Aren't we supposed to be going into a vertical offense? Don't get me wrong, he's better than Pryor but I'm not sure it would be the best fit. I know you're talking from a financial standpoint though.

I think Kolb will get a lot of interest from the Jets. Probably better than anyone they have atm.

He was the only QB we had last year worthy of a Job, well maybe Hoyer as well... We will see about that one. But man, Kolb is fragile. In his two years here he was only healthy for like 12-13 games. And he was a dreadfully slow healer. An injury that was suppose to keep him out 4-6 weeks kept him out 12+ weeks...and who knows maybe he is still not fully recovered.

Wish him well, but he is not meant to be a starting QB in the NFL.

The passes he called weren’t the long bombs that Al Davis would have loved, either. Over 86% of the passes thrown were 10 yards or less. That means that only about 14 of every 100 passes thrown were thrown to a spot 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. Even fewer were what many would term a “deep” pass (20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage).


The Bucs lived and died with a plethora of short passes – screens, slants, out routes – in which Josh Freeman would get the ball to his wide receivers, tight end, running back or fullback 3-8 yards downfield and placing it where the receivers could get down the field.


The Bucs did get a fair number of 10+ yard plays out of the short passes but fans looking for Olson to bring a Hue-Jackson-like, explosive, downfield passing game will likely come away disappointed.

I just don't see the Jets being able to afford him... I think people forget how bad of a cap situation the Jets are in. Yes, they are under the cap right now but they have a TON of holes. Both starting safeties signed elsewhere, they need a few starting LBs, 2 starting guards, possibly a starting RT, possibly a starting RB (unless they are handing the reigns to Powell, and even then they will need a decent backup), and they'd love to bring in atleast one new receiver... That's a ton of holes with not that much cap space. I anticipate he ends up with the Bills on a 1-2 year deal worth around 2-3 mil annually. More than he's worth but he plays the most important position on the field and teams happen to need QBs this offseason

If it means passing up on Eric Fisher, by all means I am for it. Laughing

Well that's all fine and dandy but that doesn't mean he's going to be exactly the same as back then. I guess neither of us has a real way of knowing what Olsen will be like though so its a moot point.

It just means the vertical offense is far from a given.

At some stage they will, but Drew Stanton will start for AZ week one.

With the Cards and Bills undoubtedly needing a QB and Jags and Raiders possibly in the hunt for one, the Chiefs shouldn't have any trouble trading down if they wanted to.


I've said this before, but I doubt either team is desperate enough to jump that far up. I think the highest possible trade up is with the Jags at #2, but I fully expect both teams to wait and see what the Raiders do and then look at their options with picks 4-6 if they plan to trade up.

I would still wager that the Lions and Browns are the two most likely teams to make a trade that nets their partner Geno.

The Chiefs best bet for trading down is with a team with their heart set on a non-QB.

Bidding war between the Bills and Cards to get the Eagles pick? Yes please.


Dream. It's a guarantee the Cards won't trade up. Apparently it's more likely they draft O-line/pass rush.

I see OT in round one and a QB in round two.
