Andy Dalton is showing why you have to draft that true franchise QB in the first round. He is worse than Josh Freeman, Freeman would have hit AJ Green for the long TD.

There is no good place to get a real QB, it's a matter of keeping all your options open and when you see a guy you think could fit your team you go get them (be it by early draft, mid draft, RFA, FA or trade) and cross your fingers.

Yeah.  There's a lot of distortion in the whole thing too.  THe whole "you have to draft in the first" has become a self-fulfilling prophecy because it has become accepted wisdom that if you want a QB you use your first to get the "best" one you can.  The isn't anything close to an even distribution of QBs for other rounds who even get a true chance at starting, while a first rounder typically gets at least two or three (or five in our case apparently) to prove he isn't a bust or disappointment.
