Personally, I think it would be a good idea to not carry a 3rd QB. Love the approach of getting Kaep in early to get an idea of how he can do against what should be a good 1st string D.
I mean, really: does anyone think that, say, McCown won't be available some time later in the season if we need him?
yes and no, let Kap play until mid 4th and let the McRetard play the rest. I really like Kap but everybody needs some reps.
i mean on the regular season roster. Harbs was non-committal about carrying a 3rd Qb this season. I think part of the reason that Kaep is getting the early snaps saturday is to help make that determination. If Kaep plays well enough that Harbs feels comfortable inserting him into the game in an emergency, then maybe we won't need to keep McCown. Like I said, I'm sure he'll still be on the street later in the season if we needed him.
Its a risky move, obviously, but if it came down to it, would you rather keep McCown on the roster, who will likely never see the field and has no future with the team, or, say, Dobbs, (just to pull a name out of the air), a player who might have a future with the team and might not clear waivers?
