Almost as funny as starting Sage over a guy we just traded two 2nds & gave a starter's contract. Or starting Tj over that same guy who was considered a top 10 QB at that time (the beginning of the 2012 season).
It's all funny. Same joke, different punchline. It was goofy & unrealistic to think as much about Schaub replacing Vick. It was goofy & unrealistic to think Sage or Tj would replace Schaub.
badboy is right, if Schaub or Tj flashed like Russell Wilson did (in practice mind you) they would have been starting. Yes, Vick was a rockstar, & Schaub was a pro bowl MVP, but if they led their coach to believe they had a better chance of winning, they would have been starters.
