    I would love to have AJ McCarron. No lost love here. He's still going to be a winner at the next level. But he could go second round. I am not advocating drafting Mannion with a top 5-10 pick. I just think he is better than the QB's Shawn listed.

    he looks like I thought he would... a few nice passes but easy to pick off because he lacks zip.

    You gotta be the most clueless fan I have ever heard. He's in an offense that isnt conducive to what he does best. It's a read option offense. He's not a read option QB. The first week he had no work at all with the first team offense. He was basically just thrown in there. And this past week he had very little work with the first team as Vick went in as the number 1.

    But what ever. Like I said from day one. If he gets a legitimate chance and is in the right offense he'll be a successful NFL QB. This past week he was 17-26. Again, all things considered, I think he did pretty well. And Troy Aikman two weeks ago said he saw nothing wrong with the strength of his arm.

    Completely agree.....Also, I get the impression some here don't want any football unless it's Steelers football. It's not a bad thing but it puts things into perspective.

    Troy Aikmen didn't see anything wrong with his arm strength because he kept throwing the ball to his Cowboys. INT's (3 officially)

    I watched every throw vs Dallas... first pass, INT to the LB. Called back because a DL was lined up off sides. He had a few completions underneath followed by an INT, then another... and one more in desperation on their last drive.

    shhh...

    What do you expect from a kid in his first NFL action, playing in an offense that isn't designed for his ability, and having not practiced with the number one offense?

    He's been thrown into two games in the middle of both of them, and he's still over a 60% competition percentage. I see potential. You see criticism.
