    Re: Quarterback Quandry (Possible Solution)

    Marrdro: As usualy one of your well-though out posts as compared to some people who just post "Childress Sucks" type of thing.
    As I read your post I tend to disagree with the need of WR. Now I know everyone will chomp down on me for that statement but I think we've got some good WR. Not great, but good. We just don't have a QB who can get the ball to them consistantly.
    I agree with the fact that we need a good defensive tackle, but I would also add someone to either replace Birk or McKinney a year or two down the road.
    I think we have a good backup in BB. Maybe in TJ (notice I said maybe...) Dump Holcomb. I would like to see Anderson or even draft a QB and allow BB to become the starter if TJ doesn't work out. I just think that the price may be too high for us though to pick up Anderson.
    I guess we'll just have to let this play out and see what direction the "Triangle of Authority" takes.

    I think you may want to include the following to this list..

    JP Losman - Trent Edwards will be given the reins and JP is basically going to become available for the right price.
    • [li]Mobile[/li]
      [li]Big arm[/li]
      [li]Young but still got an upside[/li]
      [li]Has experience[/li]


    Chris Simms - Should be able to snag him for a decent price and he is a gamer..

    Mark Brunnell for a year.

    Do you call Jake Plummer and see if he is interested after a year away from the game?

    David Carr - Don't think he will be retained in Carolina if Fox is shown the door.. did you see the leap for the first down earlier this year.. guy has the heart to win.

    Don't give up on Bollinger or TJ just yet.. but a veteran for a year or two might be the smart play.

    Nice input my friend.

    Although I don't discount Plummer, I left him off for only one reason. So we wouldn't be besieged by inputs about guys that aren't on rosters right now. (i.e. George).

    Plummer could/should be an option for this staff.
    I hope they do inquire.

    Do you think they will want to get rid of Losman?

    The biggest concern with him is whether he can stay healthy.
    His "weak" arm doesn't bother me as much because he is accurate and to be honest with our run, we don't need a guy with a bullet for an arm... just someone who can create a threat and I believe Pennington's accuracy and smarts would do that.

    I would also put McNabb right up there as a top choice for all the reasons pointed out above.

    I think that with either one of these guys, we would do well.
    I also think our O-line could protect them especially since our opponents would have to be dealing with stopping our run AND pass, keeping them very occupied.

    Keep T-Jack and let him learn under a vet as our backup quarterback.
    Then hold onto Bollinger for our 3rd.
    Focus on obtaining one stellar WR and DE and we would be set for a respectable season.
    Ok, again a quality input that gives rationale for Pennington.
    I will add him to the list.
    Were do all think he should be, after McNabb maybe?

    Nice post my friend.
    I say we put Pennington number one on the list.
    We sign him to a 3 year deal.
    We then do whatever we have to do get Matt Ryan in the draft.
    We let Ryan take his time and learn under Pennington.
    I believe Pennington would be a good mentor.
    He does not come across as an athlete that puts I in front of team.

    Thanks for you kind comment my friend.

    I knew I would/could open a can of worms with the WR and DE comment, however it was a relavent comment for my point on the status of the team.

    I do like our WR, but believe one more good Vet would really help us out, especially if we decide to go with a young QB again next year.

    Additionally, I am a fan of BB but have elected to stick behind our starter for obvious reasons.
    Additionally, I tried to stay away from our QB's in this topic as it is being discussed in another thread.

    My lineup would be

    QB X
    TJ
    BB (or a stud rookie if we draft one).

    Again, good input.

    Seriously though.

    I do like Anderson.
    If we got him we would not need to draft a qb.

    For the right price, I believe so.. the other reason I think they will move him, is he has a starter mentality and from the little I have heard, didn't like the thought of giving up his throne on the depth chart after only a few games.

    Plus you have this working within the Bills, Marv Levy isn't getting any younger and he wants to build a winner there in a hurry.. they need depth along the defensive front.. trading a decent pick and a decent DE with some potential may be just what the doctor ordered to obtain JP.

    Just a hunch that is... Not to mention that JP has either 2 or 3 years left on his rookie deal so it might be peak value time to move him.

    Nice reply.

    Well, I almost put him in there, however, I couldn't cover everyone.
    My fingers were getting sore.

    No doubt - nice Wall o' Text there, Marr.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I would also agree with putting Pennington above McNabb.
    I think he would be a great influence to have for our other QB's.
    As much as I like McNabb, there is something that rubs me a little bit in the wrong way.
    I am not sure if this is because of the media's manipulation of him or the player himself.
    I recognize that is a completely subjective response so I did not want to include it in my feelings on the QB issue, but if given the choice I would go with Pennington.

    Pennington?
    PENNINGTON?

    Dear God, no.
    I'd rather have Jake Plummer than that weak-armed walking injury report.

    Pennington?!?!?

    If you thought people bitched about not throwing deep when Brittle Brad was taking snaps last year, wait until they get a load of Mr. Can't Throw An Out Pass.
