Oh, I dont know if any thread is moot or pointless. You have to admit its an interesting thought, or in the words of Pee Wee Hermann, "Made you look."

The Mark Ingram trade we don't have a player on the field full time. Instead we have a part time player. We cannot afford to do this at this time in Drew Brees's career.

What we need is a full time starter and a difference maker. Since we seem to get a lot of our offense players very quickly..
nice. scary stuff, when you do serious talk. agree 100%.

But no, I dont want a Vince Young/ Cam Newton/ Steve Young running quarterback. RGIII found out yesterday that he's in the NFL. (channeling Jerry Glanville) "You're not at a homecoming, son. You're not playing Vanderbilt. This is the NFL, which stands for "N.ot F.or L.ong," when you run around like you're in college. You'll be selling groceries."

I want a great, accurate, smart passer, who doesnt have to have the biggest arm, but an NFL caliber one, doesnt have to be a great runner, just makes smart moves to avoid pressure, and doesnt have to be big at all, just durable, and able to plow ahead, when necessary. He needs to be a leader.

A QB's most important tools are: #2, his arm, #1 his mind.

No. We don't need a QB.

Re: Should we draft Johnny Football ...

What works in college doesn't necessarily work in the Bigs. Ask Tim Tebow...or that guy, White I think was his last name...QB from Oklahoma that won the Heisman but didn't sniff the NFL.

Even if he does succeed for a while by scrambling and standing on his tip-toes to see downfield like Drew...like everybody else said...he won't last for long. He will go get in line at the Dr.'s office with Vick and RGIII, etc.

Speaking of Tebow, though...and I don't intend to hi-jack...just reminded me of something I was thinking about the other day...

Why does everybody say, "You can't change your offense to suit one guy", when referring to Tebow, but nobody has peeped about the pro version of Southern Cal with their triple option over there in D.C...

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Re: Should we draft Johnny Football ...

The folowing two words never mix well for our team.

1.) Heisman

2.) 1st round pick

Oil and water come to mind.
