As for not putting the QB out there with no OL...I agree 100%, they will be doomed for failure. But drafting a OT in the first round? No way. We have Albert on the left who did great and you don't draft RT,C or RG in the top 3. We can build our OL before Sanchez or Stafford even see the field. If we draft a QB, I highly doubt that Haley will throw them out there right away. They can sit a year and it will be helpful since they both will be better off learning for a year. Next season you let Tyler or a FA play and if they turn out to play good then we have a good problem on our hands. Our OL can be built through this year and next years' draft as well as FA. By the time Sanchez or Stafford see the field in 2010, he will be playing behind a good OL. And picking a QB in th later rounds...nope. This QB class is two deep. Stafford, Sanchez and maybe Freeman can be lumped in there, but that is all. It's VERY weak after that.
We can still fill the many needs of this team even if we take a QB in the first round this year. And if we take QB in the first, it's not like we aren't filling our needs. We need a QB.
And Jmalerson, I highly doubt we went to the spread and pistol because of our offensive line. It was because Tyler couldn't take a snap under center and was more comfortable in a spread style offense that he ran in college.
Stafford, maybe Stafford is worth a higher pick, maybe not.

I think the fact that two QBs had their seasons ended in the first three games of the season tells volumes about why we went to the spread. Those extra three steps saved Thigpen's *** more than once.
Also, I might point out that a lot of teams started implementing spread offenses this year. The Dolphins did it and they were very successful at it. I think you are going to see it more and more in the coming seasons.
