Becasue he loves Geno adn doesn't see him as a "backup" down the road? IIRC, Steve McNair sat the bench for his first two seasons before becoming the starter for the Titans.
Also it's very telling that they haven't restructured Alex's deal to this point. He's basically playing with us on a two year deal.
