Brock is also perfectly fine with sitting a couple of years, which is a big plus.

Wilson would be too. He's not an ego guy. He's just so good that he's playing himself off the bench.

So far I like what Elway has said about QBs:
Would not have traded Jay
Called Luck a once a generational player (in 2011)
Scouting Weeden if Denver didn't land Manning
Not buying into the Tebow hype as a QB

I'll stick with Brock

Right now it's looking like the Eagles scored with Foles. And for that matter Brandon Boykin looks like a better pick than Omar Bolden. But I suppose far too early to make such calls...

Bolden has a higher ceiling, but both are very capable players in a pinch.

Let's let some real bullets fly before we crown Wilson. Go look at Ryan leafs rookie preseason stats and you would of thought Colts picked wrong qb.

I wanted Wilson before the draft but many around here kept letting me know he was too short, they exaggerated his 5'11 height, he had a great OL. I did kind of question it then, but his passing efficiency wasn't something that could be ignored. I really wanted him.

Didn't know much at all about Osweiler before the draft except his height. I had some hesitation there as all I could think of was Dan McGwire who was 6'8, picked in the first round and didn't do anything. It's really too early to tell with either one, but I'd go with Wilson because I want to have been right. We have Osweiler so I'm hoping he does great things.

I am actually a bit surprised that this poll isn't even close.

Kirk Cousins, Russel Wilson, and Nick Foles all have looked good so far.


Why didn't we draft Turbin?

Poll is useless TODAY or for the next few seasons IF everything works according to plan. Neither will do more than take over for Xanders ordering and delivering the pizza's and scratching Peyton's balls when they itched.

Now if you are taking Peyton out of the conversation... Wilson is far better suited to start the season this year than Brock is, Long term could end up being Oz.

Wilson is a very good pocket passer. He was behind a huge offensive line at Wisconson and did just fine from the pocket. Bad argument.

Jack Elway would vote for Brock twice, if he could. But his Dad won't let him use the family computer, so Jack can't vote. That makes Jack sad.

I'm sticking with Ossy, I know everyone is jizzing over Wilson right now and he has looked good, but I think over the long term Brocks future with us looks pretty good!

Maybe things will change, but right now Wilson is clearly the better QB. So I've got to vote Wilson. Too bad my vote does nothing to change that Wilson is not on our team.

Indeed. In the preseason he's already shone an exceptional ability to find throwing lanes despite his lack of height. It's not like the lineman on the field when he was playing at Wisconsin weren't all pretty much NFL size as well. He wasn't drafted because players his height have never really succeeded at the NFL level (other than Flutie). But people seem to confuse the lack of something happening in the past for the impossibility of that thing ever happening, which is highly flawed thinking.
