Where you seem to miss is that you think it impossible for a large group of people to study the same subject and come up with the same answer.
I have a lot of respect for Bortles. He is my #2 QB this year. Bridgewater is my #1. I did my own research and formed my own opinion. It just so happens that a lot of people hold that same opinion after also doing their own research.
Did some people just so happen to see that Bridgewater was considered the top guy and decide to jump on board without making their own decision? Certainly. Did a lot of people do the same exact thing with Bortles when he started to gain steam during the second half of this season? Certainly.
Having a different opinion than the majority doesn't mean that you aren't the one falling victim to the flavor of the day.
