The person who started in GB was not the guy GB drafted. 49ers were a complete mess and would of thrown him out in day 1 and he would of gotten killed. Still amazes me Alex Smith made it through what he did and ended up with a pretty good career.
You do not know that. Maybe he does become a journeyman had he went to the 49ers or maybe he still become a legendary HOF QB.
Again, I am not saying hand Fields the job, I'm saying if he proves to be the best QB on the team he needs to play, period.
All you can go off of is the facts. Mike McCarthy didn't think he was worth the #1 pick when he was the OC for SF. Then when he was in GB he completely rebuilt Rodgers without having to worry about him playing before his was ready. He like Alex Smith would of started from day one in SF. No QB school in SF. Just a situation were he is playing behind a bad OL with no good skill players and a bad head coach with a revolving door at the OC position. This really has nothing to do with Fields, who should start from day 1, more just an observation since people seem to think Rodgers would of been great from the start because most don't remember the circumstances to start his career.
