I am not making a bet on what ifs. All I am saying is how much it would make sense and how much Lombardi liked Mallett, now the GM in Cleveland.
There are too many people here who let the media dictate their opinions. RG3 for example is not worth more than Ryan Mallett. The media made it seem like that because of poorly run teams desperate last year after reaching for who came after Luck, that the QBs taken after Luck were as good of an investment. Nope. They weren't.
Yes, Lombardi trading back to #29 when the #5 is the same as #25 would end Lombadi's reign in Cleveland. lol. How does that make sense? This would be the IDEAL time to trade back with the depth of this draft.
I know Mt Hurl has a penchant for only understading cupcakes, but Wheatfarmer is making this uncomfortable.
It's Lombardi's job to not be a moron and to read markets. Pretending Weeden, a guy you don't like, wasting a year pretending you do, is why Cleveland has sucked for 20 years.
RG3 for example is not worth more than Ryan Mallett. <<<<This is classic rusty! Now he will back pedal on this, he will distort it, blame reading comprehension and in a couple of months he will deny ever saying it. Instant Classic.
You think RG3 was worth 3 future drafts and Mallet entering 2013 without a blown out leg, far cheaper, etc, is worth less? LOL!!!
Mallett isn't a run first QB and isn't one play away from losing why he's perceived as good in the first place, Corky. Mike Vick is done, too. Funny how you buy into that kind of QB and then mock me. lol
How is a prospect in 2012 that was a 1st rd pick somehow worth more than 1st rd prospect (without a blown out leg), worth less? That 1 year somehow makes Mallett worth less? LOL!
The Skins got absolutely taken to the cleaners for what they gave up for a trendy run first QB in RG3.
Taken to the cleaners. Leave it to you to think destroying the next 3 drafts with the cap not going up until 2015 was a good move, especially now where a running QB has a blown out leg.
"Instant Classic" is right. Mt Hurl = LOW IQ on display and in rare form.
You don't watch football, do you? I get it now - you just google a few things, watch some highlights, play some video games, read a magazine...it explains things, it's now clear. Thanks.
Here I'll help you - RG3 can make every throw on the football field and does regularly. He is accurate and has no trouble going to his 2nd, 3rd or 4th options with accuracy. Not many people can do that, I'll take that over an Andrew Luck that eye balls Reggie Wayne or whoever his first option is as the corner steps in front of the throw. RG can deliver the ball in so many different ways it's sick...need heat on it? No problem. Touch? Yup. A nice trajectory that falls over the reciever's shoulder? Done.
The fact that this kid can run is a shame, it will end his career earlier than it needs to. His head coach should put an electric dog collar on him and zap him every time he steps over the line of scrimmage.
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but did you try to go back in time and suggest that Mallett's trade value is better than an RG3 with a blown leg? Because when RG3 was traded for, he didn't have that blown out leg you mentioned...doesn't even pertain to the discussion or point you're trying to make. And let's get something straight as well - Mallett wasn't a lock to go in the first round just because your binky Lombardi said so...the guy went in the third...a rather huge difference. And since that time all he has done is proven that is where he should of been selected.
And what is your infatuation for Mike Vick? You like to toss that name around as much as you like to talk NY Jet football...you troll. Just a suggestion...stick to stocking the shelves with Tylenol...don't open the bottle and ingest them (its bad for your liver and brain apparently).
