Nothing is going to change my mind that it is best to pick a QB from the draft than going after retreads like the Chiefs continue to do years after years.
I'm all ready disappointed we traded two 2s for Aids Smith. They took the hope away before the draft.
I'm tired of it too. Again, I was in the Geno camp and don't like the Alex Smith trade. I also don't think that a GM/Coach should be required to take a QB even if you don't believe in him or you don't think he fits your system. Especially in probably the worst QB class in recent memory.
If the Jets passed on Geno, who knows how low he would have fallen. There's too much smoke on this not to be true. In the end, we took a guy in Tyler Bray who has a lot more talent, but seems to have the same mental issues as Geno (obviously, a lot moreso than Geno).
