    Why wont anybody give Eric Crouch a chance at QB? I didnt watch him in NCAA, so I dont know the whole story. I just know he won the heisman.

    Thats basically it. He was in the same system Lord was in and he was just faster and a better runner, I remember one play, he was going to get sacked for a safety but he ran around the DE out of the End Zone and ran over 100 yards for a TD. Just like Lord is moving to FS people moved Crouch to WR and KR. He still wants to be a QB though he has no arm, if he focused on playing WR he might actually play once in a while.

    You run the ball like one of the top RBs in the country and complete a pass here and there.

    Crouch no matter what else he might be (or not be) is a genuine no-S**T stud athlete. I agree that his attitude was pretty lacking and there are obvious questions about committment.

    One thing I want to lay on the table in reference to Crouch (and Lord for that matter) is that sometimes I think the NFL values position specialization maybe a bit too much. Guys that are 'tweeners can make valuable contributions to rosters and be playmakers in their own right. Look at Kordell Stewart...not a great QB, WR, KR, or RB...but he could sure compete at all 4 of those positions. Stewart is too focused on being a QB to take advantage of his multi-role capability.

    this is harsh (winning a Heisman is no joke).... but the guy is a quitter. He almost quit early in his college career & has already quit the NFL twice. Where's the mental toughness?

    On a similar note... the Jets a a few years past had also drafted a QB (Nebraska i think) & tried converting him to safety... whatever happened?
