Leinart looked more polished especially against that Bears D. But when it mattered the most, Gradkowski delivered, and that s all I ask from him right now.

owski V Leinart  ???

Not even close, Leinart is much more polished IMO.  Maybe in two or three years we can say Grads is better than Leinart for Gruden's offense.

Street Smarts versus Urban Cool...Mmmmm.  Give Street Smarts one year and then he'll be cool too...But Leinart is very impressive now.  L may be tough but I think Grads will go for jugular...in a nice way, of course.  LOL

My daughter has a giant poster of Matt Leinart in her room (not for football abilities), so I am just going to say Gradkowski because I'm tired of hearing about and seeing Leinart.  ;) ;D

Honestly though, I think Leinart will develop into a 'franchise' quarterback long before Gradkowski ever would, but the 6th rounder is proving he should have been bumped up a few rounds.

It is clear Leinart is a better QB and prospect but the point the stats prove is that production wise their aint much difference considering 1 is a top 10 pick the other is a 6th rounder.

Think of it this way the cost of Cadillac, Clayton and Gradkowski's contract is equal to that of Leinarts.

(The other thing to note is that whilst Leinart is more polished at the moment, Gradkowski will develop and become better, Leiart WILL NEVER< EVER devlop the rushing skill and abilty to create and save himself with his feet!!!)

Leinart looked great against the Bears.  I didn't give Leinart enough credit coming out.  I think he's better than Grads, but...we'll see.

How is that possible?  Did they really give Leinart that much money?

Leinarts obviously more polished and sneaky mobile. Production is production and they're moving along the same, IMO.

What I likes about ML's performance on Monday night was how cool he played against a very good Bears defense. He didn't panick....

Leinart contract 51$ mil (without getting into extensive detail)

Caddy's 31$ mil (he was picked 5 spots before lineart too)
Clayton 13$ mil


I cant find Gradkowski contract numbers but am certain as a 6th rounder they are less than the 7$ mil diff between Caddy + Clayton & Leinart

(Joseph was 10$ mil, you could almost have all 4)
I think it is obvious what you would choose.

How can you compare a top 10 pick to a 6th rounder? ???

Brady came out of Michigan. Gradkowski came out of Toledo. Whereas your point about 1st round/6th round is true, the level of play between a Toledo and a Michigan is very different. You play your schedule, but Leinart (and Brady) played against Notre Dame, Washington, etc. Gradkowski played against Bowling Green; Eastern Michigan. You might be able to put up an argument that there is a difference between Leinart and Gradkowski that wasn't present for McNabb and Brady (although Syracuse has its fair share of Rutgers and Wyoming  ;)).
