The whole we need a vet to mentor stuff is bullpoo IMO. Not only do they not mentor but vets still think they should be starters.
You would be pissed if your employer came to you and said, "Hey train this guy for a year so we can fire you please"
That is essentially what happened when Stewart was drafted over Deangelo's head. You are right though. QB's are different all-together.Some guys like Mcnabb, Leinart, Matt Hasselbeck, etc. still want to be starters, so you have a point there. But guys like Leftwich, Pennington, Sage Rosenfel, Etc., you let them know from the jump what the deal is before you bring them in, and they will play the role. But yea, the whole mentoring thing is bullshit. Basically it is buying time until the prospect is ready. Mentor is just a word the front office and media like to use for whatever reason. It is just buying time. Shula and Chud are the mentors. Not some damn vet.
