There, I started for you. Only 497 more Leinarts to go.


you know, the thing that hurts about that is that I'm usually the one bitching people out about Leinart's spelling. Looks like I'm the a-hole now. D'oh!

Anyways, yes, Omar isn't having the superman year he did last year, but his numbers are still pretty good. 4:1 TD:INT ratio, 60.7% accuracy, only 11 sacks.

While I can't use the same argument against Vince, Omar doesn't have Steve Smith and Reggie Bush, and the nation's best OL. Young's OL isn't bad either. But Omar gets it done pretty much on his own.

Didn't Omar flop really hard this year the one time they played against a real defense? I thought I remembered seeing that.

How do you guys think Drew Olson(UCLA) will do in the draft, hes got a strong arm and pretty decent numbers himself.

2004
196 of 341(57.5%) for 2,565 yards with 20 TDs and 13 INTs(four on deflections).

Just curious.

no way... he was a Heismann hopeful until a few weeks ago.

Personally, I don't think he declares anyway (though I might have gotten him confused with someone else, but I'm pretty sure he has another year of eligibility).

Heisman hopefuls don't always equal good pro's. See Jason White as one of many examples. Also Drew Olson is a senior so he'll be in this draft and like CC said he's a 2nd day pick. I never thought his arm strength was that great to be honest. I can name 10 QB's that I'd take over him for this years draft.

Heisman hopeful? Olson had ZERO chance of every winning the Heisman.

I'll spell it out. First off, he really wasn't any good up until this season and QBs that have one good season have to be exceptionally talented to go fairly high in the draft. He has poor arm strength and is slow in the pocket. He also relied on Marcedes Lewis' ability to get open for a lot of his yards and even if he was not open he would throw up a jump ball and let Marcedes' go and get it.

Matt Leinart
Jay Cutler
Vince Young
Charlie Whitehurst
Kellen Clemens
Paul Pinegar
Erik Meyer
Reggie McNeal
Brodie Croyle

That's 9 for sure and Gradkowski and Basanez are probably better as well.

Jason White wasn't a heisman hopeful. He won the heisman. Anyway, it had nothing to do with his football skills that he couldn' cut it in the pros. He had blown out both his knees and could no longer go under center and push off with much power. That's why at oklahoma he was always in the shotgun. he had the tools to make it in the pros....just not the knees.

I am still waiting for the NCAA to give White his 12th year of eligibility.....
