8 games isnt enought time to judge a Qb in the NFL.
I dont care how bad they play.
Hell, Ryan Leaf looked like a stud his first two games.
Is Kellen the answer, who knows, but I would like to find out. Eli is just an example of why you give the kid a shot.
Now the CS just needs to recognize that. Has Eli ever had to worry about looking over his shoulder? Nope! They committed to him full force and thats how you develop a young Qb.
Now, I know that the Giants have a lot invested in Eli, but that is all the more reason to give Kellen a shot...we have nothing invested in him.
And also, for all these guys that want us to draft a QB because they dont believe in Kellen or dont want to wait to see what he truly can bring to the table...get ready to indure another horrible season because there isnt a single Qb in this draft that is going to come out and WOW this league in season 1 or 2 for that matter.
Whether we like it or not, agree with it or not, nobody will know enough about Clemens until we give him a decent O-line and a full year to prove himself. And 2008 should be that year. Upgrade the O-line and let him show his stuff for 16 games.
[QUOTE=Untouchable;2333089]I agree that Clemens needs more time but this isn't exactly the best comparison.
Eli was an elite QB prospect (and #1 pick) coming out of Ole Miss. Clemens was a 2nd round pick and not nearly as highly regarded.
To be frank, we aren't giving Kellen 4 years like the Giants did Manning.[/QUOTE]
a lot of people had clemens as the best QB coming out that year before he hurt his leg. we picked him with the 4th pick in the second round, which is a high pick. manning wouldnot have been considered as "elite" if he had a diff last name. clemens may not get 4 years, but can we give him 2 before we throw him away? this is not a DB who we can plug in as a rookie - it takes a long time for a qb to get good. everyone wants everything now and you are just setting yourself up for more disapointment. start to think 3 years from now and you will have less agita
