Arizona Cardinals QB Plans Still Include Logan Thomas

facebooktwitterreddit reports that Thomas will see a lot of offseason work

In case you were wondering if Arizona Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas was going anywhere, think again.  The quarterback from Virginia Tech is now entering his second year with the team.  Head coach Bruce Arians told Darren Urban from that he planned on giving Thomas a lot of reps this offseason.

Thomas spent most of his rookie season on third-string ahead of Ryan Lindley.  Thomas saw action as a backup to Drew Stanton against the Denver Broncos.  Stanton was starting in place of Carson Palmer.  It wasn’t a pretty effort by Thomas but he did throw one lucky touchdown pass.

After Stanton went down against the St. Louis Rams in December, that left Lindley as the starter and Thomas as his backup.  The initial plan after the big loss to the Seattle Seahawks and Lindley’s poor performance was to replace Lindley with Thomas.  Thomas was so bad after one half of one practice though, the gig was up.

When the option to go with Lindley is the better one, that speaks volumes about his backup.  Of course we saw what a debacle of a playoff game Lindley had against the Carolina Panthers.  Now Lindley is gone and it’s back to the Thomas experiment.

You can’t fault Arians and the Cardinals for giving it another shot with Thomas though.  After all this will be just his second season.  It makes sense to keep him as involved as possible.  Arians said he didn’t want to see Thomas fail as the main reason for not starting him over Lindley or replacing him in the playoff game.  I’m just not sure in the end he is the answer in the future, not only for the Cardinals but for others as well.
