    I do not want to see Rosen start a single game this season. He needs to stay on the sidelines his first year. Needs to be eased into the NFL.

    Sorry but that's complete and total BS. Depends on the player and plenty of NFL heavy hitters that don't agree either.

    Could be true, but I want to see Bradford as the starter as long as he's playing good.

    I want Bradford to start the majority of the games. But, I don't want to see Bradford struggle through 16 games if he's not succeeding.

    If Josh is kicking ass in practice, and Bradford is struggling with pain or otherwise, let's get him in.

    I want to see Bradford start and then Rosen can start next year after the online gets better. Bradford can be the sacrificial lamb.

    I think people are failing to realize how good Bradford is. If he’s healthy and we are technically in contention, I would be shocked to see Rosen get the nod at all this year.

    You don't pay a guy $20 million to sit the bench.

    I wonder how much work Bradford will get this offseason? Seems like hes being held back. If he doesn't get much time will he be rusty? This is a concern for me. I am not against Rosen not seeing the field but i would let play dictate that. Unfortunately i can't see bradford staying healthy and Rosen will most likely play at some point. Hopefully he can hold up until at least week 6 or so... We will see

    If it's merit based, I rather doubt Rosen will start over Bradford in year one. I'd rather have Rosen watch watch Bradford does, how he prepares, etc, then have just given the job.

    People forget how good Bradford is and can be when healthy. It is accurate to say that Bradford is in the top 5% for accuracy in the NFL all time.

    For me it all depends on how the Oline is playing, SW says they are the strength of the team but I'm very skeptical at this point. McCoy should have a "get the ball out quick" passing attack and I think we all expect we run the ball a ton. If that's the case then this Oline might be good enough that our QB's won't get hammered like Palmer was the past couple of years.

    I don't want to "David Carr" Rosen. Bradford has plenty of time to get the reps he needs during TC so it makes sense to me for Rosen to get more reps in OTA's.

    If the Oline is solid enough it would be great to see Rosen get playing time this year. What would be better is that Bradford stays healthy and finally has his break out year and the Cards storm into the playoffs.

    It’s only 20 if he hits incentives.... and you play the best option regardless of salary

    The good ones don't need to be eased in. If Rosen can go, you play him. Period.
