    I think the question in your post boils down to... would I rather have a fast starting QB that has an above average career or a slow starting QB that has a HOF career. My answer is a slow starting QB that has a HoF career even if he starts slow the first couple years.

    I'm not sure that there is any QB in this draft that wouldn't benefit from not being rushed into starting, nor is it a given that a QB drafted later is going to end up being better. I just don't get the point of asking a question in which every condition is an unsupported hypothetical. I suppose, I could say that having a great QB who will start for more than adecade, but needs a little time before he starts, is better than having a very good QB who can start from day one, but since we know nothing about how the careers of any of these young prospects will turn out, what's the point?

    Actually the comparison is more like : would you like me to pay you 500,000 now or wait two years and MAYBE Ill pay you 100,000,000 or maybe you ll have nothing.
    There is no guarantee that a developmental QB would actually develop into anything good... Of course , there is no guarantee that picking a guy touted as a 1st day starter will be good either..

    What the **** is the point of this thread?



    Everyone clearly wants the guy who will eventually have the more successful career. Unfortunately there isn't a clear sure thing this year like Andrew luck or Robert Griffin III

    good analogy...kinda, problem with it is waiting a year or two doesnt mean your project will pan out, it could fail.....so it would be more like 500,000 today or maybe a million in a year but maybe not.

    holy crap...someone with a brain.....yes, there is no guerentee either way but the question remains would you take a guerenteed good starting QB or would you take the risk an hope for a developmental hall of famer.....I personally take the risk and develop a guy....

    there isnt a point, nor is there a need for one....do you feel you need a day 1 starter or are you willing to wait based on potential? thats all, really has nothing to do with the draft, just a question that is inteneded to get away from the boring day to day crap on this board.

    I agree completley, I have had this argument with my brother several times and I think MC showed that to an extent when he played so well and then bombed. unfortunatly it also is an indication to what kind of coach Billy is, an ahole but a good coach

    I've always considered you quite atypical.

    Depends, which one would make the better MLB in 5 years? That's the guy I want.

    I want Barkley or Gino or no QB from this draft. The only exception is Manuel in the 3rd but he has to sit

    Obviously everyone would love the hall of famer but with buffalo's playoff drought, marrone will and should feel pressured to win right away and i don't see them taking a guy who will take 3 years to finally start playing at a starter level

Obvioulsy you can mix match names all you want, but the basic question is day 1 good starter or 3rd year hall of famer???? Because thats what you have in this draft, no one really looks like a day 1 stud but they all have what it takes to develop into a stud.
    If any of these lackluster QB's can come close to Tom Brady you take that guy without thinking twice about it, even if he does need to develop.

    But the reality of the situation is that none of these guys will probably come close to Tom Brady or any other elite QB.

    At best there is probably a Bledsoe like QB in this draft, perhaps Glennon or poor mans RGIII in Geno Smith.

    How did Nassib get compared to Brady? I know I have been drinking but how the He** did that happen? BPA and avoid all of this.
