Perhaps we should simmer down the Foles talk. 5.14 isn't gonna cut it as a Shanny QB.

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

Every year I watch the QBs throw and every year I hate the way they cover it.

You don't get to see every QB make every throw.
I mean how hard can it be? They only make about 20 somthingish throws each.
Then when the finally post the video capsule of each prospect they still don't show all the throws.

steps off soapbox....

Anybody want to talk the QBs?

I expected Foles to wow with arm strength from the 1st group but he was only okay.
He didn't separate himself like I thought he would and his footwork was predictably sloppy.

Jordan Jefferson really surprised with impressive velocity.
Cousins threw the ball well and showed nice rhythm with his footwork.

From the second group I was impressed with Weeden's velocity, if there was 1 guy that embraced the 'grip and rip it' mantra it was Weeden, even though he was off target on a couple of throws.
Wilson was on the money with almost every throw I saw and threw the ball with a nice rhythm to his footwork and good velocity.
Moore even despite his noticeable lack of armstrength is usually on time with his throws.

Darron Thomas was turrible

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

also did anyone notice that Tannehill?
NFL Videos: Catching up with Cousins

don't pay any attention to the interview with Cousins; pay attention to the footage of the WRs running the Gauntlet

Tannehill was the first QB throwing in the WR Gauntlet and guess who was standing right behind him watching him make every throw?
Our very own QB coach Matt LaFleur

Yeah pretty easy to see him as the face of a franchise, just hope it's here.

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

I really like RGIII, but I would love Luck instead and so do 62% of people on NFL.com:

Should the Colts consider taking RGIII with the No. 1 pick?

62%
No, Andrew Luck has it locked

13%
Yes, combine changed my mind

18%
Yes, I've always liked RGIII

7%
No, they should pick a non-QB

Scares me too. If I were his QB coach, I wouldn't let him take the field until he mastered the art of sliding. I'd give him the Willy Mays Hayes treatment and make him do 20 push ups on the field every time he took an unnecessary hit.

Speed kills. See Michael Vick and the number of games he misses each year.

RG3 has a lot of a bigger built body than Vick does. I am not suggesting that he purposefully takes vicious hits like Vick takes, but I think RG3 can take them better because he is bigger.

True dat. Plus he has a different playing style than Vick. RGIII is less of a run-first QB.

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

CB Janoris Jenkins' family drama more troublesome to his draft status than drug arrests, bar fight - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

Wow. Four different kids by 3 different women...lol


Quote:
But what appears to be a chaotic personal life, where an NFL hopeful is the father of four children by three different women, might be the issue that makes teams take a player off the draft board altogether.

Would not touch this guy with a 1,000 ft. pole.


Guess he's trying to beat Cromartie's record of 9 kids...lol


Quote:
As for the children and the women, the life of Cromartie is instructive. Cromartie is an incredibly gifted player who has been dogged for years by the drama in his life from of having nine children by eight women in six states. Cromartie’s troubles were so daunting that his original team, the San Diego Chargers, traded him in part because they felt he was too distracted and under too much pressure to do his job.


Quote:
“I know we haven’t decided what to do with him,” an AFC executive said. “We might take him off our board. I know there will be three or four teams that will take him off right away, at least for the first round.”

Said an NFC team executive: “You want to hear if he has a plan to deal with it. He might convince you that he has it under control.”

What’s the likelihood of that?

“I wouldn’t expect it to be real high,” he said. “Most of these guys don’t know what to do with the first dollar they make. If this kid could follow a plan, he wouldn’t be in this situation in the first place. … I know this movie. It usually doesn’t end well.”
