Re: 2011 NFL Draft

FINALLY! Someone took the time to make a video of Dalton that isn't shot by a student in the endzone.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

definately not a highlight film! Just a full game but it shows his fight, and he has a quick release. He is my hope that the Redskins target in the second round.

Your right in that the overwhelming majority of second round QB's amount to nothing in this league. However to say that there is a 0% chance that any of them will become a franchise QB is a little far fetched (I know a mathmatician that would go crazy at the mention of 0%).

I personally don't usually like second round QB's, however with the exception of Beck and Kolb most of those QB's had average or terrible intangibles. The Daltons, Ponders, and Kaepernicks all have through the roof work ethics and leadership qualities. Dalton and Ponder are both accurate QB's with mobility. All they need is the right coach and Shanahan is a great fit.

In fact in the past thats why QB's have dropped to the second round as the concerns about their intangibles have overridden their physical skill set and production. Brian Brohm is probably the best example of this and Mallet looks like he's having similar problems. We also saw Clausen drop to the second round last year due to concerns about his leadershiip.
I didn't say there was a zero percent chance that a 2nd rounder will pan out. I said theres a zero percent chance that multiple 2nd round picks in this years draft are franchise qbs. Your right that I shouldn't say zero, but realistically the odds are close enough so that we shouldn't consider it a possibility.

A franchise qb is SO valuable, that if you truly believe your guy is the guy that will get it done, you use a first rounder on him. There is a reason why nobody thinks these guys will go in the first, its because nobody believes they are the guy.

If it were really as easy as you are saying to find a franchise qb, that all a guy with average skills and a good work ethic/leadership needs is a good coach, then there would be alot more franchise qbs in the league found in later rounds.

Good coaching does not make or break any qb. If that were true then qb's that failed with the teams that drafted them should improve when they move teams or get new coaches. Every failed qb ever has found a new coach eventually, but I can't think of a single qb that ever turned into a franchise qb after a coaching change.

I didn't expect him to have that much zip on his throws. Personally I loved how accurate we was on those quick outs and comebacks. That fade pass on the TD was great as well. If anything I'd say he's a poor mans Sam Bradford. Finally though I have a better understanding as to why he's created so many man crushes. Andy Dalton is worthy of being this teams QB.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

I'm not sure I ever exactly said comfortable with Beck. But I think he's in the mix. As of today, if a CBA ever comes around or if there's enough time between legal battles to move on free agency, I see a QB competition this summer starring John Beck, Vince Young, a draft pick (they seem to like Dalton, but 10 is too high and will he be there at 41?), and maybe Rex Grossman (or perhaps another veteran).

Been asking several different people associated with the NFL and/or the Redskins in different ways...and this Vince Young interest is legit. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one. But at least this year I'll feel prepared if it happens, unlike last year when the McNabb totally blindsided me.

There is a difference between "this can be our guy" and "this will be our guy." I'm not saying that we should not draft a qb, I'm just saying that we better damn well be sure it WILL be our guy.
There is a zero percent chance more than one of the guys you just mentioned would make it as our franchise qb. Every year people make the same statements you are making about potential, and every year they are wrong. Look to the past to predict the future. You can rationalize your opinions as much as you want, but it is a fact that your opinions on this subject are wrong as been proven by history (you see what I did there ).
You are right about most second rounders...except for folks like Drew Brees. There are exceptions to your logic.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Well I mean who knows. Maybe not. But what seemed totally unlikely just a month ago appears to be pretty serious right now. Things can change though. They always do

I was well aware of Drew Brees when I said that (I said drafted in the last 10 years to avoid this conversation). I never said second rounders are impossible to hit on, I was trying to convey to Dirtbag that a qb is not something that can be easily picked up or developed. I was trying to say that a 2nd round qb is not something to be counted on as the future.
But as a side note, there are currently more qb's drafted in the 6th round that have made a pro bowl than in the 2nd (Drew Brees is the only one).

Well I thought it was a weird pairing but I guess his athleticism attracts them plus the fact that he's been a winner in this league helps also.

I know Kyle left Texas just as VY was arriving, but maybe there's some connection there too?

But I guess at the end of the day, if the Titans release him as expected then why not give it a shot?

I am all for it personally, anytime he has the ball opposing defenses have to be worried, and he doesn't throw many Ints so thats also a plus. Like I said before, he has to be better than Rex
