My point was that I think I'm discovering I'm more in favor of a boom or bust type pick at QB like Smith or Wilson. Why? Because I feel like the Matt Barkley to Andy Dalton comparison is a strong one for multiple reasons. I think he could be solid for a lot of years to come but doubt if he could ever be great in order to win a SB.

Now the term boom or bust is exactly that and I'm okay with that. If we hit that boom then we have a legit chance to get to a SB. If that guy is a complete bust then we'll be right here in 3-4 years to take the next highest rated QB in that draft.
Fair enough. That's where I am as well.

I don't think it's fair to assign a number of QBs that can do it, but I do think it's fair to say that there's a certain caliber of QB you definitely want to have to do it.

Right now I think we have a fair number of QBs that are good enough or could be good enough to win a SB. I think it's possible that Dalton could develop a little more and be placed in a WCO, becoming a SB caliber quarterback. It would require he have a great team around him and an ideal system for him, but it could be done.

It's just the uphill climb. I'd far rather go after a force multiplier; a boom/bust QB that makes everybody around him better than they are. I don't think that's what you'll get out of Dalton - his teams are going to be a as strong as his supporting cast.
