If Culpepper can play even 12 games this year, if Miami got him, I'd give them close to 50/50 odds on taking the division. I'm surprised you're all for this though Vader. I thought you'd want them to draft Cutler (perhaps sacrificing this season in doing so) for the long-term benefits.

I do want them to draft Cutler. BUT, if they can get a guy like Culpepper instead I am all for it. I already know what Culpepper can do...people think they know what Cutler might be able to do. Philip Rivers and Matt Schaub are probably the only 2 guys I would want Miami to get and not draft Cutler but that was before Culpepper came into the mix.

Volek's almost 30. I'm not saying he isn't good enough to start somewhere (he is imo), but he's not a young guy with long-term potential.

Matt Schaub is very overrated. He has had but a few decent passing games in Vick's absence, but compared to Vick almost all Qb's in the league will look like good quarterbacks. Rivers, on the other hand, is a gamer with lots of potential and good leadership skills. I would not pass on the potential of Cutler for Schaub, but would most certainly take the gamble on Rivers.

You can't exactly say he's overrated though just because he's done well every time he's played. I like Schaub, he is a pretty good passer and uses his feet well. He is not necessarily a Mike Vick with his legs but he has deceptive speed and uses it very well. I think Atlanta will try to hang on to him but there will be many teams who continue to be interested in him.

Couldnt agree more, especially when you look at what ATL is asking for him - a 1st or high 2nd rd pick - no way is he worth that much - thats crazy.

I'd take a shot on him over Omar Jacobs in the 2nd round. 1st round, they won't get, 2nd round is possible.

Yea....I would consider taking a shot at Schaub for a second rounder.
