Start. They spoke about petrino and art discussing if they get a QB.....is everyone committed to possibly sitting him for a year. Is Brohm really so good to get in the first round so we can sit him for a year and let the 3 stooges fight for the start next season?:D

Lifes a game U gotta play while U can!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Petrino's comments are an indication that he is not necessarily married to the idea of potentially drafting Brohm. The thought of drafting a guy who's already spent three years in the system having to spend another entire year is puzzling. If Brohm's claim to fame is that he's the most pro ready QB, why sit him for an entire year? To re-learn the offense?????

For people comparing the possibility of Brohm sitting for a year to Vick and Palmer, you couldn't be more off base. The circumstances Vick and Palmer were drafted under were completely different. Both Vick and Palmer were far and away the consensus #1 QB and #1 overall pick on the board in their respective drafts. While Brohm is considered a top 3 QB, he's not quite cracking the top 5 players and could fall outside the top 10. Both Vick and Palmer were going into brand new offensive schemes, while Brohm, you would think, wouldn't need to sit an entire year having played for Petrino for 3 years. Additionally, while Palmer and Vick sat for a year, they were both behind QB's that were enjoying a measure of success. All 3 of the Falcons current QB's haven't proven much in the Falcons uniform.

If Palmer and Vick were in this year's draft class, they'd still be #1 overall picks.

Ok, so you've brought your ignorance over here too... Again, the reason is because College Football != NFL Football. College defenses != NFL Defenses. College speed != NFL speed.

It takes even the most pro-ready QBs a year to get up to speed on reading NFL defenses and understanding the speed of the game. Palmer is a good example, because he was one of the most NFL ready guys to ever come out.

Palmer, actually, was a horrible example. If you thought before you spoke, you would see that Palmer sat the entire season because Kitna was a better QB at the time. Kitna went on to have arguably his best season with the Bengals in 2003 and led them to 6 more wins than they had the year before. THAT is why Palmer sat.

Vick sat because Chandler was the better QB (Vick had 2 starts due to injury).

Rivers sat because Brees was the better QB.

The idea of sitting a QB isn't done solely to nuture a rookie. If there's not a better option available, you can believe that QB will be a starter during year one.

JaMarcus Russell was about to get some serious playing time, actually ended up making his debut, then the Raiders won two games in a row. Now he's back to third string.

Vince Young stat for a while, then assumed the starting position during year 1. Same with Jay Cutler. Same with Matt Leinart. These guys are put into the starting lineup when there's not a better option available. Them sitting had less to do with them not being ready and more to do with a better option ahead of them.

You can continue to go back through first round QB's and more often than not, they are starters within the first year because of the lack of production from the guys ahead of them on the depth chart. It's not a hard and fast rule to sit 1st round rookie QB's their first year as most guys don't sit for an entire year.

The fact is, the guys labeled as being not-ready, or needing significant coaching, are very much in play for the Falcons come draft day. Petrino has pegged next season for one of teaching for whoever the Falcons draft? What he'd need to teach Brohm at this point, is lost on me.

Maybe you know what more Brohm has to learn about the offense???

LOL...this is so funny how the tables are turning and Woodson hasn't even lit the combine up yet....Brohm fans are scambling!!!!!
