Interesting points

Brock Osweiler gets a red flag because of how big he is. Now QB that big has ever succeeded.

“In all my experience in the National Football League I can not think of a QB 6’8 that was ever successful”

“We’re losing corner-backs to baskeball. Guys that would be potential corners are playing point guards for somebody somewhere.”

Bill Polian on Luck and RGIII

Comparing Peyton to Leaf was comparing apples to oranges.

Comparing RGIII and Luck is comparing two different types of apples. Mcintosh and Red Delicious (note: made up the 2nd type couldn’t remember the other apple he said)

Kirk Cousins:

Bill Polian “Decision making is a little bit of a worry”

Right and he can’t throw that well. I’m not a fan of Cousins and I just don’t get the love.

Parcells On Tight Ends and drafting them in the top 10:

I don’t think I could draft a TE in the top 10. They don’t impact the game enough. I think it’s good somewhere between 10 and 20 I’m open to do it.

Doug Martin is listed as the 4th best Running back on Parcells’ big board.
