This was a case of "if you think you have two QBs you really have none"
Stats and Ability be damned, Grbac was anti-clutch, a quitter, and possessed no fire for the game.
Gannon, on the other hand, lacked the physical capabilities of traditional star quarterbacks, but almost always possessed an ability to come through when it mattered most.
