Arizona Cardinals Roster From A to Z: Derek Anderson

As we wait for the NFL labor situation to be resolved, I am starting a series on current Arizona Cardinals players and my thoughts on the past performance all the way to whether I think they will be on the roster in 2011. I start from A and go to Z.  Next up:  Quarterback Derek Anderson


2010 analysis: What a mess he turned out to be.  Anderson was brought in to be the backup ad instead ended up being the default starter after the failure of Matt Leinart.  Anderson has a strong arm, almost too strong though as he often overthrew his receivers.  Even with fans not expecting much, he was still disappointing.

2011 outlook: Well, whatever he does in 2011, it most likely will not be with the Cardinals.  I still think he is a serviceable backup, but that is all he is, a backup.  Someone will give him a shot at being the number two, but Anderson didn’t exactly play like he was fighting for a job here or elsewhere next season.
