And in general I don't think the way you describe the thought process is how coaches approach their QB decisions.
I don't believe a coach would ever draft a QB with the thought: I don't believe QB X has a chance to become franchise QB, prove us wrong.
I'm sure that wasn't the thought when Walsh drafted Montana in the 3rd.
Also IIRC Holmgren has never drafted a QB in the 1st round.
And has produced more quality QBs then most.
His track record suggests that when it comes to QBs he right far more often then the NFL at large.

On the whole I don't think QB gurus judge or gauge their opinion on a QB by how much they had to give up to acquire them.
Rather they seek to use their understanding of what they're looking for in a QB to spend/draft lower then the the rest of the league.
Well don't shoot the messenger. I'm just telling you what this scout (former actually) and some others think is happening in Cleveland.

Me personally? I think they don't really have an opinion on McCoy yet

Not at all, didn't intend to shoot the messenger.
Just speculating on the plausibility/logic behind some of the info out there.

Holmgren is quoted to have said that he wants to bring in competition.
It just doesn't seem logical to me to draft high or give up high draft picks for competition, that would be for replacement.

I took that as bringing in veteran competition but, I guess should start thinking of a worse case scenario instead of hoping for the best.

Well I know they're referencing us because I found the link to that forum in the link backs section at the bottom of this thread. But yeah that's horrible. One random guy comes in here and says he thinks McCoy and Shipley are coming here and then it's a legit rumor? Only in the offseason.

I thought that I would seek more inside info than vague press conference coach-speak.

Nevertheless, I would support signing him as a backup. I think he's more than adequate in that role.

It's not like Kyle gave Rex a ringing endorsement, he said they need to upgrade the position. Which doesn't really bode well for Rex coming back again to start.

I would be totally stunned if Bradford is playing for any team other than St Louis or Washington

It would be funny if Rex was on a different team but because he was i find that comment a little disconcerting.
Rex Grossman is not a playmaker in anyway shape or form.

That's good because reading that rumor was a punch in the gut. I can live with St Louis keeping him but if they make him available and the Skins don't get it done I am gonna lose it.
