Brady Quinn: Bust?

I love it when this stuff happens.

Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn, who hasn't thrown a pass in anger in two months, is all of a sudden a shitty player.

The Sporting News has a story out (right click to open in new screen) claiming that anonymous scouts say Quinn is a third- or fourth-round talent, and is the "biggest fraud in the draft." They compare him to Joey Harrington.

That's not good for Quinn, but I'm not buying it.

Scott Wright,
who is probably the best web source for draft news, has Quinn as the No. 1 prospect, and why not?

Here are Brady's numbers from 2005-06: 63.3 percent completion, 8.1 yards per attempt, and the kicker:


Folks, that's a 5-to-1 TD to INT ratio, and that's not commonplace -- especially when you're playing for a top-notch Division 1 team. Add the pro seasoning of playing under Charlie Weis, and Quinn as a bust just doesn't add up.

Rick Mirer, who got himself drafted No. 1 from ND 15 years ago, threw 33 TDs and 15 INTs his final 2 years.

Even Peyton Manning, who left college ball with the best INT-per-pass of all time, threw 23 INTs and 57 TDs his final two seasons.

I know college numbers don't always translate, but unless Weis is the greatest coach in the history of the world, Quinn is pretty damn good.

As a Vikings fan, I can only hope he slips to No. 7. Ah hell, the Vikings would probably be too dumb to take him anyway.

Bring back Tice!

The numbers by themselves hold water, but look at them in the context of each game, especially against quality opponents.

The REAL reason some people are saying he's a fraud is because Quinn could not win a big game this year. He folds up like an oragami turtle under pressure.

I've had my iPad for close to 2 months now and I'm telling you, Steve jobs certainly has his way of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't scarcity to secure to indemnify on the side of a new specialty in rank to get the micro SIM card. So I've kinda well-founded lived with my iPad only where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was to come my chum introduced me to a superb technique circa this stew -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and PERIPHERY!

I purchased the [url=]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from, in the Networking group, underneath my friend's encouragement, and I believe he gets points or commission from my purchase, since he's a affiliate. The router AP is highly little, lightweight and convenient. So these days I can connect to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer essential to go in quest of acme and coarse seeking a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor pay out so much of my notes on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. Into the bargain, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports mellifluous much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Take off a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my effervescence so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not necessarily bear to turn manual labourer in assistance with coffee.

And to reflect on I was considering paying extra to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so thrilled that that's not necessary anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can honest connect to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as sustained as there is signal. This is not a technology thingumajig per se, but it has certainly made my lifetime immeasurably more efficient! More than that, I'm able to save my money that I would normally disburse on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, by the conduct, makes me query whether it's a ploy nigh Steve Jobs, to organize launched the 3G iPad portrayal purely much later, so that wifi cafes can get a kick piles of firm from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=][/url] would possibly also be skilled to authorize to me download and play around with my apps on my iTouch, granted I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a poser I should think. This $100+ may be the crush bills I've vomit up since it enables me to entertain a sort of WiFi nucleus wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can fifty-fifty start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi for sacrifice access to them. I'm steady I can without doubt pocket abandon the $100 this progressing! Alternatively, peradventure I can start being an affiliate of too, since I'm starting to buy more gadgets and tools there, and take been spreading word up to my family and friends. Not only that, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' interval, and I contemplate this Huawei 3G WiFi router would make a impressive premium as a replacement for profuse of my tech geek friends. I'm satisfied they'll also worth how sleek and bold the router looks!
