Dick LeBeau and the Steeler defense would eat him alive.
I get what you're saying, yes, a real trial by fire.
But the way i see it, this guy was, ostensibly, drafted to play QB in the NFL and he's been in training for two years... to me its a sink or swim proposition, sure he's going to lose and take some lumps, but thats the whole point.
Its time to see what he has and doesnt have, that'll be even easier than normal to discern against a top defense, i dont care if it ruins his football confidence for life... if it does, he wouldnt have been any damn good anyway and we would know it and could move on.
Honestly, can he TRULY be any worse than what we've already been subjected to?
