Fine let me rephrase. I don't think there's a shot in hell that McCoy's career is going to be better than Bradford's. No hate for McCoy, I have confidence he CAN be very good, but I also have confidence that Bradford WILL be Great.

No worries, just giving you a hard time.
Kinda wanted to see if you would concede any point in our discussion.

Don't mind me, should have just let it go I guess.

Re: sam bradford

yep I agree Matty.

There may be a guy or two from this years draft that we could have a legitimate grip against missing out on.

BTW I love our draft and cannot fault the FO for trying to get us as many players as possible.

Re: sam bradford

Sam wasn't even a big time QB in HS here, in fact he was considered a better golfer than QB. Guy just worked hard and is a very underrated athlete with a Big time arm and all the smarts. basically he has all the tools to be a great one.

If Flacco is JC, then you have just thrown the rest of the Redskins' roster under the bus.

Flacco's team has made the playoffs more than once; JC and the Redskins were also-rans. If Flacco = JC, that can only mean that the rest of the Skins team stunk it up and cost a playoff berth.

Is that your message?

Do you mean that the Skins will post better offensive numbers than they did in 1999 or that they will be better in the NFL rankings on offense than they were in 1999?

If you mean the latter, there is ONLY ONE possible outcome:
The Skins will have THE BEST offense in the NFL in 2011.
I would be willing to take that wager...

Re: sam bradford

Has Bradford won the superbowl or an MVP trophy?

I remember wishing we hadn't drafted Patrick Ramsey so we would be going after Grossman the next draft. I bet Spurrier didn't want to draft Ramsey, and if he had the chance to get Grossman I bet his offense would have been a lot more dynamic. Grossman led the Bears to the super bowl his first season as a starter. I really look at the rest of the NFL for being pretty stupid for not getting this guy, basically because I know he can play and the Redskins are going to surprise the NFL. The Redskins receiving core is actually good too even though it didn't look that way a month ago. I really like how Terrence Austin has been looking.
Never let facts get in the way of conclusions:

1. Patrick Ramsey was the draft pick "mandated" by Danny Boy. He told the Wash Post Magazine that he was the one who "discovered" Ramsey and recognized the strength of Ramsey's arm and realized that the Skins needed to take him before any other team did.

2. Grossman took the Bears to the Super Bowl in the ONLY season that he was the starter for the entire season - - not in his FIRST year as a starter. He was with the Bears for two years after that Super Bowl run; would you like to demonstrate for all of us here what his awe-inspiring stats were for those seasons? My recollection is - - and I will be happy to be corrected here - - that Grossman lost his starting job about 3-5 games into the season after he "led the Bears" to the Super Bowl and that he never recovered his job in Chicago for a season and a half.

3. If - - I said IF - - the Shanahans decide to sit Grossman on the bench and play John Beck at the start of the 2011 season, are you going to say that the Shanahans are a bunch of dummies just like the rest of the NFL because they do not recognize the greatness of Rex Grossman? Remember, you will be saying that a two-time Super Bowl winning head coach is a doofus if that is your position...

4. I still think you are Rex Grossman's mother posting here under the screen-name jonny5dicky.

If that is your criterion for "overrated", what is your adjective to describe Rex Grossman who can either throw an INT when the game is close OR he can fumble the ball away in the same circumstance? Does Grossman's "versitility" here count as a positive or a negative?

Re: sam bradford

Is it not allowed in your world SC to discuss other teams and players without it having to relate back to the Skins in some fashion? lol

Don't blame Houston's awful D on Schaub. Flacco actually has accuracy as well, something JC will never consistently have.

Re: sam bradford

Eli Manning is underrated. He is a franchise qb IMO. Stats are strongly correlated with how good a player is, but they are not the end all be all. I watched alot of NYG games last season, The vast majority of picks Eli threw did not seem to be his fault.

Flacco is junk, he is JC IMO. Flacco doesn't seem to have 3 critical elements of being a franchise qb. He doesn't seem to have good vision, he doesn't seem to have good pocket presence (he lead the league in sacks after 3 seconds), and he doesn't seem to be able to deliver the ball quickly to his intended targets (yes I know he has arm strength, but the time from when he sees his target to when he throws the ball seems to be forever). Basically, he doesn't seem to have the intangibles needed to be an above average qb.
