    Protect him? Don't play him at QB. Don't let him run. Don't play him at all. Otherwise, he's gonna get hit and hurt.

    I don't understand why a QB wouldn't be fair game in any juncture of his game. Yeah these guys are paid a lot and mean a lot to their respective teams, but I don't know why the NFL has to bear the responsibility of this. A lot of premier pass rushers get paid a lot too, there's no roughing calls for them

    Because the owners run the NFL and they want to protect their investment.

    So if the QB does not have the ball he should still be fair game?...Or did I misunderstand you?

    I just mean a QB should be as "fair game" as a receiver or a running back, at the end of the day they're all football players and none should get any special treatment.

    Maybe he got injured because he runs the ball too much, I guess we'll see he long he holds up this year.

    To date, he has gotten injured by taking unnecessary hits that could have been easily avoided by stepping out of bounds, sliding before the defensive player is committed to a hit or throwing the ball away. He's a smart kid and I think he will get it figured out. (Fingers crossed)
