Chances we go QB in FA

Before I even start this discussion...please do not say Redman is the future or Shockley is the future. If you believe that, it's cool...but the point of this is to analyze possible FA QB pickups.

With that said...

I think if the Browns will take less than a 1st rnd pick for Derek Anderson we should seriously consider that...or maybe trade down for 2 1st rnd picks and use on on him.

other than DA...

who are some possible FA QBs you guys think would be a good fit.

and Mcnabb will be with the eagles...so don't even get that one started again :(

No free agent, I would rather draft a 3rd or 4th round QB lwt him work with the practice squad for a year or 2. Start Shockley and let Harrington be the back up one more year. Redman is a FA so he should be gone. For all the simple minded fans in here that want Redman to start dont understand football in the way that stats are over inflated because of the circumstances a round the games he played in. Redmans arm would fall off if he had to more than 8 games a year.

i want us to pick up redman.

lol yea no FA qb's other than redman.

yea. redman and Shockley battle for starter. harrington blows, and leftwich has a slow release, PLUS he is not mobile, PLUS he is injuryprone.

agreed. Redman/Shockley 08. lets go.

ive read up on that mularkey person, and i hope he is not the OC, and we keep Hue Jackson.

and i think either one will make a good QB, and we can draft a late round QB to teach for the future, if DJ doesnt work out. but dont worry that wont happen.:cool:

lol agreed again. i also think we should at least give shockley a chance to compete for the job seeing as he has been on this team longer than any other qb (besides #7). i hope we can keep hue.

man i really wish he didnt get hurt, because i think that he could have turned this season around for us, or atleast put redman in earlier in the season.

i find it funny last year they battled for 2nd string, and DJ got hurt, so redman won by default, and this season they will probably battle for starter. I hope the best player wins.

its also funny that we agree on a good amount of the same stuff.

Are you serious. I may buy that excuse for the Seahawks game, but what were the other circumstances. Chris Redman has bee A really good qb since high school. He was great i college and is showing that he can have a career in the pros. So your next arguement is going to be " but he was cut by the Ravens". True, but it was due to a ruptured disk in his back that many specialist thought would keep him from ever throwing a football again. The fact that he is even playing shows his will and determination. It would be a mistake to let redman go to another team. I would like to see anyone throw a ball with a ruptured disk and a three hundred pound defensive lineman charging you.

lol yea it is funny that we agree. but i think we have to give them both a chance because we havent seen what they have done in the pros. we have seen leftwich and harrington. we saw some redman here and in b-more and he showed us some positives. and w/ qb being a question for us we have to see what we got. you dont want to just cut someone w/o giving them a shot because they may end up being great, or at least good (ie. anderson in cleveland). signing another FA qb would be a waste of money.

thats so true. these days its almost becoming a fad to find late round QBs in the draft, and they become franchise QBs. tom brady and anderson for examples. if DJ ends up great, and he plays for us, then i think we will have a win/ win, and hopefully with TD we can be the pats of the NFC.

josh johnson. or flacco. or henne. but i think johnson is the more sure thing.

no need to for any FA QBs. we have what we need plus a draftee.

i dont want anymore FA qb's. we have enough qb's. draft a rookie and thats it.

Agreed---this guy did not watch the press conference when they were introducing our new coach. I heard the words, "Long term" used over and over. Plan for the future, build stability and so forth.

We now have two junk QB's because of free agency----I believe Joey is a goner. Unfortunately Byron second year is guaranteed, and DJ is nothing but hype IMO. You can't tell me because he starts one year at UGA behind David Green who turned out to be an NFL flop, that DJ is anywhere near ready to step up. Furthermore, I am sick of the running QB, lets get back to basics like the rest of the winners------look at the QB's in the Superbowl, no tricks just plain 'ole drop back read and quick release.

Pfft, I'm no Redman fan but he was by far the best looking QB we had all season long. Even in the preseason I thought he looked way better then Harrington. If anything, keep DJ and Redman and ditch Harrington and Leftwitch. DJ will inevitably get hurt and we cannot risk having to play Joey again...

I am all about drafting a 2nd or 3rd guy and seeing how he does but it should be DJ starting with Redman as backup. ...and whats up with the "simple minded fans" pun? What kind of idiot fan would risk having Joey Harrington start another game. Redman is the best option we have right now, hopefully DJ will be better....
