If were all being honest - hopes are currently being placed on a career journeymen back-up who until last season showed very little in terms of ever being anything more then a  spot starter -  And, a  second year player who started 13 games but had mixed results - but who showed enough that the team feels confident that the new coaches can mold him in to a solid starter and whose ceiling is higher than what was offered via the draft.

I agree 100% Yuccs, especially  this    but who showed enough that the team feels confident that the new coaches can mold him in to a solid starter and whose ceiling is higher than what was offered via the draft."

I've been a huge Glennon fan and believe he can be more than good enough to win as the QB of a defensive, run oriented team.  However, I'm not so sure Lovie thinks so.  Is it possible that Lovie wants to go with Josh 1 year, Glennon for a year (maybe longer if making the playoffs),  THEN draft your own guy, thus giving the HC a job for at least two additional years, while the new QB develops?  That's 4 years minimum for a HC to keep a job with a mediocre team.  I know Lovie wants to win.  Winning is the way to keep your job for 10 years, but,  it's evident to me that HC's construct contingency plans to stay employed with an 8-8 team for as long as possible.  If Lovie had drafted his own guy now, he wouldn't have 4 years with an average team before being fired.

Please wait…
