I think you guys are being a bit harsh on Mckenzie signing QB's. It's not like we're a winning team and QB's are flocking to be here. Until we start winning, we're going to have to pay a premium for mediocre QB's. With that being said, I'm glad that the coaches have the correct mindset and recognize their mistakes and who make the decision to start the right man for the job. For that I applaud them.
Wow, a well thought out post without hatred for the team, coaches, or owner. Bravo!
Why does criticism have to be construed as "hatred"? I don't hate anybody. I'm just sick and tired of 4-12, 5-11, etc.
BTW, I don't applaud shit. Allen pretty much buckled under the pressure after insisting up until last week that Schaub was the designated starter. Now after Carr basically made it impossible to stick with that decision and not look like a complete fool, he smiles and declares that Carr is his guy. Great. Why didn't you just state that it was an open competition from the outset then? No, for some reason, starting quarterbacks must be "named" as soon as possible. I don't get that. Perhaps if they had told Schaub that he'd be fighting for the job from day one, he would have played with more of a sense of urgency.
You think that this makes Allen look good? I think it makes him look even weaker. Dead coach walking. If he'd had the guts to declare a true open competition from day 1 of camp, then naming Carr the winner of the battle now would be a triumph. His insistence on an actual competition despite the obvious expectations of automatically handing the reins over to Schaub would now look very proactive and intelligent. Instead, he now just looks like what he has always been - a reactor.
