Dalton has proven he can play...Ponder I may be a little more critical over.
Personally, every Sunday I root for Fitz and hope he has a monster game and becomes the franchise QB Buffalo paid him to be...but he has let us down almost every time, and nothing he has done has suggested he will turn it around. Difference is the other guys are early 20s, and in their first few years...so I think we all could be patient and supportive, Fitz is an 8 year vet who makes rookie mistakes and has no arm.
And now with the new CBA salary structure, teams can pop on QBs in the Top 10 that they would have never taken a chance on. So the leftovers in the 2nd might go to a 30 to 1 shot.
Any particular reason you started your survey in 1992? Wouldn't be because Favre was drafted in the 2nd in 1991, would it?
I agree, though, with your main thesis, as bad as the odds are in the first, they're a lot worse later.
However, Schaub, Brees, Brady and maybe Romo are franchise QBs who came after the first. Favre and Kurt Warner too. Dalton looks like he's headed in that direction. Like you, I want us to grab one in the first. But if there simply isn't anyone there they believe in, that shouldn't stop us from grabbing someone a bit later.
only in Buffalo do people argue about the need for a real QB who can actually throw the ball down the field. I swear....
It's like Stockholm Syndrome on these boards
