Sorry guys and gals, but I've asked a couple of questions, read a couple of articles, watched a few programmes and still just don't get it......
Now, that could be a good thing if we were talking about
STD's....errm, shopping i mean.... but i'm not. I'm talking about QB's and the draft.
Some of you peeps responded to an earlier question of mine and pointed out that an elite QB does not mean you will get to the SB, in fact there are many elite QB's without a ring. Yet there are also many instances of "average - good" QB's who do have rings.
I understand having an elite QB would be a very very very good thing....heck, given our current position, just having a QB would be a good thing.....and i know that we all desperately wished we had a young elite QB.
I also think that, from what I've read, none of the QB prospects that may be available when we draft are elite prospects.
There seems to be a lot of people who would be happy going for a 2nd or even 3rd round pick with the types of Dalton, Stanzi, Kaepernick et al.
History would seem to suggest that, even in the fullness of time, QB's drafted this low rarely become elite QB's. From what i can gather, it is also unlikely that we would want any of these guys to be our starting QB for the coming season.
So, if elite QB's are not available to us, and if elite QB's are not a necessary precursor to having a SB winning team....why would we bother drafting one this year at all? We already have a "developmental" project in Webb....I have no idea how far he is from a Stanzi, Dalton or Ponder, perhaps you could help me out there?
I understand that the more we have, the more chance we have of finding a winner....but given the number of holes we have in the squad and the lack of picks we have compared to some others in the draft... is going for another "developmental" QB in even the 2nd or 3rd round a bit of a reach when we could be getting quality starters or NFL ready back-ups for other positions?
