Re: The Official 2012 Senior Bowl Week Thread

Kirk Cousins convinced me that he's better than I give him credit for, I've followed him his whole career (huge Spartans fan) and one thing I've learned from him is that he's going to give you a chance to compete in every game. He has literally zero upside. He's a game manager, but a better one than Rex Grossman.

I'm surprised that Pauline listed Wilson as a 'Slider' and Cousins as a 'Riser' from the Senior Bowl.
I came away from his article like I watched a different game.

Was the difference between Wilson's and Cousins game wide enought for one to be listed as a 'slider' and one a 'riser'?

Wilson was 4-7 with 1 TD:
His 3 missed passes or as Pauline stated: 'sprayed his passes all over the field' only missed 3 passes

o 1 was a poor decision throwing where he didn't look off the safety and threw late down the seam that got picked

o another was a slant that was a little high but the receiver got his hands on

o he also missed on a corner route, but it looked more like a timing issue then an accuracy issue as he his throw hit the back pylon which is exactly where you want it but it got there before the receiver

o Wilson actually avoided some sacks and used his mobility and poise in the pocket to handle 2 horrible snaps that hit the turf

I saw a completely different performance from Wilson then Pauline.

Sometimes that doesn't mean much.

Let's also remember that these guys only had a week to practice together so sloppy play is expected.
Any chance the team could Trade back for more draft picks, grab one of the QBs and grab the other in the second round? I'd be much happier with them over Grossman and Beck.

Love this idea! I hope you're right! I know you are right about Grossman and Beck!
