Post Backup QB to replace Jeff Garcia??
candidates:

Kordell Stewart
Quincy Carter
Tim Couch
Chad Hutchinson
Vinny Testeverde

I like Vinny Testeverde here because he's a proven winner and veteran. I know he's over 40 years old now, and basically immoble, but with the Lions athletic offensive studs Testeverde wouldn't need to be very mobile. He has a good throwing arm and is accurate. All he would need to do is dump the ball off to Charles Rogers or Roy Williams and let the 1st round draft picks show why we drafted them. And, Testeverde would probably not even play anyways (hopefully). But I'd much rather see Testeverde backing up Joey Harrington than Dan Orlovsky. Signing Testeverde would only be a 1-year deal anyways so his age wouldn't be an issue at all. What do you guys think about this? He's the best QB out there on the market. I'd definitely feel more comfortable with him behind Joey Harrington . Behind is the key word here, because there wouldn't be a QB controversey if we brought him in either.

If you guys have any other backup QB options throw them out there! I'll be making a poll either tomorrow or the next day.

Of the Q.B.'s available, I like Vinny the best. Crusty old vet that can read a defense and won't ususally lose a game for you.

I heard today that the depth chart at Q.B. reads like this: Joey, Orlovsky and Kevin Johnson. That's right, the wide receiver Kevin Johnson. Let's just say right now that the Lions are a little thin at Quarterback. :lol:
