I hate to stand up for Polian but he put together an excellent Bills team and put together another excellent team in Indy.

Interesting idea. I would think if Kubiak had anything to do with a trade he would take Yates before Keenum. But if the others talking about BOB's like for bigger QBs, they Keenum would be the trade bait and I don't think Kubiak wants Keenum.

We hear about "QB battles" in NFL camps all the time that are absolute B.S. This will be one of those instances where it won't be. There will be a legit battle at that spot and the QB position will be the position everyone will keep there eyes on during camp.

Why? He had Keenum jump him and then went back to Schaub. Yates was a non-entity last season.

It's just a feeling of mine. I just don't think Kubiak liked Keenum as being ready and was pressured into starting him.

Lucky's point was he will get a roster spot, not the starting gig.

All I see is a fork sticking squarely out of Keenum. No offense to the cult of personality.

No it doesn't, but guess what does... Building a team that reached the SB 4 straight times and winning one with another franchise.

I'm not putting my faith in Savage "because Polian likes him", but rather scoffing at those who are writing off what Polian has accomplished as a G.M.

He accomplished a LOT more then just calling the right side of a coin.

Well yeah, if that's his point then I agree.. that's a no brainer. He'll have to have naked pictures with O'Brien's wife to not net a spot on the team.

I don't, simply because he's cheaper and already beat out Yates (he's better than Yates). Yates is walking the green mile right now.

Watching some Savage cut-ups on draftbreakdown.com.

Guy does have a cannon.
Seems to have good ball placement.
Steps up in the pocket.
Keeps his eyes up field.


May need to learn to take a bit off.
Doesn't look to be going through progressions.


Not entirely a statue, Pitt seemed to roll him out and move the pocket a fair bit. He will try and run if there is space.

Rounding out to be a really good draft.
If we had a fifth, we probably would have waited.

Anyway, here's a feel good piece on the kid.

Nobody has done anything since the new staff got here.

If he beats out Yates this year then I'll agree.

IMHO, Yates suffered the misfortune of following up Schaub's pick-6 run by throwing one of his own. McNair then pressured Kubes into playing Keenum.

Yates has proved more on the field that Keenum has. See: Playoff win.

Love this pick!!!!!

Quote:
"I think this is a great fit for the Texans. He's got a hose. His arm is any bit as good as Logan Thomas' or Zach Mettenberger's. He took a beating at Pitt, but he continued to stand in the pocket. He's a natural thrower of the football. He's got all the mechanics, so now it's all about developing the kid's ability." -- Mike Mayock
Tough SOB, for those who don't know........

Quote:
Savage also injured his ribs against the Orange, but he returned against Miami the next week and threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to the Hurricanes. Savage also had a head injury earlier in the season, but didn't miss any games. That rib injury apparently was susceptible to further damage, because a hit there during the bowl game fractured his ribs and bruised a kidney. He had some internal bleeding as well, so a long rest was needed.

That meant Savage had to decline an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game. He also had to miss the Senior Bowl, as he was to be an alternate. Savage took a couple weeks off before training for the NFL Combine, and it paid off. He reportedly was solid during on-field drills, displaying accuracy and a strong arm.

And we all know how he did in his Pro Day.

Guys, you seem to be forgetting the best way to assess a QB.

How hot was his GF?
