Can I ask why the hell the Steelers waste time with non-QB athletes rather than bring an actual QB into camp?
i have an idea that it involves the lack of reps the 3rd or 4th guy is going to get. if you're going to be forced to use a guy who hasn't gotten reps, at least an athlete can come in in a stopgap role and make a play or two. A non-athlete QB trainee won't know WTF he's doing AND won't have had any reps AND won't have physical tools he can use when all else fails.
Just a theory.
I agree on the reps but you will need to find some...I 100% disagree that "A non-athlete QB trainee won't know WTF he's doing" (example TJ Yates)
IMO he did well because of his mental makeup not his athletic ability and he was the #3 on that roster so either they were finding reps for him or just doing a great job outside of reps. I also think that the coaching staff and front office are 100% into him and his ability so they have a true belief and trust in him from the get go...
