The Arizona Cardinals' newest quarterback may have just been plucked off the waiver wire, but many fans are hoping to see Brian Hoyer take some snaps before the 2012 season ends.

ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo the 27-year-old will need at least a week or two with the Cardinals before he will be ready for game action, with the team needing to very much simplify the gameplan for a player without much time in the system.

However, Jaworski added he is a fan of the former Patriots backup.

"I'm surprised Brian Hoyer was available after he was released by the New England Patriots earlier this year," Jaworski said. "I liked Brian when he was coming out.

"I thought what I saw of him on tape in New England, you know he had extensive preseason work, very limited regular season work, but I thought he had a shot to be an NFL quarterback."

Ron Jaworski joins to guys to talk about this week in the NFL. What surprised Jaws about the Cardinal's signing of Brian Hoyer? Ron tells us what the Cardinals what will need to do to beat the Lions this Sunday. And, Ron tells who his MVP is to this point in the season. Plus, why does Jaws say that Atlanta and Houston will struggle when they get to the playoffs?
Hoyer may get a chance with the Cardinals, as Kevin Kolb was just placed on injured reserve and backups John Skelton and Ryan Lindley have been ineffective under center. Though few would expect Hoyer, who was most recently with the Pittsburgh Steelers, to be ready, there is a thought that he can't be any worse than what the Cardinals have had at the position.

"I was kind of surprised that Hoyer was not picked up immediately by a team like the Cardinals who had some quarterback needs."
