Payton the QB guru right?

Hey everyone,

I was ruminating on Payton's career with QBs. Particularly in terms of how he has spent a career getting very good results from average guys.

For example, Kerry Collins took the Giants to the superbowl while working with Payton.
Payton got very good results with 3 different QBs in 3 different years with the Cowboys--Carter, Vinny and Bledsoe.

Is there a QB in the draft that it would be good to pick up just to see what Payton could get out of him? In particular, I'm curious whether Payton is the guy to turn someone like Cutler into a big time player? Then we could trade down and have a slew of picks and a premeire talent. Or if Payton could accelerate Vince Young's learning curve (honestly guys, he even made Qunincy Carter look servicable). Or if Payton could make a late round pick into a franchise player.

RE: Payton the QB guru right?

Any of them i guess. that is his thing. I look at brains as his key factor. he has never really picked the QB he wanted, so this could be fun. I think no QB until the 7th. or FA.

Mroz is an interesting prospect to me too. I just did some looking into him after seeing the SI article this morning. I wonder who Payton would have ready first--Mroz or Amac?

RE: Payton the QB guru right?

I voted for Vince Young just because of that Quincy Carter comparison, BMG. I really hope we don't take a QB, and especially VY, but I think it'd be interesting to see what he could get out of Vince. I'm also glad that Brooks is gone, but I thought it would at least be interesting to see what he could do with AB.

But I am really excited to see with a GOOD quarterback. If he can turn average quarterbacks into 3000 yard passers, then I can't wait to see what he's going to do with a guy who is already a 3000 yard passer.

I saw Mroz in action last year against Princeton. He made a ton of mistakes. It never occured to me that I might be watching a prospective professional quarterback.

RE: Payton the QB guru right?

I picked OMar Jacobs, but I wanna change it to Brodie Croyle.... well, I would like to see either one. Mainly because we can use a lower pick on them, and if they produced it would be like YAY, and if not than we can say we didn't use a high rounder on them.

We won't be bale to use a lower pick on Croyle. He'll go in the second round.

True, but he won't be used with our first rounder, thats all I really care about... not using our first on a QB.
