    Here we go now kids. Weigert and Payne. Gone. Stanley......Gone. Carr......another year. Winston....moves to guard. Spencer.....a big if. We'll probably pick up a FA tackle and if we keep the 8th pick, we draft AP if available and Levi Brown if not. Kubiak found a new son in Kolb and will draft in 2nd round if still there. Especially if we trade down for more picks. Davis/Williams......only training camp will tell. Lundy.....gone. Taylor will stick around and Dayne resigned. Gado......bye-bye-o.

    And I am still a genius!!!!!!:yahoo:

    Your genius claims collapsed in a heap when you pondered whether Kolb was still there at #8 in round 2.

    Yes he will be there then, and probably for a round or so after that too.

    I really doubt we take Kolb in the 2nd. If we do I will bow to your genius though.

    I am guessing if you play NCAA football in Houston or Texas that makes you great?

    My guy throw a 8 yard come back and throw it in the ground, I am sure he will be around for a while in this draft. He did the same thing in the senior bowl. God love him because I went to UofH, but come on, NOT a 2nd rd guy.

    No lower than a 3rd, which is about where he was projected.. And yes, he has made some bad throws, but who hasn't??

    I could see Kolb as going as high as the top of rd 2 to as low as mid 3rd. He is a good QB who needs time to develop, but I would be excited about Kolb in a Texans uni.

    Don't know if anyone remembers the cartoon Pinky & The Brain (it was great don't know why it got canceled) from a few years back. But Casserly reminds me of The Brain and Dom Capers was his Pinky. All of Brains plans for world domination would come crashing down on him.

    I agree with you although, that high at the top of the second round might be just a tad too high, because of the small school and "product of the system" wrap (which I disagree with).

    I think his career is over.

    As opposed to throwing two passes beyond the line of scrimmage in one game? Or how about a 3 yard pass when 4 is needed for a first down? Can we get a run out of bounds for a sack instead of throwing the ball away?

    Oh, all examples of a professional QB, btw. :ok: 1st overall draft pick, too!

    He doesn't like it when someone mentions that.

    Actually, I read in the Chronicle today and Kub was gushing about how much he liked Kolb. I conceed I may be stretching it a bit that he'd go 2nd round. If we trade down for extra picks, I'd wouldn't be surprised to see him taken in that round with a lower 2nd round pick. That's what I meant.......I think......no, I'm sure of it.

    And........still a genius! :tease: :tease: :tease:

    Do you have a link to the gushing??

    All the talk is that Kolb's skill set doesn't fit the offense that Kubiak runs.

    Did anybody actually see Kubiak at the combine? Only person I saw was Mike Sherman. I heard about NFL Network having coverage of his interview, but I guess I missed it.

    He will be available in the 3rd. I don't think it's smart to waste our only 2nd Rd. pick on him, since he had a very "average" combine by most observers. I'm all about picking up the guy in the 3rd though. And yes, whomever mentioned Kubiak being high on Kolb is correct. It's easy to see why a lot of teams like the guy, he's a true team player.

    hmm... I'd be surprised if Lundy is gone. He performed well in the preseason, and as well if not better than Gado in the game. He's shown that he can get down the field if our line blocks and open holes for him. He may very well have a break out season next year, considering we should have a better idea of who our starters should be when we start Training Camp.

    NOw don't nobody get their panties in a bunch, I'm not saying Lundy is the answer to anything, just saying I don't see him not being on the team this season.

    2 times in over Thousands of snaps, thats it,O my gosh did he really do that, lets take him out in the back and shoot him, my Lord Not that! 3yard pass when we need 4, when was that? Were else should he have thrown the ball, on YOUR play you talk about.

    Tell your boy Kolb to get his throws up if he wants to make it in this league, O I forgot too, how many balls were behind the wide outs in the combine on the deep out, I counted more then a couple.
