    so this is the death of me.  Hearing this for the rest of eternity. 

     

    Look, this site likes to circlejerk around everything. Just wait it through and let the player actually develop a bit and find out what works best for him. Not all pocket QBs are the same, some are better at some parts of the game than they are at others. We're 5 games into a player's career. It's a rough start, but let it happen. Forget everyone else, because a circlejerk is too easy to join in.

    This is why I think we were the best place for AJJ. We were willing to let him develop and have a decent team around him to start his career. We thought he had the biggest upside and was the biggest risk. We want to have him here and add something that Atlanta hasn't had in the time that I've known it: a passing threat. He just needs time and we are willing to wait with him. He will be fine once he develops and makes strides. Hopefully we can figure out what he likes and try to facilitate that the best that we can. Until then, we are just going to have to take the burden of the circlejerking.

    Well I would have let him develop as a backup/sometimes starter for at least a year before throwing him in. This wouldn't have been possible a few seasons ago when everyone had barely enough players, but now well managed teams (especially the superbowl champs) should have the resources to pull this off. You shouldn't have to sacrifice your team's fan opinion and playoff chances when you're coming off a hot season.
