Does this actually surprise anyone? Really?
ESPN has a short interview with Paul Chryst today where he state that Tino Sunseri will be the staring QB for the Panthers going into the 2012 season.
We here at the Blather have been trying to get you guys to prepare yourselves for this announcement for sometime. It wasn’t a hard call for Chryst to make.
It makes sense also as much as we may not want it to. Here is a rather telling point and one that some fans just refused to believe:
He clearly was the best this spring that we had. You’re aware of the history but it doesn’t really matter for us.
Then here is this zinger.
“You’re aware of the history but it doesn’t really matter for us. What do you have right now? … He’s got room to grow. If he chooses to grow, and I know it’s easier for us to say last year or two years before that doesn’t matter. It matters in the sense that you should learn from all of it, positive or negative. But it doesn’t matter going forward.
Look, let’s be brutally honest here and stop ************ around. We have no decent QB on the roster but Tino Sunseri and he’s suspect as hell. If anyone harbors any hope for any of the other four QBs, lets add Gonzalez just for more psychic pain, just let go of it now while you still have some sanity left…
Don’t read this on a full stomach.
“Chryst said nobody grabbed the backup quarterback job. As for what he anticipates for Chad Voytik once the four-star prospect arrives this summer, Chryst said, “First he’s got to get here. Then we’ve got to see how he picks up things. I anticipate him getting work. Legitimately getting work and then we’ll see.”
Got that? No – Body – Grabbed – the – Backup – Job. Not third year QB Mark Myers, not Shorty Anderson and not Smoke Gonzales. ”It is a ship of fools we have here on the Southside docks, step right up and see the sideshow”
So what we have left is a longshort miracle that may or may not be happenning in training camp with Chad voytik. But here’s a bit of advice. Don’t back the wrong horse…
“Coming around the clubhouse turn! It’s “Tino Time” with the big lead and… hold on! Here comes the Tennessee stud closing fast!!! It’s a horse race again folks, anything can happen….!”
… in our dreams.
