    Place some of your arrowcash on this wager in the fantasy sportsbook. I'm betting on Croyle, but hoping for Huard.

    I just think it would be a nightmare if we started with Croyle, then had to replace him with Huard. If Huard struggled, then we would have to go back to Croyle.

    Where if we just start with Huard, it would be easier to move to Croyle if Huard struggled since Croyle is our "QB of the future". Also, Huard played pretty well last year.

    I do agree with you. Damon did a great job last year when he stepped in when Trent got hurt. I think we should give Damon his shot to start for us. If he struggles throw the young gun in. What would it hurt to give Damon his chance? No matter what, Tony will make either of the QB's look good no matter who's slinging the pigskin at him.

    I'm in the same boat. If we let the kid start, there is a good chance that his confidence could get crushed. If we start Huard and he struggles, then Croyle may feel better about struggling, himself.

    My thoughts are here. Let me just say that I disagree that we should play it safe. We've been doing that for how long? How many times has that worked out for us?

    Under the circumstances, I can't see it as being safe, but as being smart. If we destroy Croyles confidence, what do we do about the future?

    What kind of confidence are we giving him if we're basically saying we don't trust that he can handle starting? Ths is the NFL, not Mighty Mites.

    True, hate to waste Croyle now to jeopardize the future. That's why I think Damon would be better. He proved last year he could when and was once behind Peyton when Trent took back over. Let Damon start this year and play Brodie from time to time to get him some confidence then set him loose next year.

    Or we end up starting Huard again because he started this year. We end up trading Croyle because we haven't given him a chance to prove himself starting, he ends up being a superstar somewhere else, and we end up saying, "Man, I wish we would have taken a chance on him."

    Look at how David Carr performed. It took him several years to get his act together. Then look at Phillip Rivers.

    Alot of guys get the feeling that they can't do it, if they play poorly, when the start for the first time.

    As far as what kind of confidence we are giving...

    It's not that we don't trust him to start, but that Huard has earned it. Or, at least, that's what we let him believe. We owe it to Damon to afford him that opportunity. That and we want him to be "seasoned". Those goofy words tend to work, when the coach uses them to the young players.
