LOVE this idea. McCarron is sneaky good.

This team needs a franchise QB, not a "sneak good" QB that will lead us to mediocrity. I'd rather bring back Geno and Sanchez.

Who said McCarron is the long term answer? We're still drafting a QB high within the next two years. This is just better than paying Jay Cutler.

I don't trade Richardson for McCarron. I keep Sheldon and don't play him out of position.

McCarron has a weak arm...will not make good use of Anderson and Smith

Let's see Smith step on the field before we start tailoring the offense to his skills, eh?

You can't, because two of the highest paid/best players on the team also play his position.

Even if you hate McCarron people should accept that Sheldon is gone and we're probably getting pennies on the dollar for him because he's a knucklehead.

But you are giving away an asset, in Richardson, when you can just sign Cutler or any other JAG QB.  

I'd rather just go with Geno, lose 14 games and increase our chances of landing a franchise QB next year.

Greg Cosell's Film Review: An AJ McCarron scouting report

The Cincinnati Bengals will have to move forward with quarterback AJ McCarron, and we don’t know much about McCarron as an NFL quarterback.

Before last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, when Andy Dalton went out with a broken thumb, McCarron had four NFL passes in two years. But McCarron came into a difficult situation against the Steelers and he handled it pretty well.

We don’t know how McCarron will play the rest of this season, for however long he must play for the 10-3 Bengals in place of Dalton. But we can analyze the film of the Steelers game for some clues, and I also went back to my draft notes on McCarron (funny enough, one of my notes was: “Will McCarron be seen as an Andy Dalton type of QB?”).

Here’s a sampling of what I thought about McCarron coming out of Alabama before the 2014 draft, after breaking down eight of his game films:

- Showed functional mobility in response to pressure

- Accuracy was a plus, consistent with his ball location

- Very efficient with his reads and throws in Alabama’s tightly structured pass game

- Showed the ability to throw with anticipation. Refined sense of progression reading, showed ability to work through progressions

- A very good touch passer, nice trajectory on deeper throws

- Anticipation and overall accuracy are positives, so is pocket composure

- A highly-structured pocket QB who needs functional space and a well-orchestrated pass game. Efficiency drops dramatically with bodies around him, not quick in the pocket

- An executor with awareness and understanding, limitations physically

- Much more of a soft tosser than a drive-the-ball passer

So we have a profile of a quarterback who didn't have a power arm, and was a safe and conservative passer in Alabama’s managed offense. I had questions if a limited passer such as McCarron could be a quality starter in the NFL. Those physical limitations I talked about were why he dropped to the fifth round of the 2014 draft.

When I watched McCarron’s film from the Steelers, game, I thought his passing skill set was similar to Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. They are both quarterbacks who need to operate with refined timing and anticipation within the structure of the pass game to be effective. And McCarron did that well last week, and he also showed nice aggressiveness and confidence throwing the ball at the intermediate levels.

McCarron showed good awareness in the pocket, made aggressive throws with anticipation and overall did some good things against the Steelers, although he had moments when his inexperience was evident. McCarron is in a challenging spot now, leading a playoff-bound Bengals team. He has the benefit of a good supporting cast around him. We'll learn a lot about McCarron as an NFL quarterback in the upcoming weeks.

Well I do think McCarron has upside and salary wise he's cheap. I'd much rather get him and test drive him for a year than sign Cutler.

If it's an all out tank for a top top pick then frankly we should just start Petty.

Not many franchise QBs out there and what team(s) are trading them?

IF this goes down McCarron will be in the mix competing w/Hackenberg & Petty

This is something I suggested. I hope it happens, both guys HAVE to be traded by their respective teams... just get us a draft pick to go along with McCarron.

JEts put a second round tender in Wesley Johnson. More than likely he will be the starting center next year. Which, outside of one major snafu, should be okay

I play all 3 of them but not on every down. 3 guys playing two positions. Not saying on a specific play a guy can't line up differently or you can't use all 3 of them at the same time.

Hahaha.  We couldn't trade him on his rookie deal or his tender.  You are going to be able to trade him now?  What are we going to get?  Two firsts, I am sure!

Good idea, keep the guy who is one joint away from a year long suspension and is a free agent next year and trade the guy you just re-signed and absorb the $26M in dead money.

ha, no unfortunately no one wants him. but ideally he doesn't break his leg to end the 2015 season and we would have been able to trade him.

I still think just watching him and richardson, richardson looks more like more beastly type of player.

Look defenses change on every play. It's not so static. Sometimes guy play way out of position. But overall I try to get the best out of Sheldon. And with injuries and fatigue during a game using two out of the three per play is something teams do. A guy sits out a specific number of plays.

Also more dangerous to have on roster.  Volatile dude.  Richardson is a FA after this year.  You want to tag him?  Pay him?  Let him walk after trading your best player?

Sorry.  You do realize what the other guy I am talking to is saying, right?  That might explain why I don't always see sarcasm around here.

You generally don't trade for a franchise QB, you draft one the year there is a clear cut one available like there will be in next years draft. When the Colts lost Manning to an injury they didn't panic and try to trade for a guy like Mccarron, they opted to just suck the rest of the year and get Luck. You think they regret that move?

I don't mind this move, either. McCarron has one year left on his rookie deal, so he's cheap. Let him prove his worth next year before locking him up long term.
