with the extra 2nd we got from the Tony G deal. I know I know our line sucks, but we have a first and a second for that, our lesser 2nd from Atlanta should be used to pick up a good QB, that can be mentored into a solid start in case Matt Cassel doesn't work out. The only reason I suggest this, is the fact that none of you guys think Brodie can be a good starter, isn't that what a back up is for so in case your starter sucks or gets hurt they can step in, right?
dude oh my god no.
look, i understand the desire to backup the cassel investment, but honestly we need that 2nd rounder.
Assuming we have the #7 pick, then we need:
S, RT, RG, C, WR, OLB, ILB, NT
We need a lot more than this, but those are the positions that I think we need to address with the first three picks. That is to say, we must address three of them with the best available player.
To back up our QB when we need SO MANY other positions would be the only move we could make in the draft that is a complete failure at the outset. I guess if we draft another 3-4 DE. that would be an instant failure, too.
Drafting a QB would be terrible, especially in the 1st or 2nd rounds. QB is not even close to being one of our biggest needs.
I would much rather see a free agent then a draft pick. I dont think a rookie Qb would be to much better then what we see now.
First off all, if we had recivers that could catch...then maybe Cassel would look better, and it would make him feel more confident.
Second of all, Cassel looks horrid under pressure, give him more time in the pocket, and he might do better.
Finally, i ask you to read the article on the front page. Not saying it is 100% true, but it could happen.
