The Arizona Cardinals are going to start Drew Stanton at quarterback next week in San Francisco
For many Arizona Cardinals fans, there is not a lot of love for quarterback Drew Stanton. Some like him but many more would rather see Blaine Gabbert get a shot.
He may end up getting his shot. For now, Stanton is the starter, at least against the San Francisco 49ers on November 5th.
Starting fresh with a new quarterback outside the organization this late in the season isn’t going to help a whole lot. It could help win a game here and there but a guy off the street isn’t likely to come in and help this team in 2017.
That being said, Gabbert is still learning the system as well. However he certainly would have a grasp of the offensive playbook more so than anyone who would come in and take the spot.
Stanton is likely going to be given more than one chance to prove himself. The game against the 49ers is bound to frustrate some because as soon as Stanton makes a mistake, people are going to be calling for Gabbert.
Coach Bruce Arians is going to give Stanton every chance to succeed here. Whether that’s one game or three, that remains to be seen. If the Cardinals were to give someone a shot other than Stanton, who would that person be?
