It has to be comforting to the players to now know who their starting quarterback is. It gives them a chance to build an on-field and off-field rapport with their signal caller, and finally puts to bed any notion of a 'quarterback controversy'. For now, it's a done deal and the team can head into Week 1 of the season knowing who their guy is.
