Please, please start Rusty Hilger next year. It's obvious from his performance against Indianapolis that he has all the attributes of a top quarterback without experience. The only way he can get that is to play. I would rather watch him make mistakes in games, knowing he will get better, than watch a formerly great but, let's face it, old Jim Plunkett struggle, or a supposed veteran Marc Wilson make bonehead mistakes.
So, hire Plunkett as the quarterback coach, dump Wilson and play Hilger. Let's just call 1987 a rebuilding year and build for the future.
