    Chris Brown is an excellent football writer and knows his stuff as a former college player. His book Smart Football is a must read. Here he's got a very fair critique and comparison of the top 3 QBs in this week's draft.

    Well worth your time to read.

    When it's all said and done Zach Mettenberger will probably be the best QB in this class and he'd be a perfect fit in Arizona under Bruce Arians.

    2013:I am not sure Wilson is in the top tier yet.
    2012: Flacco not top tier(though he played like it in January)
    2011: Eli not top tier
    2007: Eli not top tier
    2005: ben wasn't top tier yet
    2001: Brady wasn't top tier yet

    Agree, though Manziel is very intriguing also for a team like us where we can afford to roll the dice.

    Mettenberger is a statue who makes very poor and immature life choices. pass.

    Absolutely. As I said somewhere else, the team that ignores the crap and just drafts Teddy will be a happy team.

    All those teams had pretty good defenses that were balanced out by above average QB play.

    if i was the jets i would jump on bridgewater at 18 if i'm cinci i jump on him also...do not want that kid in our division...his fall on draft boards well it's rediculous...someones gonna get a major steal

    if we needed a qb i'd pounce on that action at 19 before the commish could even say we are on the clock

    the quote was historically great, the only 2 Ds to win w/ historically great Ds and non elite QBs in recent times were the Ravens and Bucs.

    Interesting to hear #Jets keeping in regular contact with QBs slated to go in the first round. Maybe in case one falls. Maybe serious at 18

    Don't be surprised if Tom Savage emerges 3-4 years from now as the top QB from this class.

    No, I'll be very surprised.

    Teddy took a 2 day visit with the Pats (U of L OLB Marcus Smith was on that visit as well). I could see them moving up if Teddy falls far enough to take the heir apparent to Brady, while moving Mallet somewhere (perhaps in that very trade).
