    IMO he is a solid QB with a good arm... but he is aging and is prone to drive and game killing mistakes... so I'd pass.

    I highly doubt we will see any make shift QB's next year. We'll find our young Gun.

    If this young gun is a rookie, unfortuanatly, IMO he'll have to sit and watch Gus for a year. If we score on a guy 2-4 year veteran like a David Carr, he'll most likely go into camp and battle for the starting job.

    Keep in mind, we went out and got Cleo for a reason, so he shouldn't be so easily over looked.

    I would only look into signing Collins if we also drafted a QB to wait in the wings, or even compete with him for a starting job.

    Collins has Moss and Porter to throw to, so of course he is gonna put up some big #'s. He will likely get cut after the reason because he is really old and he will save the Raiders 11 million. No way would I want him because of his age.

    Kerry Collins is brutal. A large number of Raider fans are saying the same things about Collins as many of the Dolphins fans are saying about Gus. I thought you guys didn't want to recycle journeyman quarterbacks anymore? No to Kerry Collins, and no to that bust David Carr who everyone keeps touting.

    2 yrs too late. I was hoping Spielman would have pursued him instead of Feeley. After all, pressure was placed on him to win now, and he had a roster full of veterans. He was the logical choice prior to last season. Not anymore, though.

    Collins can be good if given time in the pocket. He has a good arm. He does make good decisions if not hurried. However if you can't protect him he is horrible. Sorry I am going to have to pass on Collins

    I'd take him for a year if we got a rookie QB. Heck with our team as it is and if Kerry performed we could go 9-7 | 10-6 or something around there.

    Other than a caretaker and mentor for a year, no thanks.

    He has more weapons in Oakland at the reciever position so what makes you think he's going to suceed with our recievers. Don't want him.

    Cut Gus, sign Collins, draft a QB.

    I like that plan.

    "Care to explain that?"



    I was responding to Jimi's response, I did a bad job of setting it up. So what do you guys think about Patrick Ramsey? Would you like to have him on our team?

    I wouldnt mind bringing him in and giving him a shot to compete with someone else but i'm not super high on him. He is tough though, I'll give him that.

    Ramsey was a first round pick and never lived up to his potential because of Spurier who was playing college football in the pros and had Ramsey take a beaten. He has one of the strongest arms in the league I think when he is healthy. He is also young and their is no reason to keep him when they will have Brunell as the backup and Jason Campbell the starter who they drafted in this year's draft.

    Kerry is a has been, no more QB 3-5 years removed from their glory days, we need a veteran QB that can still lead a team (gas in the tank) and doesnt loss games with his lack of composure in the pocket and reading defenses (gus) we need a Gannon type as far as late in his years but still had the mind and tech to run a team and have the respect of the entire team. I really dont believe chambers, Mcmicheal, and booker really have confidence in Gus, let go Sage (Saban doesnt really want him if he did he would let him start) and draft a QB possible 2 if we had more pics, keep Lemona and build not recycle QB's.

    Saban is going to ride and die with Gus and let Lemon prepare for next year, just like in a way with Manny W., Poole, S. Mitchell redshirting for this year to be the foundation for years to come (Speaking of not rushing them into playing just cause we are not performing or may need them)

    Anything is an improvement. But dude he stinks as an NFL QB. And why do you want a 30 something washed up has been? Please we need a young QB to groom and who will grow.

    Collins makes sense if you want another journeyman washed up QB that will get booed off the field by whatever team he plays for.

    Having a big arm, and having a brain are too different things ( See Jeff George)
