Colin Cowherd is in favor of playing rookie quarterbacks. On today's edition of The Herd, Cowherd agreed with Bruce Arians, saying that Tua Tagovailoa should play immediately. In a recent interview, Arians said that "you don't learn anything holding a clipboard." While Census workers might disagree, Cowherd agrees with Arians that you need to throw rookies out there and see if they've got it.
Cowherd lays out a very good case for letting rookies like Tua play immediately. Better coaches, more college football-based schemes, and taking advantage of that rookie salary for as long as you can are just three of the reasons Cowherd favors letting a rookie play.
