Better NFL QB: McCoy or Bradford

Better NFL QB: McCoy or Bradford

Just remember this...very few NFL minds ever thought Jeff Garcia would make it in the NFL...and his game resembles McCoy's quite a bit. Just food for thought...

Anyone have any info on the guy he did beat Florida last year>?

He actually could be the sleeper in all this. He was at Texas for a year or two before realizing he was never going to wrestle the job away from Colt, so he transfered.

Living in Austin, I watched him (Jevan Sneed) since he was recruited. Once he got installed as the full time guy at Ole Miss, he really looked sharp. A good year this year, and he could be in the Heisman running a very possibly a first round consideration or a 2nd round steal.

I think things really worked out for him. Had he beaten Colt he would have been "the guy after VY" which really hampered Colt until he proved he could play. Who knows if Snead would have done as well. Instead he goes to a low pressure situation with low expectations and is in a pro style system to boot.

Ole Miss doesn't run a pro style offense.
Snead is good though.
McCoy flicks the ball very much like Dan Marino. He moves in the pocket as well as anyone. Bradford reminds me of Manning: excellent reads and great accuracy. The real question is Bradford worth 85 million with 48 guaranteed compared to 20 million for McCoy? Because the CBA won't affect the 2010 rookie pool i bet.
Neither...I'd rather wait and see what our picks turn out to be and how all the athletes play, especially in the big games.
Many believe Snead could go number one next year. We'll see.

And Ole Miss actually does operate the closest thing to a pro-style offense that you'll see in CFB... Ive been claiming him for a minute now.

2008 SEC Championship game highlights

Like any QB, some of his throws where the screen passes and dump-offs, but a few key passes were down field, and he hit his guy in stride as you'll see.

Most importantly, when down near the goal line, he made very quick, hard and accurate throws to his WRs for TD passes in places where only they could catch the ball. Very impressive.

Dude, showing highlight clips from some of his games shows nothing but he has had some good plays throughout his career. Great. I'm guessing I can Youtube highlights from about 100 other QBs in CFB and have them look good. I don't think anyone is arguing that. The fact is Tebow hasn't been asked to do much. Maybe this year he will be asked to make some real NFL throws. He's great in Urban's system, perfect even. So was Alex Smith. Does the fact that he can run the spread option offense mean he will easily translate to the Pros as a great QB? I think not.

I couldn't agree more with this assessment.
TEBOW

favorite quote, "But it's a lesson: Superman in college can become Danny Wuerffel in the pros."


what NFL throws is he failing at exactly?

its a mistake to compare the offense run at Florida to the offense that was run at Utah like there is some blanket comparison of what Smith ran and what Tebow is running now... There is to much of a difference in what was run in utah to what is being run now to simply ignore it.

Smith made a living out of beating guys week in and week out that cant make a canadian football league team.

Tebow like him or not...is beating players week in and week out that are going to be in the NFL.


On a personal note , I am not a major Tebow fan , but The offense in Florida is carried on his back.

He is not Matt Leinart that gives the ball (one way of the other) to NFL ready playmakers to do the work for him.

Tebow carries that team , he flat out has an "X" factor , were he WILLS his team to victory.

He really reminds me of John Elway.

No doubt the guy has magic in a bottle ,but like elway i end up asking were was that 3 qtrs ago...

That statement is ridiculous. Who did Matt Leinart give the ball to that was an "NFL ready playmaker"? Was Tebow not giving the ball to Percy Harvin? I'm not sure what exactly an "NFL ready playmaker" is in your eyes. I'm guessing you aren't sure either.
Easy, Bradford. I personally haven't seen such a accurate arm on a QB since Dan Marino...his leadership is questionable, but we will see.

If he was not as good as McCoy at UT, then he has very little chance of being better than him in the NFL. Players don't mysteriously get better after sitting on the bench for years. Maybe a 3rd or 4th rounder would be good, but he is not worth a first day pick.

This could also be called the Booty/Sanchez corollary. In other words, Sanchez was a worse QB than Booty for his first two years at USC, than has one good year and is expected to be a star in the NFL?
