Unless cha was talking about benching him at the beginning of last season (which I'm sure he wasn't) which I thought at the time and still think was a ridiculous and terrible decision, I don't know how Childress could have handled TJ differently?
He was an ok draft pick, it was fine to start him at the end of his rookie season when we sucked, it was fine to start him his 2nd season given the other options and it was certainly fine to start him over Frerotte last season.
Did you know that TJ's career (regular season) adjusted net yards per attempt was about the same as Eli Manning's before this season started? That by ANY/A, his 7 games or whatever last season were better on average then any season Eli has had? He has also only played in 28 games, less then two full seasons, including all the partial games he's gotten into. And Eli had Burress + a better OL.
That is an above average 64th overall pick.
