Mallet will become a good QB in the NFL. Like it or not he has all the tools and his Arm will help him out a bunch. The whole reason everyone passed on Clausen was because of Cartier issues and a weak arm. Were they wrong??? The way I see the QB rankings is this.

Luck,Newton,Mallett, then Locker.

Notice how Mallett bitched to the refs after every single play?

No thank you.

Are you Kidding? Mallet looked very good except for a couple of plays. His liablities to me looked as simple a needing more touch on short passes. His deep balls were spot on.

His liablities are his gunslinger like mentality and of course how will he move in the pocket, i think he's an easier sack than all the other draft prospects.

All QBs throw interceptions, get over that. Mallet needs to work on his footwork but he will wow some people at the combine and will probably go pretty high. Remember, if the punt return team scoops and scores instead of kicks it around and falls on it, this conversation never happens and Mallet is shooting up draft boards. I still think it goes Luck, Locker, Mallet/Gabbert, Newton.

true, all QBs throw interceptions, but his was at the worst time in the game, i am not saying he sucks, i just think Luck is better. Mallett's footwork isnt as bad as his want to throwing passes and forcing them and him not being mobile, Mallett will be good in time, as for the punt return, true on that, BUT the blocked punt put Mallett in position to win the game, the loss in my book is more on him than the guy scooping the punt, there was NO need to force that throw, it wasnt 4th down.

Mallet will become a good QB in the NFL. Like it or not he has all the tools and his Arm will help him out a bunch. The whole reason everyone passed on Clausen was because of Cartier issues and a weak arm. Were they wrong??? The way I see the QB rankings is this.
Luck,Newton,Mallett, then Locker.

if you mean character issues, Newton and Mallett both have the same issues, as for Mallett, his arm is great, but i worry about how he reminds me of a slower Jay Cutler. and where's Gabbert on your list??? he's going pro too, my rankings are Luck, Locker, Gabbert and Mallett are tied because i dont know who's better, then Newton.

FWIW, the INT wasn't forced. OSU dropped a D-lineman in zone coverage. He was expecting a blitz and the WR had his man beat. Mallett just didn't see the lineman dropping back in zone.


Edit: Mallett best resembles Flacco.

Well then he was LATE on the throw, still this loss goes to his last interception which he either forced or threw too late, the fact is he threw an interception when they had the ball in the red zone area.

For the record he didn't force the throw he just didn't see the defender, it happens all the time. Considering the fact that the defender is a pass rushing specialist, no one expected him to drop from the Dtackle spot to coverage so give the kid a break and chalk it up to good defense.

Clausen doesn't have a weak arm.

As for Mallett. He's a bit of a statue back there, but then Brady is hardly fleet of foot. He needs to work on his footwork.

lol, why make excuses? that int was completely his fault. Just like the interception luck threw Monday night, his fault. He made 1 too many mistakes (that was really the only 1 that mattered). I don't see the big deal w/ admitting that he screwed up, no one is perfect.

Wow. Sounds like someone doesn't want any talk of 'possible' competition to ole Lucky. You know that IF the Panthers trade down there's a good chance they may take another QB. That thought is irksome to some I see.

And no Mallett's pass wasn't late, the WR had just broke his route inside. Yes, his fault but even NFL QBs routinely make that mistake. That does not make them bad QBs, just a heck of a defensive call.

It's the fact that people are using that 1 play to base whether or not he will be a good QB or whether or not we should draft him. It's pretty comical.

an interception doesnt JUST happen because of good defense, either he forced it, it was late or the dtackle read his eyes and saw where he was throwing the ball.

Clausen doesn't have a weak arm. As for Mallett. He's a bit of a statue back there, but then Brady is hardly fleet of foot.

agreed, that's one issue i have with Mallett.

lol, why make excuses? that int was completely his fault. Just like the interception luck threw Monday night, his fault. He made 1 too many mistakes (that was really the only 1 that mattered). I don't see the big deal w/ admitting that he screwed up, no one is perfect.

agreed again, it's not like we are saying Mallett sucks, we just dont think he's worth the first overall pick and he's not.

Wow. Sounds like someone doesn't want any talk of 'possible' competition to ole Lucky. You know that IF the Panthers trade down there's a good chance they may take another QB.

NO, i just dont want them to draft Mallett as first overall, he's not worth it, what with the Jay Cutler gunslinger mentality, the movement in the pocket, he's not worth the top pick.

And no Mallett's pass wasn't late, the WR had just broke his route inside. Yes, his fault but even NFL QBs routinely make that mistake. That does not make them bad QBs, just a heck of a defensive call.

did you read what i wrote?? he's NOT a bad QB, i compared him to Cutler, he's got talent, but he's also got to get better at alot of things, i think he will put up big numbers next year, including interceptions.

Eh. I'd take him over Locker. Probably tied with Newton.

i wouldnt take him over Locker, i am a fan of Locker's, BUT i would take Mallett over Newton. Mallett IS ready to start in the NFL.

It's the fact that people are using that 1 play to base whether or not he will be a good QB or whether or not we should draft him.

no one is using that ONE play, they are looking at his whole year and he's had his great moments and his bad moments, he reminds me of a slower version of Jay Culter, i expect him to throw alot of touchdowns and of course alot of interceptions, Mallett has that gunslinger mentality which is both good and bad. i wouldnt hate to see him on the Redskins (another team i like), but number one overall is a reach for him.

Agree with earlier assessment of reminding me of Cutler. Big arm but will force some throws and make throws off backfoot etc. I think if you give him a decent team around him he could be a good NFL QB, perhaps not franchise, but could win games like Cutler. But you have to be ready for the bad side to pop up.
