You're engaging in what I call "bait and switch thinking". Meaning that we went to the store, but the product we really wanted was gone. Now we have the choice to either wait until that product becomes available again, or just take the best thing in stock right now and just hope it's as good as the other would have been.
I don't think what's "in stock right now" is good enough, so I'd rather go to a different store. In this case, that'd be the Trade and Free Agency Store (which, unfortunately, is closed until at least April 6th and maybe longer).
Do strawmen rise up like zombies on this forum and possess people's accounts?
But Lets take your analogy a little further.
In this case, we're actually going to the drug store. We're going there because we've been poisoned by a venom called "2-14" that was delivered by a snake called "shitty QB play". This poison has made our franchise sick with "poor attendance", "an uninterested fan base" and "shame".
We need immediate aid in the form of an offense that can score points and win games. The best cure for that is to get anti-venom in the form of a "Franchise QB". The products on the shelf aren't what everyone recommended (Andrew Luck), but there are some really promising options on the shelf, and one in particular a lot of people say works (Newton).
If we wait, and don't get any anti-venom (QBs), we might get sicker (in terms of lower attendance and further shame, or even a worse record), or we might get a little better (8-8), but have lingering affects (like years of sub-playoff play).
