Don't get your hopes up if you're looking for a change at QB. I'll predict right now that Luke Del Rio comes out of the fall as the starter.
It makes sense to me. Del Rio doesn't have the strongest arm, that would be Franks. Del Rio isn't an elusive runner, that would be Zaire. Having the most Gator game experience and deepest knowledge of the offense gives Del Rio a nearly insurmountable advantage in remaining the starter.
Del Rio can execute all the playbook and make most of the throws. He serves as an extension of the OC on the field and can get the most out of the other players. There's a leadership and cerebral side of the QB position.
When all factors are considered, don't be surprised when Luke Del Rio remains our starting QB.
That would be the biggest middle finger ever to a fan base that's been through hell with their QB position since 2010.
Just reading that thread title made me throw up in my mouth a little.
Del Rio is a horrible QB. I don't care how deep his knowledge is of the offense - he isn't skilled enough to execute it. What good is it to know an offense inside and out when you can't make over half the throws anyway? He should quit attempting to play the game of football and take his "knowledge" into the coaching ranks, where it can perhaps be of some service. I'm sure his father could arrange an entry level position within the Raiders organization to get his career underway.
I hope Mac would have enough courtesy to make that announcement at least a few days in advance of the game in Dallas so I can bail out and save some money. I'll have to eat the airfare, but I could still cancel the hotel rooms and rental car.
I know some probably think I'm joking, but I'm not. I refuse to watch a scrub like Luke Del Rio play QB for us anymore. I'm done. Especially when we'll have Zaire and Franks on the roster. Even Trask, as awful as he is, would be worth more of a look just based on his height, arm strength, and decent running ability. And make no mistake, I'm hoping Trask transfers to clear space, but I'm just saying...anything but Del Rio again. I can't take that type of limited QB play anymore.
