There is a definite vision for this team; we just aren't privy to it.
Have some faith, if you have any left to give...Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

And there are plenty of good SEC quarterbacks. The Manning's have three Super Bowls between them and one is one of the 10 best to ever play the position. Cam Newton has also been pretty damn good. WHEN Johnny Football wins the position in Cleveland ... *SIX (Manziel, Newton, Manning, Manning, Cutler, Stafford) of the 32 starting QBs in the NFL on day 1 will be from that conference. That is a pretty large percentage from just one conference. The other conferences will have 5 for PAC 12, 4 for ACC and 3 for the Big 12 and Big 10 (there is one — Michael Vick — from the former BCS Big East).
*This is assuming Schaub starts in Oakland, Keenum in Houston, Vick in New York, McCown in Tampa and all three FIRST ROUND rookies at their new homes.

down the field think these days. NFL offenses are all about system which is now dink and dunk and
very good athletes to do the RAC. Show me a Randy Moss type receiver in the league today. QB's don't
just take seven steps drops and rifle the ball as far as they can heave it a anymore. After being down
on Bridgewater I looked at his tape and I like what I see. This kid will put on another 10 or 15 pounds
and be more than big enough . As for the arm Erin Rodgers was called weak armed coming out. A few
mechanical changes can make all the difference here. I watched Manziel and I believe he's going to be
bust in the NFL. He rarely took the ball from center and even in the shotgun he would look one
receiver an then out of there he goes. He's one of these college legends THAT RARELY EVER
pan out in the NFL. Fiinally I like TB's demeanor. He is a very calm guy who believes in himself. He reminds
me in that way of Russel Wilson. That guy plays the game with his head and I believe that is what
we are going to get with Bridgewater. Remember this guy before the combine was predicted to
be the number one pick in the entire draft at one time and by far the best prospect at QB. I really
believe he may win the starting job from day one and with AP being his safety blanket may
really surprise alot of people...

The top 10 QB's finished with around 12-15 YPC. That generally doesn't scream dink-and-dunk offense, but whatever. Think what you want.Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

Btw a Post is about an 11 yard route (8 to 11 depending on flat vs. skinny route options). Which is why I say, the post and slant routes are more important in Turner's offense than the deep fly, 18 yard come back or deep drag.
