Phil, I think you missed what I said earlier:
Although I would have been tempted to insert Mullens in the 4th quarter, I am hopeful they can work around Kirk's weaknesses, like they attempt to work around the weakness at center.
I am excited and hopeful they work around Kirk's weaknesses. You could see a few things in the Vikings very last drive, having a place where Kirk could dump off short, have more screens ready (hopefully he goes to the right side, not someone that is well covered), and Kirk even ran on one play.
I think it's fine to keep going with Kirk, it helps in the evaluation to decide if they can work around his weaknesses, and use his strengths. Mullens starting would be better as a possible late season move, or a Kirk injury.
I admit to impulsively wanting to see Mullen's play against his former team in the 4th quarter, after seeing Kirk getting progressively bad. We have probably seen bad Kirk more than KOC has.
SKOL to the BOWL !!!
