I don't believe in all the people saying that starting a rookie quarterback will ruin him. I think it's nonsense.
Alex Smith failed because he lacked talent. David Carr failed because he lacked talent.
Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco succeeded because they had talent.
I'm having a hard time believing that the Lions' Oline has more talent then Carr and Smith had their rookie years. The kid is gonna get knocked on his ass a ton this year and the Lions are gonna regret making this move. They shoulda had Daunte start and have Stafford play in garbage time in the 2nd half.
