Ok, IMO here's the thing, do you think Clausen can be our Franchise QB?, right now I will say no, but with that said he could also turn out to be that QB. here's the thing, if we get a Franchise QB we are good for the next 10+ years. having a good QB can go a long way and is the most important player on the field whether you believe that or not, he makes the offenses world go round, look at both Mannings, Tom Brady, Big Ben, ect. those teams are contenders year in and year out in large part because of the QB.
that's why if you think you have a shot at a Franchise QB you take it, but with that said do you think Luck is the guy that can do it or is he just Alex Smith V2.0 where he's more thought of being the best QB in the draft instead of actually being worth the 1st pick? because honestly I don't watch a lot of College Football(in large part due to my Job, and the fact that I'm in Australia at the moment) but I never even heard of Luck till this season, so is he the real deal or just the best of what there is? now if you think he's the real deal, we take luck and trade Clausen for whatever we can get, some times there is a point were you cut your losses and go straight for what you need.
Now if you don't think that Luck is the Franchise player we are looking for then I think it's gotta be A.J Green we need a WR bad, Smith isn't getting any younger and honestly he's getting close to the age where he will nolonger be a true 1st option, so right now AJ Green is the player I want, not because I don't think we need a QB, just because I don't think Luck is the Answer.
now with all of that said, this is basically because I knew who AJ Green was last year and I didn't know who Luck was till this season. and I don't like chasing players with high picks that I didn't even know existed till a month and a half ago.
