Recommended Posts

Say the Colts dont get the first pick or they trade back, which QB would you want the most besides Luck?

Robert Griffin III

Matt Barkley

Landry Jones

Nick Foles

Krik Cousins

Brandon Weeden

My ranking would be Griffin, Barkley, Cousins, Foles, Weeden, Jones. IMO im honestly not sold on Jones.

I've watched multiple games of each of these QBs and my ranking would be:

T1-Barkely

T1-Foles

2-Jones

3-Cousins

4-Griffin

5-Weeden

Weeden is going to have a tough time because he'll be a 28 year old rookie. He's older than both Aaron Rodgers and Curtis Painter so it's going to take him falling into just the right situation and I don't think that would be the Colts if there's any hope that Manning will return. Jones started off having a great year but has been in a bit of a slump lately. That could be at least in part due to losing their best WR Ryan Broyles for the year with a torn ACL. Any QB is going to struggle to some degree when they lose their best offensive weapon. I'm also not sold on Griffin.

Robert Griffin III = Michael Vick

Matt Barkley = Mark Sanchez

Landry Jones = Josh Freeman

Nick Foles = Matt Schaub

Kirk Cousins = Alex Smith

Brandon Weeden = Chris Weinke

I know we can't take him, but Luck reminds me of Aaron Rodgers

Take your pick, but I would like a Michael Vick (Robert Griffin III) if we don't get Luck. Griffin can run and has a laser arm, plus with Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon and Dallas Clark and Austin Collie and Joseph Addai and a ever improving O-line, he could really succeed in our offense.

Nah, I hate building franchises around those Michael Vick kind of players. You're gambling each and every season on injuries and your team may have chemistry issues and locker room controversies if all of a sudden the backup does decent.

I'd rather just have a pure pocket passer. He can run once in a while, but preferably on designed roll-outs.

RG3 is not mike vick, he is the first RG3. I dont think i have ever seen a true pocket QB that has the speed of RG3. This player could be something special. Unfortunately with his latest performance vs Oklahoma i doubt he makes it past the first round even top 15 so it looks like he wont fall to the Colts.

1- Moore (If we got him in the fourth round. He studies film almost as much as Peyton does. Would be a perfect qb who would wait to start for 3-5 years.) 2- Barkley or RG3 (We trade down n get more picks n grab one of them in the 1st round. They are starters right away). 3- Luck (Can start right away obviously but just think his skill is a little overrated.) 4- Jones. 5- Cousins.

Your comparison is exactly my point... who would want any of those alternative QB choices when we can have the real thing in Luck. I never buy generic brands because why suffer for trying to save just a small amount of money to keep yourself from enjoying the thing that you know is best... and instead throw away what you just wasted your money on because its no good.

    • Did you get to see the game? KT had sooo much bad luck on soft hits
    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
