    B-Dub's mock off-season 2012 1.0
    by BarronWade
    Fisher is our head coach Williams in most likely our DC lets goo with a mock

    Key Departures:
    Jason Brown (dead weight)
    Brandon Lloyd (thanks for some exciting plays this year good luck with McD in NE)
    Ron Bartell (coming off an injury with an inflated contract)
    Justin King (idk i just love seeing his name under the departure list)

    Key re-signs:
    Danny Boy
    Darian Stewart
    Jacob Bell
    Tony Wraggle
    Cadilac Williams

    Key Arrivals:
    Cortland Finnagan DB
    Albert Haynsworth DT (vet min/ lets see if fisher can re-establish this former beast)
    Aubroyo Franklin DT (we are stopping the run this year!!)

    Draft note: i would love to trade with the browns but i am not going to mock any trades


    Round 1: Justin Blackmon, WR
    Analysis: O-line issues are so overated we have talent on the O-line and with out Lloyd our WR core is just a bunch of question marks...Get the Playmaker!

    Round 2: Ronnell Lewis, OLB
    Analysis: It might look like a reach now but idc...Gregg williams needs his OLB to get to the pass rusher and i am sick up puttin a random scrub to line with JLau...Williams scheme will make Lewis look like a star and one more thing he is a GREAT TACKLER...We will not be the worst tackling team next year.

    Round 3: Ben Jones, C
    Analysis: TBH i still believe Saffold is a quality OT and Jason Smith can potentially be a good OT, we have Dahl, we need a good Center to solidify the entire O-line...Jones can be a leader and he is physical to help Jax with his up the middle runs

    Round 4: Keenan Robinson, OLB
    Analysis: 2 OLBs in our first 4 picks? YES! Fisher is known for his stingy D and Williams for his blitz happy schemes so we need a LB that can zone and cover the TEs in Willams exotic blitzing schemes

    Round 5: Brandon Lloyd rams 2011 highlight reel

    Later rounds i expect us to address Defensive depth in the secondary

    Draft Notes:

    -I did not take a RB because i do not think the mid round RBs are an upgrade over Cadi (cadi can run and catch the ball and can also block)

    -Our Oline will look similar to last year: Saffold-Bell-JONES-Dahl-Smith obviously we can upgrade the LG but right now i think this is a solid group

    -Danario Alexander will be our starting #2 until he gets injured

    -WR depth Blackmon-Alexander-Amendola-Salas-Pettis or Gibson

    Clutch Factor:
    by RamWraith
    Bulger holds off Manning, Brees
    Michael Lazarus /

    Things have tightened up considerably in our Clutch Factor quarterback rankings.
    How close is it?

    Thirteen different quarterbacks are ranked in the top three in our six categories, yet our No. 1 quarterback this week isn't one of them.

    Marc Bulger is the fourth-best QB in the two-minute drill for his highest ranking, but he is the only quarterback ranked in the top 10 in five of the six categories (the only exception is his No. 21 spot when leading by seven or less), giving him just enough consistency to jump three spots from last week and hold off Peyton Manning and Drew Brees for the No. 1 spot.

    The categories our ranking system is based on:

    Last two minutes in each half: How good is the two-minute drill?

    Fourth quarter: the game is often in the balance

    Red zone: Can they punch it in?

    Ahead by seven points or less: Time to put a team away.

    Behind by seven or less: One TD and the lead is back.

    Third down: Often a last chance to avoid a punt.
    After several e-mail requests, here are the top 3 in all six of our categories:
    Last 2: 1. Rex Grossman (156.6), 2. Drew Brees (150.7), 3. Jake Plummer (140.3).
    4th qtr. 1. Phillip Rivers (126.8 ), 2. David Carr (125.6), 3. Brees (113.6).
    Red Zone: 1. Bruce Gradkowski (127.1), 2. J.P. Losman (118.4), 3. Eli Manning (114.7).
    Small lead: 1. Plummer (126.0), 2. Mark Brunell (119.4), 3. Matt Hasselbeck (114.6).
    Small deficit: : 1. Peyton Manning (113.3), 2. Damon Huard (108.3), 3. Hasselbeck (108.2).
    Third down: 1. Peyton Manning (130.7), 2. Rivers (109.4), 3. Chad Pennington (106.0).

    Statistics are based on 2006 season results only. Those quarterbacks eligible for the NFL passer rating title (35 this week) are ranked in each of the six categories by their passer rating. The QB with the best rating in each category is given one point, the second-best two and so on down. The point totals in the six categories are then added up and QBs are sorted according to point total the fewer the better.

    Rk Last QB Last 2 4th qtr Red Zone Ahead <7 Behind <7 3rd down TOTAL Comment
    1. 4. Marc Bulger 4 7 7 21 7 5 51 Leader of a very tight pack
    2. 8. Peyton Manning 14 4 16 19 1 1 55 New England awaits
    3. 2. Drew Brees 2 3 23 8 4 15 55 Piled up some garbage-time numbers
    4. 1. Phillip Rivers 18.5 1 6 17 13 2 57.5 Didn't really do anything wrong
    5. 3. Donovan McNabb 13 5 17 6.5 5 13 59.5 Heading in the wrong direction
    6. 5. David Carr 6 2 13 11 24 7 63 Wasn't that bad when he wasn't fumbling

    9. 9. Matt Hasselbeck...
