Peyton, Eli, Rivers, Cutler, McNabb, Sanchez, Flacco, Ryan, Palmer, Roesthlisberger, Stafford, Rogers and I'm throwing in Brees (1st pick in the 2nd round).
A.Smith, Quinn, V.Young, Russell, Carr, Campbell, Leinart, Collins, Leftwich
QB's starting who were not picked in the 1st round: The Good
Romo, Brady, Orton, Schaub, Cassell, Favre, Hasselbeck, Warner
Edwards, Henne (although he looked pretty good on MNF), Delhomme, Anderson, Gerrard, Hill, Bulger, Josh Johnson
We have an amazing opportunity in next years draft having two picks in the 1st round. Despite our recent 1st round blunder involving a QB, we should use one of those picks on a QB. Nate Davis is our project, but how realistic is it that he'll be one of those QB's in the Romo/Brady category? How much more realistic is it that he'll be in the Edwards/Gerrard category?
Shaun Hill is limited as a QB. We definitely need to pick a QB in the 1st round in 2010! Your thoughts?
Sorry but this is a terrible list. Jake Delhomme was a pretty damn good QB before the Cardinals game last year. Derek Anderson was a pro bowl QB but has a terrible team around him. Trent Edwards had a decent season a couple years ago but bad coaching and not a good o-line. David Gerrard was good the last two years but no o-line or receivers. Marc Bulger was a pro bowl QB. I can go on. Your argument is pretty bad. All QBs have a 50/50 shot in being a good pro or not. Nate Davis was projected to go in the 2nd round but his last two games in college weren't that great and teams were worried about a slight learning disability. Suddenly you want us to select a QB next year because Nate isn't a sure thing? How about you give him a shot before writing him off.
This is hilarious. Can you honestly tell me that you'd be comfortable with Derek Anderson as our QB? Or a "decent" Trent Edwards? Or a "good" David Gerrard? Or even Marc Bulger? I can go on... Don't be a fool. What do all of these guys have in common? Yes, they're good enough to start in the league...but they've also NEVER HAVE and NEVER WILL win a Super Bowl!
I'll feel a lot more comfortable with a 1st round LEGITIMATE talent as opposed to a late round project.
Are you really serious??? I'm not saying that I would want any of those QBs. Take another read. All I said that all those QBs has proven at some point that they were worth starting for their respective football teams. Do you not remember Marc Bulger taking over Kurt Warner and torching his opponents? Cus I sure as hell do. Do you remember people wanting us to trade for Derek Anderson? I'm not a fan but I'm sure if he actually had some receivers and an o-line, he would have more pro bowl years. Palmer, Cutler, McNabb, or Rivers never won super bowls. Does that mean that they suck too? You also say Cassel is a good QB. His stats were inflated in New Englands passing offense. Look what's happened to him now with the Chiefs.
Be real. Whether your a first round QB or a 5th rounder, they all have high bust potential if not trained correctly. The only difference is that if you draft them in the 1st round, then the teams have more invested in them.
