Just say no to statue gingers. We need a 21st century offense QB.

Not an SEC 1 year wonder courtesy Cam Cameron.

Not Eric Zeier. Not Jay Barker, Jesse Palmer, Greg McElroy.

There have been 19 QBs selected in the Top 5 picks since RETURN OF BORWNS:

Couch
McNabb
Akili Smith
Vick
Carr
Harrington
Palmer
Eli Manning
Rivers
Alex Smith
Young
Russell
Ryan
Stafford
Sanchez
Bradford
Newton
Luck
Griffin

Eli's the only one to win a Super Bowl. McNabb's the only other QB on that list who advanced far enough to play in the game. And if I'm remembering right, Mark Sanchez(!), Alex Smith(!), Philip Rivers, and Matt Ryan are the only others who've gotten as far as a conference championship game.

Of the 14 Super Bowls played since RETURN OF BORWNS, only 3 of them have been won by teams with QBs selected in the Top 5 picks, all with the last name Manning. Only 2 others made it to the game with the team that drafted them--both Irishmen, coincidentally (McNair & McNabb). (+Peyton's return appearance)

^Not reasons to wait until the 3rd round, but reasons to not sell the farm to move up into the Top 5 for a QB. Especially when you're giving your Top 5 QB the disadvantage of depleted resources for a supporting cast.

Who said anything about top 5 picks? jfilings post was about QBs selected to be franchise QBs, and how apparently most of the QB's that win the Super Bowl aren't selected to be franchise QB's (or something), as if most teams just fall ass backwards into a Super Bowl QB without trying. And that's just flat wrong.

Every QB selected in the first round is selected with the team intending to make them the franchise QB. It's not like Green Bay selected Rodgers to be their long term back up, what, because they didn't have any other holes so why not get a kid to back up Brett forever? You don't use 1sts (or 2nds) for backups, even if they aren't top 5. That doesn't mean it always works out, as your list clearly demonstrates.

But the overwhelming majority of dudes who get there and win that big wheel of cheese are selected becusue their team thought they would be the guy. Manning, Manning, Rodgers, POS, Flacco, Brees...these guys were selected to be THE GUY.

Brady is the lone exception.

If you are looking at QB's who can win it all and have won it all and come away with the conclusion that your are just as likely to luck into one as opposed to making a clear and definite selection of one with a top draft pick I don't think you are looking at the right lists. Because that's a shitty strategy.

I'm not saying they have to give up the farm to move into the top 2 to get Teddy. I don't think that's going to end up being an option anymore after the last 8 days. But you can't just sit back and select Colt Part Deux in the 3rd and settle in for the Noodle Arm vs Hoyer spring training showdown to take you to the promised land. Becasue that ain't happenin' bub.

Vick played in The Game.

But that's not why I called.

This is a significant post and don't let people shit on it DooDoo.

But I don't conclude the takeaway is highly drafted QBs bust or don't draft them that high.

Instead I conclude that the standard of QB success being a SB is both artificial and antedelluvian thinking. Lets face it, it takes a lot of just plain luck to win a SB or even get there. It's flukey. And for a lot of the guys you mentioned the future has yet to be written.

This is also the ultimate team sports. If Atlantas D decides to stop shitting the bed at the first sight of post season does that validate Matty Ice suddenly? Is that remotely logical?

But a huge factor is the obvious one and that these guys go to truly awful teams. The expectation is that these QBs are supposed to be Achilles in cleats from snap one and that's just not reality. The guys going mid round 1 are almost as talented and planted in far better situations. It matters.

Yep, and really what I'm getting at most is that my position on drafting 1st round QBs is exactly the same as it is on drafting any other position I'd be willing to spend a 1st round pick on. Maximize opportunities, and patience, patience, patience. If you can move up for someone you love at a low cost, fine. Otherwise, take what the draft's giving you. If a quality QB prospect doesn't fall to us in 2014, there's always 2015...or 2016, etc. When you're in position for the right guy, the risk is fine, but compounding the risk by using 2-3 1st round picks+ is always going to be unacceptable, IMO.

If our fat ass team gets Hoyer-lifted to 7-9 and stupid Indy keeps winning to put those picks in the middle & end of round 1, as far as I'm concerned, awesome. In New Regime Year 1, that's legit culture change. And I'm perfectly content to Fitzpatrick our way through a couple seasons with Hoyer while building up the rest of the team until we're in position for the right QB prospect.

And who knows, maybe this is the draft that there's an attractive mid-1st QB prospect out there for us.

ETA: and I missed Vick's NFC Championship appearance, but he never played in THE Game.

EATA: Seattle & Denver had better keep it going for 1 & 3 more weeks, respectively. If Indy catches both of after they've exhausted their early season hot streaks, after catching SF without Vernon Davis, that's some BS.

My bad you right - thought Vick got there with ATL & Dan Reeves.

I think it imperative to get a 1 round QB this off season. Not content to Fitzpatrick waiting to draft him. but I am for part of a season until he's ready.

Now whether we need to trade 'em all for 1 or 2 guys rather than let the draft come to us? Think I'm on fence but I groc you.

Fear is a torn ACL and MCL for Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton tonight. Curious to see if he enters the draft and if anybody takes a chance late.

Just throwing it out there for opinions: after the big 4 thoughts on Keith Price of You Dub.

I thought his arm was live and he's mobile.

IDK if anyone know this butt his RBs grandfather was blind and had surgery to give him sight.

In the spirit of our 3-2ness and Pittsburgh's 0-4ness, I've allowed myself to become tickled by the idea of us drafting Tommy Pickles lookalike Johnny Manziel.

Just think, if we could continue to be good, and they could continue to be bad, and we were good while being led by a player who was hatable on the same level of a Joey Porter, Hines Ward, or James Harrison?

Oooh, that would be fun.

6'4", 211lbs.

Arm is strong. This wasn't most impressive effort but didn't need to be.

Some back foot throws and a few late over the middle which are annoying, but again, hard to say how good he had to be against Buffs. Some throws are ridiculous in terms of ball placement and fitting some throws in.

Just saw this and figured I'd throw it up here.

No. It's a college QB thread, he's not a sleeper and I got the youtube and decided to throw it up there for conversation.

That was every throw/run from one game.

You have a lot of other pressing issues to attend to that this gets in the way of? ;-) ;) :wink:

The list of pressing duties that stand in the way of busting Peeker's balls in a good natured way is a rather short one.

Pretty sure Weeden could make that near interception on the screen pass. First minute is awful to watch. No pocket patience at all, the second he gets the ball he's looking to scramble out of the pocket. He won't be able to do that in the NFL, so hopefully that would be coachable. Throws into a tight window on the slant, down to near the goal line, nice throw.

His mechanics are awful. I don't know if I saw him throw with the same base twice. A mess. This is actually the first time I've seen Mariota, but I don't think I'd like the pick if the Browns made it, just my opinion.

Lookin' forward to seeing Hundley take on Stanford this weekend.

Stanford D, coming off a loss, and being disrespected by being dropped all the way to 13, even though there's only a half dozen teams favored over them on a neutral....

Gonna be an excellent test.

Agreed. Excited to see Tajh Boyd take on a real defense as well. Total look-ahead spot for Clemson last week, so we'll see what Boyd comes up with this week.

Teddy Bridgewater will face his best defense of the season tomorrow night when UCF comes to town. A UCF team that hung with South Carolina and even shut them out in the first half before Spurrier switched to a power run game and they ran it down UCF's throat.

6'4", 211lbs.

Arm is strong. This wasn't most impressive effort but didn't need to be.

Some back foot throws and a few late over the middle which are annoying, but again, hard to say how good he had to be against Buffs. Some throws are ridiculous in terms of ball placement and fitting some throws in.

Just saw this and figured I'd throw it up here.


Pretty sure Weeden could make that near interception on the screen pass. First minute is awful to watch. No pocket patience at all, the second he gets the ball he's looking to scramble out of the pocket. He won't be able to do that in the NFL, so hopefully that would be coachable. Throws into a tight window on the slant, down to near the goal line, nice throw.

His mechanics are awful. I don't know if I saw him throw with the same base twice. A mess. This is actually the first time I've seen Mariota, but I don't think I'd like the pick if the Browns made it, just my opinion.


Yep. One game though. Like I said, wouldn't base a choice on it, but there were some scary traits and characteristics on some throws, I agree.

Tajh Boyd- 6'1" 225lbs

Hmmm... 6'1", huh?

I think I like Sammy Watkins as much or more ;-) ;) :wink:

Brett Hundley- 6'3", 225lbs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryWof4CO ... Le2-aEvOWA

I mean, all three of these clips (Mariota, Boyd and Hundley) were against shitty opponents, so there's that.

But Hundley is most impressive to me on the given video. The 330-430 mark on this video and look how he reads over the whole field and makes the right throws and decisions there. Escapability, gonna have to make quicker decisions in NFL, big arm and stands in under pressure.

A lot to like.

Here's my plan for the next draft: All defense. (I'm serious, btw.)

This could possibly make the D resemble an NFL-caliber unit and collaterally improve the special teams. Bring Hoyer and Ginger back and hope for the best on offense.
Bottom 4th: Cleveland
- J. Kipnis grounded out to shortstop
- A. Cabrera doubled to deep left
- N. Swisher doubled to center, A. Cabrera scored
- J. Giambi doubled to deep right center, N. Swisher to third, N. Swisher out at home
- J. Giambi caught stealing, catcher to third

1 run, 3 hits, 0 errors

Have you watched the last couple years of playoffs?

SF, Seattle.....pick a defense. Still needed to hang damn near 40 (and sometimes more) to advance.

Whole game runs thru one guy. Without him all the rest is wasting time.

With a zillion picks and cap space, ANYONE in the league that doesn't go QB is about bat-shit crazy.

Sadly, Erie, yes....I liked their whole draft (Not anymore...clearly)

I also thought BETA was better the VHS back in the day....so there is THAT.

If we want Hundley, I'm starting to think we will have to trade up to get him.

Teddy B was aight. He keeps getting national hand jobs about his football IQ, but he was throwing mostly to open guys last night.

He's not Andrew Luck.

Predictions:

-Teddy goes #1 as expected

-At least one of the R-sophs returns to school

-Boyd & Tommy Pickles end up with 2nd round grades

-Borwns fans spend 5+ months arguing over whether we should blow our load to move up for the R-soph who declared or reach on Boyd or T-Picks with one of our picks in the 1st.

You're waiting to look like Bad Grandpa before advocating actually addressing the position?

I think I picked the wrong weekend to finally watch Boyd and Hundley. They both looked like diseased intestines Saturday.

Yep.

Especially disappointed by Hundley. Every time the ball left his hand it looked like a blind cow was shooting a crossbow at a gnat. I can see that he is physically talented, but so have thousands of other college QB's that couldn't run an NFL offense any better than Spurgeon Wynn.

I'm sure he has looked MUCH better, there wouldn't be so much hype otherwise. So I'll watch a few more of his games before I formulate any lasting opinion.

Not good. If a guy wets the bed against a quality college defense, well, that's a red flag. Not a deal breaker by any means, but not a good sign.

I can only speak for Boyd as I was a Buckeye honk, but, uh, yeah.

I'd still draft either # 1 but no pressure to bundle picks and the sit behind Hoyer development plan would be my option 1.

Yeah, with that #6 pick, you can wait for one of those guys to fall to you. No need to trade up unless the price isn't too bad.

I know he didn't have an especially impressive showing on Saturday night either, but my favorite non-QB prospect to date has been Sammy Watkins. And if, as I expect, we'll be out of range for the top QB prospects in the draft thanks to our Hoyer Lift, I'd be cool with:

1A: Watkins
1B: OL/DB
2: RB
3A: OL/DB
3B: OL/DB

...and run with Hoyer + Late round scratch off QB + FA Anyone in 2014.

Better than forcing it with Boyd or Pickles.

Agree with all that. Except maybe the RB in the 2nd thing, I don't think there's a need to take one before the 3rd unless some special talent just drops to the 2nd for no reason (haven't done my RB homework yet).

You get a 21st century space back.

The good ones come round 2. Seastrunk comes to mind.

But to the overall point?

Hmmmmmm.......

IDK. I think you draft a QB but you change expectations. You now treat your QB like all other 21 positions. Hoyer can let us do that.

The cap rookie change can permit that.

But I don't get in a feed frenzy. I draft like Ozzie.

WWOD?

Yep.

Just take a look at the bottom of the NFL standings:

JAX 0-7
TB 0-6
NYG 0-6
MIN 1-4
HOU 2-5
OAK 2-4

You have to figure chances are really good that at least one of Hundley or Mariota returns to school. How are we going to leapfrog JAX or TB? And unless Freeman blows up in MIN, that's another team that's almost certain to pick a QB ahead of us. Do either of Houston or Oakland pass on Hundley or Mariota?

It was a fun stretch with Hoyer, but it almost certainly cost us a tippy top QB prospect this year.
