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.
IMO, that's not really true anymore with the new rookie salary structure. Look at the Jaguars and Blaine Gabbert. They whiffed on him, but unless there's some enormous turn-around, they're going to be in a position to draft a new guy this year. Whether or not they actually do is up to them, but they're certainly capable of it.
