And I'm saying there shouldn't even be any other possibilities at this point. Not if we're picking #1. Or if we're picking #2 and he's still on the board.
People are afraid of drafting a quarterback here. I didn't use to believe that but I've finally come to accept it as fact. When we're picking in the 20s, people say we're too low to do it. When we're picking in the single digits, people say there isn't one, or that we should trade out.
We ****ed up in 2009. And it doesn't have anything to do with Mark Sanchez. That guy should never have been a top-5 pick. But we stayed put instead of moving up for Stafford. We ****ed up in 2008. Matt Ryan was on the board at 3, and we didn't move up from 5.
Well, here we are folks. We're going to be in blue chip territory now, and there's a blue chip quarterback there. It's time to stop making excuses, it's time to stop looking for every possible reason not to do it, it's time to stop being afraid and just get the job done. And if it doesn't work, you try again. And you keep trying, until you get there.
We've done it with 5 techs. How about we do it with the most important position in sports.
