In the NFL his scenario is repeated over and over again in this dangerously unpredictable game. To increase your chance of success you should take the BPA. I trust that they will find a good QB somewhere. Look at Wilson in Seattle.
I seldom post here because the next post will tell me that I am stupid and a troll. Just watch.
Umm....we took LJ because Priest Holmes had gotten injured and his future was up in the air. And we passed on Troy Polamalu to take LJ as well. It was a stupid ****ing pick.
