"The team has veteran signal callers Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder on the roster, however the coach said he would consider rookie Teddy Bridgewater if he outperforms the two."
I love how he parses his comments subtley... the key to that quote is the "...if he outperforms the two." Why on earth wouldn't he start if he outperforms Cassel and Ponder? I was very interested in this when I first read it, but I realized he wasn't really telling us anything new.
Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.
