Those likely to see little-to-no-playing time in 2020

Jameis Winston – New Orleans Saints, Andy Dalton – Dallas Cowboys, Ryan Fitzpatrick – Miami Dolphins, Jared Allen – Washington Redskins, Jacoby Brissett – Indianapolis Colts, Mason Rudolph – Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Flacco – New York Jets, Jordan Love – Green Bay Packers

Let’s be honest. If any of the above throw 175+ passes in 2020, something went drastically wrong for the seven teams counting on these guys to look good on the sidelines with a ball cap on their heads, being contributors in the meeting rooms Monday through Saturday.

We hope this guy starts every game… (or do we?)

Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago Bears, Dwayne Haskins – Washington Redskins, Justin Herbert – Los Angeles Chargers

For the Bears, they passed on two other quarterbacks in the draft in which they selected Trubisky that will rank far better than him. As it pertains to Washington, they would love for medicinal science to somehow rapidly progress to the point that Alex Smith was an option. Lastly, the Chargers will publicly tell you they believe in Tyrod Taylor while (not so) secretly hope that Herbert is ready to perform Week 1 on the road in Cincinnati.

We are both the future and the present

Joe Burrow – Cincinnati, Tua Tagovailoa – Miami Dolphins

Both guys were selected in the top five of the 2020 NFL Draft for the sole purpose of being the man when the season starts. Good luck gentleman, we are all intrigued to see what you bring to the table.
