    I dont see this, as we'll be grooming our starting QB for next season. I think that whoever comes out of the spring will be getting some real reps and ecperience to prepare...so, just dont see blake being the #2 guy

    Kind of sounds like they may be told that they're not going to be starting on the team, and may decide to transfer out.

    After watching and looking at these guys I think Luke Del Rio will be the best out of them this year.. Blake still wants to go to the NFL so I think he may still play some QB but will be used else where too.

    Re: QB's

    Unless one of the young ones truly stands out in the spring I think Blake will be the backup again, especially initially, simply because he has some game experience.

    Who the next starter will be is a complete toss up at this point. Morris has a rocket arm and is big. Bateman is a superb passer, I know little about Mcleod, Ely is a capable game manager. I really think Del Rio is going to surprise a lot of folks.

    We'll find out in the spring.

    I agree with those who've said that we'll want next years starter to get some real game experience this year. Therefore, whoever comes out of fall camp as the #2 shouldn't red shirt IMO.

    Problem here is LDR will have to count against #s this year if he plays next year. Of course, IF he turns out to be the best option then I'm sure CNS will figure out how the numbers will work.

    But, at any rate, I can't imagine a scenario of going into 2014 and not having already identified the "future" qb by giving him some playing time this year.
