If you have a degree from Notre Dame, then you are an overhyped and selfish bastard and you are stealing money from your employers!

Otherwise, of course not.

Good points.

You're essentially saying that the last pick of the 5th round is a better prospect than a guy who up until 3 days before the draft was neck and neck for the first pick. As the saying goes "you're off your rocker!"

Do I know for certain that Troy Smith won't be the next Donovan McNabb? No, I do not. Can I be more than reasonably sure that he's not the prospect Quinn is? Yes, yes I can.

And what's with this "winner" crap? Are you saying that if the Ravens put Troy Smith in at QB, they will automatically beat up on teams like Ohio State did because...Troy Smith has an aura?! Dude, that's non-analysis at its best.
GTripp I respect your oppinion, but that's all it is........YOUR oppinion.
You have yours and I have mine.

First - Charlie endorsed him. Pretty good endorsement.
Second - Look at his work ethic, Russell showed up fat and out of shape, Quinn was ripped and ready.
Third - He learned a pro offense and how to study and prepare in college.
Fourth - He was a student of the game.

You are a freaking OSU homer and are not objective so your posts almost don't deserve a response. But since they were so stupid I will opine. You who are so keen into the pro football world apparently ranked Troy Smith as a first round pick, unlike all the 6 figure experts that are paid to analyze and do this for a living. While I will agree that they don't always predict talent to the best degree, you and your vast depth of insight disagreed with about 30 of the best experts paid by the business. Please educate me with your great knowledge and expertise...you freaking goof....are you fucking kidding me...you are so blind in your homerism you can't be objective. Are you honestly trying to sell me that Smith who got kicked off the team (why?) is a better QB than Quinn.? Look at the numbers and if you want to go there then I will absolutely embarrass you.

God Bless America...and I'm out....
Wow! Didn't know expressing my oppinion would strike a nerve with you. No need for the personal attacks, but it's all good.
All I'm tryin to say is that i don't like how these so called experts grade any prospect. Heart and desire can't be measured.

I think he was wise to wait for contract to include incentives, and I think the Browns undersold him from the get go.
