Kyler Murray or Josh Rosen?

TrueBlue22 : 3/17/2019 11:29 am
We really don't know where we will be in the draft order in 2020 (the schedule this year is better than usual). We know where are in 2019.

I watched Josh Rosen's work for the Cardinals last year. Keep in mind their O-line wasn't good. He looked good to me, like the guy at UCLA. Makes excellent throws, strong arm, puts the ball where the receiver is going, has some mobility, looks like a leader.

I watched Kyler Murray. Cannon & accurate arm, able to run when needs & runs well, throws 90% from from the pocket. 5' 10" but sees the field well, it appears.

I think either QB can be the next great Giants QB. The price the Cardinals will extract for the 1st overall pick for Murray is going to be extremely high, however.

What do you do if you are Dave Gettleman?

1. Trade what it takes and get Murray. Could be a superstar.
2. Trade a good amount for Rosen.
3. Wait till 2020 for the QB and hope for the best.

As of today, I would go with option (2).
I prefer the Josh Rosen route.

Physically he fits the bill the Giants seem to like in a QB. He performed adequately last year for a horrible Cardinal team and he demonstrated his durability.

Adding Rosen should not cost us anymore than our second round pick, allowing us to add an impact player on defense and six and pssibly ay seventeen as well.
If Murray is your guy, go get him.  
732NYG : 3/17/2019 11:35 am : link
Nobody ever wants to trade picks, but do you think the Eagles regret trading for Wentz? Do we regret trading for Eli?
Just a reminder  
SirYesSir : 3/17/2019 11:37 am : link
that we don't really have any control over this answer. Arizona does.

If the Cards want Murray, then they take him and make Rosen available and we can potentially pursue that.

If the Cards trust Rosen and want to trade out of 1 for value then we can pursue that.

If you're only looking at these two guys as options, then we'd have to do what we're told, and see if the price is acceptable - a price others might be competing to pay.
Can only get Murray if the Cards donít want him  
Oscar : 3/17/2019 11:38 am : link
In that scenario I donít know what heíd cost because I donít know who would move up to get him. Plausible he could fall to #6.

Rosen I am intrigued but only for a second round pick max. I would also understand if the Giants just arenít interested, although I think a player with his talent is worth bringing in even if they arenít in love with him. If you can get him for a third rounder (which might not be possible) then itís probably worth it just to have him in the building and practice for a year to make a throrough assessement. Worst case scenario you blow a third round pick on a guy whoís not the answer, itís a low risk move.
Option 3.  
allstarjim : 3/17/2019 11:43 am : link
But good job with the original thread content.

Murray might end up being a great player, but trading massive draft capital to move up for a 5-10 QB is a mistake.

Trading for a bum like Rosen is an even worse mistake.

You can't screw up by waiting, you can only screw up by getting the wrong guy.

A 2nd rounder on Grier is better than the first two options. Best thing to me is to trade back, get an extra 2020 first, so that it's easier to trade up to get your man next year if need be. Having two first rounders next year also means two chances to naturally be in position to get the right guy.

The only QB I could see the Giants using #6 or #17 (he probably won't last that long), is Drew Lock.
If Murray was 4 or 5 inches taller  
Beer Man : 3/17/2019 11:44 am : link
it would be a no brainier. The advantages to Rosen, is that he is a very good QB prospect, could be obtained without giving up the 6th pick in the draft, and the Cards will have to eat his signing bonus. Consequently, the Giants would be getting someone with the talent to become the next franchise QB, would keep the 6th and could use it building-up the D, and would not take as big of hit to the salary cap.
Murray would not line up  
ryanmkeane : 3/17/2019 11:46 am : link
with what Giants have been doing. To waste their draft capital on the QB this year when they are trying to improve the team with a loaded defensive draft and depth at OL would be against everything weíve seen from Gettleman so far.
If reports are true  
Doubledeuce22 : 3/17/2019 11:47 am : link
That the Giants donít like Haskins because he is not mobile then I think we can rule out Rosen as well. No need to trade up for Murray. If weíre making a trade it should be for Russell Wilson.

Don't agree at all. Didn't Rosen put up better/similar numbers than Darnold at the combine? Rosen just chooses to stand in the pocket and make his throws. Remember, mobility to Shurmur is more than running. It is being able to buy more time and that means being mobile inside the pocket. Just because he said mobile doesn't mean outside the pocket. And since Rosen has the ability he should still be able to run plays on designed roll outs like Eli did a bunch this year.

Doubledeuce22 : 3/17/2019 12:06 pm : link
Ran the same 40 time at the combine. While I donít think the Giants are looking for a running QB, they want one who can move outside the pocket and make plays. Hopefully they donít go after a QB this year and wait til next years crop. Donít care for any of these QBs and itís worth the gamble of waiting til next year.
It's clearly Rosen..  
bw in dc : 3/17/2019 12:08 pm : link
because of the economics of his deal and the fact he has a one year of NFL experience under his belt. And it goes without saying that his arm and fundamental skills are plus-plus.

Murray is the superior athlete with an incredible upside as a play-maker. But that height and overall size it too risky for my blood...

4.92 40 time is not a QB that can move. What is your justification on this? He is a sit in the pocket passer which this league is moving away from. Not even sure if this is the right direction to go in for QBs but it seems like thatís what Shurmur and DG are looking for.
If Rosen's personality is good enough for  
CT Charlie : 3/17/2019 12:09 pm : link
Shurmur, Mara, Gettleman and NY Media, I'd take Rosen immediately. On the 50-minute-every-pass-play-with-the-Cards reel, he looked as good as peak Eli (even better on screens and quick passes to the flat) and he was operating behind a line worse than ours.
It's not the Giants choice. The choice is clearly with the Cardinals.  
Ira : 3/17/2019 12:14 pm : link
I like both qb's, but I'm not sure I'd pay the price to get Murray if he were available. I like Murray better than Rosen because of his mobility, but my guess is that he's the one that the Cards take and keep.
this might be a bad idea but Murray could be used as a weapon  
edavisiii : 3/17/2019 12:18 pm : link
If he sits a year behind Eli for year one he could come in and do some of the Taysom Hill does in NO. He could run the wildcat, a few option runs etc. Guys like him can do more than hold a clipboard.
A lot of teams will be looking for a QB next year  
TrueBlue22 : 3/17/2019 12:22 pm : link
I can see us winning 8 games this year. I doubt the big 3 will be available where we are picking next year. So we may have to trade picks next year, too.
My guess  
BigBlueinDE : 3/17/2019 12:24 pm : link
is that we make a play for Rosen as I do not think they see any of the QB's in this class as guys are franchise QB's.

If they can get him for a 2nd rounder as has been rumored, I think you pull the trigger, so to speak and focus on OL and Defense going forward.

11 picks next year. Build the lines up this year and if need be then trade up for a QB next year.
Rosen's line wasn't just bad  
Jay on the Island : 3/17/2019 12:32 pm : link
It was the worst in football. Not to mention that Rosen was only 21 playing with one of the worst WR and TE's groups in the NFL. His head coach was fired after just one year because he was in way over his head.

I will admit that I wanted Darnold or Rosen last year in that order and I would be happy if the Giants could get him for their 2nd round pick unless of course he isn't truly focused on football. If the Giants came out of the draft with Rosen, Montez Sweat, and either Christian Wilkins, Jawaan Taylor, Devin Bush, or Andre Dillard at 17 then I would be far more hopeful about the Giants chances next season.

Bill L : 3/17/2019 1:21 pm : link
Murray is a poor fit for this team. His measureables and potential baseball future make him too risky to rely upon anyway.

Likewise, Rosen is foolís gold. *Even* if we discount his performance last year and pretend it never happened, and it looked like he had the ability to be our qb of the future, we would rely upon him for a year, maybe two, and then after he wobbles away I to retirement, we would be stuck in qb hell looking to be in position to draft a new one.

Itís been reported that plan B was Chubb. When you get to plan C or D or whatever, why Rosen and not Darnold? Based on what nfl gmís thought, as proven by their actions, Rosen was the 4th best QB in last yearís draft.
Maybe the GM's were more worried about Rosen's durability

He is about as mobile as Darnold who for some reason people think makes plays with his legs which he doesn't. Darnold ran a 4.85.

55% passing, 11-14 TD to INT in 14 games.

That's bad even if you have a bad OL. And the skill position talent he had being subpar is overblown. One of the best RBs in DJ, Christian Kirk will soon be recognized as a budding star. Chad Williams is a good young receiver, Larry Fitzgerald though old is as sure-handed as they come and an elite route runner still, and Ricky Seals-Jones and Jermaine Gresham were not dog poo at TE.

There's a decent enough chance it was all due to the rookie learning curve, fine. But he didn't play any better late in he season. Baker Mayfield got better as the season went on. Sam Darnold got better and more consistent as the season went on. Josh Allen got better as the season went on. Josh Rosen was consistently bad all year. Want to talk about the sacks, fine. But some of those are not recognizing the blitz, and some are holding the ball too long.

He may get better. He may adjust better to NFL speed and make better decisions with the football, but from what I've seen from him, I don't expect Josh Rosen to settle anyone's QB situation.

Did you actually watch them play at all? They had the worst OL in the entire league and it wasn't even close. He was pressured on over 40% of his dropbacks. That's a nightmare for a rookie QB. David Johnson was pretty terrible all year long but you just called him one of the best RB's. Notice the inconsistency there? Kirk missed the last 4 games and was also a rookie, Fitzgerald looked like a corpse out there 90% of the time. Chad Williams didn't even play weeks 9-15.

Strahan is correct, the Cardinals were pitiful. David Johnson did close to nothing because the OL was so bad. At least Rosen beat out the starter Bradford, managed to put some points on the board, and take a beating but kept right on. The HC was fired this team was so bad. To paint some kind of picture that Rosen ever had a shot is wrong. In the end his stats weren't much different than Darnold, who had a much much better situation with the Jets.

You can't screw up by waiting, you can only screw up by getting the wrong guy.

A 2nd rounder on Grier is better than the first two options. Best thing to me is to trade back, get an extra 2020 first, so that it's easier to trade up to get your man next year if need be. Having two first rounders next year also means two chances to naturally be in position to get the right guy.

The only QB I could see the Giants using #6 or #17 (he probably won't last that long), is Drew Lock.


Sorry, but you are clueless when it comes to Rosen. You have a real blind spot there.

Murray might end up being a great player, but trading massive draft capital to move up for a 5-10 QB is a mistake.

Trading for a bum like Rosen is an even worse mistake.

You can't screw up by waiting, you can only screw up by getting the wrong guy.

A 2nd rounder on Grier is better than the first two options. Best thing to me is to trade back, get an extra 2020 first, so that it's easier to trade up to get your man next year if need be. Having two first rounders next year also means two chances to naturally be in position to get the right guy.

The only QB I could see the Giants using #6 or #17 (he probably won't last that long), is Drew Lock.



Sorry, but you are clueless when it comes to Rosen. You have a real blind spot there.


I'm clueless when it comes to Rosen? Nah, I think I have a clue. I watched a LOT of his UCLA snaps. He wasn't a winner there, he did not put up exceptional statistics, and the one game everybody lauded (the comeback vs Texas A&M), would've ended on an INT if the Aggie safety would've secured the ill-advised heave that went right through his hands and resulted in a TD. He also got away with another bad, bailout throw in that game that also resulted in a TD. Two touchdowns late that were absolutely terrible throws that he was tremendously lucky to get away with.

He did not win many games.
He is not an accurate thrower of the football on off-schedule throws.
His mobility, escapability, while not the worst, is not good enough.
He makes panic throws, he loses composure under pressure and often tries to do too much.
He doesn't feel pressure well, this was evident in college and it was evident last year, and part of the reason he was sacked so much.
He never put up elite stats in college, but his very predictable terrible rookie season is excused because of the bad team around him. DJ was not part of the problem. He would've been a lot better with competent QB play that punished overloaded boxes. Defenses just didn't respect Rosen nor should they have.

If Rosen ever becomes a top 10 QB I will be shocked. It's easy to fall in love with his arm talent and accuracy when he has a good pocket and is not under duress. He throws a pretty ball and is accurate when the protection is there. He has good mechanics. But you have to win and make plays under pressure in the NFL. You have to recognize the blitz and make quick decisions and deliver under pressure. You have to feel that pressure and have an in-tune internal clock. Rosen struggles in all these areas.

Yes, protection for him was bad. But there is a lot of tape from last year in which he was legitimately terrible, even when protection was there. That Atlanta game was week 15 of the season and he sucked out loud in that game and got yanked by his coach.

There is a chance Rosen will prove me wrong and he will make great strides and show massive improvement (because he will need massive improvement). But he did not have a good rookie year. He did not improve over the course of the year. And you can't just dismiss his contribution to his own performance and just say it was only because of the play of his teammates. You have to show some improvement, and you have to make plays in the NFL when protection isn't ideal. Darnold didn't have good pass pro last year and he improved from early in the year to late in the year.

If I knew any of you outside of here I'd make a bet with you that he won't be a starter by 2021, unless it's because of injury.
