Mana Silva was cut by the Cowgirls today, I liked him out of college..cant do much worse then Mitchell has been....
Can we get some kind of 'draft' or 'draft prospects...' thread going...?
Brett Hundley had another monster game for UCLA.(almost three hundred yards, 2 passing,2 rushing TDs)
The Jim Mora led Bruins ,with this 19 year old red shirt Freshman are leading the country
In Offense,and he has silently climbed QB rankings and is 7th in the country in yardage before the end of this weekends games.Cant wait to see what this kid does next.
A word of caution, though... after watching a college QB for three years, I was convinced I was seeing the next 'great' QB in the NFL.
I watched this QB pull off miracle comebacks; I saw him have games where he would throw the football 20+ yards consistently and still end completing 70% of his passes; I saw him make some of the most impressive throws any QB has ever made; I saw this QB grow from an athlete with an arm to, IMO, an NFL ready QB, complete with audibles at the line, pass protection adjustments and a firm grasp of his offense.
That QB? JaMarcus Russell from LSU. You just never know how they'll pan out in the NFL.
Either way, I watched some really amazing QB performances yesterday. Stephen Morris and Mike Glennon (Mia vs NCST) put on a show - tons of accurate, downfield passing. I knew a little bit about Glennon, and he was able to make NFL throws. Morris, however, has an absolute MONSTER arm - he can throw that thing 40+ yards with zip.
Geno Smith put on an epic display. I've actually liked Geno Smith since he threw for 450 against LSU - I always value a QB who can succeed against superior competetion with an inferior supporting cast.
As popular as they both are your not gonna sell out the Rosebowl or the colliseum too often(LOL).I support all the schools though,Those kids are studying,and working and practicing so hard everyday, I find it misguided when people say this school sux or that school cheats,I realize its in fun but I think they would be better served remembering WHO they are talking about and the amount of time and effort these young people are putting into this.
Watching Hundley isnt going to catch your eye the way the guys your talking about do.It is like a a drip of water carving stone.He is poised beyond his years ,he never panics.He slides around the pocket like hes strolling through the park and even when pressure gets to him, he never compounds the problem by making a poor throw(3 ints on the year) or running bacvkwards.
He takes what the defense gives him and is very acurate.He hasnt shown what kind of arm he has,the offense is a WC style short passing, but hes doing this with really no WRs to speak of. He has 5 starts @ the college level and is 4-1,the offense leads the nation,and his numbers are impressive.
I dont know if he has the skill set for the pros,but it will be fun watching his development.
This is Bretts first college snap.
he doesnt look to Run,I think that was a warning shot to the Pac-12.He has stayed in the pocket for the most part since.
Heres a good article on him.

Cop asks me Friday morning if I realize that my lights are missing and I tell him about the sidebox full of venison. He wants to know if I want to tell that story to his brother-in-law the game warden.
I politely declined and took my ticket.....
