    QB's are a gamble in the draft. Unless you know for sure like Peyton. Quinn could be like Tim Couch for all we know.....I'm not really interested in this QB class. We need to trade down if possible or take Landry. Sure AP is great, but his injury issues cause some speculation.
    Any player can be a bust.
    Teams have to take a risk with any player they select.
    In certain cases, some team that select top notch talent may not be the best situation for that particular player due to poor coaching or poor players who are needed to support that player...

    AP can be a bust. Quinn can be a bust. Russell can be a bust. Landry can be a bust. Johnson can be a bust. Thomas can be a bust. ...

    Who do you like?
    Don't mention them as a possible bust.
    Dismiss it as an extremely unlikely possibility if anyone mentions it.
    Dismiss the cases offered as examples that it could happen, such as Tony Mandarich, Ryan Leaf, etc.
    Use capital letters for emphasis and hyperbole.

    Who don't you like?
    Mention them as a strong possibility of being a bust.
    Use plenty of capital letters to stress the point.
    Add a few exclamation points to drive the point home.
    You make some valid points...however I feel that the QB position is the most risky when it comes to the draft above all other positions.
    Why do you feel the QB position is the most risky?

    Central to the discussion is the definition of 'risk'.
    How do you define 'risky'?
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Re: why can't we get a good qb

    First off, Childress is set on Jackson.
    This is his chance to show that he can produce another great starting QB. He could finally shake any doubt that his faith in McNabb was just a fluke.

    Tarvaris is our starter.

    I will entertain the thought though.
    I'll ask, like so many others have; who would we trade up for?
    The only way we could get Russell is if the Raiders picked Johnson, and then we'd be giving up too many draft picks for a QB who doesn't fit Childress's style of offense.
    That leaves Quinn, who could very easily fall to # 7 anyway. Certainly too great a risk to trade up for.

    The Vikings may wind up taking a QB in the draft.
    It will just be a later round pick-up.
    We'll all find out soon enough.

    russell has the physical tools, but like culpepper, the game doesnt develop mentally for him..his football iq is brutal

    quinn played at a good school, with good players, and beat up on alot of crappy teams..when he played in big games against big teams (there were very very few times when he played against quality teams), his performances were less than impressive
    Where is your proof of that?
    Are you just stereotyping?
    Fact is, Quinn STUNK against the Tigers...while JaMarcus lit up the ND defense in the same bowl game!
    Quinn also had about 2 seconds to get the ball off if we are talking about the same game.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!
