is it acceptable that your starting quarterback goes three consecutive games with no touchdown pass? what should be done in your opinion?

i aopologize for my intrusion but i am really looking for some objectivity
i'd say it depends on the history of your starting QB. i mean is the guy a proven winner ? is his play the last 4 weeks unusual, or is he hot one game,sucks the next? what i'm getting at is, is he usually consistent? you wouldn't bench manning or brady for a bad streak, but someone like pennington,you bench.
