Your comeuppance posturing on your "factual opinions" are based only on your perception of those you blast negatively. Regardless of your opinion, your self serving pompous superior attitude justifies my opinion;  you're status in life is not near as awesome as you give your self credit for.

  • Must be doing something right because Harbaugh is keeping him around.  That guy doesn't put up with much.  Looking at the QBs who have come and went at Houston makes one think Obrien was most of the problem for Mallett and others.

    Yes - with the number of QB's he's been through and NONE have been successful, maybe O'Brien should look at how he's handling them or adjust his offense a little.

  • I don't recall apologizing?

    Mallett's stock has done nothing but, appropriately, drop for four years (traded for a six pack of warm Pabst and cut). He is, however, a reasonable facsimile of an inaccurate and immobile Joe Flacco light(tm) so resurfacing in Baltimore made some sense.

    This is, very likely, the absolute pinnacle of Mallett's NFL "career" which -- grand scheme -- does make him slightly superior to Dan McGwire. Certainly, however, not to the point I should be sorry for drawing the comparison.

    IT'S PRETTY ACCURATE.

    Still, good for Mallett. There's lots of guys who'd love to be a clipboard caddy for the $$$ he's raking in. He'll never again be devoid of ScanTron.

    I notice you did not dispute my "You be a d%$k" statement. And you are.  ;)

    I never met a fan you railed on a player as much as you do. And Ryan is not the only player you have done this to. Grab your little crumb and scurry back under the baseboards.

    He's had a personal agenda against Mallett for years upon years. It's one thing to rag on coaches...but Hog players that have made a career in the NFL? Dumb and illogical.

    Ya he's not the next Joe Montana but holy hell...how many people can say they were active as a QB on a NFL roster for that many years? When is the last time an Arkansas qb completed that type of feat? I don't get the hate there.

  • Glad Ryan is still in the league and making money, but yes, I am disappointed he hasn't been able to do more with his immense talent than he has in the NFL.

    Watching him play for Arkansas, I thought he had the potential to be a great pro QB.   When he dropped in the draft and was taken by New England, I thought it was one of the best things that could happen for him.  Too many young QBs are thrown into the game too early and not allowed to develop.  He had the chance to develop behind one of the all time greats.

    Going to Houston I thought was a good situation for him.  Good, young team with a lot of weapons around him, and a good defense.  His first start at Houston he looked like he was about to turn into what a lot of us thought he would be, a top tier pro QB.

    Was really happy for him when he got another chance at Baltimore after the Houston situation unraveled.  Really hoped that Flacco was on the way out, or this was a floater for him until he could get on with another team.

    As many teams out there that need QBs, and he is signing another contract to sit behind Flacco, you have to think that there isn't much of a market for him as a starter anymore.

    Like I said, happy he is still making money, and he's done better than 99.9% of the people that aspire to play QB in the league, but a little sad over the fact that it appears his success in the league won't match his physical abilities.

    I feel strongly that the HC in Houston has Les Miles-type QB problems. Or maybe a Nutt-type ego

  • This will be Mallett's 7th season in the league.

    My how time flies.  Feels like yesterday he threw that pass to Cobi right before the half of the LSU game that sent us to the Sugar Bowl.

    Dang!  I would have never thought 7 years.  I had already asked in this thread how close was he to being in the league to getting his mandatory 5 years so he would be able to collect his pension.

    I mean, I get your point, but it's not a strong argument.

    Show me one -- just one -- of these guys have significant success elsewhere and there's something to hang your hat on.

    Very good post.  I very happy for Mallet too.  I wish he could have been  an NFL starting QB but I realize only one in a million has both the physical abilities and a super quick mind it takes to see the field and select an open receiver, if any, before the protection breaks down; plus have the quickness to use his feet to buy more time. Nevertheless, experience helps and perhaps in time that will give him the edge he requires to move up to first team.

  • #73 by lstewart on 13 Mar 2017
  • If you are on a roster as a second team NFL QB, there is always a chance you will get to play significant time due to injury. At least Mallett is getting paid to be on a roster, and there is always a chance he will get a shot due to injury. I think he is past the point of teams wanting to sign him as a starter, unless he gets significant playing time and has a lot of success. That could change everything.

    O'B was the problem when Ryan was there......I told everyone .....Ryan was football waterboarding by O'B.....plus Ryan has been blackball from his Hogs days.

    Ryan should have been  early first round in the draft.....would have been better off to not be in NE......did not have a change to play there.......after he had enough of O'B in Houston .....he was marked in the NFL boys club.

    How many million did Hoyer get in SF.....to say Hoyer is a better QB then Mallett is a joke..
  • #75 by Hankweb on 13 Mar 2017
  • 32 teams in the NFL. Mallet is a#2 QB in the NFL. I'd settle for a couple million a year to be one of the top 64 quarterbacks in the world.

    Glad you found the clip 1969,.... this is the one play I remember most in 60 yrs. What a shame that Ryan talent is been wasted....

    Watches today QB, most are terrible......the talking heads & O'B have blackball Mallett.....plus bad luck like the Pec injury.

    I may never see Hog Football again like the years Ryan was here.

  • Here is some more of his great insight to how Razorbacks will transition to the NFL.


    Spaeth career numbers.

    9 seasons.....55 catches.....10 TDs

    Henry career numbers

    1 season.....36 catches......8 TDs



    Oh enlightened one, please inform us no nothing rabble on which Hog will be the next mediocre one.

     Anytime anyone says anything positive about Arkansas Zeke drops smart allec shirt bombs by the dozen. All he wants to do is lure someone into an attack vs defend position and hedge his bet that your homerism will be defeated by the history of well wishes who have failed to be all pro's... In short hes a sock tucker... That, or a cork soaker. I'm not sure which.

    I just find the universal lauding of Ryan Mallett to be fan base embarrassing. Heck, there's an argument to be made he wasn't even the best QB on our roster when he was in Fayetteville, let alone on any of the professional teams he's been with.

    Is me making $$$? Sure. So is Tom Savage who -- interestingly enough -- the Texans decided was good enough to keep even after being on IR for the entire 2015 season. Think about that: Houston decided to keep a guy WHO DIDN'T EVEN PLAY over the Scantron King.

    Not respecting Mallett isn't my agenda, it's the NFL's.

    Reality.

    So, sure, obtaining any contract is a positive for Ryan.

    Mallett has continually been on a roster for coming on 7 years now. Tyler Wilson was beat out by an undrafted free agent and was on the practice squad before being cut. So, it is highly unlikely Mallett was not the best qb on the roster when he was here.

    As for respect or lack thereof, in the last 50 years, only Joe Ferguson was drafted higher than Mallett and even then, only barely. He's also had the 2nd longest career by a long shot as well. Average career length of a qb in the NFL is 4.44 years so Mallett is well established as an above average NFL quarterback. So again, don't see any disrespect there either. Average NFL career for a player who is one the opening game day roster is 6 years so again, Mallett is above average.

    Of the players drafted ahead of him, Jake Locker has retired, Ponder and Kaepernick are free agents that haven't been a contract anywhere yet. Enderle, taken after him is gone. QB's taken after him, including those in recent years have already washed out as well.

    Zeke is infamous for lambasting anyone and everyone pretty much that was ever connected in any way to Bobby Petrino. Including Mallett who played for him as his star QB. I'm very proud for Ryan. Wish he could get a starting role somewhere.

    Using Tom Savage as an example would be like using Kellen Moore is better than Tony Romo as an example.  NFL teams don't always keep the best player for reasons other than performance.  Mallett and the coach got in too it and had a disagreement.  The coach leaked things to the public to make himself look better.  It's now not a coincident that he has been shuffling through QB's and apparently having issues with every one of them.  At some point, no matter how good or not those QB's were you have to look at yourself.

    Don't expect Zeke to respond to you. He only posts when he sees an opportunity to do a drive-by shooting of a former Hog. He doesn't like to discuss his views because his logic is flawed - as your post clearly shows.

    I find him funny as he is clearly threatened by Ryan. Not sure why, yet seven years on he still cannot pass up a chance to get ridiculous.

    +1 for your post.
