Is Rosen going to start in Miami now? Or is he going to sit and they let Fitzmagic get some work?
Probably let Fitz go at it first. No point letting Rosen get destroyed by an incomplete OL and WR crew that's still trying to figure itself out. Better in the 2nd half when (if) the line and receivers develops any kind of chemistry after a couple of games. Rosen will likely win the job but the team will send the pawns out to battle first.
Of those, I think Ledbetter, Watson, Hanks, and Calhoun have the best chance of sticking around on the Practice Squad or maybe depth on roster. Ledbetter is a solid run-stuffing DE. Watson and Hanks are good sized ILB's with quality experience and demeanor. Calhoun is a hardy doesn't quit guard with very raw technique.
▪ Former NFL quarterback and ex-ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer, on The Rich Eisen Show on Sirius XM: “The fit is perfect. That’s what I texted Josh when it happened. I was like, ‘Dude, great fit. It hurts now but you will be thankful for this. You are going to an academic system.’
“And that’s what Josh needs is an academic approach to football -- highly intellectual, [a system with] a lot of burden put on the quarterback. High level of sophistication in both scheme and training. That’s what will bring the most out of him. Josh Rosen needs to be challenged. He needs every single day to feel everyone is challenging him.
“He’s Aaron Rodgers. He’s basically an Aaron Rodgers clone in how they demand excellence from everybody and it brings more out of them when you put that burden on him. And that’s what the Patriot Way is and that’s what they’re bringing to Miami.
“Plus Jim Caldwell has a track record of dealing with all kinds of academic type quarterbacks. Maybe the most cerebral one of all time in Peyton Manning. It’s a brilliant fit for Josh.”
