View Full Version : Why the aversion to drafting a young QB?

We have a boatload of picks, two old QBs, no young QB in the pipeline....yet we still won't draft a QB in the middle rounds. You've got other teams taking young QBs as their 4th QB....what gives? It's the most important position on the field.

I think the 5th would have been perfect. We've still got the 6th and 7th though. I'd like to see us pick a guy we can send overseas and let him come along slowly...

The guy left that I'd like to see us pick is Derek Anderson from Oregon St. Inconsistent, but has a big arm.

Not really the best time for it, with a coaching change expected in '06.

DV's just keeping his options open.

We make a superbowl run or appearance this year and he'll come back. We suck the arse and he won't. Just like the last time his contract was up.

Not a huge need. They will take one in the next 4 picks.

DV's just keeping his options open. Even if he stays for '06, it's not the time for it. First, it's a luxury pick, and we need players who can contribute now, and second, you'd be starting a two-three year project when you're expecting an overhaul on the coaching staff at the end of that period. And, frankly, I don't like the idea of spending middle-round picks on QBs anyway. High picks or free agents is a more logical route, to me.

It is a huge need, really. Besides, drafting young QBs isn't about a "need" because they're probably not going to play that first year anyway. However, wouldn't it make sense to bring a guy in when your top 2 QBs are in their mid 30s?

Yeah, I'd hate to draft another Tom Brady.

Yeah, I'd hate to draft another Tom Brady. Oh, I'd love to draft a Tom Brady. What I don't want is a Tee Martin, Marc Bulger, Spergon Wynn, Todd Husak, JaJuan Seider, Tim Rattay, Jarious Jackson or Joe Hamilton.

I am have no problem with always getting a proven veteran. I have no problem with never having a QBOTF. Either way I just want a good QB if the Chiefs drafted him or not.

Just my opinion.

Yeah, I'm ready for a young QB. We haven't f*cked up one of those in awhile.

Bulger went to the Pro Bowl, didn't he?

Bulger went to the Pro Bowl, didn't he?He probably did. Either way, the point stands, Brady is a once-in-a-generation f*ckup by the entire league on draft day. The guy's headed to the hall of fame. Maybe I'm mistaken with this assumption, but I imagine if I looked at the last 50 QBs taken on day 2, I wouldn't find 10 who went on to be capable starters for the team that drafted them.

Hey, if I'm wrong, I'll be more than happy to reassess my position.




edit: said "Griese" instead of "Brady" for some reason. chalk it up to a michigan fan short on sleep.

Well, Trent Green IS our QB. ROFL

We need to draft someone that has the eventual expectation of taking over for Trent. I don't really know if that is still there in the draft. If we do draft a QB this year, I would get rid of Collins by 2006 or make him the 3rd string. A young QB is not going to advance if they are relegated to 3rd string and get no snaps in practice.

Why waste a late round pick on a QB when guys like Trent Green can be had for free every year?
