I see much of the same skill set in Tannehill as I see in RGIII. Like you, I think his game just needs to be refined.
Oh, I agree about the deep ball accuracy Griff especially but Luck too are both better deep ball passer at this point.
But, I wonder how much of that advantage was aided by scheme?
To my eye both Griff/Luck and played in offenses that threw deep more often then A&M so I wonder how much the increased frequency of deep attempts (not to mentions WRs or TE that got w i d e open) created the disparity in deep ball accuracy?

I wish we had access to the numbers for deep passing for college QBs like we do with NFL.

*Shrugs* On some of the sideline passes like the deep comebacks I was puzzled by how often Sherman called them.
It seemed predictable after awhile and I thought the defenses began picking up on that and Tannehill made some poor decisions trying to muscle the ball in there on arm strength.

My point is that I would have no problem with the Skins signing a mid-level, interim QB in FA and taking Tannehill with the 6th pick, if that's what it comes to. If there is no chance for RGIII and the Skins decide to go with Tannehill, I just don't want to see them trade down and miss out on their guy. Let Mel Kiper and others spout off all they want about the Skins "reaching" and whatever other know-it-all stuff they want to say. Just don't miss.
Me neither.
I think Parcell's said 'better 1 round early then 1 pick too late'.

My ideal would solutions for the QB position would be:
Peyton Manning + journeyman QB with starters potential+later round developmental rookie QB

here's my thoughts/scenarios for the draft:

o Trade with the Vikings @ 3 for Griffin

o Hope Griffin falls to 6

o Draft Tannehill @ 6

o Trade down/then up for Tannehill

o Take Foles/Weeden in the 2nd round

o Take Osweiler in the 4th knowing most likely he'll need to sit the year, which would require a FA starting QB ^^^^-------------(least favorite option Kirk Cousins)

o Take Wilson with the second 4th rounder or trade up in the 5th (love Wilson)

o complete flyer on Darron Thomas 5th-6th round

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

Somebody linked this a while back, I forget what thread though...

I Ran Into Jim Haslett and We Talked QB Draft, Manning, Trading Up - Hogs Haven

And now it's on NFL.com and Haslett is having to explain himself for it...

If you have eight quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks?

The source was a man of God so either he was lying about everything or he was telling the truth in excruciating detail.

Well according to this...

Redskins “have a game plan” at quarterback, which Haslett may have let out of the bag | ProFootballTalk

We've talked about this before, and I believe the story 100%. Why? Because other insiders have been saying the same thing he reported for months now.

/begin rant



That said, the dude who had to run and tell the world what JH said is a douche bag. I don't give a rats ass if is a pastor. The mere fact he's "supposed" to be a Redskins fan yet doesn't mind getting one of the coaches in potential hot water all because he can't shut his trap? Posting it on a forum is one thing, but going all out on a highly viewed site like Hog's Haven is another thing.

Not only that, but once the media firestorm kicked in, the dude had the option to come out and say "no comment'. NO, what does this asshole do? He continues on with his 15 minutes of fame going on radio shows and talking to the press to confirm the story. Really guy? Are you that hard up to be in the press/media? Did mommy not love you enough? Does God not show you enough attention?

Jim Haslett, the pastor and the Redskins blog - DC Sports Bog - The Washington Post


The guy should be kicked in the balls. Have respect for the guy(haslett) who was nice enough with you to share the teams plans.




/end rant


I feel better.

I agree with NC's rant.

The Pastor should've just quoted his "sources" like SS does.

Definitely not a cool move by this guy to kiss and tell.

At the same time JH needs to be smarter than that.

In his defense though he didn't really write the article. I think what happened was he posted his story in the comments section of Hogs Haven and the guys at Hogs Haven decided to turn it into an article after the attention it got in the comment section.

It's funny how we like hearing the info but yet we are also mad at him for going online and spilling what he and Haslett talked about.

True.

The article doesn't bug me that much. But if he's going to the press and on talk shows to defend the story to the death... that's inappropriate IMO.

Is it possible Haslett's the one laughing? Maybe what he told The Pastor was complete BS, or the total opposite of what we're really thinking?

I think that is more likely the truth.

Plus no one has mentioned that The Pastor may be one of those people who is a poor listener and thus heard what he wanted to hear.

Haslett: "We're going to buy a ham"
The Pastor: "Haslett said that we are going to try to trade up with the Rams."

If I'm Haslett I'm spilling all the beans, even if those beans are make-believe just to throw people off course.

Haslett: Just between us man, we really believe that Kyle Orton is our long term guy of the future. And in case he doesn't work out, we're going to try and see if we can grab Charlie Whitehurst away from the Seahawks in the event they make a move at qb. And our final option is Chase Daniel, we're pretty sure he can be had for pennies on the dollar. Just don't tell anyone.

I believe we get inside info here without disclosing the source, the guy could have easily done that.
