But if you don't do it that way then you wind up with Brooks Bollinger and Chris Redman fighting to see who's the better QB because typically its QBs of that caliber that are looking for "a chance to compete".
Not that I agree, but I think that is the point some folks are trying to make. They don't think Matt is light-years ahead of Sage right now. And if given an even chance, Sage could win the starter spot.
Talentwise, right now, there isn't light-years difference between the two. But Matt is younger and therefore, theoretically, has more upside. Sage would have to be significantly
better, which he isn't at this moment in time, to pull a Romo and bump Matt out of the starter's job.
