Is it me or is there anyone else not in love with any of the QB's coming out?

    I'm sorry guys I just can't see a fix for our QB problem in this draft.

    Brady Quinn to me looks overrated even if he was coached by Weis.

    Troy Smith is still MAYBE 6' tall and his mechanics are a bit sketchy though they can be fixed. He showed up in the 1st HALF of the michigan game and then disappeared.

    Jamarcus Russell is nice but no consistency which is what we already have in my opinion.

    Then there is Kolb whom I just am not blown away by even for a middle round pick.

    I want to have a QB that MOVES me. He after all is the LEADER of the team.

    Well the good news is the weak QB class should raise Carr's stock after the season when we trade him. I'd be happy with a 3rd or 4th rounder for Carr.

    I am not real thrilled with any of the QBs coming out. I tend to think Carr will still be here next year largely because of the relatively weak QB class this year, I don't see us forcing a pick and drafting a QB higher than he deserves just for the sake of getting one and moving David Carr.

    I'm not really excited by any of the QB's if we were gonig to expect them to play next year.

    I do however think that Russell, Bohm, and Colt B. will all be very good QB's if allowed to sit a year or two.

    This year's class is no where near the '06 class. Brady Quinn is the no.1 prospect at that position but there are question regarding him. He's played behind a shaky o-line and has been beaten up a lot. He's a good player but I don't see him better than Matt Leinart, VY or even Jay Cutler. I don't see the Texans drafting a qb with their no.1 pick but they may pick up someone later in the draft. I think the Texans will go the FA route with the qb situation and bring in some real competition at the position.

    2008 & 2009 will be very elite QB class. I think it will serve us best to wait year or two to draft QB. In the mean time let Sage play next year and go into camp with open competition.

    Brady Quinn reminds me of Carr.

    I would love to draft Quinn or Russell, but i have feeling we wont go qb in the first...i wouldnt be surprised if we take a Drew Stanton in the 3rd....

    kolb, russell, or smith

    those are the QB's i like and would be happy with
    unless we get a QB this offseason

    maybe we can wait for colt mccoy, or that big QB from kansas state

    but also willie tuitama looks good at times, but is in consistent

    I wouldn't mind drafting Colt Brennan or Kevin Kolb. I'm not a big fan of Jamarcus Russell since he's inconsistent. I like Troy Smith, but I don't think he'll be around when it's our turn to pick in the 2nd.

    VY guys got kinda quite this week huh ? I'm with ya. I think the QB banter is like the Ko Simpson Banter of last year. There are thirty or so guys on the board...all but three of them aren't named Kolb, Smith and Russel. You know what the look was on Kubes face was Sunday...that's the look of a guy who saw the last straw being broken. So ...We're going to take one. Worst case scenario...we send picks to someone for a QB. Best scenario, Kubes finds someone in the pile he likes a lot and drafts the guy in the fourth. The big desision will be wether they can work out a deal with DC or not. I think Carr is ready to move on too. So they'll bring in a free angent (read cheap) QB. The QB talk IMHO, is being driven by DC hate. Just don't set yourselves up for some heartbreak. Nobody saw Owen Daniels coming either. I don't know and I ain't in the loop. Just think if we are going for a qb or a banging running back with the great Dayne already on board....no OLT prospect...whoever they bring in will be doing a little more than holding the clip boad befor the end of the season in '07. I've only seen Russell, outside of highlight clips, once this season. So I won't bang on him. Hope he doesn't dodge the combine if we're spending a one on him. Just saying. Remember, DC had a heck of a workout five years ago also.

    I think Brohm and Russell are the best of those prospects but they have knocks as well. Brohm seems to be injury prone and Russell isn't that consistent.

    I would take Brohm over Russell, but I don't think Brohm will declare this year. I think he's kind of like Brady Quinn was last season. Quinn could have declared and would have probably been a top 10-15 pick. Brohm would be as well, but if he stays and enters the draft next year he'll be a top 5 pick.

    despite Troy Smiths measureables I love this guys leadership ability & heart. The only way you can measure it is by big game perfomances and championships. remember last year this time we were having the discussion if Vince Young was a QB or a WR, even McClain said late in the season NFL scouts were split, by the time he declared for the draft after the Rose Bowl he was still not considered a top 10 pick, then leading up to the last weeks before the draft Tennesse was rumored to be very impressed with his private workouts and as they say the rest is history.

    my point is only this- alot can change by draft time, we'll learn alot more about these prospects over the next 4 months before the actual draft, but there is one thing I'm sold on and thats a guy who can put a team on his shoulders & carry them to a Championship. If the Texans pass on another one of these ultra competitive types then they are indeed a sorry lot :stirpot:

    if i was going to take a project i'd take the guy out of Univ. of Washington.

    6'2 215 and runs a 4.5 but that's just IF we want a project on his hand.
