QB Combo Possibilities: Which Do You Want (QB Rumors: Verse 10)
 
Figured the QB Rumors Volume 9 thread was starting to run its course so let's start a fresh one (There will certainly be more news over the next week so we'll be starting the 11th version in mere days, I'm sure)

So let's run through some of the possible QB combos (talking just 1st and 2nd string, not considering the 3rd and beyond)

I'll rank them in order of likelihood, and you all can vote and tell me who you'd want as our starting and back-up QBs in 2012 (voting will be public)

[B]
1. Griffin/Grossman:[/B] The clubhouse leader at the moment, but by no means a lock. Griffin trade probably means losing a handful of picks this year (but not looking as likely a player will be traded, though still being considered). And the talks with Grossman's people continue.

[B]2. Orton/Tannehill:[/B] Rumors that Tannehill might actually be taken before the Redskins are currently scheduled to pick at 6th. I think that's probably a bluff, but regardless I wouldn't be totally surprised to see Tannehill taken at 6th because he probably won't last beyond 12th. Orton would be a solid veteran QB, my main concern with him is that he's kind of a dick"

[B]
3. Manning/Cousins:[/B] This could easily be the 2nd most likely scenario. The demand for Manning should be fairly high though and I don't think we plan on getting into a bidding war.

[B]4. Weeden/J. Johnson:[/B] Rumors of a trade down or trade up for Weeden at the end of the 1st round. And Bruce Allen's connection to Josh Johnson has people thinking he might come here. This scenario, however, is not very likely from what I've heard.

[B]5. Hoyer/Foles:[/B] Not much of a chance of happening at all. Hoyer's less likely by the day to leave New England...but if he does...

So which combo would you want?

easy question for me. option UNO. we have gone too long without a good quarterback, why draft another subpar quarterback?? Griffin is very special and his kind does not come around very often, we have to take him. Grossman knows the offense very well and i wouldnt mind seeing him as a backup but i think it would be good to bring in someone like Orton and a younger guy as well like Clausen or J.Johnson.

Griffin/Henne.

But since that choice was not listed, Griffin/Grossman.

What Lotus said. Can't make it any simpler than that. The NFL today rewards teams who have playmakers at qb. Let's go get ours.

I definitely want #1, but #2 and #3 both would be ok by me. We need a playmaker, and in my opinion only #1 achieves that, but all 3 would easily put us in a better qb situation than last year, at least in my opinion.

there will be qb threads until draft. Or possibly even To Infinity and Beyond!

whats the eta on when a potential trade with the rams could be completed?

Re: QB Combo Possibilities: Which Do You Want (QB Rumors: Verse 10)
 
RG3 and Grossman all the way. Grossman knows the offense, has played in it, and would be the perfect back up QB. Griffin III on the other hand could run the offense and be a dynamic play maker..

Officially, not before March 13. Unofficially, as I type right now

Wonder what the voting would have been like if I did something like Griffin/J. Johnson instead of Griffin/Grossman or Manning/Tannehill

I really don't know which of the combos I listed I'd prefer, which is why I haven't voted yet.

On the one hand Griffin/Grossman is great but we're giving up a lot of draft picks potentially. On the other hand, Peyton freakin' Manning! (even if he's not 100% healthy, he's still one of the best QBs in the league)

Tough call

Is there any chance of Manning/Griffen?

Well QB is our biggest need and our biggest topic of conversation in the locker room.

Impression we've gotten is that people don't like thread to go on for 1000s of posts so instead of one never-ending QB thread, we'll keep doing it this way

How is it beating a dead horse? The rumors keep changing and a clean thread keeps the subject fresh.

Exactly thank you for setting these up and taking the time to share your knowledge!

We all owe SS a few beers!
