    I do think changing center can't hurt either . Turner been pitiful. He was cleared medically and he did all he needed to do in practice, then go for it. Maybe we get run game going and let jake get ball out quick when need to pass. Who knows. But do think team will be pumped for locker playing.

    Either his injury wasn't as serious as they was telling us or we are taking a huge risk here.

    I'm kinda stuck in limbo on this decision.

    I trust the medical advisors whose asses are on the line if he isn't ready

    Both his injuries were called sprains. The main issue would be soreness and swelling, and I'd guess swelling isn't an issue at this point. He's been medically cleared and he wants to play, so what's everyone so worried about?

    He won't be as mobile and could take big hit. There are a whole lot of QBs in this league that are less mobile than Jake that aren't being held out of a game for fear of a big hit. Some of you guys need to get a grip. If the medical staff cleared him then he isn't at any greater risk for injury than he would otherwise be.

    He'll be fine and the team will be much better.

    Probably both partially true.

    What's crazy is when I look at his film from last year with the bills... Wasn't as bad as it has been here. He was throwing darts in the games I watched. Now it's like... Pls get him off the field... Start rusty instead if we have to go with a backup.
