NFC Scout on Gabbert

bulger as useless as volek? lol. the dude has actually won games and played whole seasons. you want someone with experience? thats him. i didn't say anything about starting. you want someone who has actually spent time playing to help bring guys along.

what exactly makes volek a good teacher? nothing except for you to find a reason to bring him here. you're reaching at best. he's a weak choice for any reason. saying that kerry collins isn't a better choice than volek is hilarious. do you know why volek left the titans? after mcnair was traded, volek had the opportunity to start and started screwing around, not taking advantage of the situation. fisher wasn't happy with volek's dedication so they brought in collins to compete for the job. volek got his poor little feelings hurt and asked for a trade. the titans were upset with him because he showed very little commitment to preparing for the season and was criticized for his poor work ethic. on top of that fisher said he lied to him about something. he got traded to the chargers for a 6th round pick.

sorry, i don't see him as being any more commited to playing the game or any better of a mentor than collins. again, i'm no fan of collins, but given a choice between the two i'm going with collins.

IMO I would not mind bringing in Volek and Bulger if we dont draft a QB and are set on working with Clausen. Just sit Clausen, Let Volek play, and have Bulger as a backup mentor. Pike goes to the PS squad IMO.

don't you guys want to win?

Just depends on what approach we take. I want Newton but that dose not mean the cookie will crumble that way.

The thing that bothers me about him and guys like him is, WHO IS HE? Really... I just don't have a good feeling when these guys come out of nowhere and are just riding a wave of hype based off of mainly one year of work.

What I mean is, they may be a JR., but they're only known for playing really well and being a top NFL prospect for one year, they don't have a thorough resume, and he just doesn't impress me. Maybe he has it, but I doubt it.

He was a good prospect last year. He just wasn't going out so he didn't get a ton of press. He had some good numbers though. He has been a highly touted player for some time and there was never any doubt the NFL was in his future if he continued to develop, and heh as.

Gabbert's rise is not at all based on one year but on his last one as well. *shrugs*

I admit, I'm not as familiar with the midwestern/Big 12 teams as I am with others, but I had heard of him... I just didn't hear all of the hype until this year. Whereas, with a guy like Matt Ryan, Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers, etc. I had heard of well before they came out and they were established in college. Only successful guy of recent memory that I remember being another guy that just kind of "blew up" from one year in college was Ben Roethlisberger.

Oh my God, you keep beating the same old drum. We have NOTHING to trade for him. They want a 2nd, where the hell do we pull that from?

everyone on this forum said Marshall wouldn't go for anything less than 2 1st round picks.. all those people look like fools now. just sayin. ;)

someone smart in the FO could find a solution.. only fools look at a situation and find reasons why they can't do something.

the same old drum is the best solution, the FO just has to put a little effort in..

Fair enough I wasn't aware of that.

When I was talking about Bulger I was talking about him starting, which is what you were complaining about in the prior post. Obviously if you want a mentor, you would go Bulger before Volek.

Gabbert is NOT the answer to our problems, IMO

We need a FA QB

...Just not Vince Young

Gamble the pick just cause we have to draft qb #1 Overall?

Glad our front office is smarter than that.
