Ya know, Kap basically surpassed Alex in his 2nd year and he simply was just better. My take on Daniels is if he's the best man for the backup job then he just is. I don't care when or how he was drafted. Skillset wise he's the best equipped to come in and keep the continuity of the offense if heaven forbid Kap has to miss any time, so I don't have any problem with BJ as the #2. However, to McCoy's credit he had those 2 long scrambles and I have no prob with him as #2 and BJ #3 either. I think we've seen Tolzien's ceiling pretty much. I trust whatever Harbaalke does.
I agree. I mean talent cannot be coached, if the kid has it, all it takes is good coaching to refine his skills and techniques and the rest is on-field application and experience. Yes he is raw, but so was Kap. Kap is a tough dude, with all the muscles he has packed in, touch wood should be quite durable. This will buy time for BJ to hone in his skills by playing more snaps than being #3 during practices. Plus with his atheltic skills set, Roman will not need to call different plays for him which will make our offense more seamless if and when he needs to go in.
