That's where the "legitimately good QBs" are. It makes no sense for you to have these intensely high standards for drafted QBs and then not want to see the team one day be put in the position to go get one.
I'm not part of anything. My standards aren't that high, there are at least 3-5 QB's worth taking a flier on every draft. The "weak draft class" stuff is always weak. I've always argued that most of the time draft position is not even THAT important. It is... but even in the late first round there are usually guys who become quality players. The difference is teams like the Ravens and Packers draft quality starters, and the Chiefs draft guys who don't contribute.
