    Culpepper's replacement???

    OK, 23 pages that Culpepper is leaving.
    How about we talk about some people that could replace him.
    Here's a guy I've been high on and mentioned it a few weeks ago.
    [size=18px]Omar Jacobs - Bowling Green[/size]

    He's just a junior but he's big like Culpepper. 6'4" and 225 pounds. He ran the 40 yard dash in 4.55 which is pretty good.

    Here's what some top scouts say about him:

    Positives:
    I am not going to waste any time in saying that I absolutely love Jacobs and prefer him over Matt Leinart. Jacobs will be a better NFL quarterback. He has a huge arm, good vision, and great mobility. He has gotten the most out of the marginal talent that he has around him.
    He threw for 41 touchdowns as a sophomore and ranked third nationally in pass efficiency. Has shattered all kinds of conference records while still a young quarterback. Also does very well in the classroom, a testament to his dedication on and off the field.

    Negatives:
    While I find very few aspects of his game that do not translate into NFL success, it must at least be mentioned that he has not played against consistent top-flight competition. Only games against Miami and Wisconsin this season would be considered as good, hard-nosed college football defenses.

    Overview:
    Considering that Jacobs completed 30-of-51 passes for a career-best 458 yards and five touchdowns against Wisconsin, it would be safe to say that that the competition argument is a moot point. Jacobs has done all that he can with the team and the players that surround him. He has all the tools necessary to be great in the NFL, even though the learning curve may take a little longer.

    Although I see Jacobs as a solid first-round selection, he probably will not go until the second or third. But whoever lands him will be landing a franchise quarterback.

    Sign Brees or trade for Schaub or David Garrard from Jax.

    Brodie Croyle in round 2. Perfect fit for the WCO.

    Re: Culpepper's replacement???

    Glad you brought this up....IDK if all of you realize this but....We need a Franchise QB now. BJ will do his job for the next year (possibly 2)...but what about in the long run...This Class has alot of talent at every postion...including QB.If we dont land Brees, I say we take a QB with our second pick.(pending what we do with the first and FA)

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Atlanta is never gonna trade Schaub when Vick can't stay on the field. I think ATL is giving Vick 1 more year to improve/develope and if he doesn't, he is gone and Schaub is their guy.

    I see you show what he did as a sophomore. Is that where he is now? If it is, with his dedication off the field, he may not be ready for the NFL. It all depends on how devoted he is to his education.

    I;m thinking we break the bank with all this money we have and go get Kerry Collins, since Moss said he is better then Daunte. :lol:


    I really wish Brees didn't have that shoulder injury. That kind of scares me from him. Otherwise I would love to get him.

    You probably are right and the price may be too high. I do like Garrard from Jax and he did well last year as a fill in starter.
