The one thing that is nagging at me about our QB pick...


Recommended Posts

Howell had a good deep ball AT TIMES for sure. However, he also let it sail and hang for safeties to make plays on. Corral is the better deep ball thrower of the two.

McAdoo had Corral as QB1 in the draft. We got exactly who we wanted and It could not have played out better for what the STAFF wanted. We shall see if they were correct and if it pays off, but to risk only a 3rd round pick for a QB you had a first round grade on you take 10/10 times. I don’t know how McAdoo will turn out as our coordinator, but I do trust his judgment on QB’s.

I don’t mean to say you are incorrect but I haven’t seen a McAdoo list of the QBs. Fitterer said in another thread that everyone deferred to him to take Corral and Fitterer mentioned they were satisfied with Howell and Corral. I didn’t see anything that said McAdoo wouldn’t have taken Pickett, Ridder or Willis if they were available at 94. Fitterer’s comment that included Howell and Corral could have been based on when the first 3 were gone.

That said, now that we have Corral I don’t expect any post draft snippets that mentioned we really wanted Ridder. He obviously liked Corral over Howell and highly probable over Willis otherwise I think we would have jumped in closer to when Ridder went.

How the fug Did Baily Zappe get drafted before Howell?? I just looked that up and I'm flabbergasted and confused..

Seriously Howell was drunk  high and grabbing dudes wives in his team interviews..

not sure what the last line means, but Zappe was drafted by the same guy who took a G from Tennessee Chattanooga in round 1.

Last line was a sarcastic joke about why Howell dropped.. Because imo there is no reason he should have dropped to the 5th round..

I agree, actually.  Cannot understand why BB drafted Zappe before Howell.

From what I gather post draft he holds the ball too long, has a weird wind up and a tick of slapping the ball, locks on receivers and has a tendency to sail his deep throws.  There is also something about not being vocal leader etc.   But yeah 5th round is eye opening

At this point I think BB loves the attention of getting less talented players and making them better with his system...

He gets a chubby from taking a 6th round talent in the 1st round.. Have ppl clownhim for it.. Just to make that player hit so he can bask in the glory... Of system and the player get little to no credit..

I said we should have taken Zappe as a backup this year (and probably play him some for experience). 

Just like I said we should have taken Mac Jones.

Patriots got both of them.

But hell, what does their coach know about QBs?

He knows how to get QBS to work his system.. There isn't much evidence that outside of New England and BB.. That his system works without him running it.. So his type of QB isn't a sure thing to work for other teams..
