Just curious - How do you feel about Griffin? He was obviously a Big 12 QB who put up huge numbers. I really don't see that point being brought up with him and it somewhat baffles me.
It should be noted, but I also think Griffin's physical tools speak for themselves. Great arm, requisite touch and accuracy to go with the great arm, top of the line athleticism, extremely intelligent kid. I think he would have found success anywhere. Plus, beyond Kendall Wright, his supporting talent at Baylor was some of the worst in the conference which makes up a little for how soft the defenses are.
Weeden might have the intelligence and maybe the "touch and accuracy." I don't think his arm is anything special (he had to quit baseball due to injury remember...supposedly doesn't affect his football throwing motion but why risk it?) and he's not even on the same planet in terms of athleticism. Move him out of the Big 12 and you have an older than usual "JAG." At best.
a video detailing his health, and that his neck is not the issue, but more so the nerve regeneration and that he has no more of a chance that his neck will be injured during a hit than anyone else.... the big thing is just waiting for his nerve to regenerate

This is important for people who think he's damaged goods for some reason. They believe in pessimism over professional doctors and science.
Cecil Lammey saying Broncos have some interest in Brock Osweiler, Brandon Weeden, and BJ Coleman.
Osweiler makes a ton of sense for so many reasons. If I'm Denver I'd be looking at a QB with that 2nd rd pick anyway, I think it's huge with this entire Peyton Manning scenario to make sure they take a QB they like semi-early that they can develop for 2-3 years. Maybe Peyton gets hurt, worst case you have a signal caller you liked sitting behind Peyton Manning and having Elway in his ear.
That's an incredible scenario for any QB and increases the odds of that guy panning out, you've got to take advantage of that and be ready to keep on rolling once Peyton is done.
I trust Elway is going to get a guy he likes though, he hasn't gotten that chance so I think he'll want a guy that suits his preference at QB. That said, I really love Foles if you can develop him and not throw him out there. He's gonna be a solid starter, could exceed that down the line, doesn't have the upside of an Osweiler but he's not quite as risky either.
