Responding to Hawg on the QB

If you go back and look at my posts, I posted a couple of times the QB was not going to be who everyone thought (Lewis). Shrout was going to be the starting QB. And I expect him to be next year. The coaches were very, very high on him. Good size, great arm, surprising speed and good with the pre snap reads.

As for Lewis, they thoguht he could be really good too, but just was not quite as polished as Shrout. I have been very disappointed with what I have seen. He looks a whole lot more like Bernard Jackson than Kordell Stewart. Indecisive, slow on his reads and constantly stares down his intended WR. But I also don't think the coaches are giving him a game plan that suits his abilities. I saw Gary Barnett and Shawn Watson create masterful game plans for Robert Hodge that played to his strengths (and there were not many). I find it hard to believe that Lewis cannot be more effective than Hodge.

He had better improve quickly or I think Carter will be starting. Basically, Shrout's injury has turned a very promising season into to what has the makings of a dumpster fire.
