I would not go by rankings from 247.....

on the #17 dual threat QB. I haven't seen anything yet from any of our QB's to indicate who should be the starter and apparently the coaches haven't either. Alhers may be the answer but I can tell you for a fact that, unless we go to the wishbone, having him either run the ball or hand off is not going to win many (if any) games. Period. And, regardless of what he did in HS, he has not shown the ability -YET- to be a successful passing QB. We signed a QB rated higher than him and that didn't work out so well. We also signed another QB who was setting national passing records and he started one game in his career and was pulled in the first quarter after throwing two successive pick sixes. On the other hand, our 3 best QB's were on no-one's radar as a QB and two of them went on to successful NFL careers. Carden wasn't even "good enough" in HS to get a star rating. How did he turn out?
