For a team to land the top QB they have to have a bad team
Only the worst team drafts #1
If a team is the worst in the league unless it's a weird situation like the Colts this year who have a fanbase, the teams likely not got too much going for itself
That bad team needs a spark and something to get some butts in the seats and what do they have to lose starting that guy?
It gets the fans interested so he gets to go
A guy like Campbell or Rogers weren't picked #1 overall
Those guys got to sit for a while and learn
They are different, fans are more patient on average to let them mature
But with top signal callers they generally get thrown to the wolves for reasons not necessarily because they are the best chance to win
in the end it really doesnt matter what we feel or think, if Mike feels that Luck is the one they want they will go after him.but i have alwaays said that our own history shows that a great line can carry a team to the superbowl better than a great qb with a so so oline.especially in this blitz happy league.i want a dominate center and left guard and i think that will settle this line down and improve our redzone woes. then we can get a qb that throws lazer beams and stuff.i am fed up with horse before the carriage.i would like some feed back on why the Skins passed on Johnathan Joeseph and G/ Davin Joeseph. both players are as good if not better than what we have.thanks people HTTR

Before the Cowboys won the Superbowls in the 1990's they spent 2 first round picks in the same year on QB's
I wouldn't mind us spending two picks on two different QB's but I would mind us spending all of our picks on one guy
Before Green Bay won it's championship in the 1990's they spent a 2nd round pick on the little known backup QB in Atlanta
I wouldn't mind us spending a pick on someone's backup QB either
There is no reason to believe we have only one choice to find our guy
If we did it would rank right up there with this trade in 1989
Minnesota Vikings received
RB Herschel Walker
Dallas's 3rd round pick - 1990 (54) (Mike Jones)
San Diego's 5th round pick - 1990 (116) (Reggie Thornton)
Dallas's 10th round pick - 1990 (249) (Pat Newman)
Dallas's 3rd round pick - 1991 (68) (Jake Reed)
Dallas Cowboys received
LB Jesse Solomon
LB David Howard
CB Issiac Holt
RB Darrin Nelson (traded to San Diego after he refused to report to Dallas)
DE Alex Stewart
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1990 (21) (traded this pick along with pick (81) for pick (17) from Pittsburgh to draft Emmitt Smith)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1990 (47) (Alexander Wright)
Minnesota's 6th round pick in 1990 (158) (traded to New Orleans, who drafted James Williams)
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1991 (conditional) - (12) (Alvin Harper)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1991 (conditional) - (38) (Dixon Edwards)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1992 (conditional) - (37) (Darren Woodson)
Minnesota's 3rd round pick in 1992 (conditional) - (71) (traded to New England, who drafted Kevin Turner)
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1993 (conditional) - (13) (traded to Philadelphia Eagles, and then to the Houston Oilers, who drafted Brad Hopkins)
That one worked out really well for Minnesota...
It may not be week one but like the Ravens wideout, it will happen eventually
But since you only know about Helu and Kerrigan lets not forget the second to last pick in the draft Chris Neild
Chris Neild in his first three games has 2 sacks and has been very good in his limited time
The point I'm making is that when you have a staff who can spot talent and manuver a draft like we just did
The idea that you go all in and draft one single player is like shooting ourselves in the foot
Why do I keep coming to the Stadium? Every time there's a bad game it's the end of the world, let's trade our next 20 years picks for this player or that player. Let's get rid of this player because he's a joke. The moment we win these same people are like, this guy that I just said was the worst player in the world, well now he's a GOD.
Rex is not going to win us a Super Bowl.
But he is good enough where we can build a team around the QB and progressively get better as a team, and he won't set us backwards.
I would be shocked if he took Jones over Barkley. I think Jones is the better prospect, atleast for now, but he just couldn't stop raving about how great Barkley was during that whole season. If Jones is far and away the better prospect, then he may take him, but I think Jones is gonna edge Barkley out just by a bit when the draft process is over.
