    The NFL is a different game. But if we were judging only by this season, Rosen has looked better than Darnold. Both these guys should declare for the NFL after this season, Rosen doesn’t fit Chip Kelly’s scheme and Darnold’s stock may continue to fall if he stays (Barkley comes to mind). I can see Rosen being like a Goff in the NFL, which coach he plays for is going to be important.

    I know I picked Stanford and got it handed to me earlier but I am still not impressed by USC’s defense and Darnold. It is hard to beat a good team twice in the same season. I am taking Stanford in a revenge game for the PAC 12 championship.

    I do not get announcers constantly hyping Rosen. It must be for every “he will be a hall of fame NFL quarterback” statement they get a few bucks.

    Chip may not “have any use” for a non-running Rosen, but I assure you, the NFL does. Keep firmly in mind that the NFL also has no use for Kelly anymore, so things do balance out.

    Rosen better go play in Poland or Sicily. No way Kelley has any use for a geek that can’t run.
