It is not like a Quartet could allow a bad Violinist to scratch his way through the Allegro, Meno Mosso e Maoderato, Allegro, Fuga etc... movements only to have him rock the last few bars of the Meno Mosso e Maoderato at the end.
Then again, not every NFL team is the LSO. Some orchestras suck, and have more tolerance for growing pains than others. Kyle Orton still has a job FFS. What's the upside there?
