Nobody else has had enough reps and/or knowledge of the playbook to dig us out of a hole. Troy's job to lose and Alex has to truly prove that he wants it back.
Did you really just say it's Troy's job to lose? Why is everyone so delusional today? We are still an underachieving team with some below average QB play. However, Alex is the best option we have at QB. To say otherwise is just mad.
Also, I'm not even completely sold on Troy as the number 2. Carr came out last week with the handcuffs on and looked terrible. As did Troy today, he looked better in the 2nd half.(stats a little skewed with that bomb to Walker) Carr was at the very least an average QB who never got a fair shake and he won't get it here either.
The team pulled out an unlikely win today and Troy battled all the way to the end. He got lucky as hell twice today, but he really, really went out and competed under not ideal circumstances. That makes it his job for at least 1 more week IMHO. Alex more than likely won't be here next year and someone else deserves a look. I've supported Alex just as much as anybody in the past (except Ceaddar),but it is the way it is.
Alex might be the best QB on our roster, but the fact that he'll be coming off of an injury and the W today should keep em on the bench for at least a half.
You're right; Carr never got a fair shake here and he probably never will. There's a reason for that; he absolutely, positively is the worst QB on our roster and he looked like it in pre season, in Carolina and really, really looked like it in Houston. Average my balls; if Alex is captain check down, Carr's the Archduke of dook...and he throws like Uncle Rico and I don't like his megatron helmet
