This Arizona team looked hopeless on both sides of the ball, to the point that they might want to start thinking about 2019 already. I don't know if they'll see it similarly or change their plan if so, but they aren't competing. If they agree, the calculus might change from 'who helps us win best today?' to a framing more around 'how do we best prepare Rosen for the future?'
If the Cardinals stick with the Best Chance of Winning doctrine, that should actually be to Rosen's advantage. Bradford completed 20-of-34 passes for 153 yards and an interception – incredible futility. Completing less than 60 percent of your passes despite refusing to throw downfield is simply a no-go for any team that seriously wants to win. Unfortunately, there's probably nothing actionable here – Rosen is likely already owned in most 2QB leagues, and he's unlikely to have any use outside of them even if he gets into the starting lineup.
No need to go over the morbid details on this one. Peterman is probably not better than Allen, but if the Bills want to keep Allen physically intact they might want to keep him out a while longer. Peterman took three sacks while throwing just 18 passes against a Ravens pass rush that probably isn't above
