This offseason has filled a lot of holes. A backup QB is a big need. To steal a great QB in the 3rd would be fine with me.

We have two backup QB's right now... The same guys we had last year. If Loomis wasted our 3rd round pick on a QB then I'd be convinced that the pressure of always trying to get under the salary had finally gotten to him and he's snapped.

Probably not... but he did. It's no different from any other prospect that comes out of LSU every year. Nothing wrong with supporting the local talent. I don't think that makes some of us homers, it makes us fans.

homer - A sports fan who picks his/her team to win, despite objective evidence to the contrary.


I always try to keep my objectivity.

Hey, I'm the biggest home of 'em all. I just don't think he's that good. What I mean is had he played for USC last year, assuming it was identical to his last year with LSU, nobody here would be of the mind that we should draft him, late round or otherwise.

I don't think he's that good either... but I see the potential there for him to possibly become a pretty good starter down the road. I don't want him here but I really hope he succeeds wherever he ends up.

Re: Zach Mettenberger marvels with maturity

The question, with Mettenberger or any QB, is...

Is he an improvement over Griffin and if so, is the improvement enough to justify the loss of the draft pick it would take to get him.

It certainly isn't worth burning a 1st rounder on a guy who will probably leave for another team after a couple seasons.

It might be worth a 6th or 7th though.

Personally I wouldn't burn a pick on a QB at all. Invite a 3 or 4 year project QB into camp to compete with Griffin.

IMO: Ryan Griffin is that 3 to 4 year project.

If we do draft a QB, I hope it is Aaron Murray.
