Brian Hoyer declared last week that he is 100% healed from his ACL surgery that took place last fall. I find this really hard to believe. The whole of the orthopedists community believe that it takes anywhere from 12-18 months to truly recover from an ACL reconstructive surgery....unless your name is Adrian Peterson or you are considered superhuman. We know that Brian is a hard worker and wants to be that starter come opening day in Pittsburgh but it may back fire on him. Before his "100%" declaration an errant pass or a weak one in training camp could have been chalked up to his still recovering knee. Now: if the coaches believe that he in fact 100%, they may view those passes as just lousy ones. In my opinion: Hoyer did not need to make that declaration three weeks before training camp even starts. He obviously thinks that his convalescence from his surgery may be the opening that some of the coaches and perhaps the owner see to start Manzeil sooner rather than later. I believe that Brian Hoyer is not only the more experienced QB but the better overall QB; AS OF NOW. Hoyer did not need to declare he was 100% healthy to win and retain the starting QB job. He is good enough and experienced enough to do it it at 85%.
