    Starting QB 2019???

    If the Cardinals want Murray it doesn’t matter what any other team want or offer. They will take him. And to take any player number 1 overall you’ve got to want him - especially if you traded up last year to take a player in the same position. If don’t want him then I don’t see how showing interest helps them. Or the QB they took last year. Reality might well be they haven’t decided either way yet.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    This is a very interesting passing chart for Haskins. Hes solid across the board, including deep ball. He graded extremely well against pressure as well. He's the QB I would want out of this years draft for a traditional WCO based system, followed by Lock. But not if I have to trade up for either. In that case I would send the 2nd round pick to the Cardinals for Rosen.

    I would not trade up at all personally. Let the draft come to us. But next years first would be off the table. Maybe this years 2nd and one of the 3rd round picks. Max. Which leads me back to Rosen who we could probably get for this years 2nd if the Cards do want to move him. Thats the smart play IMO.

    I like Haskins. But not at that price or anything close to that price.

    I think the thing to look at with QBs like Haskins and Rosen (who are similar types of QBs) is how do they feel pressure and move within the pocket. Can they slide inside the pocket and when they feel pressure do they try to climb the pocket (step up) rather than look to bail out backwards or move outside the pocket etc etc. Haskins numbers against pressure last season were excellent by the way. If Haskins falls to pick 15 we are taking him. I think that's almost a lock. The question is will we move up because the assumption is he will not make it to 15.

    Are you kidding me? Pretty much all of them? How fast do you think Peyton ran the 40? Or Marino? Or Mark Rypien or Doug Williams come to that? "Athletic" QBs have pretty much been the exception not the norm. Of course 'athletic QB' was pretty much always used as another way of saying 'Black QB'. If you mean of current QBs not many are complete statues (and neither is Haskins) but think of Matt Ryan, Eli Manning (2 Super Bowls), Stafford, even Drew Brees or Big Ben do not move around much these days.

    I've seen this theory posted before. I don't agree. If the Cardinals love and want Murray they will take him, if they don't (or decide they have other needs that are more important) they won't. How does that drive up the value of the pick? The only value the pick has is if the are clear they DONT want him and teams who do then feel the need to trade up past another team who might jump to pick 2 or 3 to get him.
  8. Congress had zero role in setting up the Mueller investigation. That was set up by the DoJ. Not Congress. Trumps appointed Secretary of State recused himslef (to Trumps fury) and his Deputy Rod Rosentstein (also appointed by Trump) set up the investigation (also to Trumps fury). Mueller is also a registered Republican. No ‘Dems’ involved at that level. Look I’m British but I live here and I get this stuff. Three equal branches of Gvt. The Executive, The Legislature who create laws and have a role in oversight of the Executive and the Judiciary who investigate and uphold laws. That the Judiciary set up a special counsel to investigate the 2016 Election campaign and then candidate Trump does not excuse the duty of the Legislature to have oversight of the actions of the Executive. It’s hard to let go of the partisan party political aspect of this - but jeez ...

    A fair question. Because they are even more clueless and directionless than us is my answer. Its probably close to unique that a QB gets drafted top 10 by a team with a first time HC and that HC and coaching staff is let go at the end of his rookie season as well. Now a new HC with a completely different offensive system comes in and if they are going to commit to him a different type of QB is needed (Something they should have thought about during the hiring process for the HC role). And so here we are.
  10. You must have skipped a few Civics classes. One of the key roles of Congress is oversight of the Executive, a role confirmed several times by SCOTUS. The Special counsel investigation was set up and authorised by the Dept of Justice not Congress.

    I find arguments about how many successful NFL QBs a specific College has produced very unconvincing. Sometimes there can be something in a specific coach or system and their impact (good or bad) on a QBs development but even then - evaluate the individual QB not the program they come from. i like Rosen as well for a WCO. So it’s likely we just don’t see QBs the same way. For all that’s Holy let’s not start this ‘debate’ again.
  12. So if investigations into the 2016 election throw up evidence of possible criminal actions of the President, people attached to his campaign, his family (two of whom are senior members of his administration) and other senior officials within the Executive branch ... it’s your position that the House and Senate should do nothing but hope the FBI and Dept of Justice do a good job???

    I do. He’s the QB in this draft who is the most pro ready and the best fit for a WCO. He’s a very similar QB to Rosen actually. Great film here of him breaking down his own film - impressive.

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    I actually do. My son in law is in the RAF and is in flight maintenance. There was no link - do you have it? I'd be interested.
