Brady Quinn traded to Broncos


Recommended Posts

but only three in the last 20 years.

i'm not disputing they used to be a great program but last 25 years or so they are the quintessential "over rated due to legacy" program.

3 in 20 years is great when you consider that Emmit Smith will be Florida's second in their entire history.

Hell, Oklahoma and Nebraska only have three Hall of Famers each in their entire history. Three in 20 years in incredible.

Oh, and when Bettis goes in in the next 2 or three years that will make it four in the last 20 years and tie USC with 11 all-time for most ever.

And Tim Brown will make it five in 20 years and put them over USC with 12.

yes but 3 stinks considering how many 1st round picks have been burned on dud ND players over that time frame.

As opposed to the University of Miami, which has had the most 1st rounders in the last 20 years but only 4 Hall of Famers in their history?

Think before you speak.

Brady Quinn already knows the offense. Little Josh made this trade for a reason. Quinn will be the Broncos' opening day starter.

Orton has played some very solid games.

If, by some odd chance, Quinn is declared the season's starter, he'll rapidly become another J.P. Losman story.

Ray Lewis is overrated? Ed Reed is overrated?

one or two players a trend doth not make.

this is like saying height doesn't matter at the QB position because brees has done well. despite such exceptions, you're still statistically better off with a taller QB. so in order to maximize your odds of not striking out, a GM should avoid ND players in the first (and possibly even 2nd) rounds because ND has 10x the national press coverage of other schools (i.e. NBC contract) and thus its star players get an artificial boost in value due to media hype/exposure/and familiarity. not saying a ND player can't succeed at the next level, you're just more likely to overpay for him in the draft.

Not for nothin, but Jeremy Shockey, Greg Olsen, Reggie Wayne, Andre Johnson, Vince Wilfork, Jonathon Vilma, Jon Beason, Antrel Rolle, Brandon Meriweather.
