And right there, you've already made what I consider a logical mistake.

The experts and pundits create their boards and project where they think guys will be picked. They're trying to figure out which guys are highly ranked by which teams. The experts and pundits have several hundred guys on their boards as possible draft picks.

The teams don't have that many guys on their boards. If some dude is ranked highly by the experts and pundits, it doesn't mean squat to the actual teams.

I don't know that Johnny Manziel or Teddy Bridgewater were even ON our board. JM could have dropped to the 3rd round and I don't know if we would have taken him.

Of course there's no exact way to know unless they tell us, but the experts and pundits have some cred here otherwise they couldn't accurately project which guys are most likely to go in what round...which most credible experts and pundits can do fairly easily for the 1st 2-3 rounds..especially the 1st rounders.

Maybe JFF and TB were never on our draft board..maybe they were. Regardless, just as we can't assume that they would've taken TB had he fell to 33...you can't rule it out either without the benefit of hindsight that is. The only thing we knew up to that point is that BoB had said nothing but glowing things about all of the 1st round qb's and he potentially could've had 1 of those 1st round guys fall into his lap.

Bortles will be the only rookie starter week one.

TB may get a shot if Cassel struggles, but may not get to start at all this year if he doesn't.

Manziel starts after the bye week.

Carr starts after MS goes down with another vagina bruise, or gets picked incessantly.

Savage unlikely to start this year IMO.

I don't give them that much credit. When an expert or a pundit gets "inside information", it's usually just a smoke screen.

I took a look once at WRs and their production, comparing where the experts thought they would be drafted vs. where they actually were drafted. The thing was that the experts were pretty good at determining which WRs were going to be drafted, they were just really bad at determining which ROUND the WRs were going to be drafted.

But the main thing to consider is how many people just assumed we HAD to take a QB in the first 2 rounds. Almost all those pundits were absolutely sure we were going to take either Carr or Garoppolo at 33. If TB had been there, they would have been sure we were going to take him there, as well. But we didn't take Carr or Garoppolo.

Rick Smith has not had a problem going up and getting guys he wants. If they had really wanted TB, if they thought TB was a top 15 talent, they wouldn't have waited for him to drop to 33. The fact that they didn't trade up to go get him implies that they really didn't have that high of a score on him and that they had other guys they wanted more.

TPN is spot on with that last comment, we'll in the whole imo. The Texans have moved to get their target. The lack of a move spells no special interest pretty loudly.

I don't think Henne was the worst QB in the league in 2013 but I don't see Bortles on the bench for long either.

I think the whole "sitting Bortles for a year" thing is more about their OC (Jed Fisch) & QB's coach (Frank Scelfo) than it is about Bortles. Not a whole lot of experience there & Bradley probably wants to make sure he doesn't have a "Dr. Chilton fumbling at his head..." type situation.

If it were me, that's what I would do. Henne has strengths & weaknesses. He's shown the ability to at least manage an offense. Now, I want to know if Fisch & Scelfo can use him to put together a competitive offense. If so, then they'll get the keys to the new car. If not, Bortles stays on the bench & we're going to get the best "experience" we can in the offseason.

In all honesty, there's not much difference between the Jags & us. I think it will be an interesting exercise comparing what Bradley does in Jacksonville to what OB does here in Houston. After their offseason acquisitions, we're basically the same team, in the same division, going against the same schedule.

Henne looking good against the bears. If he keeps it up, going to be hard to pull him.

But if they do I wouldn't mind trading for him.

I didn't see he game, but Marc Sessler from NFL.com said the same thing. But watching those highlighs, it just sounds like hate to me.

Sure, Schaub didn't look dynamic, not a lot of "wow" but he was getting the job done with poor pass protection. Which is it looks bad now, it's really going to look bad when the defenses start playing for real.

It's not a popular brand of football nowadays, but I like it. Decent run game, short immediate passes, then taking shots at opportune moments. Like chess. There's strategy, planning, setting up.

As opposed to today's video game approach.

In the long run, I think the Raiders, any team really, would be better off working towards the chess method... however, winning is he most important thing & if you're no good enough to play chess...

Default Re: Which rookie QB starts soonest?

I just watched that Oakland game a little while ago, and Schaub was terrible. He can't deal with any kind of pressure, and his arm looks weaker than ever. Raiders are probably going to lose a lot of games regardless though. I don't know what that defense will do...They have some potential.

But their offense looks bad. When Schaub gets a little pressure, the play is over.

The scoring drive they had was due to tons of penalties and a long screen by MJD.

I'd probably still start Schaub going into the season though because their oline isn't great and Carr still needs work. Don't want to put him into that fire. Just let Schaub take those lumps and at least he knows the NFL so maybe he can pull some rabbits out of his hat.

I'll put it this way: I still wish we'd traded back up to get Bridgewater, and I believe I lot of people will feel that way by season's end, because he will already be clearly better than anything we've got.

We can always get somebody next year...
