But, completely agree with you. There's no team out there that has anyone but an average second string.
Exactly how is it costing us? Did we lost on Monday? Have we lost to the Ratbirds yet? When you have a franchise QB who still has 6-7 years left there is no point to keeping a young QB. You are better off with a veteran who knows the offense.
