Let me throw this question out here to everyone. Rumor Mill is crazy on where the QBs in the draft will go, who has interest in who, etc. We've seen the evolution of the league into a passing league in recent years where if you don't have a QB you won't succeed no matter what. See what happened to the Raiders when they lost Carr, or Indy without Manning and when Luck is injured. Yet you see a team like us who loses Flacco and yet are competitive with someone like Ryan Mallet. I think a lot of our success without Flacco was in part because we had a TEAM in place that can compete regardless of who the QB is. When you look at someone like the Browns or the Colts without Manning, you see where not having a QB did hurt them. Though ultimately what did it say about the 52 other members of the Colts when Manning went down and they were a 2-14 team or 1-15 team.
Has the NFL created a monster in the fact that it forces teams to overdraft and overvalue quarterbacks in a way where they are forced to take bad quarterbacks just because the league says hey you need a QB to compete weekly. Look at how many wasted picks the Browns have made on QBs but yet they have one of the worst teams in the league every year regardless of who their QB is. They put so much stock into a QB that they forget the rest of the team. Then ultimately because of the need for a QB, and the over drafting of bad QBs, coaches and GM lose their jobs because said QB failed and busted. Thoughts?
