ECU grad myself, graduated last may. I couldnt agree more, he makes iffy decisions way too much and yes our play calling was horrible considering it only consisted of slants, screens and draws. Im really praying for a RGIII chance since I think Luck is unrealistic. Flynn has looked good in his LITTLE time playing, but I mean what has he really proved? He won 2 games with the Super Bowl Champs and arguably the best receiving corp and best tight end in the game. I wouldnt mind taking a shot on him but not for too much money.

Finley is good, but he is nowhere near Graham, Gronkowski, or even Antonio Gates.

He isn't, but I think he has that kind of ability.

Of course, so does Fred Davis.

I agree with GTripp, I certainly think he is just as good as all of the above. Its just that Graham and Grankowski get thrown to more and are a bigger part of each of their teams gameplan, the Packers have weapons on offense for days.

Finley, quietly in the top 5 for drops this season. No sense to get Finley with Fred Davis here and Davis is gonna be much more affordable.

Good point. We didn't even sneeze in his direction when he was available. How's his bum shoulder of his holding up in New Orleans?

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Looking at Tannehill and Jones I don't look at their stats/performance because their indelibly linked to the circumstances that occur with their surrounding team and coaching.
Therefore I'm not concerned nor do I worry about perceived 'dips' in performance because it doesn't change their physical skillset.
Its why a prospect like Locker can have a perceived 'bad' season and still get drafted top 10.

I only look at skillset/talent: can/how does their skillset project at the next level.

Their scheme doesn't matter much to me because all the prospect will(should) have the best coaching of their lives at the next level.

The prospects should all have their best football ahead of them.

And I can't understand why............I guess what I'm saying is that if Jones isn't going to respond to coaching, I can't justify keeping him ranked above Tannehill, no matter how talented his right arm is.
GT-
As far as the arm talent difference between Jones and Tannehill I just don't see it.
Tannehill can flat out hum it; the litmus test for NFL arm strength from the far hash to the far sideline with ease.
I've seen him hit the seam with ease and drop in 'bucket' throws.

Imo (sum):
Tannehill=Jones arm talent
Tannehill>Jones athleticism(avoid)/playmaking
Jones=experience; especially in know when/what type of throw to use in a given situation
Tannehill>Jones integration into Kyle's offense because of the A&M/Houston offense connection

BUT-
Don't get me wrong I like Jones.(subtracting Broyles from that offense hurt OU)
He reminds me of a more mobile Ryan Mallett and I liked Mallett alot.
I'm just hashing out why I rank Tannehill ahead for this team.

In your estimation does Jeff Fisher in St loius raise or lower our chances of getting Bradford?

I don't see the Rams drafting RG III unless they feel that he's the only guy who can compensate for not having a good offensive line and still make big plays. I think it's a better move for the Rams to trade down (they don't have to trade down that far) to pick up more picks to help rebuild the offensive line. I think ultimately, they keep Sam Bradford.

In this case, it means some team having enough fire power to rocket up to that pick to land RG III. I don't think it's Miami, as I feel they are fine with going into next season with Matt Moore. Cleveland is a possibility, and I'm not sure if the Redskins are willing to move up to land RG III. I know it was rumored of Denver to move up, but they're not even picking in the first 20 picks, I would think they would have to give up a King's ransom and then some to move all the up to the Rams pick.

I'm starting to believe that the Redskins are not going to make a big splash this offseason for that star QB. They DO have to replace John Beck with a competent backup, but other than that, I'm thinking the Redskins front office continues on with their current plan and THEN maybe looks at the quarterback of the future next offseason.

The big IF is, IF the Redskins stay relatively healthy and have better depth built on the offensive line and in some key positions, the Redskins might win 8 to 10 games. If they win 10 games WITH Rex Grossman this coming season (yes, I know it's a stretch) then Shanahan is going to look like a genius in being patient and getting that future franchise QB next year. By his fifth season, the Redskins will be solid.
