Default QB?

Depending on how things develop in the criminal sphere, it might be time to draft some depth behind Dixon... just saying...

Any third- or fourth-round QBs of interest?

Default Re: QB?

this is the scenario i think many on this board who are sick of ben would prefer-

trade ben to the browns or cardinals for matt leinart/brady quinn.

select clausen with a 1st pick.

voila... problems solved.

we may not sniff a superbowl for the next 15 years but atleast we wouldnt have to hear other teams fans calling our qb "rapistburger".

If we take one, it'll be late. Guys like Dixon and St. Pierre were taken in the 5th.

i think dixon could be really good. he was great in college and was predicted to go in the 1st before hurting himself. he can throw plus has the breakaway spead to take it home on any play. i wouldnt mind turning back into a running team

Default Re: QB?

You don't just trade your QB after he leads you to two Super Bowl victories. Why would a man worth over 100 Million sexually assault or rape someone? These little twits are in it for the money, it happens every day now, some poor guy gets accused of sexual assault and his life is ruined, even though he really did nothing. They spend YEARS and LOT'S of money trying to prove themselves innocent, and even IF they succeed in doing so, it's still stuck with them for life. I've seen it too many times, and it's absolutely pathetic. IF he for some reason did do it then yes trade him, but you're innocent until proven guilty even though it will be stuck with him for life.

What do you think happens more often: a woman being sexually assaulted? Or a woman lying to the police, her family and friends about being sexually assaulted? Where exactly do you come off saying "I've seen it too many times"? How is it that you are so well-placed, so often, to be able to make such a pronouncement? This doesn't speak too well of you, I dare say.

As for Ben, what can I say? It's not like he's my (or your) best friend. I have no idea what he's capable of doing off of the field, and neither do you. What does his money have to do with rape?

So far I like Tony's suggestion the best, although BKAnthem's idea of drafting yet another WVU QB is certainly intriguing, in some bizarre, obsessive-compulsive way. Choices, choices...

Sadly sexual assault does happen all the time, but you would be VERY surprised at how many times the person lies or completely over exaggerates. I have seen it many times, the person will try and blackmail to get money and try to file charges, once the so called assaulter counter charges and takes it to court the "victim" will more often then not drop the charges and it will for the most part be done with. I don't have to be "well-placed", it happens every day in courts, the "victim" ends up dropping all charges because they now have a chance to be exposed as a fraud and liar. I do feel bad for the people that are sexually assaulted but it's hard when you've felt bad for people that say they were, only to find out they lied only for money and to make the other persons life miserable. I know it's hard for you to understand, but until you know or have seen someone lie like that to destroy someone else, you won't know how Ben feels. More often then not when it involves someone rich (like Ben) it's about the money, and they don't care whose life they ruin to get it. Ben has said both cases were untrue, but if he is proven guilty, then yes get him the hell off the team, even kick him out of the league because i wouldn't be able to cheer for a QB that did those things and lied about it.
