The 2019 NFL season is fast approaching. There will be many storylines throughout the season. A few of those storylines will involve possible quarterback changes. With that being said here are a few that could happen doing the season. There may be some on here that will blow your mind and may ruffle some feathers.

1.   NEW YORK GIANTS

We may be about 2 years late with bringing in a new QB to replace 2X SuperBowl MVP/Champion Eli Manning. The Giants may have gotten a jewel in Saquan Barkley, but deep down inside, they’re wishing they drafted Sam Darnold or Josh Allen. Daniel Jones will be the guy before their bye week.

2.   NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Now I know it may come to a surprise but hear me out here. The Saints have been short of the SuperBowl for the last 2 seasons now. They have the talent on both sides of the football, and the window with Drew Brees is closing right before our very eyes. The Saints have a lot of depth at QB with Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill. Don’t be surprised if they want to keep Brees fresh for the season and rest him along the way. They’re a veteran team and they know it’s not how you start, but rather, how you finish.

3.   WASHINGTON REDSKINS

Last season, the Redskins got off to a good start. Injuries have always been the issue here in Washington, even In the NBA. Alex Smith was a good C level talent. Colt McCoy, another C level talent. Josh Johnson and Marc Sanchez however, were D level talent. The Redskins actually started the most QB’s last season so this year won’t be different. They’re looking for A level talent. Alex Smith (C Level Talent) won’t play this year. Case Keenum will start this season (C Level Talent). But Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins will finish the season (B Level Talent) with hopes of him being an A Level Talent. 

4.   TENNESSEE TITANS

Marcus Mariota is on his final year of his rookie contract. After 4 seasons in the NFL, I don’t think ANY GM in the league would be willing to give him top dollar. The Titans know what they have in Marcus Mariota. He’s good but he does need a push to get the most out of him. Mariota’s a competitor. That’s why they brought in Ryan Tannehill. They will fight to make the playoffs but they will be mathematically eliminated sooner rather than later. To help both sides, they will allow Mariota to finish the season healthy and he should be benched so he can have a healthy free agency and maybe even return to the Titans.

5.   CINCINNATI BENGALS

The Bengals are doing the best that they can with what they have. In a draft not so heavy of QB’s, the Bengals decided to fill other holes. But in the meantime, they’re working with what they have doing the best they can. There will be Good Times in Cincinatti, they’re keeping their heads above water.
