Barkley Sounds Undecided - But Takes First Step


Recommended Posts

Here's Matt Barkley in an interview....and he's applied for an NFL "evaluation" that many underclassmen do to determine their draft projection.

Tough to get a real clear read on his intentions....but my hunch is that he'll stay at USC since they regain bowl eligibility next season and the rookie cap means less financial risk by waiting a year.

Sounds like he wants to come back. This might raise our bargaining price for #1 overall if we decide to trade it seeing how Robert Griffin sounds like he wants to come back as well.

I would love it if he does. The news regarding Peyton's fusion is also good. As AC17 said, if Barkley stays in another year and Robert Griffin III also stays at Baylor another year (he's indicated that he would) that would greatly improve our odds of getting a ransom in trade for the chance to draft Luck. I would want nothing less than their 1st round, 2nd, and 4th in 2012, and likely 1st and 2nd round in 2013. If possible getting a 1st round in 2014 would be ideal because that is when another quarterback MUST be drafted if one has not already been selected to be groomed behind Manning in 2012. I don't think waiting until 2015 is a very safe bet. Rookie quarterbacks need at least 2-3 years to be prepared and with that much time the heir to Manning would have at least 8-12 preseason games and possible mop up opportunities to get a feel for the speed of the NFL game.

    • I just don't see the success continuing over their in Chicago when you have two starting quarterbacks creating all sorts of drama and distraction. If you watch any of the abundance of former players doing podcasts and stuff like that, they all say distractions play a huge part in a teams success. Chances are half the team wants Foles, half the team wants Trubisky. The coaches obviously want Foles... who really knows what the front office really wants. The locker room has to be an interesting place. It has disaster written all over it,
    • I do understand what you are saying here for the most part.  And theoretically I guess any given Sunday.   But I don't think the Titans were that close to actually beating the Cheifs and it's hard to imagine how they could barring a Mahomes injury.  They got absolutely boatraced after their initial lead.  But I do understand what you are saying here.  
    • That's not how you worded the question.  Manning was demoted in 15, remained on the team, and eventually started.   You may have meant the next year, but that's not what you said...dude.
    • I think most  NFL people would say that he put his trust in a fairly obviously washed up middle aged kicker, who had been in obvious decline for a couple years and then the guy they brought in didn't miss a kick if I remember right.   It seems liek they were "wrong" in their assessment of AV. I'm big fans of Ballard and Reich, but I would have rather seen a more business lik erather than emotional treatment of AV.
    • Just going back to these reports back in ‘18 when Nagy thought the Bears were a better situation. I know the Colts denied ever offering or the like, but there’s no way Nagy was not one of the top picks for them at that time. Nevertheless, I hope we blow the Bears out of the water so I can see Matt Nagy’s face.
