NFL Quarterback Controversies

Controversy is nothing new in the NFL, and the 2010 season proves to be no different. As fans and teams ramp up for the regular season, there are several quarterback controversies brewing across the National Football League.

The Philadelphia Eagles are right in the middle of a controversy, after releasing veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb – picked up by the Washington Redskins. In McNabb’s wake, Philly finds themselves deciding between Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb. The plan, apparently, is for the Eagles to rotate both quarterbacks before making a firm decision.

Rumors state that the locker room is divided as to which quarterback the Eagles would like to start the 2010 regular season, but only time (and possibly performance) will tell.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger until at least the October 17 game against the Cleveland Browns. The remaining Steeler quarterbacks, Byron Leftwich, Dennis Dixon and Charlie Batch, are now in a three-way battle for the starting role. All indications, however, are that Leftwich will be the man.

The Steelers quarterback controversy is centered around Leftwich’s lack of mobility, Dixon’s lack of experience and Batch’s frequency of injury.  Should prove to be an interesting start to the season.

Arizona CardinalsThe Arizona Cardinals have their own controversy going on, between a less-than-productive Matt Leinart and former Cleveland Browns quarterback Derek Anderson. However, there are rumors that the Cardinals are looking to either trade or cut Leinart, so this controversy could be settled sooner, rather than later.

If the Cards do release Leinart, many are unsure if Derek Anderson can get back his 2007 mojo.

It will be interesting to see how these situations play out over the next week or so. Be sure to stay tuned for updates and insight!
