Reading a recent thread, viewtopic.php?f=2&t=55883&start=100, I was struck by the relative absence of man-crushing and gushing over Josh Portis, compared to the pre-RW emergence timeframe.
Does anyone still love Josh Portis, and does he merit a place on this team going forward, or is it time to start looking for a new man-crush as our developmental QB? I'm assuming Flynn is our game-ready backup QB, so primarily interested in the developmental QB with upside who could challenge for full backup role or eventually, even to start.
Scenario: RW goes down in the 1st quarter of the Miami game broke a hand on a defender helmet in throwing motion, out for 5-6 weeks, Flynn goes down at the end of the 2nd quarter making a tackle after throwing a pick, leaving us with Portis to finish out the second half of the Miami game and the rest of the season. Are we all terrified of that prospect?
Honestly, Portis showed me *nothing* in preseason, and truthfully, less than nothing, i.e., negative plays, and just looked lost.
Word is JP is RW's study partner (interestingly, not Flynn; what does that mean, if anything?)
So, do we keep Portis around? Why/based on what value he provides? (I'm open to seeing it, I'm sure there's data I don't have) Or are we are looking for a new man-crush for our developmental QB, and if so, who/where should we be looking? Are guys like Kirk Cousins and Nick Foles a better bet (not saying we could/should get either, just examples of two other late-round rookie QBs that have played and done OK in limited action; BTW, Foles looks like CBJ 2.0), or do we truly need a highly mobile QB as our developmental QB?
