Guest Gritz Posted March 5, 2008 Share Posted March 5, 2008 Ran-dawg (3/5/2008)birdweiserrr (3/5/2008)Everyone knows we need a franchise QB. Everyone knows we will draft a QB this year. We will be drafting for a franchise QB, not a QB to be a full time backup or a 3 year project. If TD believes there is a franchise QB in this draft (maybe even more than one), he should take him in the 1st round. There will be no GM out there that needs a QB that expects a franchise QB to be available in the 2nd. TD will not be thinking, "well I believe so and so is a franchise QB and he should be there in the 2nd". Franchise QB's go in the 1st.Of course there are times when a QB is taken after the 1st as a project or a full time back-up and turns out to be a star. However, when this happens it's because GM's didn't think he was a franchise type of guy. He beat the odds.We need a franchise QB and I believe TD will take one in the 1st round.I hear what your saying and totally agree but there is not a for sure guy that demands a 3rd overall pick. Normally there is a clear cut guy but the popular choice for the clear cut guy has 19 ints. That does not cut it. Do you think his int totals will go down because he comes to a faster more complicated league. No, they will most certainly go up. Same thing with all this hype about DMac. He had 23 fumbles in his 3 year carreer. That is crazy. What happens when he gets hit by a NFL caliber player. Bad things man, bad things.You're dead on the mark here man. Despite what many of the "draft gurus" are saying Matt Ryan doesn't look like a "can't miss" NFL franchise quarterback to me (in the mold of a Peyton Manning or Carson Palmer...). There are guys we can take in the 2nd or 3rd round who have just as much upside as Ryan.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
