I think his pocket presence and scramble ability made his OL look better than they were and I thought they were ok.

But then, I thought the same about Landry
Reference what was originally stated by Smoot, most fans have a much different attitude, almost desperate because we are in such need of a QB. Where the guys making decisions are much more rational and methodical. There's good reason for it as a move up in the draft, costing multiple high round picks to get a guy can cost coaches their jobs and a franchise setback if it fails.

I wouldn't want to be in our coaches and scouting departments shoes this year.

I mean it's not going to shock me if we did trade up for RG3, it's just that from what I hear that doesn't appear to be the current lead intent

Sooo...are you saying they are willing to move up for Luck or Bradford but not RGIII.

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

This is probably the biggest draft for the Skins in over a decade.

This draft will define MS's career as a Redskin's HC.

There has definitely been a change at Redskins Park, this is probably one of the first years in many years that I am excited about the draft more then FA.

I'm saying that from what I've heard consensually (that's actually not a word is it? or is it?) they're more inclined to give up assets for Luck or Bradford over RGIII.

Michael Lombardi is saying the chatter at the Senior Bowl was the Redskins plan to sign Kyle Orton. As I think I mentioned in another thread, I've come around to liking that provided we add a couple of young QBs. I hadn't heard that there was new chatter about Orton to the Redskins during the Senior Bowl but I do know that they inquired with the Broncos about trading for him during the pre-season and regular season (I think I only told Matty about this...apologies to the rest of the mods). I can't recall if they made a bid for him when he was waived.

On a side note is 2005 the last time we had a QB pass for 20 TDs with Brunell's 23 that year?
Not sure but I think JC went 20 td's and 15 picks one year, either 08 or 09 I believe.

Alright Smoot, my question to you is, now that Peyton is 'healthy' how does this involve/effect the Redskins and Luck and the rumor of us possibly getting Luck or Bradford (more so Luck)?

Thanks I don't mean to hound you I am just so nervous/excited about this draft.

Well, he's not totally "healthy" yet. Right now, I don't think anything has changed

Well he was awarded to the Chiefs so that means we did not put in a claim. Orton is a decent bridge option if we can't get one of the big 3 QB's(Luck,Bradford,RG3) I just think we would have claimed him and had a trial run with him in December if our interest was real.

Was our record worse than the Chiefs at that time? I don't recall

I think we're peytons 3,4th option if he gets cut and I think he's our 3,4th option if we don't get the other QB's we want.

I also find it a little odd that yesterday he did an interview with Trey Wingo and he didn't flat out say "I'm feeling 100%, no doubt about it, I have feelings all throughout my arms and legs." He said "I'm feeling better but I still have a little ways to go"

Now all of a sudden he's been cleared!?!? Doesn't make sense to me...
I think Peyton Manning can fit any offense - - other than a Wildcat where he might have to run the ball 15 times a game.

However, try to imagine Peyton Manning in the Skins' training camp as Kyle Shanahan suggests that he change his footwork or his release point. Put thought clouds over Peyton Manning in that scenario and imagine what might go through his mind at that instant.

I doubt the Shanahans would mess with PM much, besides he's pretty sound fundamentally unlike DM who definitely had issues with his footwork his entire career.

Calling Unfair here. D Mac's fundamentals are bad and it effects his efficiency. Severely under/overthrown balls with moderate to no pressure. You don't see Peyton making the same mistakes our coaches tried to fix with McNabb.
