I think he was the best dressed of all of them. Suit, with no tie (I don't know if he had the tie on during the interview though).

Johnny at least had a polo.

McCarron & Bortles, I thought, way too casual.

I know they're football players, but they're QBs..... quasi~management. I like the professional look.

We aren't interested in him.

In his pro day and his private workouts so far he has shown nothing.

His game tape was average to begin with.

He may be this years Geno Smith ...

Are you comparing their playing styles or are you just saying that he's going to fall out of the 1st round a la Smith?

Say..... all you guys who don't want to draft Bridgewater with a top five pick (this includes myself).


If he were to go on to become a franchise QB & the guy you'd rather have, with a lower pick... not you guys who want Manziel or Bortles with a top 5 pick.. doesn't.

Say if you're a Garopollo guy, or a Murray, or whoever it is you want to take outside of the 1st round, let's say he turns into a Henne or Fitzpatrick, or a Whitehurst; good, but not good enough to be a starter.

How would you feel if Bridgewater goes on to become a franchise guy & Garoppolo/Murray/Savage becomes a journeyman back up?

Hey. Nobody's perfect.

But seriously, OF the QBs, I expect Bridgewater to end up as a mid-level starter... stats-wise. He's the kind of guy that can direct your team and manage the game. In the right situation, he can probably win some Super Bowls but he's probably NOT going to get in that right situation.

I expect Bortles to have a Boller type of career. I expect him to get the opportunity but just not convert it into something great.

For the guys in the later rounds, I expect even less... but I'm going to hope for more because that's who I expect us to draft this season.

If a QB comes out of this draft and turns into a great QB, I'll admit I was wrong... probably. I'm still not close to admitting that Flacco or Eli are particularly good QBs.

I think a QB from this draft will have a great career. But I won't pretend to believe I know which guy that will be. I think McCarron & Murray are most likely. I think they've got all the intangibles, the pedigree, & have shown the consistency on the biggest stages.

But Manziel's got star power. If he can continue what he's done in the NCAA, he's going to be something else, but he's going to need the right support system (coaches, defense, etc...) & for him, that system is more narrowly defined.

I like Bridgewater, but I don't see the big time ego, the arrogance you see in a Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, John Elway, or even the Jim Kelly, Donavan McNabbs, & Phillip Rivers.

I see the tools with Bortles, but two years.... who knows what year three is going to look like. Same with Savage, except he's only got one year.. but I really like the way he zings it outside the hash marks.

If it ends up being Bridgewater, it's going to hurt worse. "Everybody" is telling us it's going to be him. If the Texans pick him, I can live with it, but if another team gets him & our guy is out of the league in 6 years or so, I'll admit I was wrong, but like I said, it will really hurt.

Of those considered to be the top three, I think he has the potential to fall the most.

Has shown nothing since college. Is it the pressure? Is he just over-rated?

We will see, I think it is the later. Never thought he was what everyone was saying.

Watch his games and you can shoot all kinds of holes in his perceived talent.

Shown nothing since College?

Do you mean since they stopped playing actual Football?

When they stopped playing actual football he was almost universally considered the top QB in the draft.

I'm guessing he means when TB stopped playing AAC College Football and started his interview process for Professional Football.

He wouldn't be the first player to free-fall after looking pretty pedestrian at his combine/ pro-day / private workouts.

Mind you, I'd be tickled pink if he fell to pick 33.
