Rant Sports thinks Blaine Gabbert is surprisingly optimistic about QB competition
“The best guy is going to win. That’s why this sport is so intriguing to people and so fun to be a part of. The competition is daily. Every practice will be a mini-game. You need to put your best foot forward regardless of the situation. That uncomfortable feeling is a good feeling and that’s why good teams are successful – because they have that competition. It’s going to be a blast.”
I really like these comments, as it shows maturity and a competitive nature from Gabbert. At the same time, he’s just being realistic, because he knows that he’ll have to earn the starting job this season. I’m sure he’s well aware that five wins in two seasons, isn’t going to cut it in the NFL.
“Oh yeah, we were hitting them all,” said Bradley, whose message invigorated players. “Our plan is going to be really simple. Michelangelo, he used three primary colors and look at what he did. Beethoven used seven notes and look at what he did. It was more along those lines. We don’t have to be over complicated in our house.
“Maybe to the offense, maybe to the defense that’s watching us on film it appears that way, but we’re going to teach and really understand with simple concepts.”
