I'm fine with him backing up Russ. This would be his first time sitting behind a QB that is clearly better than him! Sure there would be hype but it would die out because there would not be a QB controversy with Russ at the helm. The last place he needs to be right now is behind a shaky starting QB. Let him be a backup and maybe learn a thing or 2. Or better yet, hopefully he'd just change to a TE or a HB.
