If we look at this year's playoffs, there were 5 young quarterbacks playing. Only one of those QB's made it out of the 1st round and all of them except for Roethlisberger had their share of struggles (I'm not counting Palmer in this category since he only had one pass). Out of those 5, only Leftwich and Roethlisberger started more than 7 games in their rookie season.
With this in mind, it seems to me that rookie or young QB's are more successful in their 2nd year as a starter (especially if they started most of the games in their 1st year). Now I know that Leftwich struggled just as bad as the other QB's not named Roethlisberger but he was coming off of a major injury.
So here's my question: If we drafted a rookie QB, would you be in favor of having him start most or all of the season in his rookie season (even though he'd probably struggle and we'd most likely not make the playoffs) so that he could get the experience and put him in a position to have a breakout season in year 2?
