Draft Trace McSorley to replace Jacoby Brissett..

Recommended Posts

I am high on this kid, and still feel Ballard will get a 2nd for Brissett with Giants as the most likely destination..I think McSorley is really being slept on, all the kid does is win, and is a high level athlete..He has a great work ethic, attitude, and a unique skill set that has been proven recently to work in the NFL.. With good coaching and development, which the Colts now possess he can be more than a serviceable backup on the cheap for the next 4 years, and possibly much more..He has a little bit of Russell Wilson and Baker Mayfield in him...If he is there in back of 3rd or 4th you got to think about pulling the trigger..

I do think if anyone’s is interested in JB it is the Giants.  The league is all about connections and JB has a Bill Parcells connection who has a Giants connection who needs a QB. Now he may be brought in for competition w a draft pick.

I'd rather have Minshew late, than TM late. Neck-beard and stache would be an awesome pairing. But yes, he'd be fine if we ended up trading JB.

We are gonna lose Brissett next yr anyways..Got to start thinking about his replacement..I think McSorley is a Ballard kinda guy..Great work ethic,character, elite athlete, and proven winner..And yes, hopefully all he has to do is hold a clipboard, but with good coaching I think he can develop into a guy who can win some games if Luck goes down and possibly more than that..Much like Patriots always have a QB waiting in the wings that they can trade for assets down the road we need to also follow this model..

Read my mind, nice job connecting the dots..Brissett also fits the type of style the Giants have always played, he is a perfect fit for them. Don't rule out Arians not having faith in Winston and bringing him to Tampa either..

Brissett and a fifth rounder... for a 2nd or low 3rd... draft the difference maker (OT, WR, CB, or TE) then with one of the forth rounders Brett Rypien...or McSorley QB. IMO...

He's not an NFL QB IMO. Teams even wanted him to run safety drills at the combine because of that. I think there are better options if you're looking for a long term backup.

I would rather sign a veteran qb who has some nfl experience to back up luck when that time comes. I was listening to s podcast and they were saying in 2020 there are a lot of QB who will be available with some nfl experience.

I live an hour from Beaver stadium and i love the kid but i'm not so sure about him in the NFL.

No disrespect to the kid but doesnt fit our plans as an offense and i've seen too many similar QBs not be able to make the transition.  But, in saying that, what do I really onow about building an NFL roster? Not too much really.

    • Real NBA pundits, coaches and execs were parroting "Jump shooting teams cannot win in the NBA" and "You need low post presence to win" just like... 5-10 years ago. Data and analysis about the value of the 3 has been available for close to 20 years. You underestimate just how married people are to their old ways and how hard it is to teach the old dog new tricks, especially when this is all they've known for their whole lives and now you are telling them what they've been taught for 20-30-50 years is wrong. Some will adapt and flourish, most won't...    My favorite quote that encapsulates perfectly the situation comes from a field that is MUCH more open to new ideas than football - science. And even there, there is a long history of resistance to new ideas. Physicist Max Planck once said "Science advances one funeral at a time". What he meant was that science doesn't advance by convincing the old guard that the new ideas are correct, but by the old timers just dying out and the new generation unburdened by emotional attachments to the old stuff being allowed to just follow where the evidence points to.    BTW I do NOT think the run game is meaningless or that it doesn't have a role to play in today's game. It is extremely important in situational football, in end of game situations, in goalline and 3d and 4th and short situations, etc. I just do not think it serves anyone any good perpetuating myths about its importance for things that have been repeatedly shown to not correlate to run-game success.     
    • For those that wanted Suh, hes off the board.   https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/21/ndamukong-suh-expected-to-sign-with-buccaneers/
    • The problem is the secondary is really hard to watch from the angles we are getting on TV and the fans general population doesn't dissect in detail what's happening ... they just see the big plays - the interceptions, the big pass-breakups, or a big missed tackle etc... they don't see when the QB doesn't even throw the ball because of perfect coverage or threat of playmaking by players like Hooker. The real insane stat here is 1 reception per 130 snaps... that's like ... once every 2.5 games or thereabout... there is a value to what Hooker provides both as a playmaker and as a deterrent for opposing QB's even thinking about throwing deep. 
    • My gripe with Stitches view is these coaches have access to this same data that you're quoting. They have all kinds of stat men in the building with them.  I don't think they are oblivious to any of this stuff.  Then you've got actual football coaches in this forum like Coffedrinker and Princeton Tiger and very few of them really down play the importance of running the football and what it does for your passing game.  I just can't buy that all of them are just merely being stubborn and ignoring the data for age long myths.  I think there's a better reason why coaches still keep that mantra.
    • he got off to a slow start last year, but everyone had to notice his interception on eli and his solid play overall by the end of the year   fans just go by what they see, and that can change a lot week to week.
