How is that worse? Why is he a potential franchise cornerstone, and Troy Smith isn't? Is it because he played for Charlie Wiess? The guy hasn't won squat! It's not too difficult to play that cupcake ND schedule and put up numbers. Troy Smith is a winner, and a hometown kid who wanted to go to Cleveland. He would be in camp.
As I recall, Ryan Leaf was a potential franchise cornerstone too.

Re: Is Brady Quinn Being Selfish By Holding Out?

pay like the 22nd pick becuase that is what he was picked as, he does not deserve anymore or anyless. That seams pretty fair in my book he could have gone a lot farther if the browns had not taken him. I think he should feel lucky that he got picked at all in the first round becuase for a little while I really thought he might go in the 2nd.

Quinn's going to be good. I think he'll be very good. Some think he'll never reach the pro bowl level, and thats more than reasonable. But I have to question your knowledge of the game if you are comparing Brady Quinn to Ryan Leaf. There are no similarities.

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.

I will say this. Troy Smith was every bit as good a college QB as Brady Quinn, if not better. What does Brady Quinn do better than Troy Smith?

Well, that's a entirely different argument right there. But in a nutshell, just from a physical standpoint, Brady is more of a pro-style quarterback than Troy Smith.

Has height, unlike Smith. Is a good NFL prospect, unlike Smith.

Troy Smith had a better 2006 season than Quinn and deserved the Heismann. But when comparing their careers, its not even close. Brady Quinn was better in every season prior to 2006 than Smith. Every one. That's called sample size.

It's reasonable to say if the 2006 NCAA season was done over again, Quinn would probably have the better season. When theres only 13 games to be played, anything can happen.

I think part of the reason Smith wasn't a great prospect was because it was, ya know, too little too late. One great season does not a prospect make. Ask Akili Smith.

The first team that was willing to even spend a pick on him was Baltimore with the last pick in the 5th round. At that point, hes a great value. But as they say, you get what you pay for (most of the time).

Re: Is Brady Quinn Being Selfish By Holding Out?

The NFL is a very weird place. I mean JaMarcus Russell was the #1 pick and he only played two seasons at LSU. It's all about intangibles and potential and I'm afraid both Quinn and Smith are lacking in that department. Particularity Smith because of his odd throwing style and height. As for Quinn, he's all hype rubber stamped with ND logo.

Only time will tell who's going to be a decent NFL QB.

So why is Quinn better? Just cause he threw it all over the place does not make him better. He just played in a pass heavy offense.

Is Quinn a better pro prospect becasue he is 6'3? That does not make him better, just taller.. From what I saw, Smith can make every throw Quinn can make. OSU ran lots of spread formations, 4-5 WR sets and Smith was making all the NFL throws from the pocket. So again, why is he being downgraded by scouts? Is it because of his height? If so that is ridicules.

Did you watch any OSU games the last two years? The guy was one of the best QB's in the country. He played in a spread offense and made all the throws. So how is Quinn more ready? Because of Weiss? I think it's a bunch of hype. Time will tell.

Re: Is Brady Quinn Being Selfish By Holding Out?

Ya I guess I would rather have Quinn than Smith but I like Troy Smith. His athletiscism is AWESOME, he's just a little short. He's listed a 6 feet but he looks about 5'9"-5'10". Its hard for him to throw in the pocket because he cant see over his linemen. Outside the pocket the guy is the shiz.

Tough choice. Maybe Troy will RANDOMLY get 6 inches taller. lol
