    Matt Moore is already potentially a better QB than Ryan Tannehill (at this stage in his career). There is very little evidence that Ryan Tannehill is significantly better. So if you want a quality backup QB, just keep Matt Moore.

    Why do this when we are all so certain Tanny is a franchise QB?

    Mike Vick is probably the greatest dual threat QB of all-time and that's saying something.
    In the past I would have agreed with this. But the 'new' holding rules (or I should say the total unwillingness to enforce the actual rules) have changed the entire setup. It used to be that NFL defences were so fast laterally that they could pursue running QBs and, in particular, kill the read option. But now that OL are allowed to hook and hold onto DL, the defence are unable to disengage and pursue laterally when the QB runs. In my view it is clearly no longer 'blocking' but unless the OL actually grabs the jersey they can hook and hold a lineman and that makes running QBs much more difficult to stop.

    And yes, you should always be drafting QBs when you get the chance, probably every year, just to see if you get lucky.

    Id love to resign Matt Moore. If we cant I wouldnt mind taking that Nassib kid from Syracuse if he were available in the mid rounds. We are going to need a solid backup QB and I dont have a problem using a draft pick on that position. Backup QB is an important spot.

    I hate even POSTING on a thread like this because it gets bumped up when it deserves to be deep-sixed.
    wilson and RG3 have very little to do with vick, both are already top level passers , vick got better as a passer but these guys have little in common with vick.

    RG3 wont be around long unless he changes his play style.

    Wilson is legit.

    There's nothing certainfor Griffin, Luck, Wilson or Tannehill.

    Tannehill has the least exp while Wilson had the most. Simple. Also if Wilson was 6'2 he would've gone BEFORE Luck.

    Maybe we could tag Jake Wrong and trade him to Atlanta for Matt Ryan?

    I think Wilson will probably be OK, but Griffin is gonna be out of the league by 2016.

    Agreed. Wilson is a solid player IMHO. More to his game than the threat of breaking an 80 yard run. I see Wilson being a good QB in this league for a lot of years. RG3............. He will be finished real soon. Lets see what happens when defenses dont have to honor the threat of his run. No more single safety for RG3. I dont see him being able to throw it effectively against a standard defense.

    Wilson is a QB. RG3 is a gimmick.
