Re: Jason Campbell

I don't doubt this guy is a great QB - didn't he just lead Auburn undefeated, plus they had a very good running game (so similarilites there), HOWEVER coming into this draft our offence needed a shot in the arm.

Adding a QB that will sit on the bench (providing Gibbs is true to his word that this is Ramseys team this year) doesn't seem like an idea to add points on the board!!!
Are we gonna carry 4 QBs ? ...
Ramsey - given the job by Gibbs
Campbell - just drafted
Brunell - can't afford to get rid of him
Hasselbeck - 'cus of his wife!

Maybe it will all work out and we'll win 12 next year, but passing on Mike Williams to me was a HUGE mistake and taking a QB in round 1 when we have other bigger needs is another (not to mention the other mistakes in this offseason). Our FO used to be joked about for being an easy few extra mill on a contract, now its just a joke.

Without a pick until round 4 (thanks to trading this years 3rd to Denver in the trade to get Campbell) we are gonna struggle to add players to REALLY make waves on our team next season - and with the way things our going I see us drafting Clarett!!!!

With the Moss/Taylor stuff as well as everything else, watching this years offseason for the skins is almost as bad as watching our offence last season!

Re: Jason Campbell

Right, I meant drafted WR. Fair enough. It's just I was hoping for another. Oh, well. YOu don't win without a QB, and if Ramsey either goes down or fails to reach the next level, we are truly screwed. So now we've got QB depth. Hope it works out.

As for the FO--was this worth the picks?

I see them having him carrying the clipboard for at least 2 seasons. Finally the RIGHT way to bring on a QB.

Totally agree flyfischer.......QB wasn't an area of urgent need.......we could have picked a WR or gotten some help on defense............I was thinking about some of the same players that were still available. Not a happy camper.

Agreed 100%. And if Ramsey turns into the QB a lot of us think he could be, then a decision will have to be made on Campbell down the road.

With all due respect, an untested rookie does not add any sort of meaningful depth. The only sort of "depth" that drafting another QB adds is providing another warm body to play in emergencies; we've already got two of those. If Ramsey gets hurt or "fails to reach the next level," can we really expect a rookie to step up and perform any better than the two other back-ups? Besides, aren't we already paying enough for "depth" with Brunell's contract?

Re: Jason Campbell

We could've waited till the 4th round and taken Adrian McPherson. Who I am absolutely in love with. I think he made a mistake, but it's not that big a deal. This is weak.

Re: Jason Campbell

What happens to Rod Gardner now? Should we keep him? We need a big WR, and he may be the best option left. Can we get a 3rd rounder next year for him?

Re: Jason Campbell

I really wish we had just stayed in the third round and not wasted 3 picks to move into the bottom of the first for a position we didn't even need.

I agree, actually. I was just trying to spin it from the FOs (twisted) perspective. Obviously, if PR goes down this year, it won't be Campbell. But the year after, if PR fails to grow, we might see Campbell. BUt I'm with you. I was pulling for a WR there...

Re: Jason Campbell

I was thinking D End. However, they apparently don't like getting a pass rush from the front 4.

Re: Jason Campbell

im not jumping ship, im just hella confused as to why we had to take a player at a position that isn't a big priority. why? if patrick is gonna be our starting quarterback, why take another one. we still need help at wideout. hasn't anyone thought what might happen if santana moss holds out during the regular season over his contract. maybe they are trying to motivate ramsey to be great during the season. maybe they are trying to trade ramsey. there were still some good receivers left in the draft. there were still some de's still available.

Re: Jason Campbell

Campbell is a great qb. I think if this is the way we are going we need to trade Ramsey NOW. Commit to this change, and see if we can get a decent pick for Ramsey. Miami has a second now (from KC). Trade with them. NOW. Then trade Gardner for a 4th or 5th and start from scratch.

Re: Jason Campbell

Gentlemen, I've been watching many commercials concerning the draft. You know what they say? Draft deep. Yes, there are many studs that come in the first few rounds, but the later rounds also count for a whole lot. The draft is not over. Everything happens for a reason. Relax, everything has to work out, doesn't it?
