Good ran franchises know when to tank it ... Spurs did it for Duncan, Colts did it for Luck and so on. You need to know when to start over and rebuild. If you don't luck out and get a franchise guy like Pats did Brady or cut ya cap so you can sign a guy like Saints did Bries then its all about drafting a guy. If you don't start over properly like the Giants did when they got Eli, Packers did rebuilding with Rodgers, and Falcons with Ryan ... you end up like the Cowboys. We're slowly headed towards being what the Cowboys have been. We need to turn this thing upside down and stack up draft picks like crazy and start cutting ties with guys who aren't cutting it.
you do realize the amount of QB's that bust in the top 5-7 pick range are far greater than scooping up a franchise QB? Look at our own team.
Aaron Rodgers was drafted 24th overall. Order does not matter.
