    One of the many reasons why Tua will sit, learn, strengthen and watch.

    SO Cal
    He pretty much knew he wasn't the "Franchise" guy coming into this. He's a good guy for him to be sitting behind and learning from. Although he's not the "franchise" he is a really good QB with a lot of toughness that gives us a chance to win.

    I had mentioned recently that "mentoring" NFL QBs is not so much on the the mentor as the mentee. The mentor primarily teaches by example and it's on the mentee to be proactive in terms of asking questions and observing/absorbing. The mentor just has to be open and available to answer questions. The statement by Fitz is all that you want from your vet QB. He has to be professional and continue to prepare as the starter and he has to be willing to share his knowledge and experience when asked. I'd seen a few posts questioning Fitz as a mentor b/c Rosen hadn't seemed to develop much. IMO that's a misunderstanding of the process. If Rosen didn't progress then it's on him. He either didn't ask enough questions or if he did he didn't absorb the information.

    In all honesty I don't think Rosen had another opportunity toward the last half of the season so if he did learn anything from it there was no chance to show or practice it. It would be nice to see him have a fair chance with a better surrounding line and team.
