Thou Shalt Not Covet! Is one of the ten commandments…
But that is not stopping some envious reporters and fans in once again thinking and hoping that somehow the Bengals (who are also in the hunt for a franchise QB) are stupid enough to even entertain the idea of trading away their rights to the new OVERRATED young QB coming out of the 2020 NFL draft.
There are no greater overrated players and bust than first round QB’s coming from college and entering the NFL draft. Teams waste/spend countless of hours, money and resources trying to get that position right!
No player takes a huge leap up the draft board like QB’s!
A List of some of the QB Bust Over The years (No Specific Order)
- Brady Quinn
- Kordell Stewart
- Charlie Frye
- Quincy Carter
- John Beck
- Jason Campbell
- Daunte Culpepper
- Matt Leinart
- Rex Grossman
- Byron Leftwich
- Tony Eason
- Kyle Boller
- Jeff George
- David Carr
- Ryan Leaf
- JaMarcus Russell
- Art Schlichter
- Todd Marinovich
- Heath Shuler
- Rick Mirer
- Andre Ware
- Akili Smith
- Cade McNown
- Todd Blackledge
- David Klingler
- Tim Couch
- Jim Druckenmiller
- Joey Harrington
That’s just a list of a few names that did not live up to expectations.
Now I’m in no way saying that Joe Burrow will be a bust because we won’t know for at least 2-3 years. Even if Joe Burrow becomes the next best thing to the G.O.A.T he will not be the first or last QB to be a success in the NFL.
Instead of coveting the Bengals number 1 slot in the upcoming draft why not focus on what the Dolphins have in this years NFL draft. That is the ability to add up to 14 new players to a roster depleted of talent last season.
Instead of thinking that Cincinnati will somehow be stupid enough to trade out of their spot and some of you willing to give up the farm for an unproven prospect coming out of college, why not follow my example and wish the Dolphins would focus on staying with the rebuild and develop the young QB that they have on the roster that mirrors Burrow.
Josh Rosen and Joe Burrow are just about twins and if it were not for the fact that Rosen just might have been the unluckiest player to ever come into the NFL in recent history, having landed on two teams ill-prepared to care for a young QB in his first two NFL seasons, some of you might would have a better perspective on Josh Rosen.
I am on record in saying Miami needs to give Josh Rosen more time and should focus on TEAM BUILDING rather than the QB position in 2020 and allow the current QB room in Miami to play out.
We have a young 22/3 year old kid highly rated in 2018 as a top QB prospect entering the NFL
Here is his scouting report STRENGTHS
- Lethal pocket passer
- Throws a great spiral
- Rare arm talent
- Can really spin it; passes never wobble
- Can be an accurate passer with good ball placement
- Field vision
- Threads passes into tight windows
- Throws receivers open
- Can beat good coverage with his arm and accuracy
- Developed field vision
- Throws with good timing
- Stands tall in the pocket
- Throws knowing he is going get hit
- Good footwork
- Has experience working under center
- Throws with good timing
- Good ball placement and timing to lead receivers for yards after the catch
- Intelligent, advanced football IQ
- Strong play recall
Josh Rosen’s personality is somewhat of an enigma as some have had issues dealing with him but he has handled himself very admirably from the debacle in Arizona to his being poorly handled in Miami so far. I personally see a poor mans Aaron Rodgers in Rosen just waiting to be developed!
But for so many to give up on Rosen for the new hot thing Joe Burow is just ridiculous, I often use the saying “A Bird In The Hand Is Worth Two In The Bush” because we have a young QB that just needs two things time to develop and stability!
GM Chris Grier and the Dolphins OWE him that because they should have never traded for him if they are willing to be as shallow and fickle as the media and fans can be.
So for those of you on board with those coveting the Bengals position in the Draft and are willing to give away very valuable draft picks (OUR 3 FIRST ROUND PICKS) I say get a grip and come to your senses, Joe Burrow is not worth three first round picks and the Bengals are not trading away their spot!
It takes more than a QB to win in the NFL and the Dolphins have so many needs to address they are better suited to just focus on team building and PLAYER DEVELOPMENT to build a contending team for the future.
