Letters: Readers weigh the pros and cons of Darnold and Rosen leaving for NFL

Good luck to Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold as they seek to become Sunday heroes. The pseudo-success they've experienced at their respective schools is commendable, but a far cry from achieving real success as NFL quarterbacks. Just ask people like Cade McNown, Brett Hundley, Tommy Maddox, Dennis Dummitt, Gary Beban, Cody Kessler, Matt Barkley, John David Booty, Matt Leinart, even Carson Palmer.

On the other hand, if Rosen can avoid future debilitating trauma and Darnold can learn to better protect the ball, there is hope for their futures, though maybe not in Cleveland.
