    I looked for a report on Scarborough after the injury in the title game. I have not read anything. I hope he is OK. I enjoyed his downhill runs. Good looking kid on the field.

    That is good. I like that style of running.

    It is a pass-happy game now. I am sure it fills the seats and does wonder for TV ratings but I do look forward to a smash mouth game. LOL

    I have watched more NBA this year than the last 5. I'm not much on TV at night but when staying at my mother in laws it is about the only thing to watch.

    Being a Clemson first Carolina 2nd fan. I was shocked at the Trubisky/ Watson picks.

    I was thinking Trubisky should have started in front of Williams year before last and maybe the resume would be there. 13 starts is minimal compared to the 30 plus wins Watson had.

    Over all I think Watson landed in a better spot. The Texans line is much better. With the Browns, Trubisky will be getting up off the ground on the regular.

    I did not see much on Garret at #1. Warren Sapp and a couple of others ripped him up pretty hard. I think it was their best pick.

    Bama had 4 go in the first round.Not the first time either.I love Watson ,this guy is tough.Watson took some huge shots from Bama and he got up every time.Two hit him at the same time and helicoptered his ass! I said he is done ! Dam if he didn't get back up lol.He took some vicious hits from Bama ,he earned that win the hard way.Much respect for D Watson.

    Agreed.

    My opinion is that a team should never pick a QB in the top 2 or 3 spots. Most of these teams pick in this spot for a reason. They pretty much suck across the board. The offensive line can't protect the QB they already have, the defense gets put right back on the field, they get beat down and the other team is up enough that forces the crappy team to throw the ball. Cycle is continually repeated.

    Very few top pick QB's health lasts long enough for the rebuild around them.

    There was some comments about Trubisky going ahead of Watson. Both short term and long term Watson got the better chance to compete long term.

    He will be running to find the next receiver and/or move the chains. Trubisky, who is not all that mobile, will be running for his life.

    Two different reasons to run.

    With that said, Trubisky is the more proto typical NFL QB. He stands tall in the pocket, has great movement/adjustments in the pocket with a ton of arm talent. For me year before last he gave Carolina a better chance to win over the starter Williams.
    He and the Tar Heels lost two or three games this year on dumb ass calls from the side lines. I think he has all the skills and abilities needed. I am hoping he can take that beating, get up and perform.

    It'll be fun to watch both develop....Watson is a gamer but does throw picks which is never good heading to the NFL...Trubisky has a great arm but when he throws deep down field in the middle he has a habit of floating his passes a bit which could lead to picks in the NFL...we'll see who made the better pick a few years down the road:)

    True. I'm leaning toward Watson based on what is already around him.

    With that said, switch the two and I would lean toward Trubisky.

    I was weary of Prescott coming out last year. He landed on maybe the best line in football with a running back that excelled.

    The difference is Prescott had time in the pocket to work thru his progressions. He learned weekly with that time.

    Trubisky, odds are, will have to hurry things with the Bears. With the Bears, last year it was primary receiver...covered, secondary receive...WHAM!. No time for a learning curve for a rookie QB.

    Watson should be a little better off.

    It's going to be interesting to see what Prescott does his second year now that coordinators have film on him.Dallas had the best O-line in the league by far last year

    Nathen Peterman is not the best QB in the draft from a talent perspective .He led the Pitt offense this year and they became the highest scoring offense in Pitt history.I'm saying this guy may have a chance.Dark Horse.

    Let me also say he may not be a starter in the NFL .May be 2nd or even 3rd string.I mean I think he has a chance to srick around a while in the NFL

    The feelings mutual Bama:) Peterman does have lots of talent his biggest knock is his accuracy which usually doesn'tt get better in the NFL

    This is border line the same discussion I had with my buddy about Kapernick. The second and third year when there is film available has to be the toughest years for a QB. The QB has to get better and bring more to the table or his weaknesses and tendencies get exposed. The read-option made defenses look bad for a year maybe a year and a half. Once the film was out the defensive coordinators snuffed it out to the point offenses went another direction.

    I was not a Cam Newton fan coming out of college. I thought he would make on read and take off and his demise would be the injuries of being a running QB in the NFL. The work and effort he put in between years 2 and 4 should be the text book for QB's coming into the league. Kapernick did not read the Newton manual and he became a one trick pony. Thus he is unemployed, not his kneeling antics. Defenses confused him when he was in the pocket.

    Prescott has the advantage of a league's best O line and an incredible running game. He also has a Hall of Fame tight end who is always open. (slow as cold molasses, but always open)

    I think Watson's situation is really comparable to Prescott in Dallas. They have a really good defense and they have a line they can run behind. If they thought they were going QB in the draft I thought they would have made a run at Peterson and use "Texas" as a leveraging point.

    Like everything else, time will tell.
