How does this work? With an ALL-WORLD Receiver Kolb's only stat which was BETTER than McCoy [significantly] was his yards per attempt.
Why pay the money for someone who isn't astronomically better?
If we go get RGIII we can have a competition between Colt and him.
Flynn will be overpaid, and I rather it not be by Cleveland.
Let other teams pick up those guys. There is one LOCK in this draft at QB and that is Luck, and the Colts have become [again] ridiculously lucky (pun intendend?) to have the opportunity to pick up a sure thing at the top of the draft.
(RGIII has an huge ceiling, tons of potential, and will LIKELY succeed. But not a LOCK in the way Luck is)
I think Kolb would come cheap, and I think he has more potential to be good than Colt. Stronger arm. More experience in the West Coast (a system in which he DID have some good games).
I didn't say he'd be astronomically better, but if he's any better than Colt and can be had at a reasonable price, you make that move. Just like with any position on the team, if you can upgrade - even if just a little - you do that.
I don't think that stops you from going for RG3. But if you just fall back on the RG3 plan and you don't get him, then there isn't much left out there in FA and you might be stuck with another year of Colt. Which I know I personally could do without.
EDIT - If the Browns draft RG3, he's the starter Day 1. There is no competition at that point.
