Bengals QB Matt Scott pulls the old puke and pass strategy to perfection
Mr. Madden @PSDRedZone | Aug 8
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Matt Scott had a very productive night on the field during Thursday night's 41-39 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite his solid numbers, his nerves may have gotten the best of him during his battle for the #3 spot on the Bengals depth chart.
Cincinnati's quarterback depth chart is Andy Dalton, Jason Campbell, A.J. McCarron, and Matt Scott. The interesting part of this battle is the fact that A.J. McCarron hasn't thrown a ball yet in camp due to a sore arm. If A.J. is unable to take reps and Scott keeps going out there every week, Matt Scott will most likely win the #3 spot on the Bengals list.
On Thursday Matt Scott was 7 for 11 passing with two touchdowns and also added 68 rushing yards on six attempts. But it wasn't his solid stat-line that had everyone talking this morning.
PUKE EVERYWHERE! PUKE EVERYWHERE! TOUCHDOWN!!!
Whatever works, I guess. Matt Scott lost his lunch twice before throwing a very nice touchdown pass to Conner Vernon into tight coverage in the 4th quarter.
Great pass and an ever better pre-snap routine. Hey, if it worked for Donovan McNabb and Willie Beamen (Any Given Sunday) it should certainly work for Matt Scott in his battle for the third string QB spot.
Interestingly enough, this isn't Matt Scott's first time at the old barf-a-rama rodeo:
