    Kevin Kolb threw 35 less passes than Brady Quinn last year but had 380 more yards.. know why? Because KOLB DOESN'T SUCK.

    KEVIN KOLB-HOUSTON TEXAN

    That must be why Kolb is expected to go in the third round.

    Let me try. Kolb has been playing in the same offensive scheme for 7 years now.

    Of course, Kolb did play in Conference USA while Quinn did play against harder competition...

    i like kolb but in all honesty while brady quinn never beat the top teams he still did good in those games and never gave up.

    kolb never even played an elite team the closest thing he played to an elite team was the very mediocre miami this year and they still lost.

    so if you wanna tout kolb go ahead i hope he turns out great but dont put down quinn when alot of the same can be said about kolb.

    with the offense they run at UH, it would be expected of kolb to throw for more yards on less passes.

    Not to mention that Vincent Marshall is more of a playmaker than any of the receivers Quinn had to throw to.

    well Quinn did have to put up like 45 points a game because of his sucky defense but I still prefer Kolb to groom.

    Yep, Kolb played against powerhouses like SMU, Memphis and Central Florida. Notre Dame's schedule was full of a bunch of chumps that counld't hang their jocks in a CUSA lockeroom...

    Personally I think Quinn is the #1 QB in this years draft.

    But I'd rather go a different need in the 1st that is a "more sure thing" and take a QB like stanton or Kolb in the 3rd if they are there to groom for a season or two. I like kolb but quinn is hands down better.

    I would still want him drafted. Then again if he did not go to UH I would not have seen any of his games and would not know as much about him.

    It is funny how when VY came out and there was a lot of speculation on if what he did in college would translate to the pros, so many said draft him he is a hometown hero and that is why they shoud draft him. Now you do not want a guy because he played for UH and not the beloved TU. Just freaking commical. :stirpot:

    He can make a heck of a lot more money in baseball and he likes baseball more. Smardjia would have been drafted after CJ, Meachem, Jarrett, ginn, and probably bowe and rice...so that puts him mid 2nd rd.

    I don't want him specifically because there is more than just a trend with U of H QBs running spreads and bombing at the next level. And his game doesn't fit. Just like last year...VY throws the ball like someone is squeezing his privates when he releases. Vincent wasn't a good fit last year and niether is Kolb this year.
