Andrew Luck News & Updates

720 posts in this topic

this isn't about who we want starting, it's about a mentor for the young guy. Someone on the sideline that can help him out when times are rough. McNabb may be that player but honestly I suspect he will still want to start.

so really, it's like this:

Luck & Mcnabb & Clausen/Whoever or

Alex Smith & Clausen & Whoever

Don't misunderstand me, I don't think Smith is a long term solution. I want Luck. But the only thing McNabb has over Smith at this point in his career is his experience. But that may be cancelled out by feeling disrespected again if and when Luck outplays him.

1. Draft Luck

2. Keep Clausen or trade him if you get a nice offer

3. Sign a vet, maybe Marc Bulger to help both young QBs out

I would be happy with this situation

I don't want McNabb. He's on the decline. If Luck doesn't come out this year, I like the Kolb suggestion. I know he won't be a Free Agent, but he's young and still has some upside. Or possibly even a look at Matt Flynn (Green Bay). He looked pretty impressive in his first start @NE of all places.

Can someone with the power correct the spelling on the thread title please? If Jim checks here and we cannot spell his name or keep calling him John, he will not want to come here.

Kolb is another one I'd like to have here, but I think he'd cost a lot more and I'm not sure Philadelphia is ready to give him up.

I don't think Smith would be a good mentor personally, just because I think he will be looking for a fresh start. McNabb has disadvantages too but he is the most seasoned veteran.

He wasn't benched because Orton outplayed him btw.

Theres no question we will bring in a vet. But don't think you can keep getting buy without drafting a franchise QB and signing vets year after year. Ask Minnesota, and us.

I'm not an opponent of Luck, or a proponent, nor dor our opinions mattter anyway, but...

for the sake of argument here's what I would do;

1- Trade away first pick for as much as you can get

2- Trade/sign Sage Rosenfels to be our vet QB/stop gap starter

3- Draft Greg McElroy in the 3rd or 4th (with extra acquired picks) and let him ride the pine with pickles next year.

4- Use extra picks on Oline, Dline, and CB
