I heard his explanation and I buy that he's rationalized it that way.
Show me the QB who learned how to handle being blitzed into ineffectiveness in 4 games. I want to know who that guy is. We've seen the good things Case can do and we (along with all the DC's in the league) have seen the things he doesn't do well. What we need to know is whether or not he gets better with some experience.
You don't get experience from the bench.
Additionally if you're not a Case fan and you want to see the UH alums shut up (or make way for the A&M alums if you want to be honest) then you should be adamant that Case be left out there. You don't think he's the answer. You think his ceiling is Rex Grossman-like. Fine. It's a valid opinion unless and until he can manage to prove otherwise. If I felt that way I'd want everyone who won't shut up about Case to see it happen so that when draft comes around they'll shut up about their hero and accept the new QB that gets drafted.
Case needs to play every possible minute of the next 6 games. Fans and critics alike should agree on that completely.
Great post! Now we need to, but most importantly, Case needs to hear Kubiak officially say "Case is our starter for the rest of the season........period!" Case does not at this stage of his development need to feel that he has a hammer looming over his head, just waiting to fall at any moment. As any promising young QB, his confidence as well as his skills must be built up and re-inforced.
