    Ireland did pretty good last year. Thomas was disappointing but he got good players in good spots. grabbing Moore in free agency turned out great, let's hope he can do the same with a QB in the draft

    Agree that Weeden will go 3rd round or later. His age is a huge problem that nothing can erase.

    I think the hot name QB will be Tannehill. Could see him moving up to the first round with a solid combine.

    Osweiler just declared today. I'm sure that hurts Weeden.

    Teams will take a raw QB with huge upside over a 29 year old QB almost everytime.

    Weeden could be. And the Jets are more likely to gamble and take a risk on a QB home run than we are. They did it with Mark Sanchez. Dolphins are drafting scared.
    Well, Hartline ended up being a pretty good player for a 4th rounder, so its hard to call that a dumb decision. Solid player that can start if need be...cant expect much more from those rounds.

    Pat White though...good God.

    You know, I never even thought about it this way before. I always call Brandon Weeden The Natural or Roy Hobbs. That's because of the way he plays football.

    But I was just thinking that it applies in another way. This is a guy that gets drafted in the 2nd round of the MLB Draft out of high school, makes a million or two as a baseball player. Then he decides to walk-on at a prestigious BCS program as a football player, and eventually he's starting, setting every record there is at the school, competing for a championship, etc. He'll make millions in football.

    And I've never thought much about it but this year he also successfully made Oklahoma State's golf team as a walk-on. I just looked it up, and Oklahoma State's 12 man golf team is ranked 2nd in the country. And he just walked on, just cuz he kind of likes it. He's got a 2 or 3 handicap when he gets things going.

    This is one of those annoying guys that can have never played foosball a day in his life, you teach him how to play, and a week later he's winning thousand dollar foosball tourneys. Some day we're going to be watching him throwing touchdown passes for an NFL team and a lot of people are going to be asking themselves, how did we manage to overthink it on a guy THIS good?

    You know as well as I do that his age eliminates him from Jeff Ireland's prototype, so we'll pass on another elite level QB.

    Sam Bradford is also a single digit handicap if I'm not mistaken.

    Tony Romo is pretty much a scratch golfer. Tom Brady, Brees, Elway, Favre, Marino are single digits. I guess that's a good sign except....Trent Dilfer is also a scratch golfer. I'm about a plus 20. Maybe Henne and I can hit the links then.

    Brandon Weeden is too old, reached his ceiling in college. I will throw up if we drafted him earlier than the 5th round. There are only three QBs that I want and thats Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin and Ryan Tannehill, if we cant get one of these three than dont waste a draft pick just drafting any old QB. There might be a hidden gem in this draft no one is talking about, but other than the top three i mention I am not interested.
