We need to improve at QB. If we go in with Simms/Rattay/Gradkowski we're doomed to another 3-4 win season.I'm hoping we draft a decent QB in April, otherwise we won't have much to look forward to this coming season. I kind of hope that we get Russel or Quinn -
LSU's WR are night and day compared to that of ND's.

I kind of hope that we get Russel or Quinn -He didn't show it last season. I've seen a few good rookie QBs lately do well in their first season - Â Vince Young, Rothlesberger. Â Simms just doesn't have the skills.That's not really true. Simms would probably do better than any rookie QB.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
The talent around Quinn is no better than what Philip Rivers had at NC State and no one ripped them for going 8-4 every year.
LSU's WR are night and day compared to that of ND's. Here are some stats for you guys regarding Quinn and RussellQuinn threw 13 TD's and threw 5 INT's against the likes of Penn State (who drug Tennessee), Michigan (one of the best Defensive Units in the country), UCLA (who shut down a vaunted USC offense), USC (I think we know USC) and LSU.Russell in big games against Auburn, Tenn, Florida, ND and Arkanasas threw for 10 TD's and had 7 Ints.I don't know understand why people think that Quinn is irrelevant and that Russell is so much better. Russell has a bigger arm, great whooptie doo! Quinn is faster, much smarter and has been coached up by one of the best QB guys on the planet. You can say he pads stats all day long but when you look at the stats from 2006, there they are. Give me Quinn any day of the week. ADW, what competition did he play that was SOOOO superior, Florida? Ok that is one team, Florida, national champs. Tenn didn't win a bowl game (Lost to a team that Quinn played against and threw 3 TD's against)Ark didn't win a bowl game (Lost to a team Michigan beat who Quinn played against)Auburn slid by Nebraska (collapsed half way thru the season)ND didn't win a bowl game (have a pathetic defense)Besides that his schedule was brutal...Louisiana lafayetteArizonaTulaneMississippi StKentuckyFresnoAlabamaOle'MissNow I'm not saying that Quinn played against the toughest schedule in the country but you look at Penn State who won a bowl against a team that dominated Russell, Michigan who had one of the top defensive units in the country, UCLA who shut down USC, USC who had a great team, and LSU who also had a great team you will see that Quinn did perform at a good level throwing for 13 td's and 5 ints all the while carrying a team that could not even come close the calibur of players that LSU has. You look at that body of work and its damn near the same. The assertation that Quinn could not play in the SEC is ridiculously inept. Some speak of blinders and other speak of goggles, take of the SEC goggles guys...
