    [size=30pt]Patience with Quarterbacks [/size]

    Moral of the story:
    Even after 48 games, you may not know who will will rise to the top.
    To think you know after 16, is just plain dumb. Everyone needs to quit pretending they are an expert and let the professionals do their job.
    When you call for Tavaris Jackson, Donovan McNabb or Brian Griese to be run out of town, realize you also would have called for the heads of half a dozen Hall of Famers.
    Probably more.

    :
    I could be wrong (i'm not) but didn't favre come in for an injured player as a "project" and never looked back?
    Sure, he didn't blow the socks of anyone, but he only twice had a sub-50 QB rating his first season as a starter.
    he went 9-6 as a starter.

    And theres also plenty of QBs who were given patience, and still not succeeded. All depends how you look at it

    Reminds me of NBA Jam...Ah the good ol' days.

    Interesting point Marr.
    We live in an age of "we want it now!" and usually we get it.
    Who the heck has patience anymore?
    ;D
    Them old QBs had it easy.
    :P

    I really don't see you point. I have always stated TJ needs more time learning away from the pressures of the game. I think that is how most think. I think the situation would be totally different if we were a rebuilding team but we are not.

    Perhaps...but there are PLENTY of people on this site alone that have been calling for his head.
    And that dates back to his first season in the NFL.

    I definitely feel that TJack still hasn't had enough play time to prove to any of us that he's a bust.
    He still plays like a rookie at times but that comes from lack of experience and related confidence.

    Who cares about them. I only deal with the ones that live in reality.
    The couple people that want him gone probably don't understand the difference between the NFL and FCS (I-AA) College Football.

    Favre came in for Don Majkowski.

    Favre used to roll out to his right when pressured. He always went right. But we still couldn't get containment over there. That drove me nuts as a fan.

    The other thing was the number of screens they would have success with.
    You knew you would see 2 or 3 a game, yet we still had a hard time stopping them.

    Very frustrating!
