The one thing above all others I don't want is to force a rookie QB to learn on the job with no recourse if that plan fails. One of the smartest ways to do that is to not waste the resources we've already spent on Brissett in order to make a knee-jerk move for a name brand guy for just 1-2 bridge years.
I think we solve our QB issues in the draft, and use next year to measure the strength of the roster and bring the new QB up to speed in a conservative manner, taking our sweet time to get him ready to go before we throw him to the wolves.
If we wind up playing above ourselves and making the playoffs so be it but this team is still quite young, and I think the #1 goal is to develop our young personnel into professionals. if we do it right a playoff appearance will be the obvious consequence anyway. It's the decision to panic and play mad scientist on a rebuild that by and large is working beautifully so far, that will lead to disaster.
