Gruden's article on these 5 QBs
Good read. I'm still surprised Ponder wasn't invited
It seems pretty clear from this article that Gruden was most impressed with Dalton. He gives a lot of praise to each QB but he really heaps it on Dalton.
I've watched all of the episodes so far except for Locker (I hear that his was impressive) and I was most impressed with Dalton too. I'd rank their interviews like this...
... big gap ...
... Grand Canyon sized gap ...
how can you put Mallett last?
He broke down his play(which was way more complex then the rest of them) very well. Having to read zone, man and blitz presures with hot reads. The most ready to play imo.
I agree with the part you said Mallet shouldn't be last. He can at least name a play they run. Newton couldn't even give 1 name of a pass play they run. He couldn't come up with the verbiage for just 1 play!
Btw, did anyone see the Gruden Camp with Nick Fairley? He sounded dumb as could be. His only responses were pretty much "Oh yeah" and "you gotta be".
The Auburn offense doesn't use "verbiage" in a traditional sense, nor did Cam "call plays" in a traditonal huddle. It's a fast-paced, fast-break, no-huddle offense that uses a series of signs/numbers to call out plays, formations, patterns, etc., that come from a flip-chart on the sideline.
