Its the most dangerous thing a team can do that old reaching. Once you reach you are then forced to try and prove the reach right, therefore passing up on options that arent reaches just to try and prove the pick right. There are very few reaches that are ever made that work out. Especially more recently when scouting has become a corporate event and is beyond serious.
We have a nice prospect at QB and a career 3rd stringer. If we have the option to pick a blue chipper we should pick him. We currently have Rex Grossman, why settle for that when Peyton Manning is available. Thats what this is at the moment. I dont have a problem with giving TJ time and the chance, but I also dont think it should come at the expense of the opportunity of taking Brady.
The only positive is that if we pass on Brady and stick with TJ and assuming we cant get CJ, we dont address the O-Line problems and we dont get ourselves a legit franchise back, we will look the same as the Raiders did this year and have a really good chance of a top pick next year so that we can argue whether or not we should take Brohm or Henne because 2 years ago we invested so much in TJ and he showed flashes.
Brady Quinn is the opportunity to refresh the franchise and start heading in a new direction, natural born leaders dont come along that often and Brady is one.
All that said, it doesnt matter who is playing QB because we dont have a RB, LT, RG, RT, WR, WR or TE worth mentioning and our FB is coming off major surgery. We look pretty good defensively but on paper we may have the worst offense in the league.
