This is for Norv above too:Pondering Her Percy wrote:Everyone saying put Sloter in, here is my question....
Are we in this to win games or are we here to see if we can find some miracle QB that we dug up off Denvers practice squad??
If Bradford is out for the year or most of the year and our season is in the tank, yeah you try Sloter then. Not when you're 1-1.
I don't think there is more than 2-3 people saying start Sloter.
I'm not saying start Sloter now.....which is why I sometimes/often will question the comprehension here. It literally says in my post that it's likely Sloter is at least a couple weeks way from understanding the offense and that yes it's week 3....and the jury is still out on Bradford.
HOWEVER, It is starting to look bad for Bradford and this franchise has a long track record of settling for the safe play, which in this case might be to play Keenam and pray TB will be sound on their way to an 8-8 record with excuses due to injury.
What I'm suggesting, that would actually represent , to me,a change in this current regimes mentality, is that if Bradford is still hobbling by week 5....throw Sloter out there. 8-8 is 8-8 regardless of qb ...and it's actually worse than 3-13 4-12 as far as missing the playoffs and getting a draft pick.
The questions I have:
Does anyone else see this as a legit direction? and Do you think this team would make that decision?
That's it really
