Re: Weeden, QBs and the draft

Re: Weeden, QBs and the draft 

I'm working on the Flynn/Wilson model. Excess is a beautiful thing when it comes to QBs, because until he got one you don't have a team.

My POV has evolved. The one constant of TBNG is no QB, therefore I don't give a flying f""k about any other postiion until we have one. The few fleeting moments this franchise has been decent since 99 has always been driven by decent QB play. Holcolm and DA's brief shining moments lifted teams that seemed to sit on the border of bad and mediocre into something more dangerous. And when they couldn't achieve any consistency, the team slouched back into being the spineless lump we've come to know and loathe.

And if that means bringing in 2 or 3 QBs and letting them duke it out in TC, well rah. And if any of them can't handle it, they can get on their horse and ride away. Nobody that's going to QB this club will have the resume to get pissy about a challenge.

Yep Weeds needs time. But if Alex Smith ends up here, here's going to have to up his game to be the starter. If he can't, c'est la vie Pierre. Work with the second team and hope you get another chance. If Matt Flynn comes here, let him and Weeden duel. It's not like teams dont' waste tons of pre-season time that could be better put to use. Hell, Sherm barely let Weeden play this X, and he was severely inexperienced.

Nope, not buying the Weeden gets gifted and let's spend another year seeing what he's got. Love his arm, his brain is the issue. And chances are we're not getting A Smith or Matt Flynn. But we can draft someone in the 1st round and I wouldn't mind one bit. I don't know college ball, but I do know that people miss on QBs all the time. Kaepernick in the 2nd, how the holyfrack did that happen? Dalton in the 2nd, Wilson in the 3rd, Brady in the 6th. If finding a QB is a crap shoot, holding the dice and not rolling will never cash you in.

QB, have one or have no team at all.
