Four years later and we're still waiting for that to happen.
My take on this is a little different than most here.
I'm ALL FOR taking a QB in the first round. However, doing so doesn't come without the most major of risks. If you take a guy and he's a Jamarcus Russell or a David Carr or a Mark Sanchez, you can set your team back years and years. Then you draft another guy........and it possibly happens again. What I'm saying is, we could have been drafting first round QB's all this time, and be in the exact same boat.
On the flip side, it's ****ing hard to get my head around the fact that we haven't drafted a first round QB in 29 ****ing years.
That's like getting the clap when you lose your virginity then swearing off pussy forever. It makes no sense.
