Your last sentence just buttressed my case.
It depends on the situation.
Also like how Hoyer looked for ALL of his 3 Career starts , and he only finished 2 of them.
i'm a big hoyer fan but i can't see him holding off manzier for too long unless he just plays lights out. possible but seems a bit of a long shot.
At the very latest, we see Manziel taking over Kyle Shanahan's offense by Week 5, following the Browns' Week 4 bye.
That's pretty presumptuous. Hoyer looked pretty good before he got hurt last season.
Let's keep it In the proper perspective, he played all of 9 quarters of football, and he is coming off of an ACL surgery.
Manziel will likely be the starter, unless he just sucks out loud all thru camp.
In your opinion, what are the criteria for choosing the starter?
In this case , Manziel just needs to be as good as Hoyer, or maybe even just close.
You see, the current HMFIC have nothing invested in Hoyer and a First round pick invested in Manziel.
Yeah, kind of sucks for Hoyer, but he is who he is, a 5 year journeyman backup with very little playing time to his name.
If the Browns are to hit on their first round pick of Manziel, he Should be able to beat that out for the starters job.
Time will tell.
So... Where a player is taken in the draft should be the determining factor when selecting a starter, right? Being taken #22 overall automatically makes you a better QB, right?
What made the difference between #22 (Weedon) and Hoyer last year?
Last year, Hoyer was clearly the better QB, yet Weeden got the nod, they had more invested in Weeds and needed to see if it would blossom.
You can hate the process , but it is , what it is.
I suppose, if that's the result you want, that's the criterion you should use.
Clearly Hoyer was superior, last year. He is more experienced reading defenses and his release was WAY superior to Weeden. If JF$ is as good in those categories, he should yield equal or better results. If not, he should wait until he is.
BTW, Weeds was not a rookie last year. He was the incumbent starter.
