4. "RE: Anybody pick a qb over Tua gonna regret it" In response to In response to 2
I disagree. If he turns into a great player, cool. However, in sports you go with what is close to being a sure thing, and that is not Tua.
His talent is not the question mark. His health is. He is highly injury prone, and is a very brittle athlete, so there is a huge possibility that he will not be healthy enough to success in the Pros.
You are clearly taking a chance. For instance, I'm a huge poker guy. Let's say on the board is Ac,Jd,10s,9h, and in my hand I got 6h and 7c. And I'm going up against a guy who has Ah and 2c. It's basically an 80 to 90 percent chance that guy is going to win that pot. The only way that I can win is for there to be an 8 on the river, which would give me a straight over his Ace pair....do I gamble on that and go all in? or do I fold? It's simple. I fold. I will have many more hands to make money instead of putting it all on the line on a hand that I don't have, hoping for things to work in my favor.
That's Tua. The chances of him getting seriously injured is a lot higher than him going on to be a great QB. And even he does pan out, a team and coach will still have many more picks and drafts to get great talent.
It's not like Brady is the only one winning super bowls. brees, rodgers, both mannings, foles, Ben, have also won.....so there will be other great QB prospects without the health concerns.
I actually don't understand the hype and news around it. ...just to sell media.
