    What if on Saturday Barkley CLEARLY out plays Luck ?
    Say Andrew throws several picks and looks lost out there.
    Barkley on the other hand lights it up and beats Sanford badly.
    And what would we do with all those T shirts everyone got ?
    Just hypothetical but it's college football and anything can happen.
    Blow for Barkley ? :err:

    You can't really base it on one game...

    Anyone can have a really bad game.

    I really don't like USC´s QBs and the correct hash tag is #LayFlatForMatt

    Matt Barkley is going to be good, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him go back to USC next year. He'll have a lot of returning weapons coming back next year and he's not passing Luck this year. He's also unlikely to pass Landry Jones too, so I could see him go back next year and become the top QB for the upcoming draft class.

    Anyways, Barkley won't pass up Luck based on one game. Unless Luck gets hurt or totally falls flat on his face the rest of the way, he'll be the top QB picked.

    Very unlikely that Luck looks lost. Ever.

    I don't like Barkley have a bad feeling about him. I like USC but I don't like the QBs from USC., back in 2006 when everybody was talking about Matt Leinart and how great he was going to be in the NFL I was not buying it either.

    I don't think it would change much, but it would honestly shock me if Barkley outplays Luck.

    keep on mind that they don't play each other....they play the other team's defence....anyway, lets say Barkley plays better in this game, cool. We might not get a chance to draft Luck anyway so I'm glad there're 3 QB's that might be worth taking high in april....if we don't draft a QB in the first round in this draft then we nevee will.

    Ozzy rules!!

    You may be correct but I say let the season play out before we annoint him our savior.
    We have some other options depending on where we draft and who the new coach is.
    It's not like we are one player away from being good. Being this high in the draft order means a high pick in every round so our 2nd will be low 30's and probably a 1st round talent.
    Say luck goes 1st to someone else. Do we throw in everything to trade up ? Or draft the 2nd best QB.
    Or trade down for extra pick's and have a mid 1st and 2 seconds and an early 3rd.
    You can still get a very good QB plus 3 impact players.
    This senerio may look attractive to say Cowher who can rebuild the team in his image in just one draft and free agent period.
    Being a Miami Dolphin fan we have been dissappoint by QB's over and over and want a Marino type at all cost. I understand and feel the same.
    But , a new coach may not have the same priority as we all do.
    Just something to consider.

    1 game will not change my opinion. Andrew Luck can go out their and throw 5 ints tomorrow ( not likely) and matt barkley can throw for 350 and 5 tds, and i am still hands down taking andrew luck.

    Actually if you really want Luck that bad maybe a few poor games and he slides down to us at 3.
    If the Colts know Mannings coming back and the Rams are sold on their QB Bradford maybe Luck screwing up would be perfect for us.

    That would also take away all the pressure to be our immediate savor and the kid can just do his thing without all the unrealist expectations.

    I want Luck as our future QB, like everyone else, but if we cant have him I want Jones or RG3, im still undecided about which one I would prefer. What I am sure of is that I dont want Barkley, IMO he will be a big bust in this league. #Suck4Luck

    zero chance he slides to 3, let alone 2. he will be taken 1, the question is, who will be taking him?

    s**t happens. It's football. Injury or a few poor outings and everyone will have to reconsider.

    Look the prefect outcome is we draft Luck and he leads us to the promised land.
    That would be FANTASTIC but life is sometimes cruel. The Fins NEVER catch a break. Everything has to fall perfectly for this to happen. I've been disappionted by this team so often lately I'll be expecting the worse. No Luck ... as usual.

    LUCK WILL BE #1 PICK NO MATTER WHAT... Barkley is nowhere near lucks level and you cant base everything on one game (even though a lot of team seem to base everything on the combine workouts more than the games)

    Probably true but April is 6 months away and things happen.
    Remember Rogers was susposed to go 1 or 2 and went 20th I believe. Same with Brady Quinn .
    Things came up in the pro days and compounds that were red flags and teams backed away.
    Big mistake in Rogers. Not so on Quinn. I'm hoping for the best case scenario but nothing is for certain.

    They have a pro SFL thread and this is just a counter point so to speak.

    Honestly it all should be in the Draft forum but we would have little else to debate.

    Tony's gone.

    The team stink's

    Ross is unpredictable.

    Cowher seems interested.

    The player moves no longer interest me.

    That's about it.

    I gotta say "Suck for Luck", "LayFlat for Matt", "Blow for Barkley" and my god "Licking for Landry" all sounds very...gay.

    Exactly.

    No matter what Luck or Barkley do from here on out, Luck will be the surefire #1 overall pick. His resume and prospect status is already so far ahead of the game that it means jack diddly what Luck does the rest of the season.

    There's lots of bored kids here looking for some drama though.

    So if he throw 5 picks this game and 4 next week then he fails a drug test and gets a DUI while soliciting a prostitute it's set in stone ?

    Nothing is set in stone my friend. Not even this guy. I could live with Barkley.

    what's funny is fishfanmiami just 2 weeks ago didn't want to talk about any of this draft stuff... and was the lead horse for the mediocrity machine of rooting for the team "no matter what".. trying to tell us what a "fan" he is. And how awful the SFL crowd is for thinking about the draft already

    funny that he's starting threads like this just a week+ later, and has already given up on the season by reading his posts of total frustration with the team.

    kids

    lmao

    Some bored adults too.

    I so glad you guys all know the end of the story in advance and are planning our Luck parade though downtown Miami.

    There is a 100 page thread expounding all his vurtues.

    Cann't you guys even have a discussion on the possibility we DON"T get this guy ?

    Your setting yourself up for a major disappointing on down the road but that's your call.

    Still rooting for a win every Sunday. Still frustated with the team play and coaching. NEVER said SFL guys were not true fans just did not then or now like the loser aditude of wishing and rooting for the Dolphins to lose. As the loses mount I don't think it's wrong to discuss draft possiblities.
    But thanks for the kind words bag man.

    You got me there . I'm always optimistic when the new season starts and until proved other wise.
    That didn't take long this year.
