Agreed, and do we really think some QB drafted now is gonna wait 4 or 5 years to start?

Roders was the last of that breed, and by most accounts he was probably ready to go in year 2, definitely year 3 had Favre stopped un-retiring.

Re: Zach Mettenberger marvels with maturity

Probably not, but they should. Judging by their performance, the majority of these kids just aren't ready to lead a franchise. Geno Smith, EJ Manuel, Mike Glennon, etc. More teams need to go the Aaron Rodgers route and develop their next franchise quarterback imo. They aren't doing these kids any favor coming into an unstable situation with the constant changing of coaches/system and just shattering their confidence throwing them into the fire.

At the end of the day it really doesn't matter what some drafted QB wants to do... it's really not their call.

There isn't 1 piece of anything purple in my home... No tigers either.

Not even accidentally.

And since I started it in this thread ....
Lots of incorrect assumption.

Re: Zach Mettenberger marvels with maturity

I disagree that they should be viewed or treated like kids.

@ 18 an American soldier is given a job that means life or death. About $18k/year. By the time a US Soldier sees the battle field he has been through at least 3 leaders/managers and Units.
@ 23 College graduates go out and get their first job and thrown to the wolves varies from $30k-$$180k/year. This cat has multiple bosses.

These men are making big boy money and allowed to act like spring break college students with zero recourse. Go tell your boss you have 2 DUIs and was just arrested at an airport because of a bomb threat and see how long you are gainfully employed. Make sure you bring those things up at your next interview as well and see how quickly you are hired.

Even more important that the previous examples, a great many of these rookies have had the responsibility of raising their own children...

23 years old and can raise a child but not handle a group of grown men?

They are not children when they enter the NFL but they are handled and treated like children which seems to have zero benefit other than to delay them manning the fk up.

Re: Zach Mettenberger marvels with maturity

You're making this way more serious than it is. I don't even see why it has to even go that route. I'm actually a little disgusted we're even comparing American soldiers to football players.

There's nothing wrong with working your way up the food chain.

Hey, you just graduated college with limited work experience. You want to be the CEO of our company?

Hey, you just got drafted. Here's the keys to our billion dollar franchise. I hope you're ready!

Not the same concepts need to be applied to every single situation in life the same. There's not just one way to do everything.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
