EVALUATING THE LISTED QUARTERBACK ROTATIONS
IN THE AFC FOR 2014
 
 
by WAYNE ALLYN ROOT
 
 
 
This is the time to make money. Preseason football is more about the coaches game plan and the gathering of critical information. Many times the veteran QB's are sidelined so that is the time to sit the veteran offensive linemen as well. With that being said, that team will be playing 2nd and 3rd stringers and if they are up against a team playing their veterans, the contest may become a blowout resulting in a huge Wayne Root WIN! That is a game you will never want to miss. No promises that every match-up is like that but there usually are a few each week.
 
 
My information is updated in "real time" each week as the teams game plans are updated. During the regular season, both teams play to win with their teams best personnel. The next four (4) weeks are they only time during the year that information takes this much importance. I am a huge fan of betting preseason games.

Denver Broncos
Head Coach: John Fox
Quarterback Rotation: Payton Manning, Brock Osweiler, Zac Dysert, Bryn Renner (Rookie North Carolina)
They open preseason against Seattle so that weeks game plan from Coach Fox is critical.
 
Kansas City Chiefs
Head Coach: Andy Reid
Quarterback Rotation: Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray (Rookie Georgia)
Andy Reid is a go-against as he loves to evaluate all levels of talent and has some QB's to figure out as Aaron Murray needs evaluated to see if hype matches talent.
 
Oakland Raiders
Head Coach: Dennis Allen
Quarterback Rotation: Matt Schaub, Derek Carr (Rookie Fresno State), Matt McGloin, Trent Edwards
Matt Schaub is their top signal caller but needs to prove it in preseason. Carr could be great.
 
San Diego Chargers
Head Coach: Mike McCoy
Quarterback Rotation: Philip Rivers, Kellen Clemens, Brad Sorensen
Somehow Coach McCoy likes to run up the score in preseason.

Cleveland Browns
Head Coach: Mike Pettine (ROOKIE)
Quarterback Rotation: Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel (R Texas A&M), Tyler Thigpen, Connor Shaw (Rookie South Carolina)
Who won't be paying attention to this QB race? It's a very difficult one for the new coach to have to make so the top 2 QB's will get plenty of reps.
 
Pittsburgh Steelers
Head Coach: Mike Tomlin
Quarterback Rotation: Ben Roethlisberger, Bruce Gradkowski, Landry Jones, Brandon Kay (Rookie Cincinnati)
Coach Tomlin could care little or less in the preseason. Ben is looking for a new contract paying $25Mill a year so the Steelers may need a back up plan and watch all QB's more than normal. Ben can also not afford to get hurt again.
 
Cincinnati Bengals
Head Coach: Marvin Lewis
Quarterback Rotation: Andy Dalton, Jason Campbell, AJ McCarron (Rookie Alabama), Matt Scott
Coach Lewis loves to win game 1 and then it's anybodies guess. Dalton needs some more confidence. The backup QB's may be a bust.
 
Baltimore Ravens
Head Coach: John Harbaugh
Quarterback Rotation: Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor, Keith Wenning (Rookie Ball State)
Take a look at their QB roster and it's difficult to find a backup to back when Flacco is out.

Buffalo Bills
Head Coach: Doug Marrone
Quarterback Rotation: E.J. Manuel, Jeff Tuel, Dennis Dixon, Thad Lewis
It could be that Coach Marrone will want to impress the home fans will the re-location talk in the City.
 
New York Jets
Head Coach:
Rex Ryan
Quarterback Rotation: Geno Smith, Michael Vick, Matt Simms, Tajh Boyd (Rookie Clemson)
Geno is the top dog and Vick is a capable backup wanting to grad the top job. Nice competition here.
 
Miami Dolphins
Head Coach: Joe Philbin
Quarterback Rotation: Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore, Pat Devlin, Brock Jensen – (Rookie - North Dakota State)
Coach Philbin has a boring game plan in the regular season and an even more uneventful one in preseason.
The QB's are not that good.
 
New England Patriots
Head Coach: Bill Belichick
Quarterback Rotation: Tom Brady, Ryan Mallett, Jimmy Garoppolo (Rookie - Eastern Illinois)
Coach Belichick shows nothing in preseason that can get on game film and used against him by regular season opponents. That may be why he is 0-6 on the week 3 dress rehearsal game
 
_____________________________________________________
 
Houston Texans
Head Coach: Bill O’Brien (ROOKIE)
Quarterback Rotation: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, Tom Savage (R Pittsburgh)
The Texans have two QB's that can play and will take the bettor deep into the game. Coach O'Brien needs to evaluate as a rookie coach.
 
Indianapolis Colts
Head Coach: Chuck Pagano
Quarterback Rotation: Andrew Luck, Matt Hasselbeck, Chandler Harnish
The Colts have a few QB's that can move the ball.
 
Jacksonville Jaguars
Head Coach: Gus Bradley
Quarterback Rotation: Chad Henne, Blake Bortles (Rookie UCF), Ricky Stanzi, Stephen Morris (Rookie Miami)
Not much to offer in terms of QB's. Hope they have a running game and a defense!!
 
Tennessee Titans
Head Coach: Ken Whisenhunt (ROOKIE)
Quarterback Rotation: Jake Locker, Charlie Whitehurst, Tyler Wilson, Zach Mettenberger (Rookie LSU)
Coach Whisenhunt is not necessarily into winning preseason games and as a new coach he needs to evaluate and not worry about his preseason record.
