Leinart

Alright guys. I'm sitting here reading everyone slamming Leinart and I'm thinking to myself, "What the F@#K?!" A large segment of the population on this board, myself included, has been slamming AB for some time now. It's repeatedly been said that if we had a fundamentally sound QB then we would have won a bunch of those games that we lost. We bit$%ed about the bone-headed decisions AB made. And, in my opinion, we were 100% right. Now, we have the opportunity to draft a HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER........ and all I'm hearing is how he sucks. Let me tell you, the guy doesn't suck. He may not be the second coming of Joe Montana, but he ain't going to be another Ryan Leaf, or even Gino Toretta for that matter. The guy is a proven winner. Comes from a professional style of offense. Has mad smarts. And, if you watched the post-game interviews after the Rose Bowl, he really doesn't like losing. That is what I want in my QB. People say that Drew Brees' arm isn't strong enough. Last I checked, that guy has turned into a damn decent QB with a very bright future if he recovers well from this surgery. Tom Brady does not have an exceptionally strong arm, but I don't know anyone that wouldn't take him on their team.

My point is, if you look at the guy's performance, he's a very sound QB. I know I wanted to see what McPherson could do at the end of the season, but we didn't get that. So, i really have no idea what he can truly give us at the position. However, with Leinart, we get a smart guy with big game experience that knows how to win, and has been playing every day for the last 3 years. I don't see how we don't take him. Without a quality QB, I just don't see this team going anywhere in the near future. And I don't believe that there are any other QB's coming out that have anywhere near the polish that Leinart has as a true passing QB. Young is a freak, man, and that's something to debate in another topic, but Leinart knows how to play the position. I say that's our future QB.

May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotch, and your arms be too short to scratch.

RE: Leinart

Lienart is the man. Good decission making skills and a drive to win. He should be able to walk in and take a leadership role. And best of all is that you could start him game one of next year and I don't think he'd panic one bit. He's been in too many big games to be that freaked by it.

RE: Leinart

Yes a good post with some mistakes. You said we should take him because he is a Heisman trophey winner. Danny Woefull was a Heisman trophey winner with a similar team around him(Tall speedy recievers, quick running backs to throw screens to. Danny was also VERY smart. Danny also won BIG games like a National Campionship. Danny played in a better conference, but Danny had a weak arm, and Small hands. He didn't transition inot the NFL well at all. Although he was the NFLE MVP.) Will Leinart be the next Danny Woefull......NO, but will he save this team from a cellar dweller to a Super Bowl contender probably not in the first 3 years when we need it most. Face the facts guys we need to fill the seats this year or the NFL will say Benson is free to explore the outside world. Leinart's name doesn't do that, just like Eli's name didn't put more fans in the seats at Giant's stadium(Not that they needed it.) My biggest worry is BUTTs in the SEATS in '06. I hope Leinart goes somewhere where he CAN make a difference, but it will need to be a good system for QBs. Who do you think makes Tom Brady great? His coaches.

RE: Leinart

I don't see too many people saying Leinart sucks, but if he started next year he would get killed and some members know how important the defense is and if you have been here for a few years you know we have not drafted alot of defensive picks in the first round, when we actually needed it. Defense will win for us in the future even if the offense doesn't show up.

RE: Leinart

You getting tired yet cher? I am.
Just watching this weekends playoffs proved defenses can carry a so so offense. Not the other way around. Eli is lucky in his situation. next year he will be better and be back in the playoffs. without the defense it would all rest on his arm and he would be destroyed. he has made stides leaps and bounds over the last two years and this year his line will be upgraded results will be a division title is next year. the gaints are doing it right. he was not thrown to the wolves. See how we miss used or running backs this year. abandon the run and go to the pass. not smart football any young QB no matter how gifted will not survive if the defense can not keep them in the game.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!! JoeSam..."True fans don't boo.Karney..."We may have lost the game, but you'll be hurting tomorrow." Hall of Famer, Doug Atkins

RE: Leinart

Yeah I'm starting to slow down but I can't believe that almost everyone on the board has gone for yelling for defense the last three or four years to, "we need Leinart". I ain't buyin that and Benson won't want to pay for it either.

RE: Leinart

I don't think that will be a problem. After what San Antonio pulled Nagin will make sure every home game is a sellout. If they can cheat so can we.

RE: Leinart

One or two Defensive picks this year won't turn around the D. The right head coach and D-Coordinator will. But I completely agree the ignoring the D on draft day hasn't helped much, or any at all. This year is no different. But you trade down, take a DL or CB who can/should start. Great, now who's your QB?

This boards been all over AB for years, so hes out. Todd proved he's not that great, toss him too. And if Benson's not paying for Leinat then he's not paying for a free-agent QB a-la Brett Farve or Drew Brees (though both might actually go cheap).

So, now a mediocre D is trying to cover for a bad to mediocre QB. That's just more losses. And our D wasn't THAT BAD. 14th isn't so horrible, it's didn't help the D that there were defending short feilds. It's a tough decissions to go D over O and would truely need to be the head coach's decission. So it really boils down to, do you want an O or D minded head coach next year?
