I don't want to say that I'm drunk on the BOB Kool-aid but I'm satisfied that he'll pick the best candidate for what he wants to do and he'll make that pick as much based on the football IQ of the guy as anything we're seeing in highlights on Youtube.

Bill's got this. I'm fine with whoever he decides to go with.
This is pretty much where I'm at also. Everything else is slingblade hand-wringing. The year JJ Watt was drafted I heard lots of moaning and griping...the year 0k0ye was drafted I heard lots of satisfied musings and the all knowing head nods.

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?!

I agree with the sentiment that BOB will have a good idea of who he wants. My guess is that guy will be Bridgewater. From what I understand he lost some weight because he had reconstructive jaw surgery to fix a severe overbite prior to last season so he wasnt able to eat enough.

If he gains 25 lbs to be closer to 240 I think he'll be fine durability wise. He's got real good touch on the passes I've seen, doesn't seem to throw INTs and has really good pocket presence.

I'm not sure about Blake Bortles. Fiesta Bowl will be the first time I'll see him. I see him as being the #2 behind Bridgewater right now.

I highly doubt Manziel will be a Texan.

Probably McGloin, given the way I feel about this coaching hire.

Teddy Bridgewater is Texan worthy, just so happens they need a QB & have the first selection overall in the 2014 NFL Draft http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...r-all-32-teams

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?!

Can anyone post a more credible critique of Bridgewaters "piss poor mechanics" because apart from his ability to diagnose a defense, his footwork, quick release, velocity, pocket awareness and accuracy are way better than any QB in college football not named Winston. Do people really believe an exaggerated over the top release like Hundley is ideal all of the time? I prefer a guy who can make multiple angle deliveries.

You'd rather a bad coach that has already proven he's a failure?

No, only if they have won multiple Super Bowls.

It's a wonder any coach gets a first time gig in the NFL, after everyone retires there's no one with NFL head coaching experience left.

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?!

In 2014, I wouldn't be surprised to see Matt Cassel show up, via a trade or in free agency if he is released by the Vikes. In the future, I'm not discounting Brett Hundley entering the draft and climbing up boards. He would have the best metrics of any of the QBs, plus upside. I see a lot of Cam Newton in Hundley.

Kyle Orton was mentioned earlier. I'd have no problem with that as a stop gap QB. Dallas will have to cut him to help fix their cap situation.

Pats fans are ready to trade Mallet to us for a 3rd. Don't know enough about him to like him or not.

Not impressed. Watched him yesterday and he's another new breed who would rather make a play with his feet than his arm. Throwing to wide open receivers on a post doesn't show me much, he's not reading the defense, looking off DBs or adjusting the play at the line.

Who was the last "running" QB to win a Super Bowl, Steve Young? Just saying.

Hundley would be better served by going back to school and learning the science of quarterbacking, his physical ability alone will not get it done at the next level. Reminds me a lot of VY when he was in school.

That Bruin LB #20 was the most impressive player on the fueld yesterday IMO.

Im I'm looking forward to watching Bortles and see what the hype is about. Petty to me is a system guy I think anyone who runs the Briles/Sumlin offense will have big numbers.

Cassel, Kyle orton. Really? And then what? Hope we get a low pick next year to draft a qb for the future? Lets just rename the Texans to the Browns of the south.
