With the final game of the regular season inching closer, a lot of Buccaneers fans are engaging in an argument over what to do with Kyle Trask.
What to do with Kyle Trask in the final game of the regular season is turning into one of the pressing conversations amongst Buccaneers fans before the fanbase turns its attention to the playoffs.
Tom Brady and the rest of the starters are almost assuredly not going to stay on the field for the whole game, and it does stand to reason that Trask going onto the field rather than Blaine Gabbert would do much more to push the franchise forward.
The Bucs can easily argue that Gabbert absolutely isn’t their future. Is there a chance that Trask fits this bill? Perhaps. The only way to see that is with reps, and this weekend looks like the perfect time to get those reps in.
However, the issue with this is that reps on Sunday will do nothing to actually push the Kyle Trask discourse forward.
If Trask plays and plays well, the team still won’t have enough of a sample size to fully commit to a guy with some red flags in the athletic areas of his game. Even if Trask looks great, the Bucs absolutely have to keep their eyes on the quarterback market this offseason.
If Trask doesn’t play well, how can the Bucs fairly say that is enough time for him to get a chance to prove himself? The ending minutes of a meaningless game against a bad opponent are hardly a fair means to evaluate a player.
Yes, the reps might help when it is all said and done, but does a move like this really move the discourse forward on Kyle Trask when its all said and done? Sadly, the answer to that is no.
