Fearless QB Competition Predictions
Some predictions about some still-unresolved quarterback competitions around the league:
Atlanta: The Falcons decide to give the job to prized rookie Matt Ryan. Why waste your time with Chris Redman, Joey Harrington or D.J. Shockley getting playing time that could aid Ryan's development?
Baltimore: Troy Smith gets the early-season starting nod and then gives way to Joe Flacco by midseason. The new coaching staff didn't draft Kyle Boller but inherited him. Thus, it feels no obligation to give him another chance to prove he's not a first-round bust.
San Francisco: All signs currently point to journeyman J.T. O'Sullivan getting the job over Alex Smith and Shaun Hill. But it says here, based on nothing more than an inkling, that it's too soon to give up on a top overall draft pick and the 49ers still will hand the job to Smith.
