The NFL is quickly proceeding toward its opening night, Thursday, Sept. 8, with an epic showdown between the Bills and the Rams looming.

Those teams know who they’re starting at quarterback – an essential position in the game as it turns out if you haven’t noticed – but other squads are still trying to solve the matter.

Meh, here are three terrible teams that are considerably closer to deciding once and for all who will be their signal-caller, at least to start, so you should wager accordingly.

And you’ll pay a princely sum, but, barring an injury, these are gimmes.

Baker Mayfield, Carolina Panthers (-1200)

Yeah, it’s not gonna be Sam Darnold … at least for now. I’m not convinced Mayfield succeeds. Darnold may be the starter in game 2 or 12. Who knows. But Mayfield certainly is starting against the embattled Browns, his former team, on Sept. 11, when the Panthers host. That will be prime-time TV viewing and the media will pump it. Book that one. Tremendous juice but that’s gonna happen.

Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons (-1200)

Also not great odds, but without Matt Ryan, who’s now in Indianapolis, the options are limited. Mariota is a mystery to me. I thought/predicted he would be great in the NFL after a remarkable Heisman-winning career at Oregon. Saw him tons. He’s still only 27 and perhaps he has a resurrection in Atlanta. I’m pulling for him because he’s a kind, cool kid.

Mitch Trubisky, Pittsburgh Steelers (-250)

Deep down the Steelers want to prove they made the correct NFL Draft pick by selecting local hero and homeboy Kenny Pickett. I’ll tell you this: Trubisky is a bust. Saw enough of him during his days in Chicago. I like Pickett. Kid’s got moxie, me believes. That fake slide … Savvy brilliance. He’ll be the starter by Week 6 if not sooner. Forget this Mason Randolph nonsense and Trubisky is on a short leash.
