If every team's starting quarterback were placed on injured reserve, who survies?
 
This would be an interesting scenario given how important the position is. I'd like to think the Texans would still be okay. I was fairly impressed with TJ Yates as a rookie and expect to get a little better as time goes on.

Seattle would be interesting with Matt Flynn. I think the 49ers would be in trouble with Kaepernick.

tjsunstein 11-18-2012 08:07 PM

Not Green Bay.

Give me the New York Jets.

BuckeyeDan17 11-18-2012 08:10 PM

This is tough. Chicago might have a shot with Campbell and their defense being insane this year. I was thinking maybe Pittsburgh with Byron Leftwich but then, nah.

Bulldogs 11-18-2012 08:11 PM

Detroit has Shaun Hill, who by all accounts could be a starting QB for 75% of NFL teams. Probably could run the table.

49erNation85 11-18-2012 08:27 PM

Yea but Smith is probable against the Bears so 9ers will be alright. Don't be hating Ness .

descendency 11-18-2012 08:28 PM

The Patriots would still be top 5.

Swoll_Cat 11-18-2012 08:29 PM

the 9ers would be fine, despite kaepernicks lack of experience he still has all the tools you look for in a winning quarterback, much, much better than the backyard trash you see on some other teams. Lions, browns, bears and especially the cowboys might have a shot of holding it down while their #1's out

Brothgar 11-18-2012 08:29 PM

I think that if every team's #1 QB went down here would be my power rankings

1. Houston
2. San Fran
3. Chicago
4. New England
5. Miami
6. Detroit
7. Dallas
8. Seattle
9. Minnesota
10. Tennessee
11. Jacksonville (assuming it meant trading Gabbert for MJD)
12. Baltimore
12. Buffalo
13. Washington
14. Arizona Cardinals
15. Bengals
16. Atlanta
17. Pittsburgh
18. Baltimore
18. NY Giants
19. Tampa Bay
20. Cleveland
21. St. Louis
22. Denver
22. Indi
23. NY Jets
24. Philadelphia
25. New Orleans
26. Green Bay
27. San Diego
28. Kansas City
29. Oakland

shaun hill, colt mccoy, campbell, kyle orton

Caulibflower 11-18-2012 08:31 PM

Jacksonville, clearly.

soybean 11-18-2012 08:32 PM

Jags probably?

Edit: Seahawks probably deserve attention too.

Maybe Miami with Matt Moore too.

LonghornsLegend 11-18-2012 08:39 PM

There is a slight chance we might be better with Orton. He'd create less big plays but less turnovers too so who knows. Kitna filled in just fine last year so I wouldn't be worried.

Mufasa 11-18-2012 08:51 PM

In that scenario I think Houston, Chicago, and Seattle would be in a class of their own. I don't think anyone else could really compete with them.

vidae 11-18-2012 08:54 PM

It might actually improve the situation KC is in.

Rosebud 11-18-2012 08:55 PM

The Bears. They almost won the Super Bowl with a backup caliber QB n weaker team. Plus Campbell > Sexy Rexy.

Matthew Jones 11-18-2012 08:55 PM

I'd be fairly comfortable with Mallett.

TJ Yates is still ridiculously raw. No one knows what Matt Flynn would do as a full time starter, and Jason Campbell sucks dick.

scottyboy 11-18-2012 08:58 PM

David Carr's sex would win games

Why are you always constantly confused?

Da-Phins 11-18-2012 09:05 PM

Dolphins would be in good shape with Matt Moore. One of the best backups in the league.

Caddy 11-18-2012 09:07 PM

Dan Orlovsky.

coordinator0 11-18-2012 09:10 PM

Starting Tyrod Taylor would be... interesting. I wouldn't have too much faith in him or the Ravens though.

ChiFan24 11-18-2012 09:13 PM

Jason Campbell sucks, but so would everyone else, so the Bears are up there. Detroit and Minnesota would be solid too.

The Texans and Bears might be the two best teams in the NFL right now. If not the best, they're at least two of the best. Both have great defenses and good running games. They'd keep their spot at the top.

The Seahawks also fit in with a good defense and running game. They aren't at the top right now, but the teams ahead of them would miss their QBs a lot, where as going from Wilson to Flynn wouldn't hurt Seattle much, if at all. Get rid of Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, etc. and Seattle jumps all those teams.

I'd actually probably have San Francisco on Seattle's level too.
