I really dont like it. It seems like neither qb can get in a rhythm and that effects the whole team, I think. I thought last week KB was watching sunshine struggling just a bit and the light came on. When he came back in he looked more relaxed and played with less pressure, it seemed to me. IMO he earned the team last week. Give it to him. Sure, when we get up and it's in hand put in the backups. These shenanigans almost cost the game last week.

Just my two cents worth, but it didn't appear to me that any of our problems last week had anything to do with rotating QBs.


Don't get me wrong, I really like seeing Kelly succeed. I'm just willing to trust the coaches. Whatever decisions they make, they are a lot more qualified to do their jobs than I am. Oh and BTW, we ARE 2-0.

1. Our play calling left a lot to be desired.
2. Our offensive line was not creating holes for the RBs.
3. Our RBs did not run the ball very much (see #2).

If we cannot recruit and/or develop an offensive line that can simply block anyone that is in front of them, then our play calling needs to reflect that. Teams that block well don't give up on the run, especially handing the ball off to their RBs.

NO reason to not play them both. What if we get late in the season and Kelly goes down? Tr for needs as much game experience as possible. Like Dabo said, if there is noticeable separation, that changes things, otherwise I think both have performed well enough to keep playing. Garbage time doesn’t get TL the experience he needs.
