We have this weird "have to have a rolex!" attitude for linemen, but "timex is ohhh-kay!" at QB.

It's like people think we get some kind of bonus points for finding a QB in the 3rd round, or the 5th round, or the 6th round. Regardless of the fact that not a single one of them has ever turned into anything for us.

It's too much of a risk to draft one in the first round! But it's not too much of a risk to gamble the future of the franchise on Brodie Croyle or Ricky Cassel or Tyler Pigpen or any of the rest of that long line of broke-dick nobody's that the fanbase has fallen in love with.

To me, it comes down to this: there's no guarantee that a QB picked at #1 will be a franchise player. The only guarantee is that you won't ever draft a franchise QB if you don't actually, you know, ever try to draft one.
