I know it is almost never heard of, but not impossible for a freshman (true freshman) to win that starting spot. The fact is that Denker knew the system to a tee and ran it like it was his own. Used his legs to his advantage to buy more time and to get wide so he could see the field. He could read the field even during a break down of a play. Now we fast forward to this fall and people have laughed at my remarks, but there will not be a QB on the roster that will KNOW the system better than RR. Rhett knows the system already. Rhett reads the D very well. He needs the year to physically develope a little more, but it is a very good option at the end of the bench if things turn south. Denker's arm did not win the starting role, but command of the O did! Bet Rhett can do that 2 weeks into camp.
The second Tate could also be a great option if he is in game shape. Big if! The kid from Georgia could be something special as well knowing how RR has done with QBs in the past. None are the ideal situation, but if RR is really on the hot seat as to.say, job security will prevent him from saving for a future date. All stops will be out this year!
