"I don't think we can emphasize it enough that we're going to build a football team," Pettine said Saturday, per The Plain Dealer. "We're not going to over-prioritize the quarterback position."
"We go 11 against 11, we're not just trotting quarterbacks out on the 50-yard line and thumb wrestling," quipped the coach. "To me there are a lot of different ways to win football games. You just don't force the situation. If we perceive our quarterback group is not the best in the division, what does that mean? Do we call the league and cancel games? You still gotta play."
