Going just off memory, I really think I'd take a healthy Chris Chandler over George or Cunningham. That guy is one of the underrated QBs of the decade.
Ron Meyer should have given him more of a look in 1990 instead of trading Rison and G Chris Hinton with draft picks to Atlanta for the right to take George. The Colts drafted him in Round 3 in 1988, and gave up on him too soon.
On the NFL Top 10 draft trade show, Meyer said that you have to have a QB, but he didn't seem to realize that you need a team just as much, if not more. He should have traded away Eric Dickerson for a draft choice or two(ED was in another contract dispute), drafted Rodney Hampton or Emmitt Smith, and developed Chris Chandler.
