View Full Version : Matt Barkley

01-22-2013, 08:28 AM
I know a lot of people on this site wanted us to have a terrible record so that we could take Matt Barkley in the top 5. Now it looks like he will be there at 12. DO you still want him at 12?

With RT in the fold, and holes to fill, why would we want him at 12?
Would anybody endorse picking him at 12? Yeesh.

Anyway, as Joey in Friends once said: "It is a moo point. You know, like a cow's opinion. It just doesn't count"

For the record, I like Tannehill a lot and do not want Barkley because I thought he was overrated. Just wondering if anyone thinks he is a great value at 12 because they wanted him at the first pick during this season.

If we didn't have RT, them yes, I would give him a shot at 12. However, I doubt he would make it past the Jets at 9.

I think there probably were one or two people that said they'd draft Matt Barkley even with Ryan Tannehill in the fold...hell you can get one or two people to say just about anything on this site...but otherwise the idea that there was a mass of people that wanted this, is a myth.

IDK. Ask the people in these threads and watch them backtrack.

RT has done a TREMENDOUS job of spreading the ball to arguably the WORST crop of pass catchers (including slightly above average TEs) in the league, and we barely missed the playoffs (would have made them if it wasnŽt for Carpenter)...now, some suggest wasting #12 on another signal caller, when, due to the amount of holes and lack of depth we have, there are 8 other roads we can take, including possiblly picking the 1st WR or TE off the board...I would seriously put a dog mask on, and cheer @ the dog pound for the Cleveland Browns if this happened!!

matter of fact, IŽd sport a cat mask instead, so they can whoop my *****-a$$ every game as a reminder of MiamiŽs pick...

i won't back track...there was no doubt tannehill had more upside than matt barkley but matt barkley put out the best qb tape last season...it was rediculous how good that tape was...

anyways if i'm a team needing a qb in this draft with a top pick i'd pluck matt barkley without hesitation...intangibles are off the charts with that kid...and he's got pretty good feet in the pocket...barkley in the 2nd round stuff is rediculous
