As we have all been recently informed, it seems like Tate's bruised shoulder is more than just a bruised shoulder. If he is not healthy enough to play v. Sparty, can we win with Shoelace playing the majority of the game? He had a pretty solid drive v. Indiana, but its still pretty evident that his passing skills aren't quite as polished as Tate's. In the few plays where he actually attempted a pass, he has made numerous bad reads and bad decisions. Is this just a premature evaluation based on a small sample size? Can we win with Shoelace if Tate is down?
