Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?! - [edit] Mallett?

I dont expect Keenum to make the final roster cut. He's back up quality on his best of days. I look for O'Brien to sever any cat calling from the stands/media and end that experiment.

Not much about Mallett lately but I doubt very much that O'Brien has forgot about him as one of the possible options for the Texans as their long-term plan at QB.

Yeah , because the audibles were built into each play. We've been thru this a dozen times or more.

Each play had many adjustments , even from pass to run and run to pass, you didn't change the entire play , you just made the proper adjustment based upon what the defense showed you.

QB cant audible is a complete and total myth .... started by Kubiak himself because he fell on the sword for his quarterback when he made poor decisions.


How many times does this have to be explained before people get it ?!

I get it, which is why I put "audible" into quotes, I understand how Kubiak did it, however Flacco is has been calling his own plays for a few years now and changes plays on the fly all the time. Not going into the play with only this option and that option...

When you have 2 controlling egos, can't say that is gonna mesh well...

Well, outside of the play offs, Flacco has sucked calling his own plays. If he wants to get to the play offs again, without Ray Lewis leading his defense, he'd do well to listen to Kubiak & start leading his team to victory.

This is inconsistent with a whole lot of reporting on their changes in OC over the last few years. Can you point to an article on Flacco's total control?

I'll do some digging. It was an article a year or so back about QBs in the NFL that call their own plays at the line. It had Rodgers, Rothlisberger, Manning, Brady and Flacco.

It basically said that these QBs would call their own plays at the line and the OC would make suggestions in their headset to what play would be more successful, run or pass and such but that these QBs controlled the tempo and plays on the field...

I remember being a little shocked that Flacco was among that group

Well a big story in their 2012 SB season was changing OCs mid season - Jim Caldwell and Cam Cameron. There was lots of talk about the changes in playcalling.

I wouldn't be surprised if we managed to trade our 1st for an extra 2nd & trade it to New England for their 2nd & Mallet.

So they are going to trade Mallet just to move up a few spots in the 2nd round?

Mallet is a free agent next year. Something is better than nothing.

I would rather trade a swap of picks for Mallet than draft McCarron/Mettenberger at 2.1

Yeah, you're right. Why would someone prefer Mallett over a couple of untested rookies?
