You should watch some of the bills games, you canít judge any of them on the first season, other then Allen,Darnold & Mayfield all showed flashes of what they can do in the NFL.

That's just silly. The QB's who went in the 1st round were all talented and worthy of their first round selections. Some went higher than they should have while others went lower.

Good article on Todd Marinovich. A hell of a way to live a life.

Itís not silly. Allen was way too much of a project to be taken in the 1st, and Rosenís tape and personality were both underwhelming. And donít even get me started on Jackson. Anyway, those are my grades. I donít expect others to agree with them.

I did watch some of the Billsí games. Allen as a passer is brutal to watch most of the time, even for a rookie.

Your dislike of Jackson has always been dumb. I don't like Rosen's style but he was still a 1st round QB and so was Allen.

They were drafted in the 1st, so I canít argue otherwise. They didnít get 1st round grades from me though, and I stand by that. Time will tell who was right, me or those front offices. All I can say is that I personally like six QBís in this class more than any of them.

Did you see Jackson in the playoffs? He basically ran a Tebow offense all year, the chargers adjusted and he was exposed. Heís really far away from being a legit passer.

Chargers are a very good team and he almost led them back.
Rookie QBís tend to struggle in the playoffs. Go figure.

Would you care to share your evaluations with the mane? Perhaps you see something others do not and we could collaborate about it...

Allen was better than I expected. Their offense only went with how he played. He played pretty well all things considered.

Peters: Tell Coop I thought he knew us. He said he played us 2 times a yr. Thats 12 times he played against me and Talib. He got strapped. He had that TD but he didnt do ****. I choked him out. He couldnt do nothin. He was crying for his mama. Thats how he is. Thats why the Raiders got rid of him.

Sure. As soon as the OM draft is over. I've already said too much.

As a passer he was pretty awful.
