    There are concerns about his commitment to the game, but you don't develop perfect mechanics without a devotion to football.

    But he's an opinionated guy. Injury concerns. That's legit.

    I know most of you guys are Jets or Giants fans but do you guys think Buffalo still trades up for a QB from 12 with their extra 1st this year

    I'm neither a Jets nor Giants fan

    I think Buff wants to trade up but would have to trade an arm and a leg to do so.

    I don't think the Bills are getting into the top 5. I could see them trading up into the top 10 and getting Josh Allen there.

    Rosen: Slight build, slim limbs, durability a big question mark, he'll prob get hurt a lot in the NFL. He was not voted to be captain at UCLA, spoiled rich kid, scouts question how much he loves the game.

    Stay away from him.

    Terrelle Pryor visiting the Jets tomorrow unless he chooses to stay and sign with Seattle, who he's visiting today. Wouldn't be a bad player to bring in on a prove it contract.

    this is all scuttlebutt and nothing of value.

    also, Rosen is actually bigger than Darnold. Rosen is 6'4'' 225 lbs. Tom BRady is 6'4'' 225 lbs

    the "slim build" thing is also overstated.

    With the headcase that is Robby Anderson they should definitely consider signing Pryor.

    Jimmy Graham cannot run anymore FYI

    will still be a hell of a red zone target though

    If I'm the Giants, I extort something out of the Jets.

    The Giants know the Jets want their pick of QB.

    The Giants will take Barkley anyways.

    Let the Jets up to 2 and get some picks from them.

    which addresses a massive need for the packers for the last several seasons. our red zone efficiency has been pretty good but it feels like i've watched at least a dozen drives that should have been touchdowns end in field goals over the last two/three seasons. granted, rodgers was injured this season, but that's retroactive to at least 2015. also significant is the fact that we really need a proven short threat because who knows just how much rodgers' throwing arm has been permanently affected by this second collarbone break.

    packers have been quite weak at tight end for several years now and this move really states the intent of the new gm. i like it.

    Just reading up on all of these qbs and they all have some major flaws. It's such a crapshoot.

    He has a different definition for, "blockbuster trade" than I do.

    Ya for awhiles I was thinking that the Giants should take a QB. But given how questionable they all are, and the fact that we still have a QB who can play, I've gone more towards the idea of addressing other needs.

    Barkley, Chubb, trade down. Interesting.
