You could argue that they drafted a QB in 2002 when they drafted him in 2001; but Spurrier is a certifiable Gator nut and Sage went to Iowa St - so the point is not that he did not start, but they talked about him as a starter, when Lucas is obviously not playing well enough to start.
I can't say I want Sage starting, but this post was completey devoid of any intelligent thought. Spurrier is no genius when it comes to QB. His relations with his QB probably cost him at least won national crown, and his choice of QBs in Wash will cost him a playoff shot.
The same was said about Tim Levcik. I am not sure if you said it, but many who went to training camp said the same thing, and he isn't even in the NFL now. You have to be rebuilding to put a QB like Sage in as your starter. Like and other 4th round QB he will have many growing pains. He might turn out to be great, but it would take a year or two of assimilating to the game. The Dolphins just don't have the time to invest in a ? at QB right now. If we cut half the team like the Ravens did then I would be all for giving him a shot. Right now I would feel more comfortable with Ray in, yes even Ray. The odds would be that Sage would look like Fassani or even worse than Ray if he started his first game this week.Originally posted by Migs182005
I've seen sage in practice, the guy looks awesome. I think he might be our man of the future. he's good
UMMMMMM...there's a complete breakdown in the logic here considering the fact that Rosenfels never actually played for Spurrier!! Rosenfels was only there in preseason, Spurrier had his two boys Waffle and Matty starting and didn't give Sage a chance. I'm not saying this guy is the second coming of Marino here but I am saying that he deserves a shot.
