Osweiller's contract will run out and he'll be a free agent without ever seeing any real playing time for us. What a waste of a second round pick. At least Ted on a rookie contract would stand a chance of someday seeing the field for us.

Insurance is never a bad pick. And I believe he'll stay here.

Ill go against the grain I suppose and say yes. He looks like he has a good ceiling in the NFL.

Hopefully he's out of the league in two years.

A second round pick would have looked better on our defensive side of the ball than the guy holding a clipboard the last two seasons. If Manning goes down our season is over anyway, that's no insurance its a wasted roster spot.

I've never understood why pro days can have such an affect like they are having. It seems like Bridgewater's tape means nothing now because of one workout in shorts.

I don't think it matters one way or the other. He won't see the field for 3 years and neither will Brock. The more I think about it, the more I believe Manning will play another 3 years. He just broke a ton of passing records last year. He's playing at a high level. He wants to win a few more rings and smash all the league passing records.

I think there's a chance this year is it.

Peyton is playing at a high level. He's never missed a game in all of the seasons he's started. I hope he plays another four seasons and reaches Favre's retirement age. That said, I think we would be lucky for a talented QB to slide back to us like Rodgers did for Green Bay. Franchise QBs are rare. There's no guarantee we'll find Peyton's replacement. The Packers were lucky to have Favre's replacement on the bench, but Favre on the other side of 40 was the Vikings best QB since Culpepper. The Vikings are still looking.

*Sigh* why are people so short sighted? He wasn't bad at all. He completed 70% of his passes, burned the clock, and took care of the ball as we ran Ronnie freakin Hillman over and over again.

The pick that would have solidified the MLB position for the next ten years with Lavonte David.

Why do you hate him so much SoCal?


The game that sticks out in my mind, in regards to Teddy, is the Bowl game where he surgically dismantled an amazing Florida Gator defense. To me Teddy has all tge tools to be a great QB in the NFL with time. Granted, time is a luxury we don't really have a lot of at this point, I can see him becoming a Drew Brees like player in 3-4 years.

I don't know why he's had such a slump, but as a freshman I was amazed by his arm strength and accuracy. I think he has the tools to ge that kind of player, only time will tell where his head is at.

I really like Teddy - I think he has all the intangibles including that elusive grace under pressure that marks out the special ones, so I think he has massive potential - could be another Montana with average measureables and arm strength but above-average nerve and game smarts

Still, that's just potential, he's still a risk as is any QB in the 1st round and with what we already invested in Brock we need to stick with him. Anyone who thinks they know what we have in Brock right now is a grade A idiot as we won't find that out until Peyton retires, so it just wouldn't be sensible to roll the dice on any QB in the 1st. If we needed a qb, then yes

Also, I think its a moot point as I don't think he slips that far - Mayock is talking up that pro day because like all other commentators he is gasping for air with the draft pushed back. Teams may also be talking up that pro day in the hope he falls to them. I think he'll be gone by around #25 at the latest

He may be one of the best players at QB in this draft, but he's certainly not top shelf QB prospect.

There's a difference.

Meh, I'd rather trade down with another team who will look for a QB (Jacksonville....), and pick up Boyd in the 4th/5th if you want a project QB who will sit for 2 years.

Nah, he should be pro bowl material right now!

If we take a QB at 31 I will lose my ****.
