If first round QBs are "destined busts" as people like to refer them to...

Without McCoy we'll NEVER be able to develop a young QB!!!

For the record the only QB mentioned in this thread we had a shot at was Flacco.

top QB prospects historically on the board for the Panthers.

2005: Jason Campbell (80.4 career passer rating)

Aaron Rodgers (91.8 career passer rating)

2007:

Brady Quinn

2008:

Joe Flacco

We've definitely had some chances. But Fox wouldn't have contemplated it at all. Hell he wouldn't have drafted Flacco if he found him in the third round.

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.

Could have had Flacco instead of Stewart, I don't think most Panther fans would have thought that was a good call either however. :rolleyes:

I think Mark Sanchez is the best QB in the draft this year, with Stafford at #2. The problem is if we don't move up we won't get them obviously. I don't know if I'd waste a late 2nd on a QB that won't be guaranteed better than Jake.

I say we let Jake finish out his contract and see what happens from there.

Why would you want a QB with 1 year of college play?

I would rather take a braford or The Golden Calf of Bristol who have had more time to prepare.

2010 draft is going to be the oppertunity we have wanted to get our next QB

The Golden Calf of Bristol will be an excellent TE.

Ever so often he will be in the Wildcat.

He will break the NFL record for rushing TD's by a TE in a year. chuckle

Let's take a look at an fuller list of QB's we "missed" in the first or second round in Fox's tenure:

02 - Harrington and Ramsey passed over for Peppers

03 - Boller and Grossman passed over for Gross

04 - No real prospects here. Losman was the closest at 22. We got Gamble instead

05 - Rodgers and Campbell passed over for Davis.

06 - Clemens and T Jackson passed over for Williams

07 - Quinn and Kolb passed up for Beason (and Kalil)

08 - Flacco and Brohm (2nd) passed up for Stewart and Otah

Of these 13 QB's only 3 started fulltime this year.

So Fox and Hurney gets 9 key starters instead of taking a 76% chance we get a guy who doesn't even start.

Man what a bunch of idiots.

Sanchez scares the crap outa me too, talent hell yes, experiance hell no. if we expect him to come in here and take us to the playoffs year 1, or heck start year 1, i am not to hopefull. the bust rate on throwing a qb to the fire with little experiance is not too good. freeman and stafford have 3 years experiance each, and would be alot more hopeful that they could cope like flacco or ryan.

personally i am thinking its getting very close to matt moore's time, or its time to look somewhere else quick. we need a definate qb by 2010 alteast. if its not moore, we need to get a guy on the roster quick to learn for a year and take over (mccown?).

Nice list, but we could have had Otah and Flacco, same as Stew and Flacco, just sayin'.

True, but it doesn't change the percentages all that much.

FWIW I feel pretty confident that we would have gotten Ryan if he would have fallen far enough.
