Like a deer in headlights is what I saw out of Pat White. It took that final game to convince me the Pat White expirement should be officially shut down. I think it's obvious Pat White will never be an elite QB in the NFL, and he's nowhere near a Ronnie Brown when running the wildcat. Not to mention he has a small frame, which may explain why he runs around like a deer in headlights.
I understand Pat White was brought in here to help run the wildcat and give it more of a throwing threat. I don't beleive he was brought in here to be a true #2 QB, rather to be utilized as an option type QB.
In yesterday's game, the coaching staff made the mistake of treating Pat White as a true #2 QB, but at the same time they had no choice. They knew that if they put in Thigpen right away, they could no longer go back to Pat White at QB, per NFL rules. Clearly it was a disaster waiting to happen. Did the coaching staff believe we could run the wildcat for the whole second half?
You could clearly see we had no momentum whatsoever with Pat White at QB. We now know Pat White will never be a true #2 QB and he is nothing special in the wildcat. If anything he is a downgrade to Ronnie Brown in the wildcat because White looks scared when he throws the ball. I hope the coaching staff realize it was a mistake, call him a bust and move on. The Pat White experiment is over.
