View Full Version : If Cutler falls....

03-17-2006, 05:45 PM
in the draft, should we still consider taking him?

03-17-2006, 05:45 PM

03-17-2006, 05:46 PM
Yes, but no way he falls all the way to us.

03-17-2006, 05:47 PM
no we cant draft qb in round 1 anymore

03-17-2006, 05:48 PM
he wont, nuff said

03-17-2006, 05:48 PM
Thats a tough question now that Culpepper is here. I mean you figure that Culpepper will be here for at least 6 years. So if Cutler is any good, you might have another San Diego situation. At some point they will need to draft a young QB to groom, but I believe they will probably wait until the 2007 draft to do it since they don't have many picks this year.

03-17-2006, 05:50 PM
If he does, Saban will get somebody to trade up with us to get him. Everybody will know the Vikings will take him right after us. Maybe we can even squeeze our 2nd rounder back out of Minnesota so they can take him.

03-17-2006, 05:52 PM
No. We cannot spend 3 draft picks on a QB this year.

03-17-2006, 05:53 PM
Why would we take a QB early? Gettin Pep has solved our QB problems for atleast 5 years.

03-17-2006, 05:55 PM
No. We cannot spend 3 draft picks on a QB this year.

Thats a good point with the Dolphins giving up a 6 rounder for Lemon last year. That is why I think they will wait until the 2007 draft to take one since they don't have many picks this year.

Right now we need another WR to help Chambers. Also we need OL, and Def secondary help.

We punched our QB ticket with Culpepper.

03-17-2006, 06:07 PM
Cutler is now considered a top 5 pick, and rated higher than Vince Young by many. No way he falls to #16, so it's not even worth discussing.

03-17-2006, 06:08 PM
One Word Culpepper

03-17-2006, 06:11 PM
I love Cutler. I'm one of his biggest fans and when a lot of people started talking about us getting him I got excited. But if he falls to 16, which he might, we won't take him. Consider this. If we do take him, we would be using a first (Cutler), second (Culpepper), and sixth (Lemon) round pick on QBs.

03-17-2006, 06:11 PM
I am still for Croyle if he is available in the thrid but blowing a first rounder for an unproven quarterback when we already have Daunte Freaking Culpepper is out of the question

03-17-2006, 06:17 PM
In the press conference announcing Culpepper. Nick did say that just because they have Daunte, it doesn't mean he still won't pick a qb in the draft. He said that if the best player available at the time is a qb then he would draft one.

03-17-2006, 07:03 PM
No. We cannot spend 3 draft picks on a QB this year.

agreed. We've already spent the 2nd and 6th rd picks on QB's.
I still can't believe they gave up a 6th rounder for Lemon.

03-17-2006, 07:09 PM
if reggie bush falls, do we take em?

03-17-2006, 07:12 PM
No way we take him, but he may be working his way back up and all but who will take him. Saints and Jets both were thought to be looking QB and that is not the case anymore. He could fall not that it matters unless someone wants to make us a deal at 16 if he is there...

03-17-2006, 07:13 PM

03-17-2006, 07:16 PM
yes we still might take him because we still need a QB of the future and someone has to start the first couple games. No because we don't have a 2nd round pick to fill holes. Besides we are very likely to trade down!

This belongs in the Draft forum

03-17-2006, 07:18 PM
Cutler is going to the Raiders. They have set themselves up for a QB. Cutler is a Raider type of QB. Whats funny is didnt Art Shell coach the last bust of a QB for the Raiders, Todd Marinovich? And the last QB isnt going past Arizona.

03-17-2006, 07:18 PM
If we are lucky enough that he falls to us, Saban will trade the pick.

He won't fall though.

03-17-2006, 07:20 PM
Hell yea.... you gotta take the best player available at that point. And I don't see Saban passing on a talent such as his. He could sit behind CP for awhile to learn, or be used as trade bait.

03-17-2006, 07:23 PM
I say we don't touch him because we really don't need him now that Pepp is here. I say we trade out of the #16 spot to accummulate more draft picks:cooldude:

03-17-2006, 07:23 PM
we lost three qbs (feeley, frerotte and sage...) so why not pick up three? I would be stoked to get cutler... but realistically i would rather cromartie at 16

03-17-2006, 07:24 PM
Nope HE will be a CArd or a Raider

03-17-2006, 07:26 PM
How about taking a WR in the first or a CB, and Omar Jacobs in the 3rd round if he is there.:eek:

03-17-2006, 07:39 PM
When you have as many other needs as we do, that would be a big mistake drafting him. We would probably end up trading down though.

03-17-2006, 07:42 PM
No we would not draft him! But if he really is still available by our pick, Saban would use to our advtange and possibly trade down with some teams who are interested in him.

03-17-2006, 07:44 PM
Absolutely not. I for one am excited to start a season with no quarterback controversy. Could anyone imagine the Culpepper vs Cutler debate.

03-17-2006, 07:45 PM
I'm pretty sure we'll end up either trading down or drafting defense in the first round. If a guy isn't there that we have a conviction on we'll try to find a trade partner to get back our 2. If one of the great wide recievers is sitting there we might just give Daunte one more weapon.

I don't see him falling past the Raiders or Cards, but if he did? Maybe draft and trade him? Dallas could be looking for a QB of the future, Bledsoe has maybe 1-2 years left. The Chiefs maybe? Trent Green is getting old.

Even the Vikes (at #17) might give up at least a third to get Cutler. If Saban gets a team to believe we might keep Cutler, or trade him for the best offer then we could get a second or third round pick out of it.

03-17-2006, 07:50 PM
can we drop Culter? I mean really. As fans we convinced ourselves that he was better than any other QB in the draft, now we have a real QB in Culpepper...

03-17-2006, 08:11 PM
No way we spend another pick on a QB, I cant see Saban starting a rookie or Lemon opening day if Daunte isnt ready to go.

03-17-2006, 10:19 PM
I agree with everyone else that it's a moot point; Cutler won't fall. But if he did, I'd drive Culpepper to the airport myself. On the right team, with good coaching, Jay Cutler will be that good. The Next Brett Favre? Quite possibly.

03-17-2006, 10:53 PM
I'd try and use our draft picks to better our team in other areas. Culpepper suits Miami fine for right now

03-18-2006, 05:25 PM
we don't need him anymore i say no

03-19-2006, 03:33 AM
If he does, Saban will get somebody to trade up with us to get him. Everybody will know the Vikings will take him right after us. Maybe we can even squeeze our 2nd rounder back out of Minnesota so they can take him.

Exactly. If we were blessed to have Cutler fall to us then the Vikes would have to give us their 51st or we trade to Denver (who have multiple 1st-day picks) and who could use a QB to groom. So does KC. OAK or ARI would be possibilities if they didn't take Vince Young or Leinart with their 1st rounders.

It won't happen (Cutler sliding to 16th) but Vince Young may based on him leaving college early and was so used to running a shotgun/option offense where he ran more than he passed. Maybe he would have passed more if Roy Williams or atleast some decent WR were on their team. His only threat through the air was TE David Thomas who is the epitome of a pass-catching TE who should go no later than the 5th IMO and my limited knowledge.

03-19-2006, 08:01 AM
IMO, of course you take him, let them battle it out in a couple of years time, Culpepper would also be good to learn off because they have similar arm strength and he can get a gauge on what he can and can't do in the NFL relative to the speed of DB's in the NFL compared to college.

03-19-2006, 09:29 AM
I can't see us drafting a QB with a valuable 1st rd. pick with all the other needs on the team. Especially after we just spent a 2nd on a starting probowl QB.

03-19-2006, 10:00 PM
If Cutler is there at 16 then some other team is going to want him. We'd be in a perfect position to move back and pick up a few extra picks. Same goes if Young falls, which is probably more likely.

03-20-2006, 02:29 PM
I f he falls, we trade down. Plenty of teams will want him, and we could capitalize on the situation and get more picks outta of it

03-20-2006, 04:56 PM
We are not going to take a QB in this years draft. The only way i see us taking a QB in the draft is maybe next year when Brady Quinn declares and he won't be available when we will pick.
