Should the team go with an undrafted player who has yet to throw a pass in a regular season game (Kellen Moore) or a veteran whose strengths and faults they are well aware of (Dan Orlovsky)?
In Moore you have one of the best and most successful college football passers in recent history. Impressive? Yes--but college success often means little in the NFL.
Than there is Orlovsky. He's been primarily a back-up that has gotten a spot start here and there over the years. At times he's looked pretty sharp, but at other times--like when he ran the ball out of the back of the end zone on a roll-out--he's looked pretty comical (which explains why he's never been counted on to start).
So--who gets the nod?
The decision is one that the team will likely not make until the end of the preseason, but based off the first game the job should go to Moore. He was by far the more impressive of the two completing 11 of 13 passes for 121 yards and the only touchdown of the game (see above).
True--Moore was playing against lesser competition than Orlovsky, but the fact that he was able to make a rag tag offense (which is what all third-string offenses) are look sharp is bound to make the coaching staff take notice.
The good thing is it's only preseason so if they give him snaps in front of Orlovsky next week and he chokes it isn't going to matter.
