Default Who's your quarterback - 2015 v2.0

The worst part about this season is that we are no closer to solving the long term riddle of who is this teams quarterback going forward.

Fitz should have been no more than a placeholder.

Mallett had a chance to be that guy (and still does) but we didn't see enough of him to make a decision & he didn't perform well enough to put his stamp on the position when he was afforded the opportunity.


Savage was .... like a deer in headlights. Wont go so far as to say he cant be the guy but at best . he's still a year or more away from being a capable backup much less starter material.


With Fitz they won too many games to get an early pick to get a top talent and didn't develop a QB .... and Clowney was a total bust due to injury. This team is probably in worse shape now than last year this time when they had the #1 overall as the top QB prospects will likely be gone by the time they get around to drafting a player or they will have to make a significant more up in the draft to target one of those players.

Who you got under center in 2015 ?!

Default Re: Who's your quarterback - 2015 v2.0

You don't have to be up that early in the draft to take a decent QB. And even if we did, I wouldn't touch Jamies Winston or Marcus Mariota with ten foot poles.

I think it will be a head to head comp between Mallet and Savage.

And speaking of Savage, yeah he was an unprepared deer-in-the-headlights yesterday.

So what?

Does that mean you think he will always be like that? I saw a lot of positives in his play, considering everything. Especially his ability to pinpoint a long throw. Reps and playing time make big difference.

Right now, if there was an accuracy competition between Mallet and Savage, my money is on Savage.

Default Re: Who's your quarterback - 2015 v2.0

I don't like the idea of drafting Winston either (Mariota is a different story).... but we cant go another year with a revolving door at the QB spot or the franchise is just stuck in the mud spinning its wheels.

Mariota likely goes in the top 3 , Winston I dunno where his character issues drop him to .... but he may be gone as well.

What about Hundley or one of the other prospects ?!

Who's on the FA scrap heap that might be better than Fitz ?!

Default Re: Who's your quarterback - 2015 v2.0

For me it's mallet.

I was highly skeptical about him, and was not happy at all when we brought him in.

But I have to admit he is the best QB we've seen on the field in some time now. Or at least it looked the best to me.

If they want to keep savage is fine with me, as developmental QB.

If I'm Rick Smith's inevitable replacement, I draft one of Mariota, Winston or Cook, no matter what it takes to land one of those guys.

Default Re: Who's your quarterback - 2015 v2.0

This season it was a clean sweep of the QBs from the previous year, I don't think that will be the case for next season. Unless we draft someone, we already know at least one name (Savage) who will be on the roster next year. And I'm betting that one of the two (Fitz or Mallet) will be on the roster as well.

Hopefully we draft a good QB.

Default Re: Who's your quarterback - 2015 v2.0

I'd be all in for Mariota. He'll either bust this organization for a few years. Or be the actual franchise QB we've never had.

You have to take that chance, right? Otherwise, we'll never keep up with the Lucks

It was a limited sample, but I liked what I saw from Mallett.

I think he could be the starter next year.
