So there you go, at least you can say I have some objectivity and clearly not Smitten with Teddy Club. Don't forget my defense of McCarron too.

I love it when people make things up. I am CLEARLY smitten with Teddy Bridgewater, but not one quote can be provided to support this pie out of the sky statement.

I don't know what kind of education you have. I do know how you express your self. It is often said that those who have to resort to insults, name calling and cuss words often do so only because they don't know how to express themselves in any other way.

I've worked with some Ivy League graduates who do everything you just listed. I need to send them an e-mail advising them to get a refund on their money paid to their institutions.

And I'm sorry the word "ass" is so offensive to you. In the future I will use the word butt to not offend the oh so sensitive Texian.

I actually started the season back in August favoring David Fales. Murphy? Oh Trent Murphy. YES. I had watched a game were Murphy did his best JJ Watt impersonation and was all gaga the next next day or so before coming to my senses.

Murphy with Rac isn't so strange in the 2nd .

I agree on some level that Bortles has the highest upside based on size. But I think all three have high upsides (franchise qb). At some point, if Bridgewater can be the next Rodgers, Bortles the next Big Ben, and Manziel Steve young in Drew Bree's body, your kind of splitting hAirs. Two of the top 5 qbs in the league are small. Brees and Rodgers aren't big guys, yet they arguably as good as any of them.

Rodgers is like 6'3. He is more than capable size wise. Either way him and Brees are two of the best of all time already. I could see Bortles becoming as good as Big Ben. I don't see Manziel or Bridgewater being anywhere near close to as good as Rodgers or Brees though. Of course Brees and Rodgers are both way ahead of Big Ben to though. I'd take a Big Ben retread though.

He's 6'2". Somehow inside the draft forum anything under 6'5" has become short.

I think tall is important if you can't move .

I don't disagree when you get into the realm of 3+ inches of difference. Below that it is swamped by other factors. Thinking 6'4" is a significant advantage over 6'3" is silly IMO.

I think the best scramblers are shorter because they move quicker than the taller DL . Yes there are exceptions but a pocket presence at 6'2 is much better than a statue at 6'5 .

I think my point is that saying Bortles ceiling is so much higher because of size, can be countered by how exceptional Brees and Rodgers are, secondly no one thought Brees and Rodgers would be as good as Brees and Rodgers before they were drafted either.

there is this misconception that Rodgers is short. He's not. Contrary to popular belief is closer to average height for an NFL QB.
