For anyone with any sense of NFL history to assert this is just ludicrous. Where in practice? It is a rare event to see a top tier, highly paid QB benched without injury for a backup based on practice (no Alex Smith does not count and even there injury was involved). Eventually aging QB's are let go and there are certainly some exceptions but they are rare. Brady - started because of injury. Rodgers - didn't start until Favre was dumped. Young - didn't start until an oft-injured (including the whole prior season) Montana was dumped. It took Bob Lilly at the request of the team going to Tom Landry to get Staubach to start. That is the meat.
