Which Quarterback under 30 would you choose...

Recommended Posts

I just heard Bucky Brooks answer this. Thought it was a cool. 

 

4 questions, all answers must be different. 

 

Which Quarterback under 30 would you choose? 

for 1 play?

for 1 drive? 

for 1 game?

for the next 10 years? 

 

 

My answers. 

#1. For 1 play. Cam Newton. For 1 play I need to make sure that I have a guy who has a rocket arm, great accuracy, ability to run if the play breaks down and is big and strong enough to break tackles and get into the endzone if the play does in fact break down. 

#2. For 1 drive. Matthew Stafford. Stafford proved that he wasnt just the beneficiary of having Megatron. Amongst active starters Stafford is #8 with the most game winning drives in the NFL. The other 7 ahead of him are all over the age of the 30. Stafford has 28 career game winning drives, #1 amongst active QB's under 30. 

#3. For 1 game. Derek Carr. Because Derek Carr is a beast, that's why. You can put Carr up against any one in the league and there is a legit chance that he will win that game. There arent many young QB's in the game that you can say that about. 

#4. For the next 10 years. Russell Wilson. The guy is a gamer and a champion. If I was part of a Madden Fantasy Draft and I had my pickings of every QB in the league under 30, my 1st pick would be, without hesitation...Russell Wilson. Russell Wilson is a winner. That's what I would want as my #1 guy if im going to build a team around someone.

It's Ironic that the only game Russell Wilson was asked to win, he lost by his own hands .

I think I would choose Derek Carr for the total package because he's a known commodity

Obviously you forgot how the Seahawks got to that superbowl in the first place. 

Though to your point, this is why I picked Derek Carr as my "1 game" QB. 

 

For the next 10 years though, I cant call Carr a known Commodity. He needs to win playoff games first. Wilson is a champion, back to back SB appearances. He's a known commodity.

1 play .... Wilson or Luck

1 drive ... Wilson or Luck

1 game ... Wilson or Luck

10 years ... Wilson, Luck, Prescott, Darnold?

I watch Cam Newton every week as well as the Jets. The 2 seasons ago Cam was incredible and would be my pick. However injuries and pooor team play last year make cautious.

 So any of the top 2 or 3 we can get in the next draft is my pick...

TANK!!!

What could possibly be the reason to insist on different answers for one play, one drive, one game? Feelings?

 

Thought this was pretty cool. Tried to get something going during the offseason. Should have known better.

Excellent conversation piece because like you I think most fans would have different candidates for each question . I like what Derek Carr offers, and I would go with him as my answer to all those questions . I was never a fan of Luck or Newton and you know what I think of Russell Wilson . I do like Stafford but only for the 1 game  question and I think Carr fills that role also . In 2 years, I would like to think that my answer to this would be Trubisky, but that's only because I'm just floored by his skill set .

My estimation of Russell Wilson has gone up substantially the last year or two.  Having said that, Carr is my favorite young Qb right now.  Imo he's only just begun to show what he can accomplish.

He put on a QB clinic against the Jets and Futz last season.

The craziest thing to me is how I hear many people say that they dont think Wilson is as great a QB as everyone else thinks he is. Though I hear constant criticism of Wilson. We always here about how he has a great defense and it's really the defense and not Wilson. 

 

Meanwhile a guy who seems to always get the "he's great" praise is Andrew Luck. I never understand that. 

 

Russell Wilson is the better quarterback of the two. 

 

Also, we all know what happened when Pete Carroll put the ball in Wilson's hands during that last play of the superbowl, but it wasnt like Wilson messed that play up. Malcom Butler made just a ridiculous play, and its clearly the best single play in superbowl history. The WR didnt want that ball the way Butler did. I cant put that at the hands of Wilson because of 20/20 hindsight. That was just a brilliant play by Butler and a piss poor effort by the WR in comparison to get that football.

too bad none of those QB's will be available. When it comes to possible QB's under 30 Cousins is the only one  who might be available. 

If I was forced to make a choice on any pre 30 QB it would be Russel Wilson and it would not be close

Wilson should have never been put in the position he was put in. That could very well be the dumbest play call in the history of sports and I'm pretty sure Wilson didn't call the play
