Ryan Tannehill poised to be part of the year of the backup

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – It’s early, but 2019 is looking like the year of the backup quarterback.

Five of the top 14 quarterbacks in passer rating weren’t the starters for their team in training camp.

Carolina’s Kyle Allen, Pittsburgh’s Mason Rudolph, Indianapolis’ Jacoby Brissett, New Orleans’ Teddy Bridgewater and Jacksonville’s Gardner Minshew have done solid work in place of Cam Newton, Ben Roethlisberger, the retired Andrew Luck, Drew Brees and Nick Foles.TannehillSlideChargers

Collectively, they’ve thrown 47 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

What happened to the thing where a team was SOL if the starting quarterback goes down?
