"Whoever has a better grasp of this offense is going to be the starter. So, call it insanity, but I'm again going with the QB who has the head-start: Ferguson. Could Hackenberg start? Absolutely. But Ferguson is my best guess right now. It's his job to lose.
Both quarterbacks are mobile, both have great arms. But the one thing I kept hearing about Hackenberg is that he needs to improve upon reading defenses. He has everything else. He was confused by disguised coverages, but that's something that's teachable, and that'll come in time. Ferguson needs to add a little bulk, but teammates have said he has a strong presence in the huddle. Neither QB had a great offensive line last season, and both have high ceilings. Hackenberg is the future, but I think Ferguson is the short-term answer."
