Did you watch the game last week? That argument holds as much water now as saying JG is an All-American. Shrout played as well or better last week than any quarterback we have had start in three years now.
We didn't play well, but we got the win and most importantly, no one got hurt. On top of that Maurer got another week of rest and healing. About the best outcome we could have hoped for with back to back road games looming.
