I don't want to hear about how we can't get our QB now.
Fact is, no matter where we end up in the draft, this FO should do WHATEVER IT TAKES to get a stud QB. If we end up at the #10 spot or even further, then we better MOVE UP.
This FO should not let ANY team get the QB that this FO has targeted and wants. Period.
WE SHOULD BE THE TEAM MOVING UP AND SNATCHING OUR QB FROM SOME OTHER TEAM. Not the other way around.
You know what you are probably right---Shanallen will do whatever it takes to move up to get one of the top 4 QBs--and with every meaningless win (other than making the players feel a little better about themselves) it will cost us that much more to make that move up---which means other potential playmakers we will not have an opportunity to get---if they are going this route to make me happy they better keep this up and finish strong by at least going 4-1 in the last five games --heck if we are going to screw up draft position let's really screw it up and finish strong--something to build upon for next season
I don't want to hear that we can't get a good QB if we slip in the draft standings. The Bengals got Andy Dalton in the 2nd round. Fitzpatrick of Buffalo wasn't even drafted I don't think. Brady 6th round pick. Romo went undrafted I believe. It can be done. I've seen plenty of first round picks become bust (Campbell, Ramsey, Shuler).
This team has too many holes to fill. Moving up to get a QB would not be the wisest move IMO.
No hole is bigger than QB. I'd rather have a great QB and be average to mediocre at three other positions than be great at said positions and still be stuck with Rex as our QB. Once you get the QB position down, everything else is easy. That's why the best teams in the league year in and year out are generally the ones with the best QBs.

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:54 GMT -5
Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.
Oct 14, 2018 15:11:50 GMT -5
rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
