No way! What if we get little-to-no improvement from our QB position this coming year? I like Nate Davis but I'd rather not bank our future on him. We need a QB. That's THE missing piece at this point and there are some highly touted guys coming out next year that we should potentially trade up for. I want a top 5 QB, like Rivers, Brees, etc..
Why assume the worst? The first yr. in the same system, more reps. between starting QB and WR core, same offensive scheme all yr., new OL coach, young players have more maturity, coach Sing has all off season to study weaknesses and correct problems. What's worse, acquire all the talent you can this yr., which you'll always have or bet your first real shot at a division title in 7 yrs. isn't worth an all out push, starting with this draft?
Yeah, I'm pulling for Alex and HOPE he does better. Truth be told, I wasn't uber impressed with what he needed to be an outstanding ending to last year. I'd just feel more comfortable with at least one pick in each 1st round. Just look at what happened to Carolina. Traded away their future first, found out quickly that Delhomme was on his last legs and their only legitimate option now is Matt Moore.
Further, everyone seems to be on this, "we need to win NOW kick." It's not likely we win the SB next year. We're building a team (that's almost there) that we can sustain for the next decade. Getting one more guy in this draft isn't going to assure us anything.
