Especially if the game plan is as simple as this:Glennon was brutal in the preseason. Hoyer has always looked the part of an NFL qb and if he put up 300/3 (even against a mediocre D) that's a good sign
Reading is FUNdamental!Hoyer looked pretty solid to me last week. What don't you like about him?
If you confront someone that you think doesn't read, then you shouldn't yell at them because that's not a way to inspire them to read.Reading is FUNdamental!Hoyer looked pretty solid to me last week. What don't you like about him?
I expect it might be ugly Sunday for sure. However, he does have the shot of being the QB for them for an extended period of time given Schiano's dissatisfaction with Freeman.Even vs. Arizona non-existent pass rush, it better be Doug Martin, Doug Martin and more Doug Martin.
Glennon hasn't had time to even practice with his starting WR crew this week.
I'd take Hoyer over the course of the season.
In 2 QB leagues, no starting QB should be on the waiver wire unless it's a new starter due to benching/injury. Need to stash these guys when you can. Might be a starter, might be trade bait.Catbird said:I agree that, with Schiano saying that Glennon is his starter for the rest of the year, Glennon has a somewhat better chance of playing all year than Hoyer. What Schiano says now and what he says in a month, when the kid (who didn't appear anywhere near ready in pre-season and who might never be) may have thrown 10 INTs to 2 TDs and with the team at 0-7 or 0-9 might be very different. Particularly with Schiano's job squarely on the line.
In my experience with 2 QB leagues, the second QB points are likely to vary hugely from week to week and are often game-changers. I'll take the productive guy over the more likely long term starter every time. You can always pick up a Geno or Ponder (or his replacement) if Hoyer loses the job. But if your 2nd QB is scoring 8 and the other team's guy is scoring 23, that's a big disadvantage. Its like your second RB in a must start 2 RB league. Do you want to be starting the (17ish) McFadden or Ridley, or do you want a (30ish) Woodhead or Green-Ellis because they are more likely to play the rest of the year?
Hoyer has very little in the way of a running game, but two young, talented receivers with whom he already appears to have great chemistry. Those elements seem to be the heart of the offense going forward. Glennon's team is a run first franchise who loves to grind it out and let the pounding and defense decide the game. If Glennon gets to pass much, it will mostly be from behind and in desperation. And I'll surely take Norv over Sullian/Schiano in coaching a passing game.
I don't think guys picking Glennon over Hoyer, at this point, will actually be happening in very many 2 QB leagues (but different takes are what makes the game - and discussion - interesting).
Hoyer train is reminding me of Derek Anderson train. I think this guy could throw a ton, put up a lot of yards, TDs AND INTs. I doubt he will be a great QB, but he could well be an effective fantasy QB for a period of time.Hoyer is the best QB on Cleveland and is better than what several NFL teams are starting. Plus he has some decent targets to throw too. I think it would be dumb not to ride Hoyer as the starter for a while and see what he can do. He is better than the alternative.
