The Cardinals chose to use an asset to replace Rosen - whereas Purdy is already on the roster, and demonstrated better to this point. This is nowhere near the same situation. It’s not like if Trey Lance or Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t get injured we’d be talking about it - there was a very specific chain of events that led to this discussion, one that Lance really didn’t have any influence on. I'm not saying they're identical situations, but there's enough parallels to that situation to make a comparison. Trey Lance is now 2 years into his rookie contract, and he's thrown a grand total of 102 career passes. And it's not like Trey Lance looked good in the limited opportunities. As a starting QB, he's averaging 55.4% completion percentage, 7.7 YPA, and a TD/INT ratio of 2:3. The fact that we're talking about Brock Purdy being the starting QB over Trey Lance next year is a byproduct of Brock Purdy being effective. This is trying to take previous draft status and trying to use it inflate QB values. Ironically speaking, this is the same spield that Packers' fans heard last year when talking about Jordan Love, only Jordan Love was worth a bag of peanuts.
