Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said on @NFLNetwork that he'd take Russell Wilson over Andrew Luck, RG3 and Colin Kaepernick? I laughed. Hard

 

gigantic facepalm

 

 

(even though I agree with him in hindsight)

I think Wilson is the best of all 3...

 

Wilson, Kaep, Luck, RG3

Luck is the best, by far, and it isn't close.

Luck was frenetic in the pocket and doesnt have the arm or running ability as Wilson. Wilson was by far the most composed of the 3 down the stretch last season. ANd I like Luck a lot....just dont think he's the HOF lock people already make him out to be.

running ability on a QB lasts about 2 years. Eventually a DE will catch up to him and break his leg. That's not my wish, I hope he has a great career. It's what usually happens. Luck will be a franchise QB for 10 years. Not saying HOF but he's nasty back there and turned a team without much talent into a playoff team.

Wilson didnt exactly have big time weapons aside from Lynch either. Luck was atrocious against the Ravens...and if Seattle's defense doesnt choke the Seahawks would have been in the title game on the back of Wilson.

 

I obviously dont have a dog in this race but Wilson looks unbelievably special imo...

i think luck will end being the best followed by RG3. I think kaep and wilson just gonna be solid starters (dont see as much as an upside)

 

right now tho i think wilson is ahead of those guys

 I like Wilson, but Kap has outrageous tools.  Down the line they will both probably get hurt bad.

imagine what 3 or 4 years of playing against NFL defenses will do for Luck. He's gonna keep improving. The fact that a pure rookie got beat up by the SUper Bowl champion Ravens isn't really a slam.

Just to recap, didn't the reports say that Bradway and Co were adamant about drafting Wilson and Tanny ignored them?

I know that. I just see things in Wilson I've never seen from a rookie QB.

 

Luck had his hiccups. His throwing motion and mechanics look a bit funky too...his front throwing foot he plants too far on his throws. 

 

Luck is going to be very good...Wilson I think is going to be a superstar.

I think Luck and Wilson will be the best of the bunch.  RG3 isnt long for the NFL.  Kap hasnt even played an entire season yet and I think teams will figure him out.

Bradway liked him a lot. Not sure regarding Tanny, but probably.

YEP. Kapernick is a flavor of the week. Franchise QB he is not.

Griffin can pass so I'm not sure. I know he can't keep up those running skills for too long, but I like him as a passer.

Tannenbaum, Schottenheimer, Sanchez, Holmes, and anyone else without a fan in the Jets fan base (except Bradway, a temporary protagonist) were adamant that Wilson would set the franchise back decades if not centuries.

Funny he said that the SOB, LOL

I sent  a email last year before draft to Jets Front Office (I know he never saw),,titled: Draft Wilson in this draft'

I said Mike;

Please take Russel Wilson in 3rd/4th round, he has what it takes to be a star at this level.

 

He ignored me, LOL

I think Wilson and Luck have the ability to be long term quality players in this league.  RG3 and Kap will have their moments I'm sure, but I cant see them being stars 5 years from now.

I'm just curious, are you aware how tired and boring your shtick has become?  It's gotten to the point that even when you're trying to make a point, it becomes completely lost on everyone, because nobody can be bothered to figure out if you're being serious.

So bored yet so hostile.

Anyone with a brain could see that post was serious.
