I was really pleased with how we responded to a game like Monday night's. It was as good a fourth preseason game as I've been around.
The other issue is, his ankle's swelling up.
I believe we are a better football team, certainly better than we have shown.
He's an up-and-coming guy, and if there is a surprise in our draft class, it is Dan, ... The game isn't too fast for him, and we're not writing him off as the backup right now.
We know who is out there as far as available quarterbacks, but in reality, no one would be more prepared or capable as a No. 2 at this point than Dan. He got more snaps in the preseason than any of our quarterbacks and continues to get better.
