SI.com’s Peter King served up a warm plate of his Monday Morning Quarterback column today, and as been the case of late, it came with a small slice of Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston on the side.
King spoke to Hall of Fame general manager former Colts top dog Bill Polian, and also former Bucs GM Ron Wolf about Tampa Bay’s upcoming decision in the 2015 NFL Draft. Both GMs have been been in the Bucs’ situation, and both ended up identifying future Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Polian with Peyton Manning and Wolf who saw the potential of Brett Favre.
Polian told King it was very close, but preferred Mariota by a small Margin, and Wolf said the same thing but preferred Jameis Winston.
To read the reasoning behind both of their decisions, make sure to check out King’s latest MMQB.

You do realize Wolf didn’t draft Favre right? He traded a pick for him, but he didn’t draft him.
either way it still was a very smart move lol
“Wolf who saw the potential of Brett Favre”. read the King article and MC’s wording is exactly accurate
I’m referring to this blog post where MC states
“Both GMs have been been in the Bucs’ situation, and both ended up drafting future Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Polian with Peyton Manning and Wolf who saw the potential of Brett Favre.”
Wolf did not draft a future HOF QB. He traded for one. The wording in this post is wrong.
“saw the potential” while Favre was a drunk ass Falcon. No mention of “drafting” him.
Did you see my quote, it was from the article? They fixed the article because it was clearly wrong. Welcome to the future!
polian hang up w/ winston, like most of his detractors, is off the field issues…
The “experts” also question the number of Winston’s interceptions but never mention Mariota’s gaudy sack and fumble statistics.
