Yes. We need one now and should take one at the top of the Draft.
No. Too many other needs and I don't see a QB I like with a Top 13 pick.
No I do not want to trade Mevis for Sandouche the second
Abe for Mangold worked for me, Thank you
Good GOD they better not pick a half-assed Sanchez Clone in this draft...
I don't like any QBs of this class in first rd. Just as long as the Dropped Chalupa is splayed on the bench.
Their really is not that much difference among the 2d-3rd round rated QBs and thew 4th - 5th, this year. It would be prudent to wait, considering the real target for QB will be at the top of the 2014 draft. Pick one now for value and next season get the franchise QB.
Btw, I went back to this because most who replied didn't want a a QB with the second either.
We didn't want to pick Smith with 9 or 13 and we didn't want Idzik to reach for any of the bums (Glennon, Manuel, Nassib et al) in the second.
Smith at 39 was a great value pick and when he starts and succeeds in 2013 a pick that will be ranked up there with Idzik's third round QB pick for Seattle in 2012
I was always on the ropes about taking one in the top 16. I would have been OK with it but thought we would either trade down and take one or take the best available QB in the 2nd. Just glad we didnt end up with Manuel. Anyone who was following the JETS draft knew we where taking a QB in the 2 or 3rd round. Anyone who thought other wise was just kidding themselves IMO. Biggest need on the team and it was a 2-3 round deep QB class. If we had traded a 2nd for Alex Smith or Foles the same people saying they didnt want to draft a QB would be like wow we got our QB. Geno was a good pick in that perspective. Much higher up side then those guys.
Geno is still a second round pick ... Most second round picks become backups.
Russell Wilson -third round
Joe Montana - third round
Tom Brady - sixth round
Kurt Warner - undrafted
NostraDunnie predicts, though, that if you aren't drafted in the first round, you're destined to be a backup
My point being that all the neophytes on this board hailing G Smith as the second coming of Joe Montana need to calm down a bit .... 32 teams passed on him in the first round ... Some teams twice (jets cough) ... To think that he is going to be Russell Wilson or Drew Brees is plain silly.
My guess is that when he takes over , he will have a modicum of success because there will be an air of newness until defenses game plan for him.
Then the mediocrity will set in.
