Young Guns: Bradford, Stafford, Sanchez, Freeman, Flacco, Ryan
 
(I looked thru a few pages here, and didn't see this already... I saw Cassell vs someone, and another smaller one, but not this)

Who do you think will be the best of these 6 young guns, when all is said and done?

All QBs who are in their first 3 years, they've all got some nice accomplishments already.

Which one would you put your money on if you had to pick one guy to buy stock in now for the biggest long term gain?

Now there are different ways to define "greatest" or "best".

We've had those debates with guys like Montana vs Marino, Aikman vs Steve Young, or now with Brady vs Peyton Manning.

Some guys think Super Bowl rings trump everything.
Others think personal statistics, accuracy, passing records, MVPs, etc are more important than the rings, because often times the rings are won by the best team, not best passer.


But I'm curious to see which of these young guns is loved the most here.





And I am talking about real here... I mean in their real situation, with their real team. NOT talking about hypothetically starting teams from scratch.

I think all 6 teams appear to have pretty bright futures so crappy team excuses shouldn't kill anyone chances here. I almost put Colt McCoy on here! Can't remember if Henne is in his 3rd year or 4th, but he misses the cut here anyway.

Bradford has looked great for a rookie, has the Rams winning games. He's getting raves.
Stafford has shown some great things, and with Calvin and Best there, some like their offense a lot going forward.
Flacco, Matty Ice, Sanchez, and Freeman all have teams who are doing great, and their futures look bright. So I can see any of their fans making a good case for their guy.

Who can make the best case?

I'll take Stafford. I think he's far and away the most talented and I'm betting (and hoping for Stafford's sake) that Mayhew and company take the necessary steps to keep him upright so he can show those talents off.

BeerBaron 11-05-2010 11:42 PM

I clicked Freeman before realizing Flacco was part of this. Regardless, those are my 1 and 2 currently. Stafford has the potential to move up if he stays healthy and plays well.

Caddy 11-05-2010 11:46 PM

It's good to finally see some 1st round quarterbacks living up to the draft status.

1. Stafford
2. Freeman
3. Ryan
4. Flacco
5. Bradford
6. Sanchez

dolphinfan2k5 11-05-2010 11:46 PM

Why are Flacco and Ryan included but not Henne? They are all in their 3rd season. Henne has only started one year though, unlike the other two.

V.I.P 11-05-2010 11:48 PM



I'll take that guy.

Flacco is my second option.

steelersfan43 11-05-2010 11:49 PM



Watch this and tell me you dont love stafford. So much heart.

Malaka 11-05-2010 11:51 PM

I went Flacco, I think out of everyone Flacco has the most potential. With a couple more good draft this Ravens team can continue to be great even after the greats like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed have ended their illustrious careers. It seems there is a turning point in this young Ravens' franchise: once all about defense, it seems the tables are turning and the offense (Led by Flacco, Rice, and great O-Line) will soon be the identity of the Baltimore Ravens.

I also really like Freeman. I don't know why people we so down on him; this could be a case of hindsight bias, but I personally didn't think he was as bad as some amde him out to be. I like Mike Williams, Benn, and LeGarrette Blount. The offense looks like it has some real potential.

As Beerbaron said Flacco and Freeman are my #1 and #2.

Stafford if he can stay healthy.

I think everyone is overreacting to Freeman, don't forget the Denver Broncos this time last year were 6-0

CashmoneyDrew 11-06-2010 12:02 AM

Bradford. He was my favorite prospect out of all of them and he's doing great so far. I can't wait to see what he'll do with some actual talent around him.

Bradford definately has talent around him, just not really in the passing game(which is what I assume you mean). He has a great young Oline as well as a top RB in S-Jax

I would like for Stafford to stay healthy for a whole year. If Bradford keeps this up, he would get my vote.
The reason I voted for Freeman was that I am impressed with how he has taken command of the Bucs and has been able to make plays when it counts. He's also been the hardest worker on the team. They all can still improve, but right now, I would go with Freeman.

TitanHope 11-06-2010 12:18 AM

I went with Stafford. Love the kid...sexually.

descendency 11-06-2010 12:24 AM

I'll take Flacco. He has the arm, he has the poise, and he has the GM to make it happen.

yodabear 11-06-2010 12:31 AM

Refer to sig cuz he is on my team, I love him, and I am a flaming **** I mean homer.

Bengalsrocket 11-06-2010 12:35 AM

I'll take Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. I think they've got the best situation to build upon (i.e. a massive head start) and Ryan seems to know exactly what he's doing at all times on the field.

Sanchez is probably my 2nd favorite, but not by much. I think all 3 of the big arm QB's (Flacco, Stafford, Freeman) will have bright futures, despite believing each one would be a bust when they were drafted.

My list would probably be:

1) Ryan
2) Sanchez
3) Flacco
4) Freeman
5) Bradford
6) Stafford

I just realized Stafford is my least favorite and he has the most votes with 12.. so I probably have no idea what I'm talking about here :P

Shane P. Hallam 11-06-2010 12:42 AM

Ryan will have the most success IMO.

Mr.Regular 11-06-2010 01:10 AM

Stafford was tempting, but he hasn't proved a whole lot yet and he seems to be quite fragile so I didn't go with him.

For me, this came down to Ryan, Freeman, and Bradford. Ryan hasn't 'wowed' me recently, but he is a solid QB and I can see him having long term success. Freeman just seems to have it. He reminds me a lot of Big Ben. He's been really good this year. Bradford, who I wasn't that high on in the draft, has blown me away with how he's done this year too. Wasn't expecting him to do well this early at all.
I went with Freeman, but you could make a case for pretty much all of these guys.

soybean 11-06-2010 01:14 AM

Matt Ryan is the AJ Hawk of QBs.

MichaelJordanEberle (sabf) 11-06-2010 01:15 AM

Stafford. Dude is a manimal throwing to a meast.

Draft King 11-06-2010 01:43 AM

IMO:

1. Ryan
2. Stafford
3. Flacco
4. Bradford
5. Freeman
6. Sanchez

Chucky 11-06-2010 01:51 AM

I really haven't seen Ryan take that next major step in his progression from his rookie year yet and that really makes me wonder how much better he is really gonna get. Most of the other people on this list have all-pro potentital while I just don't see that in Ryan

Meh, sounds like your a rival fan trying to bring him down. He's down everything asked of him this season. He's better than Hasselbeck, but he also isn't Peyton Manning. I would argue he does have All-Pro potential, because although he does not have the "elite" arm strength of some of these other guys, I think he understands the game better and is clutch as hell in the 4th quarter.

yourfavestoner 11-06-2010 01:56 AM



It's not even close for me.

Just. Winz. Gamez.

holt_bruce81 11-06-2010 02:05 AM

1. Sam Bradford
2. Matt Ryan
3. Josh Freeman
4. Mark Sanchez
5. Matthew Stafford
6. Joe Flacco
