The Colts Conundrum:Salvage The Season Or Get Really Lucky

Very rarely does a team with arguably one of the best quarterbacks of all time enter a phase of self doubt. However when that man is Peyton Manning and your team depends on his expertise to get you in the right situation or play, then when he goes missing you look like you have never played the game before. 

This off season Peyton had his third neck surgery. When you start talking injuries of the neck and head, it is really time to think about life after football. The Colts threw Manning a ton of cash to get him interested in playing again and despite his injuries, Manning is hell bent on returning to the game of football. 

Without Manning the Colts are a shell of their former selves. The offense that was put in to give Manning more autonomy to make changes doesn't work if he isn't at the helm, or a person with his similar skill set is not at the helm. Let's face it, there aren't a lot of guys like Peyton Manning out there in this world. 

However, Manning is making 23 million dollars this season and he probably won't even play a snap. If he misses the entire season, the Colts are in an interesting predicament. Chances are without Manning they will have the worst record in the NFL unless the ghost of Johnny Unitas invades the body of Kerry Collins and wills them to a few victories. Chances are that will not happen as the Reece Bobby (Ricky Bobby's Dad) look alike is prone to turning the ball over.

Redskins Fans: Do You Believe Rex Grossman Is Better Than Donovan McNabb

According to reports, Washington will start Rex Grossman at quarterback Sunday against the Cowboys over Donovan McNabb. 

This is somewhat surprising. 

On a conference call Wednesday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was asked if McNabb would start Sunday and replied, “You want to go through our whole lineup or do you want me to go through each position or do you just want to start with the quarterback?” 

This just doesn’t really set well with me. At some point you have to stop disrespecting the legacy of McNabb. If you are going to replace him with someone, it should be someone who is better. I guess Mike Shanahan needed someone else to go after since Haynesworth can no longer be blamed for the teams debacles.

Shanahan said the same practice plan has been in place all year regarding the snaps between McNabb and Grossman, but this possibility has been out there for the last couple of weeks.

Tyrod Taylor versus Terrelle Pryor: More Than Just Runners These Kids Can Throw

Last night I recalled a lot about college football and the pressures that come along with being an elite player. There is a lot of pressure on you when you are the man on a team that has high expectations.

There is nothing wrong with being a dual threat quarterback. Some of the best quarterbacks in college football history have been dual threat quarterbacks. But when a quarterback gets this label, they are likely to be put under the microscope and labeled not an NFL prototype, unless of course your name is Steve Young.

Running quarterbacks have been a dime a dozen over the past few seasons in college football. Guys like Tim Tebow last year and Vince Young a few years earlier just found ways to win in college and when it came NFL draft time they were labeled not ready due to the fact that they had the ability to use their legs too.

2010 brings us two of the best dual threat quarterbacks in the country. Tyrod Taylor of Virginia Tech and Terrelle Pryor of Ohio State are both exciting players. Both have the ability to throw and run, but they also have the ability to turn “water into wine”.  I call this the Jesus effect. They can take a play that looks like a 6 yard sack and turn it into a 15 yard gain or in some cases an 80 yard touchdown.

Last night I was asked if I could take one of them who would I take. The answer to the question wasn’t as easy as I thought coming into the season. If you were to have asked me that at the beginning of July I would have said Taylor easily. I felt like Taylor is a more polished passer and more instinctive with the football.

2010 BCSOM Fantasy Football Draft Guide - Quarterbacks

Fantasy football is very easy to play and the variety of systems and sites provide everything you need to get started. Fantasy football lets you try your skills as a fantasy coach. I suggest joining a random public league if this is your first time playing, rather then joining your friends in a league and being the butt of all jokes.

To join a public league all you need to do is go to one of the many fantasy football sites and sign up. Here are a few suggestions of popular fantasy football sites: FleaFlickerYahoo Fantasy FootballESPN Fantasy FootballMSN Fantasy Football

After you join a league, you scout for and draft players, compete against other fantasy coaches, and use all your skills to make it to the playoffs. This is where I come in. I am going to help you figure out who you should draft based on where you are picking. These picks are for traditional scoring leagues which do not give points for receptions. Today we will take a look at the quarterbacks.
