Dave Canales: A rookie backup doesn’t make a starter better

The offensive coordinator for the Bucs in 2023, who is already gone, recently made some intriguing remarks on backup quarterbacks.

Naturally, Joe is referring to Dave Canales, the recently hired head coach of the Panthers, who was a resident of Seattle for almost ten years prior to moving to Tampa.

During his time with the Seahawks, Canales collaborated with a number of seasoned backup quarterbacks to Russell Wilson, including Drew Lock, Tavaris Jackson, and Geno Smith. It was Kyle Trask in Tampa, a man with few professional throws to his name and no starts.

Canales stated he prefers a backup who has participated in games when speaking at the NFL Annual Meetings in Orlando. Canales claims that they improve the starter.

Canales continued by expressing his excitement about working with former Pro Bowl quarterback Andy Dalton of the Panthers, citing all the details he will teach him in the quarterback’s room.

Did Canales believe Trask was a good starter but not a great backup? Was Trask failing to impress Canales in boardrooms?
