#1 The decision to keep Alex has already been made. 6yrs is more than enough time to settle in despite #6 different OC's. Life isn't always fair. Get over it and let's move on. #2 Troy "lit up" the lambs big time last meeting. He's the 10,000lb elephant in the room until he proves otherwise. #3 This game is one and done, and Troy has proven that he can manage a game very well when he had to (I happen to believe the coaches ramped him up a bit too quickly, which led to bad decisions and ill-timed throws). #4 I like Troy's pocket presence and escapability.
I would also keep Troy as a mid-term (3yrs) backup to serve as mentor and #2 because he's a natural leader.
Disagree. Troy just does not possess the same intelligence Alex does. Alex earned his degree in 2 1/2 years. I do not believe Troy even earned a degree? Perhaps in ~~~girl watching?
we're talking about football here not brain surgery. so what if alex had a 4.0 gpa or graduated in 2 years. alex can't play football and troy is a baller. i can't wait to read everyones comments swinging from troy's nuts once he beats the rams for the second time.
Troy is just like Alex. Through the 4-5 games he's played this year, he's tucked and run it too soon instead of relying on his vision and reads. He pulls it down too fast and starts running with it instead of hanging in the pocket, making the correct read, and throwing it on target.
Saying that, I would like to give Troy one offseason to learn the offense and get the start Week 1 in 2011 while we draft a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round of next year's draft. Groom that QB and then we'll have our QB of the future. To me, this is the best plan of action. If Troy come into his own, then we have our Quarter of the Future. If not, we've got the rookie (hopefully one will prevail at least worthy of a starting spot).
