If you honestly think the read option is a legitimate way to win multiple Super Bowls, then I guess you have no problem with taking Joeckel 1st overall and taking a QB in R2 or R3?
Wha? I have no idea where you're getting this.
I want the best talent at QB. Period. I have no idea whether these particular guys have the ability to sustain the success we're seeing right now. Perhaps. At the very least they're flashing rather brightly.
But I'd still rather have Ryan over Wilson. All day. Every day. But I'm not willing to disregard the system that is allowing athletic QBs to have success.
What we're probably seeing is the formula for the next dynasty. When elite talent and intangibles at the QB position meet this type of system, we'll see a monster team.
