    No.

    We're developing a QB for the next decade, and it's better for him to learn to be an NFL QB now rather than later.

    You can keep moving things up as he progresses. Forcing him into bad situations doesn't help anyone. I agree with Brian, if they aren't already doing that.

    NO! don't force progression on him, I agree with Brian, at the moment, simplyifying things is much better, he needs to do more of what he did in Texas, run and make plays...

    OK, so I have been out-voted 3 to 1. I still think he's got to learn to make all of his reads at some point. And there's no time like the present. How many two-read QBs have been successful in the NFL? He's been fine doing this up until Sunday, when he was forced to throw every play. We all knew if it all fell on his shoulders he would make some mistakes. He's a rookie. And I ,for one, am not worried about his confidence. I think he overcomes this game and I think he'll play better this Sunday. I think the way Chow and Fisher have brought him along is fine. The only thing I'd complain about is his lack of tucking and running. He's gotta remember it's ok to make plays with his legs.

    i think people are overreacting to his bad performance a little. i mean, i know no one wants a qb to throw three INTs in one game, but he is a rookie and we knew he would have games like this, most do.

    I read, not too long ago, where someone said how Vince will do fine when this (NFL) game slows down for him. Well that really made me think. Every rookie says something about how fast the game is and I figure that statement made sense. No need at this point to rush the guy. Just let him melt into the game. It will be a fun thing to watch happen.

    look at Alex Smith last yr to this yr.................VY likely will be alot better in Dec than he is now................and I fully expect 5 more losses in the next 5 weeks...............but what I am looking for is to see how VY responds when he is totally overmatched................against the Jags he kept on going and learning..................to me 06 was over with the Collins and Volek thing..................I say chalk up 06 get the youngsters advanced on the learning curve for 07........................

    I am perfectly fine with him developing his pocket skills. However, he should tuck and run for the sideline to get some yards in 2nd and 10 situations that he checks down on. It will open up things alot for him.

    I'd like to see them roll him out occasionally also to keep defenses honest.
