Do we even know that Speight is the starter yet? Apparently, all positions are up for grabs.
Maybe we have a Matt Gutierrez situation again....I don't know why but that thought has been in my mind.Go Blue!!
I think what Scottsdale is trying to say is that Speight throws like my sister. And I agree with BHF, SB, et al. that there's no way Speight doesn't start the first several games. For me, he's shaky but Harbaugh knows what he's doing.
As I said before couldn't his injury account for his throwing? His first 9 games he's was: 149-231 2053 yds 15 TD 3 int and 64%. Two of those games were blowouts and only played in part of those games. The last three he was: 45-100 485 yds 3 TD 4 int and 45%. Now granted the completion was different, but I still think it is hard to judge with the injury that he had. Just my opinion.
We had guys running open on crossing routes and on posts and on flag routes, etc and all throughout the secondary in most games and he missed them over 60% of them during the season. He needs to get better at completing balls down the field fatther than 5 yards past the LOS.Go Blue!!
I'm taking the talker at his word that all positions are up for grabs.QB is like a hockey goalie from a controversy standpoint. Do you go with the "better" guy or the more-experienced guy? And if you do start the younger, better guy, what can/will that do to the other guy's head? Will it crush him, or push him? If it's the latter then it's a win-win starting Peters knowing you can always fall back on a motivated guy who started 12 games last year.Or maybe I was a Flyers fan for too many years and I shoehorn in a goaltending analogy even when it doesn't apply.
