As a fan (and presumably McPherson) this is what I’m hearing.
popp: “we know what he can do” paraphrasing.
but don’t play him
popp: " we’ve told his agent if he can find a trade we like, I’ll look at it" -paraphrasing
after Calvillo re-ups
This what i’m thinking:
they are not at all sold that AM is the successor. Anything but, actually.
popp is generally correct or presumed to be as he has always had a HOF QB which makes genius easier.
but I dont see a ringing endorsement here. maybe the assumptions have been off track that AM is the guy
