Possible Newton Backup?

26 posts in this topic

Id rather let RG3 be a starter for another team. Kid has some talent, and a hell of an arm, along with the smarts.

I hope he is around when we pick Just so we can get depth in a trade from a team wanting Griffin.

we won't get him, if Colin Capernick can get drafted in the 2nd round this guy is gone by the 4th (the absolute earliest we would possibly pick him up)

I'm fine with Derek Anderson as the back up. There's much bigger holes that needs to be filled besides a QB who will never see the field.

True. I like the kid is all. Watch out for him. Could be a poor mans Cam.

RG3 is 5'11(on a good day) & 220.

He's accurate as all hell, but that's going to be hard to duplicate in the NFL with 6'6 O-lineman on a consistent basis.

He'll probably still beast it up & be taken in the first round.

NFLdraftscout has him listed at 6'2" (of course they have been wrong before). If he is under 6' he wont get drafted in the 1st 2 rounds IMO. Remember Troy Smith?

Thats what I was thinking. 6'1 maybe.

Bullshit he isn't. Look at him compared to the other guys on his team that are listed at even 6' and above.

There's many QBs that have their listed height arbitrarily raised, especially when they're shorter than average.

I didn't say he'd fail because of it, but he's not 6'1 by far.

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
