Yes -- I know it's garbage time. Yes -- I know he looked impressive against the training camp scrubs and roster fodder that will be searching for jobs after the final cutdown.
I understand as much.
But -- he continues to look good. He continues to look in control.
Why? Why can't we play him -- just once you understand -- in the 1st quarter? Against a real starting defense? Why don't the powers that be want to find out what they really have here?
I know -- he'll never get his chance unless Alex and David hit the skids. Seems like a big waste to me.
You'll never truly know what you have until you give the kid a chance to PLAY.
Yet -- he doesn't get that chance.
Not sure if you remember his play in the final Preseason game last year; but, he did take over at the end of the 1st quarter (our 2nd series) and played the rest of the game. He went 13 for 23 for 115 yards in his 3+ quarters of play and only led us to 1 TD. He didn't look all that impressive against San Diego while earning his 66.4 QB rate which included 4 3&Outs and an INT to finish the game.
So, he did get a chance last year and didn't do so hot. I'm sure he will get another chance in the final pre-season game this year to show us just how much he's learned since then...
