What I do know is that if there ever was a movie about McCown, he'd be played by Barry Pepper.
I'm pretty firmly in the McCown camp. In almost every way I think he is by far the best QB here. The only exception is the mistakes, but I believe those are due to his lack of experience more than anything else -- Young QBs make those errors and learn from them. If he can't learn from them he's just another Grads. But I think he will.I'd like to see people making a different argument with the QBs. Talking hypothetically, if Luke cut those mistakes down, does anyone think he would NOT be the best QB on the team? My opinion is he would, and by far; I'm not sure how anyone could argue that but I'd like to hear it. The second question is are his mistakes an innate flaw, or the standard travails of a young QB? That really seems to be the million dollar question. When I look at what he did wrong last year, it was pretty standard stuff for a guy with only a handful of starts; holding the ball a little too long, relying a bit too much on his mobility, not driving a couple of passes that he should have. Early on I thought the kid was a walking turnover. As things went on, I thought he corrected the general danger of that, and moved, in my mind, from what I feared was a Robo clone to a young guy making mistakes. If I'm right about that (and about Jeff not holding up a full year), we need to start him now. If I'm wrong, then he's just another bust. That's where I think the debate really focuses. And FWIW, Luke would be a great character guy to have as the team's QB...
Badabing - while you point out all of his downfalls from 2004, what you are forgetting is they had no offensive line, no running game and no receivers on that team, not to mention he was thrown to the wolves
