Caught this on ESPN, and it seems Jon has a mancrush on Matt.
After watching Barkley throw for his show, and interview with him, too, Jon Gruden said Matt made all the difficult throws, and is surprisingingly accurate while throwing on the run in both directions.
"Barkley seems 100% and I expect him to absolutely light it up at his Pro Day...Matt is very smart, has a much stronger arm than I thought, and this is one tough kid."

That's great to hear.
Anyone know when it airs on espn? Gruden camp ft Barkley
They seem to air a lot of his retreads on ESPN-News--that's where I caught the Matt segment. His next show should be a good one.....Manti Te'o.
Join the fight for YOUR liberty!
Pittsburg, Denver, maybe thinking long term. Give him a year or two behind the starters. Roth and Peyton are long in the tooth and have been banged on a long time. These franchises want to win, expect to win. I'd like to see him go there.

7th pick money for Barkley though - so that's good.
Cry Havoc; and let slip the dogs of war!
NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm a Cardinal's fan, but I love my Trojans and Matt much much more!
Arizona is where players go to kill any career they had a chance of having..and no, I'm not just talking about Leinart..but everyone (except LF) that plays there. Also, the media market is zero there as well.

Wisenhunt is gone and the valley supports the team very well. When they are winning they get plenty of PR.
Many recent mock drafts do not have Barkley going in the 1st round, but I expect him to be there when draft day rolls around,
With the current rookie wage scale, picking a QB with the 20th pick in the 1st round means paying the QB mid-level, backup QB money. Worst case scenario, if a few teams grade Barkley as a solid backup/potential starter then he would be a bargain at the end of the 1st round. He will pick up momentum after his pro day.
Winning winners who win > whining whiners who whine.
Speaking of Arizona...
In response to the flurry of moves, the Arizona Cardinals have given John Skelton a 5-year $170 million extension.
Good tho, Matt is out of the picture for them, Thank You Lord!
Momma....it's gotta be a joke.
No one is giving Skelton a contract for 34K/year. Even Godly Joe Flacco isn't worth that.
We're talking about my sad sap Arizona Cardinals here...
Hey, you created me. I didn't create some loser alter-ego to make myself feel better. Take some responsibility!
My son just asked, " are they on crack or just black tar heroin.?"
"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
I have a hard time believing that anyone would believe it....
Do not want him
Becky -"Their physical appearance defined muscles, BD, I feel how they desire me and how much they enjoy every inch of me, I just love it"
It's the NFL, which means that $170 million means next to nothing. The number that matters is the guaranteed money, which I am guessing (without looking) is less than $50 Million.
Heh, yeah turns out that was a joke (at least I can't find any trace of a deal elsewhere)
I got over excited about the prospect of Matt being spared.
i can't tell if any of you guys thought that was actually plausible. most ridiculous thing i've heard in a while.
i meant the full episode. they will probably air in april closer to the draft. each kid gets his own 30 mins of air time with gruden and it'll likely air on espn2.
