1) collins... i've always had a soft spot for him2) tough to say,they bring him in baltimore mgmnt is going to want to see some "push back" from boller,most likely he'll roll overBest scenery for both Baltimore and Collins makes this the logical choice.
now for questions?
Who would start? Collins or Boller?
Will Collins make Boller a better QB in long run?
Will Mason, Heap, and Lewis be worth a upgrade with Collins at QB?
Will Baltimore start winning again?
This is one team has me confused these last two years! lol
Ummm the WCO is a dink & dunk O, that's what Childress will run.Puhleeeeeeeeeeeeeeese let it be Minny. Johnson was a fluke. It was all smoke and mirrors. No idea what Childress is thinking brining in McMahon. This team is going to be pathetic if they turn into a dink & dunk O. They'll need an arm like Collins to keep the safetys more than 3 feet off the line of scrimmage. He may make his share of mistakes, but he makes the DBs honest. That should give taylor a least some breathing room.
I'm not a Smith fan, but its kind of early to call smith "unbelievably bad" based on a few starts his rookie year with a horrible supporting cast. Did you say the same thing about Eli after his rookie year even with his strong supporting cast?you'd think Baltimore is the most likely answer, but I'd also say GB is always a possibility, so is N.O. as a backup to Brees..perhaps SF, where he'd make an immediate impact and would certainly be much better than Alex Smith..eesh..
Smith is unbelievably bad!
Exactly what I mean. With a QB that can't throw the ball more than 20 yards and a HC/OC who doesn't have three plays in the playbook of more than 20 yards, they really need a guy "Like" Collins to be able to at least present the illusion that they might throw it downfield. Dunno what their draft prospect sheet looks like, but I hope there's a real QB on it.Ummm the WCO is a dink & dunk O, that's what Childress will run.Puhleeeeeeeeeeeeeeese let it be Minny.

I thought Boller showed a ton of improvement. The guy was playing with garbage around him until last season and he got hurt in the first game. That really stunted the chemistry growth between him and his receivers.The whisper I hear in Baltimore is that the Ravens are keeping their fingers crossed that McNair still gets let go in Tennessee (maybe after the draft?) and that they want him first, and then Collins second if/when McNair stays with the Titans.
Also, their ideal scenario is that they bring in a veteran QB whose presence pushes Boller to previously undetected levels of performance and that Boller earns the starting job. Hard to imagine that happening, but the organization hasn't given up on him yet.
Another whisper is that Boller was really not ready to return from injury last year, but that Anthony Wright was so horrible in going 2-5 as a starter, the Ravens begged him to come back and try to play on one leg, figuring that the season was lost anyway and that Boller might as well get some more playing time in.
Don't know if it's true or not, but Boller did show some improvement toward the end (when he was presumably healthier) and if the team knew he really was playing while injured, it might explain why they (alone) haven't yet given up on him.
Jamal ran for more yards than Boller threw in 2003 (and BTW scored more TDs than he threw). 11 games or not, that's pathetic.His career average is something like 10 TDs 10 INTs. He needs to throw for more than 20.I thought Boller showed a ton of improvement. The guy was playing with garbage around him until last season and he got hurt in the first game. That really stunted the chemistry growth between him and his receivers.
That may be the problem. He's become too conservative and nervous since then. Of course some would say his first year sober he did great. Well I'd say detox did not set in yet that year.I do find it ironic that I went to Penn State the same years that Collins did and the only time I ever saw him other than in a game was at the liquor store during our Senior year.
He's waiting. A Qb will get hurt. Or not play well.Then He will be the guy. Unless you want Jeff George?So if you're Kerry Collins, do you sign for less money to be a backup somewhere or hope that someone gets hurt/sucks it up enough in pre-season or even the first couple of weeks to pay you starter money?
Yes, Harrington. Young QB, knows the division. Would be a good backup for Rodgers as he grows in to the role w/o Favre.If Favre does not come back I have to believe the Packers would have to go after Collins. Currently their QB's consist of Rodgers and Favre. If Favre retires and Collins goes elsewhere who arethe Packers going to have as their back-ups? Harrington?
