Discussing is one thing...but every year people go overboard and wanna crown someone's ass because they make a few plays.
Case in point :

Considering Tolzien has been a complete abomination at QB the first 2 games.
That's not too far from the truth. Daniels would have to lay two eggs in a row to not get a spot. You can't ignore how he looked out there. RAW; but the ability cannot be faked.
All of his throws were impressive for a backup. Combine that with his running ability, combine that with the fact that he doesn't have the privilege of normal practice reps like the other quarterbacks; and it all adds up to a situation where you don't want to risk him being pulled onto another desperate team's 53.
A third string quarterback is not a big roster commitment. That's where you develop guys, another team could easily say, "Why not?"
