Alex won't be healthy enough, so it's Troy easily. No reason to rush him back in either, especially after Troy got himself a win. Keep the guy with momentum and let him have a chance to prove he can do enough to be the starter. Chances are, another win would solidify that.
In the mean time, Alex can rest up and get healthy. We don't want an '07 repeat. Alex had a hot hand before he got hurt with 6 TD's and only 1 pick. Now Troy has the hot hand with 2 TDs and 1 rushing. Our OL can't pass protect well and Troy's legs help him escape the ever-occurring pressure.
If Troy wins next week, the right move will be to keep him in until he does something bad enough for us to remove him. I just want to win games -- we all do -- so when something's working, we need to take that and go with it.
I wish Alex hadn't gotten hurt last week obviously, but I also wish Troy had come in instead of Carr. We would've won that game if either of those had been the case. Troy is getting his chance now, and we'll see what he can do week 10.
Too bad Alex's "hot hand" only got us one win.
