You dance with the one who brung ya'.
Or some country saying like that.
If he's healthy and just playing poorly, I completely agree. He clearly wasn't healthy after he aggravated his knee on their 2nd scoring drive. You absolutely have to give him the opportunity to see if he can play through, but once you have to tear out half your playbook because it's obvious to everyone (including the defense) that he's not going to be able to complete a pass down the field, I think you have to make the move.
But, whatever, not my team, not my coach, not my QB. And regardless, we agree on the primary point of my response to toddcommish, which is that we never want to see our QB say "I can't go, put him in."
