You beat RGIII the same way you beat Vick, the beat down. They barely can finish a season let alone take teams to Super Bowls.

That's why I don't want a Teddy Bear in here.
Teddy B is not an RGIII type of player. He's not a runner.

Not you.....but you're very good at taking comments out of context.
Yeah man, you totally knocked that prediction out of the park...well you, ESPN, and anyone else that has watched ANY football at all this year. Don't sprain your elbow patting yourself on the back for that one.

Exactly. Bridgewater is a pass first QB. Only runs when he has to.

Same was said about RG3 before he was started in Washington. Same was said about Wilson before his OL fell apart. Same was said about Keenum... well, it's still said about Keenum because when he needed something different... he had nothing.

If it was said about RGIII, it was wrong, as he ran for over 2,200 yards and 33 TD's while at Baylor. Bridgewater on the otherhand has run for 170 yards and 6 TD's in what is essentially the same amount of time at Louisville.

As far as Wilson goes, I'm not sure at exactly what point you consider the OL to have fallen apart, but he had 96 rushing attempts in 2013 and 94 rushing attempts in 2012, so whatever was true before, it appears to have also been true after.

Completely different. Griffin ran the ball 501 times in his 3 healthy years at Baylor (167 per year). Wilson ran the ball 441 times in 4 years at NC State/Wisconsin (110 per year). Bridgewater has run 226 times in 3 years at Louisville (75 per year). Bridgewater and Wilson ran only when they had to. Griffin ran after he got through a certain amount of reads.

Bridgewater and Wilson are both athletic, but they rely on their arm to move the ball. Just because they can scramble doesn't change that. Griffin relies on his legs just as much as his arm. Look at how poorly he played this year with limited mobility. Forced passes he shouldn't have thrown because he's used to being able to scramble when nothing is there.

That's good to know, man.

I have tons of tape to watch this offseason so I can have a clue on what I want in this draft.

Who would honestly want to go to the Browns and be a head coach? Years of below average football, and now after one year the head coach is fired. Didn't even keep his job for a full 365 days. Says a lot about the front office.

^This.

RG3 was at the top nationally in 100, 300, 400 hurdles and one of the fastest long speed guys on the field until his injury.

The hate for Teddy Bridgewater is unfounded considering we don't need book end tackles or bad character guys at #1.

Not to mention the owner's impending federal indictment. Yeah, the Browns are a mess.

I'd take the top OT ahead of Bridgewater in a heart beat, but that's just me I reckon

I don't hate him. I got not one ounce of hate for the man. I'll get behind him if we draft him 1-1 and hope every day that I was wrong in thinking that he was not the way to go.

Every year I get behind players the Texans take that I wasn't fired up about and this case is no different. I just don't think he's going to be the kind of success at this level that we are hoping for or that his fans are predicting. I'm not worried though. By the time the draft gets here a lot can happen.

It ain't just you HOU-TEX.
