Gruden/ESPN QB Special

I'm sure a lot of us have watched the Gruden QB Confidential (or whatever its called) and I was just curious what everyone took from it? It was definitely a unique opportunity with these QBs that we have not really had a chance to see before.

I'm also really interested to see the Parcells special Tuesday at 9:30 PM (No, I'm not getting paid by ESPN).

Here are my takes on the QBs (I admittedly have certain bias):

Cam Newton: To put it bluntly he just came off dumb and not very teachable. There was the whole thing with the advanced play call, which I was OK with. But when Gruden showed the play of Newton trying to stick it past the goal line when Auburn was in victory formation, that is when I lost a lot of respect for Cam. His excuses were nauseating and I could just see him trying to explain it the way he did to Gruden to a big time head coach when the game is going on, you can't do that. He should of just said "I made a mistake and will learn from it".

Ryan Mallett: Mallett sounded dumb, but he had pretty good content. When he was talking about plays he sounded like he really knows football and is a gamer. My only concern is...what if he's been drawing up that one play over and over? My other concern is how incredibly skinny he is, he seriously looks like me when I was in middle school, concave chest and all. I'm still not sold on Mallett but my gauge did move a little slightly for the better after watching this. (Then the Carolina news came out)

Jake Locker: Seemed pretty quiet, about what I expected out of Locker. He's a monster size-wise and it was good to see his knowledge for the game.

Andy Dalton: Definitely a smart kid, still not my first choice but I wouldn't be too upset if we took him as a "later resort".

What did everyone else think after watching this?
