    There have been a lot of great “college” QB’s who never made it past a year or two in the NFL. Ain’t the same.

    Mark, just because you went to Oregon you find pro Mariota articles, you’re such a homer. Try to be more objective. I think this kid has something special, and would be a good investment. Don’t agree with sitting him to learn. If he’s the best talent at Q.B. on your roster you play him. We started a 12 year vet, and ended up 2-14, let em play. Mark, I know you wish you went to FSU but tell me, why does Winston squint so much when play? Does he need, and not where glasses?

      Haha thanks for the chuckle surferdude. If you take mariotta first you can’t sit him. That’s why I really hate the Rodgers comparisons. Rodgers got to sit for four years behind a hall of famer. That’s unheard of in today’s nfl.

    Draft him and alter your offensive system to fit his skills.

    I tell you one thing I hope the Bucs brass has already made up their minds about the 1st pick and are dedicating all their resources to the other rounds. Other teams don’t know who will be there in the first round. We need to use this to our advantage and make up our minds and gain a leg in the lower rounds.
