I didn't claim there was a lack of talent. You claimed there was a surfeit.

Default Re: AJ McCarron

I would not take mccaron. Would rather roll with keenum. Too many holes in this team to mess around with a 3rd or 4th rd QB.

Either grab a top flight guy or grab a guy with huge upside.

Default Re: AJ McCarron

What I want to see from McCarron -- or any QB we select -- is more passion/competitiveness. I'd like to see him impose his will on an outcome... and to demonstrate a personality where losing is unacceptable. I don't want another lukewarm Matt Schaub.

I guarantee you Tom Brady throws temper tantrums when he's losing/loses. Like Big Papi...

I'd rather he go but not too concerned as it could harm him more than help. These guys are playing with others they do not know. Let me clarify I am talking about QBs and WRs. He does need to go to combine though.

Disappointed that he's not going. This was a chance to see him on an even playing field. He could go out there and prove a lot if he upstaged the other QB's at the event. Geno Smith had some questions last year and skipping the Senior Bowl really hurt his stock.

I kinda agree with McCarron. What the hell is there left to prove or show. 4 years, 3 National Championships, ton of stats and an ugly ass chest tat...

What is a Senior Bowl and a handful of snaps gonna show the last 4 years hasn't?

Geno Smith isn't a 3 time National Champion QB either. HE needed the Senior Bowl, can't say McCarron really does.

That he can adapt.

Not difficult to look good against Bull Nation 4 Life Junior College with blue chip players at every position and Nick Saban as your coach. Let's see how you do on a different playing field.

If I was him, I wouldn't do it either, because I assume he will look terrible compared to the rest of the QBs.

stupidest thing you have ever said, and you have said allot. Adapt to what? So it's the kids fault his coach is Nick Saban and its the kids fault he has NFL caliber players on his team?

If anything, McCarron should blend in nicely with the NFL, being he has practically played with NFL players for 4 years...

Not his fault, it's his blessing. If you're confident in your skills you showcase them, if you're scared and feel you might hurt yourself, you hide them.

Playing with NFL players is definitely awesome and not his fault at all, playing only a handful of teams that had them playing against him is a little different. I think the Senior Bowl would be great to see how he plays with AND against NFL type talent.

Thanks though for the compliments.

Not the first and won't be the last, he will have his workout at his pro day and that's all that really matters.

No thanks. If he needs elite level blockers and skill guys just to be average I want no part of that.

Oklahoma has his head spinning so far.

Yeah, he got exposed tonight when he actually had to throw more than 25 times.

I've said it for a while, he's the Trent Dilfer of College Football. That translates to 7-8 year backup in the NFL.
