If Hurts ends up sucking, who cares no harm no foul, we move on after the season. With the last one who still can’t even walk yet again we were locked in to paying ridiculous money.

Well, I mean, we spent a premium draft pick on him, and he was presumably a factor in the decision to trade our current QB at the time. Not that Wentz was necessarily the cure to what ails us either, but the harm to me is clearly more than nothing if Hurts is a flop.

Just the 14th overall pick DE getting pancaked by a TE, nothing to see here....

And also Eric Wilson, whose knocks coming in were he couldn't tackle or play the run. Not quite an encouraging start...

Just here to break up the Hurts talk.  

At this point would your rather have DeVonta Smith/Landon Dickerson 

-or-

Micah Parsons/Rondale Moore and pick 82 (used on Dyami Brown btw)

 

I'll say first and foremost, Howie had to do that trade-up from 12 to 10.  If he had passed on Justin Jefferson and allowed the Giants to take DeVonta Smith in back-to-back drafts he'd have been vilified by the fans/media -- and for good reason.  He might be in the basement by now.

Having said that, if I was armchair Howie I'd have let Parsons go to DAL and Smith go to the Giants, traded back with CHI to #20, then with how the board played out I would have drafted:

#20 -- Newsome or Farley CB 

#37 -- Trevon Moehrig S

#70 -- Hunter Long TE (Ertz would have been released)

#84 -- Wyatt Davis OG

 

Then you have either 3 or 4 1st round picks for 2022 in a deeper college draft class.  Still nothing at WR, but ammunition for a true rebuild.

Your point, which started with Hurts, is the NFL is moving to something new, which it is not.  There has always been mobile QB's, I gave you the names.

Fact is, you win in the NFL passing from the pocket, and no matter how many times it tries to change, it never will.

I didn’t say you don’t win from the pocket first.

We're still going in circles. Momentum is difficult to quantify, sure it's a factor but trying to pin that the primary reason for why a mobile QB played well in a given game is still a reach. There's an ebb and flow to many games in this league, there's nothing unique about mobile QBs that allow them to benefit from stoppages of the game. That the niners defense allowed 28 pts (including a kick return and bomb to Jones) up until that point has little to do with Kaeprnick, agreed? Are you agreeing with me that it's a team sport and judging QBs primarily on wins/losses isn't ideal? Do you agree that Kaep played well enough to win and he didn't lose that game? 

Well considering kaepernick threw a pick in the first half. I think Colin Kaepernick played pretty mediocre to below average for 35 minutes of that game. So he had a pick. And he and the offense failed to score touchdowns in the red zone (twice in the first half). He and the offense also had multiple three and outs that gave the ravens short fields of 49 and 56 yards. 

defense not play well either. Neither did the special team. However pretending like the only reason they were down 28 to 6 was because of the Niners defense and special team when karpernick couldn’t convert touchdowns in the red zone, he had an interception and his offense giving the niners short field position didn’t play into that score is ridiculous. He was below average for the first 35 mins of that game just like the defense and offense.

So I don’t think he played well enough to win cause he was below average for 35 mins along with the niners defense and offense. This is like saying mcnabb played well enough to win the nfc title game vs the cardinals cause second half he was good meanwhile first half they scored 6 points and looked bad and got down 24-6. It wasn’t just mcnabb either cause defense stunk and special teams wasn’t great. However just because you play well for 25 minutes of a 60 minute game does not mean I think you played well enough for an entire game to justify winning. Games are 60 mins and not 25. Maybe if he, the defense and ST showed up prior to the delay they are super bowl champions.

Josh Allen has 1641 rushing yards in 45 starts.  Jalen Hurts will pass that in 20 starts.

Allen averages 547 rushing yards per year, Rich Gannon ran for 529 yards his age 35 season.

I feel like you continue to miss the point.

Ah I see. That's weird, I thought games were 60 min long and not 35. My apologies.

So is that what the Superdome is called now?  If so I didn't realize that.

Now is that from Lil Ceasers or something else?

You know Cole Hamels had a couple of good years but he was no Bob Gibson. 

Brian Dawkins was a great player for this team but he really was just a poor man's Ed Reed.

Lane Johnson couldn't hold a candle to Steve Hannah.

Zach Ertz would be embarrassed to be on the same field as Mike Ditka.

Brian Westbrook would be body shamed by Marcus Allen. 

Flip Wilson would cry for his mama if he ever had lunch at Central high with Bill Cosby.

Frank McNuttin stance was always a better QB than Kerry Collins . 

:roll:

 

Eric Allen and Troy Vincent were Ahright but come on now dawg ... they wuzznt Neon .

Oh I thought games are 60 minutes long not 25 minutes after a delay where he played well but the first 35 minutes he played poorly.  I guess in your world we just dismissed the first 35 minutes for that Super Bowl because it wasn’t good for Colin Kaepernick. So if you play poorly for 60% of the game it’s ok because the last 25 mins of the game he played well…. Got it. 

so because he played well for 25 minutes of a 60 minute game it’s justified him not playing well for 35 minutes of a 60 minute game and a reason the niners also found themselves down 28-6.

That the NFL is moving more toward mobile QBs and that their mobility and running ability is not a bonus — it’s all part of the evaluation. 

Mobility and running ability is not rushing production. I think where you got off track was when IP asked me about QBs who run better than they passed making deep playoff runs. My point was never about having QBs who run better than they throw. That branched way off from my initial point. I should have corrected it there instead of answering his question. 

Ar no point have I said you don’t need a QB who can win from the pocket.
