This is not a good team with Fitz. It's a worse team with Jackson. That's my logic.

Put your best team on the field every week. Don't tank for draft picks. If you want to make the argument that Jackson is BETTER than Fitz, and that's why he should start, then ok. I'll listen to that. Probably won't agree, but it's reasonable.

Saying Jackson should start because 'it can't be any worse' is a non starter for me.
I like it. Accept nothing less than the best, and begin taking steps towards a better team. Quit wasting years of our lives with stopgaps.

And what is "it", exactly - an end result of one, maybe two .500 seasons where the guy doesn't embarrass himself before Jackson proves exactly why he wasn't a starter in the first place. Why not save the aggravation and look for a legitimate longterm solution?
