A little perspective on Allen

I want you to imagine something. Imagine we had taken Allen with the third round pick this season instead of Grier.

Now let the season play out as it has and you'd have a third round pick playing undefeated and actively being a part of those victories.

You'd be shouting the praises of the guy, the pick and our future.

The kid has earned some adulation and many, many hurrahs. 

No slam at all on Cam, but if your draft pick comes off the bench and wins out not just one game, but three in a row, you have a reason to cheer. 

It is interesting discussion. 

We, including myself, just have a strong emotional attachment to Cam.  We have been defending him for years and we feel we need to protect him now even more so.  

Kyle Allen deserves a ton of credit. He's been solid and he is capable of getting better. We should all be happy an thankful because 3 weeks ago people were looking at the draft.  If Sunday is Kyles last game starting, we need to remember he helped save our 2019-2020 season.  I thought it was over for sure, and now we have a chance.

In what world is Grier a bust after playing in ZERO regular season games. 

This.

Allen’s play means we don’t know what Grier may or may not become, and if you’re going to point to the preseason as any indicator, remember that’s the same preseason in which Allen looked like nothing special and certainly not someone we’d expect to go 3-0 if Cam was out.

I'm honestly unclear on why it even needs any conditions added.

Our backup QB is helping is win games. Why the hell would anyone with any sense see this as anything other than a good thing? 

Because agendas.

We have no idea what he is until he gets tested, so judging him now is crazy. In game situations, he might ball hard.

The team won those games. He’s been decent, but let’s stop it like the defense and CMC hasn’t carried him. He almost gave the game away last game.

But In reality we wasted our 3rd round pick on a Bust QB so...

Haven’t seen him play any this year, maybe you can tell me when he did

Right, but if your expectation is that your 2nd year backup qb should be capable of putting the team on his shoulders and carrying the team to victory, you might as well tell the kid to grow a mustache.
