Haven't read the whole thread, and I don't have full knowledge of the upcoming QB class, but there's something I've been thinking about a lot...
The backup QB. The Kirk Cousins pick was debated, and many of us felt it was a good idea to have a 'home grown' backup. But, with the success of our offense, I'm starting to think it might be a good idea to have a backup that doesn't force Kyle to change the playbook. A QB who can pull off the zone reads, etc. Think about it, if Cousins comes in, I doubt there's any QB draws unless it's deep in the red zone. Kyle would probably be hesitant to run as many PA boots and such with a guy who is a 'pocket passer'. Our strength isn't JUST RG3, it's the offense itself, it's hard to predict, and hard to plan against.
As far as I know, there's plenty of college QBs who run a system like RG3 did at Baylor. They're all turned down because, frankly, they're not as awesome/accurate/ALSO capable of pocket passing as RG3. That's why RG3 is so special. Also consider how strong Alfred Morris has been, and Shanny's zone blocking has proved to work. This should mean receivers are getting wide open regardless of who the QB is, to some extent. If anything makes things easier for that "college style athlete QB who doesn't belong in the NFL", it's our offense. Again, I don't know enough names, besides that Geno guy (and that aint happening), but I believe we've invented an offense that hasn't really been seen before and it might be just the thing for a guy who is otherwise not drafted.
I know people will **** bricks if we draft another QB, but this is important. Let's be realistic, if RG3 has to sit and heal, we are a COMPLETELY different offense. It may be worth a shot to get another 'athlete' QB, a "baby RG3" so to speak. Cousins was drafted because Shanny really liked him and we had nothing else at QB. That was before the coaches saw how successful this style of offense can be. With what we know now, putting Cousins out there is essentially 'starting over', seeing how things work with an offense that's closer to traditional, and in that unfortunate event, I wouldn't have much faith in the 'Cousins offense'. In that case for most teams, the defense is asked to step up, but obviously that isn't our strong point.
So, with that in mind, and with a little imagination, do you guys who know your college players know of any QBs who might fit this criteria? Or perhaps FAs? I almost feel like saying Terrelle Pryor....don't shoot me.
instead of drafting a qb we should just sign Josh Johnson to be Rg3 backup, he would be cheap an we wouldn't have to change our O scheme.
