Time to get a franchise QB


Well I have been ridiculed for being a Glennon fan and also because I wasn't a big fan of Teddy Bridgewater unlike most on this site. That's cool. Most of you think my views on 1st round QB's are crazy and that I feel that we should bank on trying to find a franchise QB outside the 1st round. That's false. I feel that if the QB is worthy of a 1st round choice and the team loves him then draft him. I am against drafting a QB in the first round in hopes of him blossoming into a franchise QB (Freeman) sorry I had to do it... Anyways I wasn't really impressed with the QB class this year. Bridgewater... Meh... Bortles....naw...Carr? Hes warming up to me but only if we trade back but not at 7. Those are the QB's that have been mocked in the 1st round.

But the only QB that i have consistently loved and would be totally fine with previously and now totally excited about is Johnny Manziel. Now the only reason i haven't been more vocal about him is because I doubted that the team would actually want him... Especially in Tedford's "offense". We have heard so much about it all season and how Manziel would fit it. Well they wondered how Chip Kelly's offense would be in the NFL and how he would need a mobile QB to run it and how Foles couldn't do it.... Well we were wrong.. (so far). Sander, Jben05, DP, 4QB, and others who clamor for the bucs to have a "franchise QB" constantly say that its necessary and if you see a QB you love in the 1st round you take him. If the reports are correct Manziel is the guy they want.

Now most people who are against Manziel will say hes a potential off the field problem waiting to happen. His style cant translate to the NFL.... etc.... well let me tell you.. for one this guy aint Tim Tebow. He will translate and its up to the coaches to teach him will and keep him from getting hurt and still allowing him to be Johnny Football. And if you are worried abput Johnny football partying and whatever stuff he got in trouble with in college just stop it... He's got some growing up to do but so have alot of rookie QB's coming into the league.... He will have McCown to mentor him as well and this guy if drafted could be the superstar QB us bucs fans have long dreamt about. So for all that have said we need to get a franchise QB... we have a chance to do so.... and Manziel is the guy to get.
