Could easily be a smokescreen but if there is truth in this it is huge for the Texans as it significantly increases the chances of AD falling to #8.
I am wondering the same thing to increase some potential trade up partners.
I wouldn't put too much faith in it. If they really wanted to have a franchise QB then they should just keep quiet. They don't know who will be available. If JR is chosen and they are forced to take Quinn ..it not be the right go...If Quinn is already gone but JR is there....maybe he might not be the right guy.
If both Quinn and JR are chosen 1 and 2...do they take Stanton with the 1st pick? no...they gotta wait till draft day...and hope a qb they want falls to them.
Ah yes... Mike Phipps with 24 wins in 4 14 game seasons ( 72-75 ).
He did make a playoff game in his first year as a full starter too.
i still think they're gonna draft AP.
First of all its SMOKESCREEN time. If they were truly ordered too this does NOT leak out almost a month and half before the draft.
Do you realize the leverage they could be giving up with Tampa Bay?
If TB even gets scared for a second that CJ could be gotten in a trade up by someone else TB could be ante up just to move up ONE slot but not if they KNOW Cle is going to go QB.
This is just MORE nonsense pre-draft.
actually it's detroit that gets big-time leverage here.
Obviously this poster means AP! Why do some call him AD??
the initial rumor is that the owner has ordered savage to draft a QB with the first pick.
and so it appears that QB is jamarcus russell. but, it looks like daniel snyders likes russell, too. could be interesting.
so apparently lerner PUBLICLY said he wants russell. smokescreen? or really dumb?
AD- "All Day", Peterson's personal nickname.
I posted that article in the draft board almost a week ago.
I'd love for Cleveland to take a QB. First, Oakland needs to go w/ Calvin though.
That is when Rick Smith gets on the phone and says, hey we have this guy named David Carr.
And that's when a chorus of laughter erupts.
Any Reason Oakland shouldn't take Joe Thomas??
The only reason i can come up with is the Robert Gallery experiment by Al Davis. A Surefire T from a big 10 school might make him weary? I dunno...they need the help terribly though.
From Peter King's MMQB:
I guess the Browns owner has taken lessons from Jerry Jones, another owner who thinks he knows football. The difference is the Cowboys have a great owner who will spend what is needed to win - but their GM is a moron.
Its a good idea to pick up a franchise QB in the 1st rd, but this year the only good QBs are JR and BQ, and neither has proven that they can win the big game in college, so what makes you think that they can do it in the NFL. Some things just don't make a lot of sense like picking up a franchise QB who sucks (No Carr jokes intended).
