    That is lovely. I'm not supposed to recognize any of those people, am I? I hope I'm not embarrassing myself asking.

    I'm not to sure how great this guy is but i'd think puting a 6'0 QB behind a 6'9 Ogden is not that great. He can do a 5 step drop every time and still wouldn't be able to see over J.O's head. So if he plays at all this year watch and see how often he passes left and right. He maybe like a Ryan Leaf. But at least we only used a 5th and not the 1st overall pick.
    What you talkin' about Willis?

    otherside of center...I am sure Ohio State didn't have Ts that were shorter than 6'0". It's not like a receiver or a CB is going to be able to hide in the blind spot of Jon Ogden...

    also, someone mentioned the idea that if Troy Smith doesn't pan out as a QB, maybe having him do CB or WR. Any thoughts? I still say 5th round is a nice place to get him, no pressure to make him QB of the future, and we get a great athlete.

    If we let him go you know Cleveland will sign him. :>)

    Boller has developed - he's improved each season. He has shown that, with decent protection and decent receivers, he can do fine as an NFL QB (100+ QB rating in four of his last five games.)

    If the Ravens are smart, they'll sign Boller to an extension, and keep Smith behind him (or competing with him), hoping to find themselves in the same situation the Chargers did with Brees and Rivers - two quality QBs, with one to trade.

    except they didn't trade Brees, he left.
