I look around the league and see a lot of rookies and first time QBs working their teams towards very good records. I completely understand that Mike Martz's system is one that is unique and complex, but Caleb Hanie has been in the system for a couple of years tearing the first-team defense apart in practice. He proved his valor during the NFC Championship game last year and putting up good numbers against one of the best teams in NFL history (Damn, it kills me to say that!!!). Granted, he does not possess the arm strength of Jay Cutler, but what he lacks in strength he makes up for with his motivation for an NFL contract next year. He set the record his senior year at Colorado State for accuracy percentage! This is a young man with an opportunity to put up a significant audition for teams looking for a veteran QB next year (i.e. Matt Cassell/Chiefs). If Cam Newton, Tim Tebow, and Andy Dalton can compete in this league, I fail to see why there is so much angst towards Caleb Hanie with a prolific defense, second-to-none Special Teams, and a potent running back. Mr. Hanie, to you I say this, "Put on your best Trent Dilfer, manage the game, take a few low risks to show off your talent, and keep that seat warm for one Jay Cutler!"
Will Caleb Hanie be starting in the NFL next year?
