if you don't learn from past mistakes your only doomed to repeat them...
taking a look at what might have been is not only interesting but forces us to ask the hard questions like..
why did we evaluate Smith over Rodgers in the first place? (not every team did)
why did we make no effort to aquire another serious QB when Smith had a serious injury?
why did we confidently pass on mcnabb thinking Alex was going to perform well and win games this year when clearly we were dead wrong?
sure hindsight is 20/20 but part of winning and losing in the NFL is scouting and talent evaluation. better teams consistently make the right decisions in the draft, free agency, and in trades. we consistently make the wrong ones. this is at the core of why the product on Sundays is what it is.
I would add: WHAT IS THE POINT BRINGING IN DAVID "RUN FOR YOU LIFE" CARR???
