The 5 O’Clock Club: If the Redskins beat the Titans, who should start at QB in Week 17?

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere…

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season, and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

Jay Gruden, in a press conference this week, expressed confidence that Colt McCoy will be ready to play soon; perhaps as early as Week 17.

A bit of a twitter war has broken out over the question of whether the Redskins should plan to start Colt if he’s healthy or if he should be a backup in the game against the Eagles. This questions is especially vexing if Josh Johnson manages to lead the team to a victory over the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.


If the Redskins win on Saturday with Josh Johnson starting at QB, then Colt McCoy is cleared by doctors to play in Week 17, who should start against the Eagles?

If the Redskins beat the Titans on Saturday and Colt McCoy is cleared by doctors to play in Week 17, what should the Redskins do about Mark Sanchez?

    Cut him; he sucks and the Redskins don’t need him (they can always re-sign him if something crazy happens)
