Who exactly is going to help this team win now at #1?
A rookie 3-4 DE? Nope.
A rookie #2 CB? Nope.
A LT who sits on the bench? Nope.
An OLB who will rotate in? Maybe...but not much.
There is no ****ing franchise changing player that is going to step in day 1 and get this team to a Superbowl. So why not look towards your franchise's future and draft a QB that can sit and learn for a year.
Drafting a QB #1 is not going to immediately create a controversy. If we do take Geno Smith #1.....I guarantee that Reid comes out day 1 and states that Alex Smith is his starter. That effectively puts ZERO pressure on Geno Smith.
Who gives a **** if Geno Smith sits for a year. People act like rookie QBs have been starting for the last 10 years.
