I'd have felt better about it had he learned it sometime during the 8 games he started.
To contrast, Andrew Luck was sacked 41 times for 246 yards. (6 yards/sack)
Henne, in his first 13 games (his sophomore season) was sacked 26 times for 176 yards. (2 yards/sack)
Nick Foles started 6 games as a rookie (drafted in the third) 20 sacks for 131 yards (6.55 yards/sack)
Undrafted Tony Romo started 10 games in his 4th season, 21 sacks 124 yards. (5.9 yards/sack)
Keenum, 19 for 201. (10 yards/sack).
I don't think I'm asking too much. I'm questioning the decisions this kid made & imo, this is an example of where he made the wrong decision time & time again. Red Flag... that's all I'm saying.
Again, I want the kid to succeed more than any QB on our roster at this time. The only thing that I argue is that he "deserves" a chance to prove that he can play better than he did last year. Yes, he was on a bad team last year. But that bad team had a bad QB, bad even for a rookie.
