Please...when he says he's the best quarterback in the draft...what does that mean to you...and my argument was, he isn't...sooooo.....
Edit: Mike knows what I meant and I know what he meant...so you don't need to interpret...I got it.

"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
Sooooooo, lemme get this straight.
If Nassib is the QB, Kiffin's plan to over utilize Marqise succeeds, the rush game finds holes that didn't exist, the defense plays lights out, and the special teams returns to the level of play we saw in 2011?
Your comment is a smack in the face not only at Matt by placing all of the blame on him for last year's results, but it shows your ignorance as to what REALLY ailed this program.
Both good qb's. Let's hope MB doesn't go to Buffalo....it is a place where few individuals or teams are successful. Tough Division.
If the Buffalo coach takes MB over Nassib, it makes all this arguing pointless. MB7 clearly has the most upside in the draft.

Ron Jaworski aka I'manidiot has Matt Barkley as the 6th best qb in this draft. Lord have mercy on this idiot...

sis....I love Chuckie and agree with him on most things...I don't agree with him on this one.
where have you been, I've missed you around here...glad you're back!
I think Barkley was a good quarterback, but I don't think he was a tough quarterback. Whenever he got hit, he would shrink up for the rest of the game (a la Vontaze Burfict in 2011) and lock-on to receivers, make throws without going through his checkdowns.
When the offensive line performs well, Barkley performs well. When the offensive line performs poorly, so does Barkley. The pass protection was extremely shaky in 2012 and that is exactly why Nassib would have been a much been starter under those conditions. What I will say is that if Matt Kalil stayed, Barkley probably would have had a great senior season.
You should save the hostility for rival fans, I see us as being on the same team after all
That's definitely debatable. Barkley might actually be closer to his ceiling than any other QB in the draft considering the talent that has surrounded him through his career along with his grooming since grade school.
And playing all four years at USC and I believe four years at Mater Dei as well? So, more big time game experience than many.
No hostility intended at all.
Somewhat taken aback by the notion you presented that last years team loses 6 less games with a ham and egg QB leading the way.
Not seeing how Nassib leads last years team to score 63 pts against Oregon, for starters.
Also, the notion that better talent surrounding him would automatically result in increased performance and results is simply a guess.

Three sources I trust very much are saying the #Bills prefer Matt Barkley over Ryan Nassib.
Thanks for sharing ...
I do too....
They may not draft a quarterback in the first round and wait to get a quarterback in the second round. They can trade their second round pick to get a late pick in the first round.

Please explain how Matt Barkley would've gone top 5 last yr, lost his LT and center, team had bad yr, now he's 2ND ROUND? Absurd. Steal.

Per @RapSheet, Matt Barkley would be the Bills' target in the 2nd round. Bills believe JAX is taking Nassib if he's there at 33.

Another national reporter, this time @AlbertBreer saying the Bills are big on Barkley. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000162940/article/bills-reportedly-eyeing-matt-barkley-not-ryan-nassib …
