I know this is premature and could also be lumped in with ten thousand other threads, but.......after grandpa unlaces for the last time and rides off into the sunset on his Allis Chalmers who is going to take the torch and lead this team?
I haven't thrown TJ under the bus yet and I don't think Sage will ever be a super bowl caliber QB. It's not a knock on him it's just he's missing that certain something that franchise QB's possess. Oh ya, the word I'm looking for...talent. TJ might come around under Brett, but I think Sage has peaked and what you see is what you get.
That being said do we start over and draft the next experiment or take are chances/ go all in with TJ. I'm kind of torn but the bottom line is that the clock is running out on Brett and we can't afford a long drawn out rebuilding era while we have the best running back in the league in his prime.
I don't think its whether we'll take a chance on TJ, it will all depend if TJ takes a chance on us.
His contract is over after this season, him coming back is not a given. After the way we handled the QB situation, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't want to be back.
I'd be all for giving Tj a shot, then trying to draft someone with a first or second pick.
Get perhaps a Matt Schuab situation, where if TJ does pan out, we can trade whoever we draft away for more than he's worth.
