I was wondering why we even pick this cat up in the first place; no offense to McMahon. You gotta think about it for a second. If he could not beat out Joey Harrington for the Lions starting spot, how could he be our #2 QB?
Once we got him early this year, my first thought was "why?". If Brad goes down and we are left with McMahon....our season is over. I am sure that McMahon is good at #3 or maybe at the four spot, but not #2.
I am guessing cheap NFL experience insurance in case Michael Vick Jr. does not grasp the O or blow out the knee on one of his nasty Barry Sanders cuts. If TJ continues to improve and stay healthy, BJ better be worried if the team has Daunte flashbacks from last year and loses the first fews games.
No way Bj will be sent to 2nd string. No way, not even next year. I'm the biggest T-Jack fanboy on this site, but moving BJ down to 2nd string would be the shadiest, dumbest thing to do ever. Let BJ play until he retires. He'll know when his time has come, unlike his compatriot in GB.This way T-Jack keeps learning from a guy who just knows how to win. And it keeps T-Jack healthy, b/c he's not on the field all the time. Now I don't want to bench him like Aaron Rodgers in GB, who never gets to play b/c Favre is just stupid. I can't wait until T-Jack takes over the helm, but pay BJ more and keep him around as long as he wants. He'll know when TJ has surpassed him and he'll know to step down at that point. TJ still has a lot he can learn from BJ, that's for sure.
