FOR FUCK SAKE:
Colt Mccoy Rushing attempts his last 2 years:
136 for 561
129 for 348
RGIII his last 2 years:
179 for 699 yds
149 for 635 yds
And one of Colts greatest STRENGTHS coming out of college was his accuracy and mobility. So, somehow, somefuckingway, H+H are not interested in RGIII because (a) he ran the ball 20-40 times more a SEASON than a guy they DID draft, or because b) he's MORE accurate than the guy they DID draft or c) because he's actually capable of doing the one thing that the guy they DID draft couldn't, throw the ball deep?
If you want to argue that they wont draft him because they feel they can find "their" guy in a later round or FA or hiding in the CFL, i'll buy that, hook line and sinker. They've got a track record for it.
Saying they wont draft him because he's not "their type of qb" is going to make me go insane.
Again, getting in H+H's heads, think they might, privately, regret taking McCoy? And, either way, they might think, McCoy was a 3rd-round flier pick, not #4 overall. They'd planned on Colt not playing at all year one, while learning an NFL "offense" (archaic as it was).
IMHO, they'd have taken Matt Barkley at 4 in a second. They see him as more "NFL Ready" from the start. Ditto, of course, Luck.
In the end, I suspect it won't matter b/c the Lambs will trade #2 to WSH or Miami, who will take RGIII.
