Sorry Cman, but I disagree and don't follow your reasoning. Petty may have indeed been sacrificed to save Hack last season, but I think it was more of a matter that Hack wasn't going to play regardless, and Petty was more ready to see the field than Hack. I don't know if the organization has really moved on from Petty or if that's just the media's BS. I have seen no statement from Mac, Bowles, Morton or Bates to indicate that is the case. In fact, they've said the opposite that it will be an open competition, and that each of the 3 QBs will get a chance. If Petty gets few snaps in TC, then we'll know that you're right about that point, but I'll be surprised if that's the case. Why would Mac release Petty? That makes zero sense. McCown can't stay healthy and finish a season. Going into a season with just 2 QBs would be insane even if both Hack and Petty were experienced QBs and capable of playing well immediately. It's not a disservice to Petty. Teams don't think in those terms. They think about the team and its future. Their concern isn't about Petty's career, it's about what's best for the team.
