In Defense of Mitch: "The main takeaway here is that a young quarterback's progression is not linear. You have to expect ups and downs along the way. Fans who don't take a more measured, and patient approach are setting themselves up for failure. After his first two seasons, there wasn't a single expert who didn't think Robert Griffin, III was a franchise quarterback. The same could have been said after Dak Prescott's rookie year" (Sheldon, 9/21, DaWindyCity.com)
