You guys talk about these QB's as if the rookie wage scale never happened.
These guys make f*cking peanuts compared to what they were getting just 3 years ago.
Sanchez got a $65 million contract as the 5th overall pick 5 years ago.
Cam Newton got a $22 million contract as the #1 overall pick 2 years ago.
You aren't f*cked for 4-5 years anymore if you take a QB in the Top 10 and he doesn't pan out. Hell, you can cut bait immediately if you deem it necessary.
Also, Joe Flacco was widely viewed as a 2nd round pick leading up to the '08 draft. You think the Ravens give a flying f*ck right about now that they traded up and "reached" for him?
