Personally I still believe Moore or Clausen can still be the guy. Both of them have had poo to work with on the offensive line. Moore had the pressure of Clausen and the fans. Now Clausen has the pressure of fighting off a #1 QB selection. We haven't seen the best of these guys imo.
If Luck is there and hes as good as advertised then I guess you take him. But if we do that then I think we would have to trade a player to get back into the early rounds to fill positions of need. If we stick with the poo we have at DT we will get run over all season again. Maybe tag and trade Deangelo or Conner. I just feel that picking Luck will hurt us at other positions.
With a top 5 pick we have a prime opportunity to trade down and beef up our team. Pick up a talented #2 CB, a future tackle, a DT, hell maybe AJ Green.
QB is a position of need. it's our greatest one and we don't have have it resolved. it is THE most important position there is. it is the thing we have been lacking for many years and, considering who we are going to be facing for many more years, is something that we have to have settled.
i really can't believe the hesitancy of people to draft the best QB coming out of the draft this year who happens to be the best QB that many experts have seen in years.
we have become so used to mediocre at best QB play that the bar is set incredibly low. we look at moore and clausen and say..."ehhh....they could be pretty good. we should stick with them and hope that they don't suck. who here has confidence that either of these guys will be elite QBs? if you do think that, then how in the world did you come to that conclusion? what have you seen this year that wold lead you to believe that. the only thing that clausen and moore defenders can say is, "well, with this team anyone would suck." great selling point.
for those of you that don't think this team needs a stud QB....what NFL are you watching? have you seriously seen the teams that we are playing? have you seen what is happening to make this more of a passing league? do you want to sit back and hope that an above average rushing game (which many of you think we need to let go of williams or stewart) and a dominant defense can win a ring...or maybe you are just hoping for more of the same that we had under fox.
for those of you who will ask, "what makes you think that luck is going to be a stud QB?" well... are you going to avoid drafting him because there is a chance of failure? you're going to have that with any position you draft that early in the first. every position can bust. so luck has a chance of busting...so what? isn't it worth it to see if we can for once have a QB that we can be proud of and confident in his ability to carry the team to wins rather than one that you hope isn't going to suck this week or that your defense is going to be able to keep in the game?
meh...too many people accepting mediocrity and afraid of taking a chance on someone that could be one of the best QBs to play the game.
