speaking of completely stupid.
let's take a once in a lifetime, 6th round draft pick hall of fame QB, and say that the analysts and experts get things wrong.
forget the hundreds of backup QB's that the analysts and experts got right. that never became anything.
they missed on one guy. so clearly the odds are in our favor that we have guy number two.
You two obviously didn't even bother to read my post. I clearly stated that I wasn't comparing McElroy to Brady. What I was doing was saying that taking pre-draft and analyst talk as the Bible truth is stupid. You actually have to take a look at guys on the field once in a while, you know?
And as far as missing guys goes? What about Montana being drafted at the end of the 3rd round? What about Arian Foster going UNDRAFTED? Yea, guys fall through the cracks. It's not as though Brady was the only one to ever sleep buy these guys.
Again, I'm not even saying every 6th rounder or undrafted player is going to become great. What I'm saying is that, in this case, we have a bust of a 1st rounder at QB and we're not even going to honestly see if our other option can do anything more for us (we've already seen he can be more than efficient last Sunday) and the logic that's being presented back to me is that "well, pre-draft experts said this and that". Really?
