Baby Hawk is about to get thrown into that category too as I think he would be better suited for the occasional reverse then back to the sidelines. Sanu in the slot and Jones opposite AJ.....that is the future and the future needs to start quick. Andy Dalton has had success at the QB position. He has proven himself in the past as far as what he is capable of when players around him do not fail him.
...and that had absolutely nothing to do with 1). Chad getting older, or 2). Him turning into a giant diva that cared more about his fame than football?
Fitzgerald, for example, has had one QB that was actually worth a crap his entire career, yet he's still averaging over 1000 yards per season despite being targeted less than when Warner was there. In fact, last season he managed to post his 2nd highest yardage total(1411) while catching less passes, 16 less to be exact.
Chad on the other hand totally failed with the Pats, and he had one of the best QBs in NFL history throwing to him, along with a HOF HC and offensive genius. Ocho made himself bad when he stopped caring so much about the game.
