Clady is going to be the best LT in the NFL in 2 years... He's already in the top 5

I went with Clady, based on this line of reasoning. Based on what we saw last year, Clady could be one of the best, if not the best, LT in the game very soon, if not now.

Marshall, is by far the best WR on the team, but he is probably somewhere between 4-10 in the league right now.

Champ was the best CB in the league at one point, but now he is top 5, maybe top 3, but probably has no chance to be the 'best' in the league.

So, since it is impossible to compare a WR to a CB to a LT heads up, I can only look at where they are likely to rank in the NFL this season, and I think Clady has the best chance to be among the best at his position (but Marshall is a close second, but I don't think he has a chance at being 'the best', where Clady could be).

Oh God this is fun. So far I have said in another thread that Royal is the best player on the team. In this thread I said Clady and I voted for Orton. I am having a good time tonight.

I can't wait to do camp with SoCAL tomorrow we will have a great time debating as we are opposite ends of the spectrum. He says he is bringing me a #6 Jersey. First thing I am doing is picking up my dogs **** with it and taking a picture.

Eddie Royal has the best attitude and is a tremendous player, but he'll never have the size and physical ability of Brandon Marshall. Brandon Marshall has HOF potential. Eddie Royal, maybe/maybe not. We could have a completely different opinion after this season. Eddie Royal is going to catch a lot of passes (like Wes Welker) and he has the speed and quickness to catch a block and GO...

I knew you weren't serious about Royal being the best player on this team. You sounded way to foolish to be serious. He might be my favorite player, but I'm not delusional. lol

Clady, with an honorable mention to Marshall (when healthy).

My first instinct was to say Clady, hands down but I think we've forgotten how good Champ Bailey is when he is healthy. What would he be capable of if we had a legit pass rush? Look at what he did a couple years back when he got snubbed for MVP and our pass rush wasn't even all that great.

I'm just not sure. I am by no means as down on him as many are now, and were last year, but I think he has lost a step, and no longer has the closing speed to make up for his guessing/gambling nature. I don't think he can any longer be the 'best' CB in the league.

Don't assume here. Royal is the better of the 2. Ability means squat when you are a head case and half assed player. I have no problem you calling me foolish when you are defending a head case women beater who wastes his ability. Yeah I am the foolish one

Default enough with the Royal>Marshall

i am as big a fan of Eddie Royal as anyone BUT...

can we please stop with the Royal>Marshall silliness?...

Marshall is a potentially top 5 WR in the game...

Eddie Royal is an emerging #2 receiver...c'mon guys...

I went with Champ. I want to see how Clady does without Cutler's mobility behind him(I'm sure he'll do well).

i wanted to say Eddie but based on the physical atttributes it is hard to say he is better than Marshall, RIGHT NOW.

however, if he can build upon last season and embrace the Wes Welker position on this team it is quite possible we have a Steve Smith type of diminutive WR that is unquestionably the number 1 receiver on the team. he runs better routes than Marshall, has better hands, is a better leader and has a better attitude. but with Marshall's freakish size and strength and production the last 2 years, it is premature to elevate Royal over him at this point. But next season even if Marshall is still here, i'd bet Royal is seen as a better receiver than him

but i went with Clady because he was the best player on the team last season and is quite possibly the best LT in the game right now, and if not right now he will be within the next 2 years.

Yea, this is a good point. From what I saw last year, I think he will do fine, but there is no question that Jay's mobility helped the line.

He is better. Have you seen something different in camp? Sorry if that cuts into you man crush but its fact.

And I thank God he is no Brandon Marshall as that would be a waste! Good point!
