Don't get me wrong, I want our team to be better for the long term, but every year is an opportunity to so "something". Look at Green Bay and Indy. They are among the youngest teams in the league. Yet they are more than competitive.
Fast forward to our team. I thought it was a joke when we played three QBs in our home opener vs. our biggest "rival". We didn't want to win the game. We, Herm and staff, want to evaluate players. Now we need to see which QBs on our roster can play or be cut. Unfortunately, not that I would, I can't get my money back from DirecTV. I think we can rebuild (or build) while maintaining a chance of winning. Right now, Huard gives us the best chance of winning.
Here's an excerpt from kcchiefs.com:
Q: This sounds that it’s more about an opportunity to look at him and develop him as opposed to try to beat the Falcons.
EDWARDS: “No, we’re trying to beat the Falcons. We feel that what we’re trying to do this week we’ll have a great chance to be successful.
Q: This is not then part of the overall plan to develop a young quarterback?
EDWARDS: “Well it is. He’s having a chance to play in the system. He’s got some talent. He hasn’t played a lot. We know that. We just felt we’d go with him this week. If he struggles a lot and it gets too big for him Damon’s always a guy who can come off the sideline and get the team going.”
Q: Was this the plan all along? Were you always going to start him?
EDWARDS: “I don’t know if it was the plan all along. It’s just where we’re at right now. It’s a decision we made as a staff. It’s week to week. Hopefully, he can hang in there and play well and get us a win and stay in there. That’s how we’re looking at it.”
Q: Why does he give you a better chance than Damon?
EDWARDS: “We just look at where we’re at as a football team. We’re constantly trying to evaluate players. We’re trying to grow a quarterback. Well, when do you grow em? They can’t grow unless they play. He needs to play. We know where Damon’s at. We know who he is. He’s a good quarterback.”
