Andrew Luck News & Updates

720 posts in this topic

I think McNabb on a 2 year deal to provide early guidance and an easy transition into the starting role for whoever we draft (even Luck) would be a solid idea.

McNabb is not a bad QB by any stretch and should have enough gas left in the tank to start while the young QB learns then provide mentoring and help him learn from the bench after transitioning out of the starting role.

Alex Smith sucks.

Glad to see you put so much thought into that one. And what exactly has McNabb done to prove he's any better? Getting benched for Grossman?

Im not opposed to signing a vet AND Draft a QB. But signing a vet and not addressing the QB position in the draft (like we've been doing for years) has gotten us nowhere.

Id gladly take McNabb to help groom a young QB. but hes how old? Exactly how long do you expect him to play?

We got a highly tauted rookie QB this year, remember? The most NFL ready QB and you guys are already throwing him under the bus. This board will crash and burn if we draft Luck and he has a shitty rookie year.

Alex Smith does suck - it doesn't really require a lot of flowery wording to get out there.

We have a young team. We are building with youth. We got rid of most veterans. Why then would we bring in McNabb or any veteran, who maybe has 2 halfway decent years left in him, to keep the QB spot warm for an eventual rookie. Then when the rookie was starting to play, the rest of the team would be playoff ready?

No

It makes more sense to have a young QB learning with the rest of the young team. It would also be more in line with the M.O. of the FO.

Alex Smith in 2010: 12TDs 10INT 60.4% 210YPG 79.7 Rating

Donovan McNabb in 2010: 14TDs 15INT 58.3% 260YPG 77.1 Rating

How exactly are they any different? It's not as if McNabb is running around anymore. He's got only 70 yards less rushing than Smith and 6 more fumbles. Plus McNabb is 34. He's just as ridiculous of a suggestion as Smith. One would be far cheaper and less competition to sign though.

Alex Smith has never won a playoff game. How many games has he won? He sucks, look around, ask around. Any way you spin it he sucks. And unless McNabb pulls a Favre with another team, he looks washed up. He is lacking weapons though. Hed make a good mentor.

We got a highly tauted rookie QB this year, remember? The most NFL ready QB and you guys are already throwing him under the bus. This board will crash and burn if we draft Luck and he has a shitty rookie year.

Keep riding on that one.

I hope Richardson isn't dumb enough to secure a losing season by starting another rookie QB. He's a business man and one bad year hurts, two bad years is a trend. I think he'll allow the new caoch to "dabble" in FA instead of being held out of it.

He's shown flashes. I'm not saying he'll be the savior...but he wouldn't be a terrible option. Smith/Luck/Clausen...I can get on board with that.
