That is the best reason for starting someone. Why waste a year that you aren't competing in starting a garbage QB, while you could see what you have with your rookie QB. Nobody sits their rookie QB anymore, unless they already have a franchise QB.
If Geno shows hes the best QB in camp, he should start. Even if its even he should start, since he has the best chance at being our future.
I'm not gonna argue with your logic. its valid. i mean a year exp on a throwaway season with no pressure will teach him more then holding a clip board ever will.
On the other side though giving him no run game, no WRs, and a bad o-line could rattle his confidence. look at mark. his 1st 2 seasons he was confident. he had good Wrs, he had a good oline and a good run game. then he lost it and lost his confidence. i don't want to see geno suffer from "david carr" syndrome. I really think carr could have been an awesome QB if houston didn't draft him and start him right away with nothing around him. and with mark its win win. He does good, he raises his trade value, he does bad and his value is too low to go down and we get a high pick anyway.
