Or if you had Carr's athleticism with Schaub's dedication and smarts you'd have one hell of a QB.

Sure, but it's Matt Cassel. Matt Cassel, a 32 yo QB that had a good season under one of the greatest coach's ever 6, going on 7 years ago.

Yep. I have long said that a David Carr/Matt Schaub hybrid QB would be an absolute freak of nature like we've never seen before.

Because he was such a good mentor to Keenum last season. Always in Kubiak's ear about getting in the game.

O'Brien was the TEs coach when Cassell played well in New England. Josh McDaniels (the Patriots current OC/QB coach) was Cassell's OC/QB coach.


Doesn't mean we can't win with Cassell, just an FYI.

I remember in 2011, after Schaub got hurt, I still had hopes that we'd get to the AFC Championship game. We had a strong running game, with a dominant OL, Arian Foster, & Ben Tate. The Defense did their part, by getting off the field.

Not so much has changed in the NFL, that a team built that way can still go far with a game manager at QB. Not that I'm satisfied with a game manager at QB. I just don't want to spend an elite draft pick on a non-elite player. Even if we trade down to 5, I wouldn't want to spend that pick on any of these QBs. 12~15 is where I think these QBs should go & if we can fall into that range.. well, I'd probably spend the 10th pick on one of them, but that's my stretch pick.

I don't think it is imperative that we get a QB in this draft. I don't think you have to have a top 5 pick to get a franchise QB. Aaron Rodgers was picked with the 23rd, Flacco with the 18th, Roethlisberger & Cutler were picked with the 11th. & we've had multiple picks in that range.

Our problem was (& I'm just as guilty as anyone) sticking with a guy who could have been & passing on those guys I mentioned. Heck... to tell you the truth, I believe Kubiak could have made Kevin Kolbe & Brady Quinn more "special" than he made Schaub.

What does excite me about next season, is that OB brought in RAC to run the defense. Hopefully he'll let Romeo do his thing & focus on his offense, something he's supposed to be good at. Then guys like Garopolo, Smith, & Fales enter the equation as possible franchise QBs...... imo. Maybe even Keenum.



But he's so little.

How great is Cassell going to be? He probably fancies himself as a starter and when he loses that to the young pup, I doubt he welcomes the change with open arms.

My reasoning is based on money. If we hadn't stupidly extended Schaub, I would be all for it.
