    Fitz is better, and backup QB is a position that we have used a lot in the last few seasons, no need to downgrade at that position. Worry about our other holes!!!

    I'm telling you Wis knows what he's doing. We must tank for Winston next season.

    TitansWillWin2 beat me to it.

    I have been thinking about this for the last 10 minutes and I think that could be the plan. Go all in with Jake this year. If he sucks or gets hurt again you tank the season to get as high of a pick as you can. That way you're in the running for Winston, Mariota, or Petty.

    In this scenario, it's like Whis is buying himself an extra year. If it doesn't work with Jake, he can just say "This wasn't my guy, I didn't draft him. Let me get the guy of my choosing in here and things will get better."

    We'd save
    $3,250,000 by cutting Fitz, Whitehurst would be cheaper and knows Whiz's system.

    Arguably nobody has a grasp on the playbook. It hasn't been finished yet...

    Replacing Fitz with Whitehurst is like building a bridge and intentionally leaving out some nuts and bolts.

    I dont not believe Whiz is sabotaging his first season as HC here.

    The dude can play ball and is clutch. He is an excellent passer.

    To start we do not save much cap by cutting Fitzy his salary is $2.75M so subtract what it would cost in salary for any replacement. You can't get back any bonuses already paid to him so that is all you can save.The $3.25M figure given previously is not correct.

    Whitehurst is not even a viable #2 with a career 64 passing rating. A #3 only. With Locker's injury history it would be moronic to save a million in cap money that way.
