Agreed. Heinicke made an impression on me too. I'm hoping he has the chance to demonstrate that it was down to innate ability and not just a one off because if that happens we have our guy for the future, with more than capable back up from Fitz for 2021

The idea is just to have a young solid quarterback and have that position wrapped up for the foreseeable future, and hope that nothing catastrophic happens to the dude.
Hindsight about RG3 is 20/20 but at the time everyone in WFT nation thought the QB spot was locked up for the foreseeable future. Turns out that future was less that 2 years.

He was having a decent year in Miami last year.

At best I expect a decent year. At worst I expect an average close to what our combined qb's did last year.

Alls I know is it should be entertaining, hopefully mostly good and a few "wtf kinda throw was that Fitz" moments mixed in.

He has played his best ball over the last couple years and we actually have a pretty good team in place around him. This is a one year stop gap at the moment and he cannot be worse than Haskins or a broken Alex Smith so that is why I am holding out hope. Add in Heineken and I think we have the best quarterback squad since 2012.

If Fitz has been a failure everywhere heís gone, what do you call QBs that wash out and donít get extended or even get an opportunity to play for a second club, much less 9?!

Definitely thought we were good to go, though there were mumblings in the background saying his style and his build were not sustainable.
I still dont think you give up on chasing the quarterback though. Probably 75 percent of championship teams during the Superbowl era had that guy. Off the top of my head there is Williams, Rypien, Dilfer, Foles, and Jim McMahon that didnít fit that franchise quarterback mold. Rodgers, Aikman, Bradshaw, Brady, Montana , Young, Breese, Mahommes, Warner, Staubach, Wilson, Favre, Big Ben - those are off the top of my head that did fit the mold. It is probably 75-80 percent of Superbowl champions that do. So history says you gotta have that guy, or you gotta have everything else and catch lightning in a bottle with a journeyman type.

Don't forget Unitas, Manning, and Manning. Not to mention Joey T. Where would you put those? (So far you've considered all our QBs to be journeymen.)

Various notes:

On RG3: everybody was always commenting that he just couldn't learn how to slide.

It looks like we've been putting more focus on intelligence in our QBs. Alex Smith entered college with ~12 APs and graduated in 2 years, Heineke takes serious math classes, Fitzmagic went to Harvard.

Heineke kept on hitting his receivers in the hands. On the first miss Sims stopped on the route. I'm hoping we get a left tackle to protect our QB investment(s). And I think if it was a less important game Heineke wouldn't have risked getting injured on his run, as I have to think he is smarter than that. With Fitzmagic in, Heineke has more chance to bulk up which should help in terms of injury.

I'm not sure why people think he has to "bulk up". I think he's bigger than Russell Wilson & Drew Brees, and probably around the same size as Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray...

He's fine, just appears to be prone to injury. Another 10-15 pounds won't mitigate that.

More muscle strength helps reduce some injury risk, especially around joints. It won't make a massive difference, but if he were to strengthen his shoulder and knee musculature in particular it would help him. As long as he doesn't reduce his arm strength/speed (by bulking slower muscle fibres). It's not a matter of bulking up, per se, it's about the right type of targeted training to improve the strength of the respective muscle types you want to improve. be very surprised if the S&F coach isn't helping him already, given his injury history.

I'm not saying to give up on looking for a franchise QB because having one makes a huge difference. What I'm saying is worrying about chasing a QB at the expense of everything else. The key is to have a legit pro QB for every season no matter how you get him. This year WFT has a legit pro QB, they didn't last year.

100 percent agree with this take. Maybe misunderstood before? I am much happier about our quarterback room now than i was last year at this time. I also was not in favor of selling or trading the farm for Watson. I would prefer to get our guy in the draft no doubt.

You might want to give him a call then, because Heinicke himself said he was going to live in the weight room this offseason and he wanted to put on some weight to help avoid injury.

I doubt he weighs more than RW, he's built rock solid

He knows himself that he's injury prone. I wouldn't expect him to say anything else.

Thing is, he's been prone to injury since he entered the NFL. I think he's been injured in literally every NFL game he's played. If he thought there was something he could do to mitigate that risk - to preserve his NFL career, you would think he would have tried that 4-5 years ago.

Anyway, it's a fun story...I can't wait to see the bulked up TH.
