Two things strike me:
1. If Tate Forcier was out of the mix at QB and just a non-factor, you "don't take his wings" and take other action aimed at sending a message if he is a non-factor, he would just be a non-factor and that would be that. With all the speculation about Tate being the odd man out, there is just something about the way Rodriguez is approacing it that tells me that is not the case.
2. Notwithstanding #1, if Tate is not odd man out, you cannot possibly justify not red-shirting Devin Gardner, which makes the water even more murky. The only possible scenario if that were the case would be that Tate is injury prone, and there is no faith in D-Rob as the backup. With all of the pre-season discussion about Robinson's improvement and so forth, that seems highly unlikely.
Could this actually take shape as a 3 quarterback system. It seems idiotic, but nothing would surpise me at this point after the last two years and this off-season.
Something tells me that the "QB Situation" is not going to resolve itself with just naming a starter and that is that. There is something up at QB and I can't wait to find out what it is. I get the feeling we may see if the Devin Gardner-Vince Young comparison has any legs sonner than we all thought.
