    Great back and forth game, for those that didn't get to see it. Mem D forced Rosen to short passes mostly. Rosen was accurate as hell. Had some drops. all in all looked great. Ferguson put on an air show. Accurate ball placement as well. I would take either of these guys.
    I'd take either player as well. I got the feeling at points of the game that Rosen became over confident and made some throws he shouldn't have.

    I didn't know who Ferguson was until you told me about him. He's definitely got the goods. Poised, good decisions, accurate arm.

    If Trevor Siemian has a big year, Paxton Lynch will be available via trade........ I'd be intrigued. Probably take a 2nd.

    I live in Denver. It's pretty much all but said that Lynch is a bust. The local radio guys that attended pre season practices said he is woeful. Accuracy issues, decision making issues, confidence issues. According to the local media out here Lynch does not have what it takes to play in the NFL. He's had 2 years to beat out a 7th round pick in Trevor Siemian and hasn't really come close to taking the job. Then when he went down injured they brought in Brock Osweiler. I think that's all that needs to be said about Lynch.

    I think you're wrong about Lynch. He did play well last season when Siemian was out. He has a different guy this year than last. Not every QB succeeds in every system. I think, believe, Lynch could be awesome here in this system. That said, I don't believe that ever happens. He'll probably end up in Jax and make that team an annual contender.

    2nd round pick for Paxton Lynch would be an incredible waste. No thank you

    I saw the first 2 and a half quarters of Lamar Jackson. Forget those garbage time numbers. I saw a woefully inaccurate passer. That guy is NOT an NFL quarterback.

    I haven't watched Lou vs Clem yet. 50% completion equals 397 yards and 3 TDs seems impressive at a glance. Will know more tomorrow.

    The game was already out of hand before he put up any numbers.

    If you paid close enough attention you would've seen multiple drops by his wideouts that were right in the numbers. Jackson is the only player on that team. Give him capaple NFL players and a good O-line and he'll be amazing. Louisville also has one of the worst Defenses I've seen all year. I understand all the hate for the guy. I mean they keep comparing him to Vick. My question is why the comparisons to Vick? Because he's black? That's about the only way you can compare the two. Like Vick, Jackson is an excellent runner and has a strong arm. That is where the comparison stops. Lamar Jackson is bigger and is a far better passer than Vick ever was. I really wish the media would stop with this comparison. Vick wasn't half the talent that Lamar Jackson is today.

    We simply have two different opinions. I sure hope that the Steelers don't share yours.

    Going to be lots of differing opinions in this thread. Who's on your top 3-5 currently?

    Looking at the highlights only, he plays a lot like Tebow or Prescott. Wouldn't mind seeing more actual game action on him.
