He's not a young rookie or a new player he's been on the team more then Carr fact is he can't handle the playbook all he has is an arm, he doesn't understand how to read defenses HE HASNT PLAYED A REAL DEFENSE. Tell me I don't know football buddy lace um up right now name the f**king place your telling me the kid has raw talent so anyone who can throw a ball against 4th string defenses in the preseason is just waiting to blossom into an all star? ARE YOU KIDDING ME If the preseason was any indication on future talent players like McCown and Clayton wouldn't ride the pony once the season starts. Learn your s**t buddy. PS per twitter update Davis will get into games earlier if he plays well I'll support him if he doesn't I'll still support him, I don't think he's ready I guess we will find out won't we!
You don't know football.
From an article on Tom Brady:
But at New England, he'd have to start out once again at the bottom. Now for anyone who's played second string, you know the demoralizing feeling of working hard all week to sit on the bench during the games, hoping that, just maybe, your team will get so far ahead that they call in the second string. But he wasn't on second string. He wasn't even on third string. Brady started fourth-string for the Patriots.
I'll make it simple for you because that seems to be all you can handle.
~Sometimes a QB has to wait his turn to show what he can really do, especially if he's not a top draft pick (like Tom Brady, or Johnny Unitas or Tony Romo or Kurt Warner, etc., etc., etc., all of whom were 3rd-stringers at one point in their careers).
~I never said "anyone who can throw a ball against 4th string defenses in the preseason is just waiting to blossom into an all star"...nor did I ever say "pre-season was an indication of future talent." You made that up, like you're making the rest of this crap up. Look up the term "straw man argument," and educate yourself before you reply to someone.
I said, we won't know if he's good or bad until he gets his shot against starters, and that could mean either regular OR pre-season. Who knows if he ever gets a shot? I don't and neither do you, but to cast judgement on a kid because he's not already a starter or 2nd stringer after his first full season is the height of stupidity (you realize that if you were a Patriots fan, that would've been your argument against giving Brady a shot).
You might be right, he might very well suck and never deserve to be more than a 3rd stringer (if even that). But let's give it more than his rookie year to make that call...and let's see him play against starters first before writing him off.
Just a crazy thought...
