I will start with I was never a JB fan and even after the 5-2 start I was waiting for the wheels to fall off. However, besides Tua I would take JB over anyone on that list so far. JB is a model pro and the only negative thing ever to come from him was thru a coach that let him vent about being replaced. Has to be hard on JB bc any other 2nd year starter would throw 18tds and 6int would have countless articles written about his potential. I think we all know his ceiling is not far away but he is still better than all these guys.
I like the nickname. Crazy thing is I knew what you were referencing immediately but I don’t think cheese when someone says Wisconsin. I think beer and Harley Davidson.
This duo has the potential to be better than 2006. Not sure if either of them will reach 1000 yards tho with Hines needing snaps as well. Rivers likes to throw to the RBs. It depends on how many big runs each guy can manage.
I too went back and double checked... a number of good evaluations. I’m remembering more of the computer mocks that so many members here love to play. They were less accurate on Darius. So that left lots of people here very not happy that night. Add Smith, Turay and Lewis and made for a long night here on the website.
Took a while to smooth things over here. A long bumpy ride....
Teams have won and gone to SB's and even more have reached the championship game without a great QB. However, in today's NFL if you don't have a elite or very good QB your at a significant disadvantage when going against your opponent who has a elite QB.
However that doesn't mean Eason cant be a excellent QB. I have no idea if he'll ever make it as a starter or not. He's played only 1 season in college because of losing 1 season due to injury and another by being a transfer. But he has the tools, size and a Big arm, and thats something you can't teach.
I personally like the pick and his potential.
