Lack of mobility and body type. I mean there's quite a few major similarities.


yes they have a lot oh physical features that are the same but that is where it ends. compare their college stats and you see DA Weeden are night and day different. Weedens College Career passer rating flirts around 70% where DAs flirts around 50%. DA was always known as a questionable decision making QB, Weeden not so much.



Beat me too it......this was exactly the point I was going to make....If I hadnt read this whole thread, I would have had a duplciate post right under you Laughing

The only thing that really has me worried about Weeden is his pocket presence. That is what separates the ok QBs from the Greats. This has gone back to OSU if he cant fix being somewhat comfortable when stressed and still throwing strikes he is not going to be a championship quarterback.


I was actually pretty impressed with how he handled the pressure last week. I saw him step up into the pocket, away from pressure and make some nice throws.


Yeah, that's something I think Weeden has improved at from week one until now.


I know a lot of ppl see different elements in his game that resemble some better QBs. I think he needs to watch some film on Roethlisberger. As much as I hate him and everything he stands for, BB makes moves that give himself so much more time. He sometimes adjusts the pocket all by himself, and that awareness is what makes him so hard to beat. Right now with our O-Line as suspect, and Weeden's growing confidence, I think he needs to stretch that part of his game, so he knows where to find space, get there quickly, and go through his reads again, or tuck it and get some easy run yardage.

Personally I see Carson Palmer. Its really just a question of whether he develops into pre or post knee destruction Carson. Hopefully the former.

Sure, but you could say he has a lot of similarities to Joe Flacco too.


I was actually leaning towards that too




That is my hope....



I know I said that here somewhere? huh, oh well..
