    Stafford will be better than Culpepper, if not now then soon.

    Re: What do you do when you go 0-16?

    Yeah, I guess they learned nothing from starting Joey Harrington from the git go. Maybe Harrington wasn't meant to be an NFL QB, but having your confidence wrecked from the very beginning because you had to play behind a Lion's O-line certainly helped out in the process of him becoming the basketcase that he is today.

    Stafford has all the tools but IMO he is not a winner. Doesn't have the intangibles.

    This. It has ruined many a good young QB. As soon as you have the hebbie-jeebies in the pocket that early in your career, you have it forever. The best thing a rookie QB can do is sit and watch for 4 years.... absorb, learn, play but not be that have to have player.

    Yeah, people out here still talk about what happened to Harrington. He never got a chance to learn anything before getting thrown into the fire. Some guys can handle that, he obviously didn't. It could happen again. You just never know.....Falcons and Ravens did okay with rookies last year.

    That would be my concern for Stafford. This could get really ugly for him.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: What do you do when you go 0-16?

    If the kid can handle it and learn while doing it, he should be in there since he's their future.

    But there is also the side of it that keep mentions where some players can't handle it and it ruins them.

    Each player is different and the situation can really only be handled with an indepth knowledge of Stafford and his mindset.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
