harvest season every day!

I would love to see Driskell with the number one's (week 2, sit AD) and then Barkley with them week #3. 

Based on last night, I was not impressed by either one, but the OL and TE's Driskell was working behind was horrible so hard to tell.

If I absolutely had to choose between them it would be Driskell.

Driskel. I prefer the most likely sucks over the most definitely sucks.

I believe that THEY will find some reason to keep Barkley.
