    TROY SMITH FOR QB - '07
    [​IMG]

    Okay now I've been a fan of David Carr and I've stood behind him no matter what's going on.. when the NFL sack record was put on him I blamed everything around him. When passes were being under and over thrown I blamed his O-line and pass trajectery. Of Course the dropped passes are
    not his fault. When people were calling for Carr's head, you can check the post I was the one that said.. hey Give Carr and this offense a chance.. he's got Kubiak now things are gonna be much better.

    Now I've seen what he can, no lemme rephrase that I've seen what he "CANT" do in this offense and it's actually kinda disturbing to me. When he sees the blitz coming he tends to give up on the play and take the sack. I'm sorry that's not something that I can vouche for. I've ignored it for the past 5 years but now it's getting ridcioulous. I hate losing and I hate that we have so much young talent and he's going to waste cause of poor QB decisions. I'm not saying that David Carr does not deserve to play in this league I just think that there is a possiblity that DC is damaged goods and may need to move to a different team and city in order to resurrect his career. Wherever he goes he will always have a place in my football heart.

    I believe that it's time to bring in some new blood.. a new face of the franchise. Somebody that doesn't have to be FIXED like David Carr has to be. Someone with a fresh and clean mind. I personally think Troy Smith is my #1 pick for this job. Whether it would be draft him and let him sit behind Carr for a year. Or Trade Carr and let him sit behind Rosenfels for a year whatever the case maybe something needs to happen in order to put this franchise back in the right direction.

    I know that Kubiak has a lot of crap to clean up from the whole Capers/Casserly era but you have to start from the top. Why not start with a fresh face who has ALL the tools and potential to be one the best in the NFL. Troy Smith has the scrambling ability to escape the pressure in the pocket (which helps alot wit the porous o-line we have), throws VERY well on the run (Which is great for Kubiak's system), and he's an accurate passer (which is great for any system or team). Personally I have Troy Smith rated higher than Vince Young in the young QB faceoff.

    I know people say college stats means absolutely nothing when it comes to translating to the pros however you can not deny what he has done for the QB position. No he's not as fast as Vince Young and no he is not as big as Young but he is a more accurate passer and in my opinion a better decision maker. (Young 26Tds / 10Ints) (Smith 30Tds / 5Ints and that's just so far). When you see the games there's without a doubt who the leader is of this high powered offense. You can see it in his eyes and he plays with a passion.

    He's a QB first then a scrambler as a last resort, he's had absoluletly no durability issues in his career, he's been nothing but productive.. he also has the tools and potential to change a game on the ground or through the air. Personally I haven't seen a guy throw the long bomb so well in a long time. AJ would finally be put to good use. And Also this guy leads the reciever well and puts the in a position where they can make something happen wit the ball.. Imagine AJ getting the ball in open space with a defender 4 yards behind him and one man to beat or better let put Mathis in that position. What is not to like about this guy. Majority of people believe that we need a better QB well he's staring you right in ths face. So this is my plea to Mr. McNair and the FO please DRAFT TROY SMITH!

    Troy Smith is on a team full of studs, he is not one of them, just another Akili Smith in the making, draft this guy, and it will set us back another 5 yrs.

    Its not fair that you come out and say that just because somebody has talent around him that he's gonna be (insert name)..

    if that's the case, put Carson Palmer on that list he was loaded with talent at USC and he's doing a great job at Cincy. Aaron Brooks had Joe Horn and Duece McCallister but still did nothing in NO, Griese had talent around him and did nothing at Denver. Put Young on that list he had Sweed, Benson, Charles and Roy Williams so does that mean he's gonna be nothing..??

    Forget the talent around him.. the guys puts it where only the reciever can get it.. he throws very well on the run and can escape pressure. He also doesnt make many mental mistakes.

    Now that is scary! I'm on the QB with any pick besides our 1st or 2nd bandwagon.

    Thats a big no to the Troy Smith Texans pick. I want defensive players, and offensive linemen.

    That makes too of us. I was very happy with the win over the Colts. But, it came at a high price. Joe Thomas is definatly gone. I'm braced for the Big TD, or LeRon. won't it be funny..... if ....after all the banter over All Day...he falls to the eighth pick...and keeps falling after Kubes & Smith says no way to that injury history. Don't think the smurf QB is in their plans either but I've never picked a first round correct yet. Keep Hope Alive !!!
