I feel like we have to have 2 QBs ready to perform at a starter level, and the coaches have to be willing to turn to the other one when the first guy doesn't have it.
We don't have QBs that survive the season. We just don't. We compete with our main guy, but fall apart once he goes down or is hobbled. Need to plug in a healthy, high performer.
I know this is nuts and flies in the face of football conventions. If you have more than one QB, you don't have one QB, yadda yadda yadda...
We have to break out of the offense completely falling apart when our starting QB is less than 100%. In past seasons, we had no shot because the talent isn't there. Next season, I don't think that is the case. As you said, best QB room in decades. Let's use that room to be better. Can't ignore the rest of the talent in that room.
100%. If Shrader is the guy next year they have to be able to pull the trigger and make the move to the other guy(s) if he's struggling. They CAN NOT wait it out until it's too late. Take a page out of Dabo's book and make the change. Even if it's only for a series or two. Sometimes that little change up is all that is needed.
