a great QB is key for a Superbowl run but to play respectable football youve got to be good in the trenches first. get right in the trenches and get above .500 and then worry about getting to the Superbowl.

There's no first, second, or third steps in building a great team. You need great players at every position and you need to acquire those great players whenever you have the opportunity. When you try and get fancy and do things in a certain order is when you screw up and miss out.

Right you do need great players everywhere. the problem is we will acquire a guy who isnt a sure thing at qb and then watch him bust out because he cant cover for all the other issues on this team and then in two years you and everyone else will be lamenting drafting yet another bust qb because we "absolutely had to"

Good QBs don't bust because of poor teammates.

...and how do you prove they couldn't have been good if they weren't surrounded by crap ??Who's to say , for example , David Carr couldn't have become a good QB if he went to a good team instead of an expansion team , before any shred of confidence was pummeled out of him ?

I don't have to prove all the bad QBs were secretly good QBs who got ruined by bad teammates. That's your position. Good luck. I'll take Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, and Peyton Manning and you can have David Carr, JaMarcus Russell, and Joey Harrington.

Please wait…
