What are you rambling on about now?

The guy said he thought it might be similar to the Brunell situation. I said it's not. Now what is the point you are trying to make?

At MOST, you could say there's a chance that a player available at that point could contribute more to the team over the next 3-4 years than McNabb. But not a single player available at that point - at any position - would be clearly better than McNabb.

Yes, McNabb is not the long-term answer at QB. But the fact is, using a top draft pick on a quarterback would be the worst possible thing this team could do right now. Right now, if we drafted a QB, it would be by a coaching staff and GM in their first 4 months on the job. the scouts evaluating QB prospects are vinny cerrato holdovers awaiting unemployment.

Finding a franchise QB in the NFL draft is one of (if not the) hardest things to do in all of professional sports. By trading for McNabb, we've bought ourselves a couple of years to find him. When we do, the task will be handled by a GM, head coach, and scouting department who have all been working together for at least one or two full seasons.

And when we fiinally find that franchise QB, he'll be learning the ropes from a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback and not Jason Campbell or Rex Grossman.

Unless McNabb really has absolutely nothing left in the tank, I simply don't understand how anyone can think the Skins made a bad move.

Well, no, you just made an ad-hoc attack to misrepresent what I predicted at the time to try to build a case that I don't know what I'm talking about here, EVEN THOUGH, my record gives me great credibility, no matter how good I thought Brady Quinn could be coming out of Notre Dame (update: quite good, not Manning good, he was not No. 1 on my board that year).

And once the argument leaves the point where you're debating the facts, it's clear you'd rather I be wrong than you be right.

Fair enough, excellent way to frame it, BHA.

No, that's not what I was doing at all.

I brought up your previous predictions to contrast to this following declaration you made:

"Again, you're not getting a prediction from me whether or not he will crash in 2010 or not."

I do see that you have a problem with following the conversation and sticking to the point, though.

It definitely has that Brunell smell to it.

They know that we have finished at the bottom of our division for about 10 years straight, and thats not likely to change much this year or next. They also probably had no intentions of resigning him after this year and thought that the Redskins could be likely suitors for him next year especially if we kept Campbell around this year. So yeah they send a their pretty good qb to us, but we are the worst team in the division so how bad could it be. So in exchange for a guy that was going to be cut in a year they get a very high second (immediate contributor) and probably a third next year.

Also for people that were against the Gaither potential trade for the simple fact that we can sign him in FA next year you shouldnt be for this trade. Itís the same thing, except a little more costly pick-wise.

Alex Smith would not work in this O, because he's too much tied to the spread offense.
Orton and Pennington would not work as well because they can't attack the deep secondary, which in turns limits what Shanahan can exploit.
Brett Farve would be better than McNabb in this O. Just as good ability to attack deep, but better on the intermediate and shorter throws(quick slant).
Jason Campbell is woefully inconsistent. Throws that should be routine are a chore to him, and he has shown very little that he has other skills to adequately compensate.

Is that sufficient for you to stop calumniating me in that I think ANY(YES, YOU SAID ANY, which means all I have to do is mention JUST ONE example of where another QB would stink it up with Shanahan, and I mentioned three) QB is better than JC.

This isn't about stats. This is about McNabb's skillset. And I love to see your crazy argument that a one-dimensional offense doesn't inhibit the QB. Having a running game makes the probability that the D will bite on play action or think the play is a run MUCH MORE OFTEN.

Steve Deberg also had inflated stats. That didn't mean Walsh thought he was worth sticking with over Montana.
Burden of proof is on you, dude. It's your claim that Reid's offense was so unbalanced that it make McNabb's job difficult, not mine. As a hypothesis, I think it's legit, but you might as well put "I think" before it because I don't have to agree with every distant assumption you make, just like you don't have to agree with the way I use completion percentage and sack rate to show value.

In the absence of personal expertise on what makes the Shanahan offense click, your entire argument is valueless. You critique me for appealing to my own expertise, but I'm very forthright in where I'm deriving my opinions. You just write stuff seemingly to make me read it.

That's three things cleverly disguised as two!

Considering that I'm having 5 different conversations in the same thread, you'll have to forgive me for such fallibility.

You're still not getting a single-year prediction from me, just an obvious observation regarding the evidence that disproves that there are no signs of decline for McNabb. No idea why this reluctance to predict something I don't have a great read on caused you to bring up some wide range of things I predicted.

Re: McNabb a Redskin! (Part II)

Funny how a year ago it seemed like Cutler was going to be a Redskin and rumors were out there about McNabb ending up in Chicago.

Re: McNabb a Redskin! (Part II)

Now that it's done, I'm 90% in favor. But the one thing that's been on my mind is pick #37 this year. In the long run, wouldn't it have been better to take the two best offensive tackles in the 1st and 2nd knowing how horrific the line was last year?

Doesn't matter anymore though.

That's the point. You were reluctant to make a prediction, when that's all you seem to do.

By the way, please stop claiming things are so "obvious" or trying to assert opinions as fact. It doesn't work, unless you have a credible record, which you don't.
