    • I was not a fan of the Hack pick, but I do see why it was made and Im rooting for him because its the best thing for the team. That being said, your point is actually 2 separate things.  I was and still am 100% in favor of giving him the redshirt season, there was no reason to run him out there in the last game or 2 to get killed behind a team that had given up weeks earlier.  Confidence is extremely important and it was smart to not play him. However, it is atrocious how little time Gailey spent developing him.  Should he have gotten practice reps with the 1s or 2s during game weeks, definitely no, but Gailey admitting that they couldn't work with him is insane to me.  I dont know how an NFL team works, but would it be completely crazy to simply hire an additional QB coach to work on footwork etc with him in-season?   Keeping his confidence in tact was an important step in his development given his college career, but we could have done A LOT more with him last year had we had guys like morton/bates here.  Really a travesty that more wasn't done.
    • The key is, QBs are more pass/fail, while with other positions, you decide how much more a great player is than a good one.  I tend to look at it more like Bill Walsh, you look at the player and what you think you can get out of him rather than just comparing numbers or bodies.  At that point, the #1 QB might be worth a couple or three #1s.  I assume that is what they did with Hackenberg, though the fact he was so far away makes it pretty speculative and the fact that they completely changed offenses makes that theory suspect.
    • Except there is really nothing to suggest that Hack does not know the scheme. In fact a couple reporters tweeted that Hack actually looked the most comfortable in getting into the play and making adjustmnets at the LOS in yesterdays practice.
