Jacoby Brissett, Nick Foles, Trent Edwards, Matt Schaub, Chris Simms, Josh McCown, Rich Gannon.. There's also Jimmy G and Drew Brees who were second rounders, but still, not firsts. Trent Green was an 8th round pick. Matt Hasselbeck 6th round. Mark Brunell 5th round. Brad Johnson 9th round. Marc Bulger and David Garrard were 4th and 6th round picks respectively. Jake Plummer was a 2nd rounder. Andy Dalton had a decent little stretch. Derek Carr was a 2nd. Brett Favre was a 2nd. These are all guys I've seen since I started watching in 06. It's happened plenty of times. You just named a whole bunch of guys who were not 1st round QBs, that’s all you did. You didn’t name guys who won super bowls, or even consistently had teams in contention for super bowls. You named Foles, who won a ring as a back up QB that got hot for a run and it was magical but he’s failed at being a starting level QB for years. Brad Johnson got a ring for being a game manager who was being carried by one of the greatest defenses of all time. And then you mentioned brett Farve and Brees, two of the greatest of all time, so I’ll give you those but most of the guys you’ve listed are not who you can turn a franchise around with, they are who can win a few games if they have an elite roster around them, which we clearly don’t have. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
