why the fug am i watching 2 first round QB picks in the AFC championship game?

and, by extension...

why the fug has a team with a first round QB won the superbowl the past 3 years?

Just another aspect of the game Fox likes to look at with a closed mind and what player was most responsible for our meltdown in AZ?

you can't win the big one with a closed mind.

Warner is one in a million.

take QB production return pctg and compare it to the return production of any other position draft pick in the league and I bet you the bust rate will be at least the same.

Problem is you have to invest a first round draft pick and sign a multi year contract at ~14 mil a year to find out if yours is a bust or not.

Then if he isnt that good you end up with a 14 mil a year backup.

We would have to go 2-14 to get Bradford, I like The Golden Calf of Bristol as Hoovers replacement.

yea but when has a team ever made it, or a person ever made "it" in life in general, by not taking risks?

Lest we forget the last time Fox took a chance on an unproven QB it payed dividends for us. That's why he was so successful at first. Because he had the balls to take risks, and he was pretty damn good at it too. Now, please, god forbid we try anything different to get a one up on the other guy.
