It will be Flynn if we go to #2. No way they are putting in a rookie. They signed Flynn for that specific reason. Even Brees sucked as a young buck. So did Peyton. I know, I watched them and it took a little while.

i agree he should sit but who here honestly believes Drew will go happy to the bench? he will fight this to the bitter end.

Whats the worst that can happen?

Perhaps his inexperience results in several bad throws that put our WR's and RB's in a position to get hurt? Or he holds on to too long and suffers a career ending injury?

Lets roll the dice, injuries to key players be damned!!!
I whole heartedly agree. One of the biggest mistakes young QBs try to do is force it to their recievers when they are coming across the middle when he is well covered which almost always results in a receiver getting clocked. Bad idea. I dont know why eveyone is so hell bent on seeing him anyway. I doubt he is the future franchise QB and if he is he has plenty of time to sit and learn. Worked for Rodgers.

I said a couple of weeks ago that with nothing to really play for but draft picks, to sit Drew to avoid injury and start Grayson.

Now that the injury has occurred, don't even have Drew dress for any of the remaining games.

Because picked in the 3rd round.

I doubt he is the future franchise QB and if he is he has plenty of time to sit and learn. Worked for Rodgers.
Ah, "worked for Rodgers"... common fallacy to think that Rodgers is as good as he is because he sat behind Favre for 2 years. But for every Aaron Rodgers who sat behind someone for a period of time there is:
An Eli Manning who was "thrown to the wolves" game 9? of his rookie year. Done pretty well for himself.
A Ben Roethlisberger who started from day 1 his rookie year. Done pretty well for himself.
A Russell Wilson who started from day 1 his rookie year. Done pretty well for himself.
A Joe Flacco who started from day 1 his rookie year. Done pretty well for himself.

And those are just the ones with SB rings (6 rings total the past 10 SBs) who come off the top of my head.

And yes, there are plenty of them who were "thrown to the wolves" their first season and failed... but the funny thing, of the recent QBs drafted who sat behind someone for a couple of years and started for the same thing that drafted them (which doesn't really happen much anyway), none of them have had much success, other than Rodgers. So it seems Rodgers is the exception, not the rule. (Cousins is still TBD).

One of the biggest mistakes young QBs try to do is force it to their recievers when they are coming across the middle when he is well covered which almost always results in a receiver getting clocked.
Yes, because only rookies do that. Like Drew never forces throws in the middle or anything.

College football has changed. Players are coming out readier than ever to play in the NFL. Grayson comes from a pro-style college offense, where he was asked to make multiple reads. He also has mobility, and will tuck it and run if no one is open; he can also make those roll out throws that Rodgers is so good at making.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

Yes... better to put in the guy who has not thrown a pass in any game, preseason or regular season, since 2014, who was 7 of 16 for 66 yards the entire 2014, and just got here 4 weeks ago. He surely is not going to make bad throws or hold the ball for too long.
