Who picks Matt Barkley next year?

I think it will be the Cards once they clean house. I’m hoping they don’t come for Chud lol.

That's a pretty bold statement. They went and got him Jackson and the TE from the Colts, you don't think he can be serviceable?

He's average to me, but I don't think he sucks that bad.

I'm just not impressed. Had a good year in 2010 but struggled terribly at times last year. Granted, he was in a bad spot with a pathetic defense. I don't think he's the worst quarterback in the league but he's in the bottom 1/2 of starters in my opinion. I don't think the Bucs will be a considerably better team this year, regardless of the improved defense, Carl Nicks, V Jax, etc. Maybe 6-10 at best. Two years in a row in the cellar and you start looking for a new quarterback in this league. I definitely think he can be serviceable, in the sense that Matt Cassell and Ryan Fitzpatrick are serviceable. But his contract is coming up and they'll have to make a decision - Freeman or competition? If the Bucs contend for a playoff spot this is all irrelevant. But I don't think they will come close and we'll be discussing the Bucs as a team considering a quarterback early in the draft next offseason.

I'm gonna go with a team nobody's mentioned yet...the Bucs.

There's a good chance they look for another quarterback. Freeman is not good and they'll finally realize it this year.

not sure who they can draft, but i wouldn't be a bit surprised if the bucs did draft a QB in the first or maybe second round just because new HC is going to want his guy behind center, not the previous HCs guy.

it all depends on what schiano wants in a QB, tho. he seems like a guy that wants a good old fashioned game manager who stands in the pocket. he doesn't seem interested in any potential dual threat guy.

freeman doesn't necessarily have to light it up this year. he has to play not to lose and keep the ball safe. he has to be mistake free or freeman will be a free man come next year (or whenever his contract is up).

No TD in a loss to Stanford.

Told ya, Clausen 2.0

Way to read the stat line and make baseless and asinine assumptions. Anybody who actually WATCHED that game last night would know Barkley was far from the problem. He had zero time to stand in the pocket and find open receivers last night. The offensive line was putrid which made the playcalling awful as well....

First off, this next QB class really isn't that good and Thomas may not even declare and stay a Hokie another season (probably be the smart move considering his play)..Wilson, Barkley, and Jones..meh. The top pick won't be a QB at the current rate

If Weeden keeps showing more they may not go Barkley even if the Browns have the first pick

Same with Tannehill and the Dolphins

My complete guess that means nothing:

Tyler Wilson/Landry Jones/Barkley to KC, Vikings, or Zona, Logan Thomas to the Raiders (if he goes)

Geno smith will be a great pro. Nice size accuracy and quick release.

I think Bray will outplay Barkley for the top pick, and become a Chief.

Barkley will probably be a Bill.
