    Speculation of Leinart slipping to us...

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

    "TEAM LEINART BRACING FOR SLIDE?

    At a time when former USC tailback Reggie Bush is dealing with an unwelcome distraction that could disrupt his plan to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, his teammate who could have been the first pick in 2004 could now be facing a slide conjuring memories of the Aaron Rodgers plunge in 2005.

    A source close to the Leinart camp tells us that Matt's handlers have accepted the reality that the Titans won't be drafting their guy at No. 3, barring a dramatic reversal of the current intention to acquire Texas quarterback Vince Young. Per the source, new Leinart agent Tom Condon has attempted to get some kind of an assurance from each of the teams drafting in the top five -- but has gotten nothing.

    At No. 4, the Jets are not expected to draft a quarterback. Word is that they are looking to land Alabama's Brodie Croyle later in the day.

    At No. 5, the Packers can't afford to spend another first-rounder on a guy who'll do nothing for them in 2006, especially since Lord Favre is coming back for one more year.

    At No. 6, the 49ers have their quarterback in Alex Smith.

    We'd initially presumed that the Raiders would take Leinart at No. 7, but we're now hearing from multiple sources that they won't.

    The Bills won't touch Leinart at No. 8, unless G.M. Marv Levy is even nuttier than we currently believe.

    At No. 9, there's no way the Lions pounce on Leinart.

    Then we come to the Cardinals at No. 10. Will Denny Green be able to resist drafting a guy who falls into his lap, just like Randy Moss did eight years ago? We've got the Cardinals taking offensive tackle Winston Justice, given the importance of beefing up the group of guys who are going to be charged with keeping those big-money skill-position players alive.

    At No. 11, quarterback is one of the few positions that the Rams have covered.

    At No. 12, we can't see the Browns taking Leinart.

    Then come the Ravens at No. 13. In our current mock draft, we've got them taking Vanderbilt quarterback Jay Cutler. Though we're feeling a little wishy-washy about whether Brian the Brain will stake his future on another first-round signal-caller, it might be hard for the supposed offensive guru to not take Leinart, if he falls into the team's lap.

    And we think that the lowest Leinart would go, if he gets past Baltimore, is Minnesota at No. 17.

    So the 2004 Heisman winner won't fall as dramatically as Rodgers did a year ago, when the Jeff Tedford prodigy plunged from potentially being the No. 1 pick all the way to No. 24. But given that Leinart was the presumptive No. 1 choice in 2005, and that he most likely would have been taken by the 49ers with the first pick, the possibility of sliding to No. 10 or lower translates into millions and millions of dollars of money that will never come back."


    Wouldn't that be nice...

    That's almost funny.

    Norm Chow + Leinart



    I love the convincing arguments they have for teams passing on him LMAO!!!

    "We'd initially presumed that the Raiders would take Leinart at No. 7, but we're now hearing from multiple sources that they won't" OMG!!!!!! WOW!

    "At No. 12, we can't see the Browns taking Leinart" Well if you can't see it happening good enough for me.

    Wow.
    Just. Wow.
    If that really happens, I expect hell to freeze over, pigs to start flying out of Boomer's jiggly butt (one for each team that passes on Leinart out of the top ten), and Madden to rip on Favre for destroying his team.
    PM me if you'd like a sig.

    Yeah, the reasoning they give for about half the picks are bogus. From the way it is written, you would think that the Pakers are picking 17th and a packer fan wrote that. Just plain stupid...

    Thanks Lotza!

    That would be cool. Matt would be the shiznit on our squad. Not likely to happen, but I would be rather excited if it did. Remember, we did not think Moss would fall into our laps & last year Aaron Rodgers slipped a loooong way down

    Every year someone falls farther than expected.

    It is all speculation, see below for my response in the Cutler thread.

    Cutler Falling Also Thread

    The way I see it! There is ONE definite team taking a QB before us and that is Tenn. There are 6 team that are questionable between Tenn and us. I think that 3 teams, Det, NYJ, and StL are most likely to drop from the want list but that still leaves 3 question mark teams and only 2 QBs. Oh ya, and make that only 2 "?s" because Bal falls out if they have McNair from Tenn.


    Houston: QB - No
    New Orleans: QB - No
    Tennessee: QB = YES
    N.Y. Jets: QB - ? Pennington, please... they should be thinking QB if they are not. They might wait one more draft?
    Green Bay: QB - No
    San Fran: QB - No
    Oakland: QB - ? I think they wait until next year to see how Brooks does. Or, was Brooks just insurance?
    Buffalo: QB - No
    Detroit: QB - ? Apparently, Kitna or McCown are the future.
    Arizona: QB - ? They are saying no to the QB, but if Vince is available, with Denny philosophy, Best Available Talent???
    St. Louis: QB - ? They have Bulger, but I heard someone say Linehan wants his own QB.
    Cleveland: QB - No, WHY not though, is Frye the answer.
    Baltimore: QB = ? Yes if they don't get McNair and one of the big three are available. Billick is fed up not with Boller, but with the Hot Seat. New QB needed.
    Philadelphia: QB - No
    Denver: QB - No
    Miami: QB - No
    Minnesota: QB - Yes if big three if not, then LB
    Additions:

    Supposedly, OAK has a young QB that they drafted last year from Az St that they might still be willing to groom behind Brooks, to be the QB of their future????? They are worried that the big three are not better vertical passers??? Those were not my words, that was on ESPN or NFLTA.

    Also, I heard stated that the Bills might be looking for to trade down and maximize their picks. This was on the same show that I got the OAK tidbit.

    Once again all speculation.
