I agree with you completely... but say for instance we get another good pick out of an Abraham deal, do we really want to run the risk of not grabbing up Cutler before he's taken off the board?
That's what I'm saying, and isn't Winston supposedly just as good as D'Brick? I know Bradway had interest in him when the Senior Bowl was in session and that was probably because he fell in love with Cutler.
By the way, we all know that INT's can happen because of WR-QB communication. Vandy has at best so-so receivers. I think we can attribute some of those INT's to them but I'm sure alot of those came from a guy trying desperately to carry his team and forcing it in there. It's a noble characteristic and for Cutler it happend to be true. Most times it worked... and a handful of times it bit him in the ass.
Though, I love Leinart as a prospect his recent elbow injury as well as his shoulder sugery scare me off a little bit. Let's just say I'm Chad-shocked and I want a completely healthy shoulder with a bang to it. I have a feeling Cutler's decision making skills will get better anyway. I just can't see how Cutler makes it past Oakland and even if he did there's a few other teams that I think would be happy to grab him up. I mean he is putting on display why people are talking up his game so much. And it's getting to the point that after Vince posted bad wonderlick scores that Tennessee is ready to draft Cutler. Chow supposedly doesn't want to center his offense around Vince. The scary thing is Chow and Fisher have nothing but love for Cutler and got to coach him all week. That's the scary part.
Agreed. My question to everyone who is in love with Cutler is this: what is the Jets' answer to the gaping hole at LT? Adrian Jones is a serviceable RT at best. It seems like the Jets have some real viable choices at QB (Chad, Shaub, Rivers, Ramsey, etc.) but they don't have one at the premier position of LT. Their only real option is D'Brick who, by all indications, should be sitting there at 4.
There's no way you can honestly say you think that Ramsey or even unproven Rivers who has questionable arm strength are "real viable" options. Schaub I can see as a good replacement, but the latter two aren't anymore of an improvement at the QB position as Jones is serviceable at LT, which I disagree with. I think Jones played well and I think he'll play even better. Honestly, I think it's time the Jets made a splash with their team and drafting a lineman isn't exactly over-hauling or blowing up the offense. All that's doing is filling a hole when the biggest hole in my opinion is at the QB position. I know all of the benefits of drafting D'Brick, but I still think it's just as big a risk as taking Cutler and plus I think Winston would be just as good and he'd be available around the pick that we'd get for trading Abe.
I can't help to think though that the Jets might trade up to number 1 and take Bush though. That'd be sweet.
