    Good, lets get Dixon late in the 4th or 5th round....he's gonna sit next year anyway, so let him rehab and learn the O. He is the most mobile of the top 10 qb's in next years draft and he ain't as good at baseball as he is at football.....

    If he's there, definitely! I don't think he'll last that long....Jerry Jones has a hard-on for him and will probably trade up to get him.....

    My dream draft would be either McFadden/Chris Long in the 1st and Dixon in the 4th or 5th....

    3. Joe Flacco (Ben Rothlesberger type of QB).
    4. Dennis Dixon (But he wants to play baseball moreso than football).

    Those are the only 4 QB worth getting.

    Brian Brohm is overrated and all I saw was another Brian Griese.
    Andre Woodson is another Byron Leftwich. Boo.
    Colt Brennan? Please. Get real.
    I like that list. Matt Ryan is by far the best QB in this draft. Erik Ainge is also going to surprise a lot of people in the NFL. His awareness is unreal. He has the arm and the brain to be an NFL QB.

    I like Colt Brennan. Forget the system crap. I don't care what system you are in. He completes 72% of his passes and throws for a million yards per game.

    Granted I haven't watched more than 2 games for most of the QBs coming out this year but I don't like Eric Ainge. Matt Ryan seems OK but watching him in the Florida State lost was the first time I really watched him...and he was horrible that game.

    Brohm
    Brennan=Bust.
    Dixon=stick figure not built for the NFL.

    After Brohm, it is Ryan and Woodson.

    <<< I like Colt Brennan. Forget the system crap. I don't care what system you are in. He completes 72% of his passes and throws for a million yards per game.

    So does his back up and every other QB that has played for Jones. He throws a million bubble screens. That is why the % is high. He also throws side arm. He makes Rivers look technically sound. He has Chang written all over him. UGA gunna snot knock them.

    There is no sure science to picking a QB for the NFL.What works in college might not carry over into the NFL. I think most of the young QB's playing in the NFL now other than Romo, are struggling to get to grips with NFL defenses.

    So you have 50/50 chance with any name you pick out of the hat.None of the QB's in college have impressed me in the end games running upto the bowl games. Brennan is a good argument,but wasn't Timmy Chang a pretty good Hawaii QB.He couldn't even cut it in the NFLE & CFL.
    Put the smile back on your face.This is a 60 minute ball game.

    And while some may be thinking I'm being sarcastic, I am not. I am being extremely serious.

    In a non-sarcastic manner, the QB you seek out is Denis Dixon form Oregon. He is a little slower Michale VIck with a better arm.
    If you are looking for Big Ben type mobility, where escabability from the pocket is paramount, not the actual gain of yards from running, then Ryan to me, is the most likely guy to be able to escape the pocket and still make a downfield play.

    I, personally, don't feel the line is as bad as you describe, and certainly don't think it will be that bad bny the tiem whomever we draft actually plays. We may have some more gwoing pains next year, but I can't imagine a sub-par line by '09. I have faith in these young kids to improve. I don't really understand why so few people do. Most of these kids are Rooks, 2nd year guys and a couple are third year guys. Chester appears to be the only one slow to progress and well, he was drafted as a high ceiling project.

    I think Hawaii is gonna surprise UGA in this game. Hawaii has 3 excellent WR's in Davone Bess, Jason Rivers, and Ryan Grice-Mullen. They'll spread the field and UGA won't be able to contain them......I anticipate a very high scoring and entertaining game and I think Brennan will impress a lot of people with how he plays against a good SEC team...but I could be wrong and they'll be exposed against a good team, instead of the "easy" teams they usually play......

    Hawaii will get SMUSHED in the trenches, on both sides of the ball. I don't see this game being close.

    Well, I've watched this line operate with guys like Ethan Brooks, Orlando Brown, and those guys. Remember, Boller isn't the only QB to be injured by this line. It's not like the line has been good, then got bad. It's been bad. It's been bad for years. And when they can't pass block, they can run block and nothing else (2003). The last couple years they can't do either.


    And to me, if the line is GOING to be good by the time we play a draft pick, then why draft a QB when you know the line is going to play better, and pick up the play of whoever is QB'ing the team, McNair, Boller, or Smith?

    If we are going to draft a QB this year, and I am sticking to the discussion at hand, then I think I'm looking at Dixon more than Ryan.
