    It definitely wasn’t. That’s why people were commenting on us finally getting plays like that....

    Actual quote “while the Rb or WR runs for 3/4 of the yards is a completely asinine way to attribute his contribution to the play.”

    KC leads the NFL in YAC so they must not stretch the field either. We should just take those yards away from Mahomes I guess Lololol

    You missed the sarcasm. And the video.

    GeronimoJackson Brainwashed by the Left. Now I am free.

    We might be the worst franchise of all time when it comes to drafting quarterbacks:

    2006: VY #3rd overall
    2011: Jake Locker #8th overall
    2015: Mariota #2nd overall

    You can even make the argument that McNair was above average for most of his career.

    Lots of horrible qb drafting franchises.

    Jets... Haven't had anyone of note since testeverde?

    Bengals... Dalton and palmer are the bright spots. Oy.

    Lions... Stafford is mediocre, but far and away the best they've had in forever.

    Miami post Marino is a poop show.

    Raiders... Ouch.

    Redskins... Oof.

    Cardinals have had Jake plummer and Warner. They didn't draft warner, don't remember about plummer.

    Tampa... Terrible.

    But the worst has to be the browns. Just a never ending string of hideous draft picks.

    I posted this in another thread but we are not the only team that does this. Most of the league goes through this. I’ll stick to the first 2 rounds despite ours all being firsts. I’ll also leave the last couple years out since they still are not prove. One way or the other.

    2016: Goff, Wentz, Lynch, hackenburg
    2015: Winston, Mariota
    2014: Bortles, manziel, bridgewater, Carr, garrapolo
    2013: Manuel, geno Smith
    2012: Luck, RG3, tannehill, weeden, osweiler
    2011: newton, locker, Gabbert, ponder, Dalton, kaepernick
    2010: Bradford, Tebow, clausen
    2009: Stafford, freeman, Sanchez, pat white
    2008: ryan, Flacco, brohm, henne
    2007: j Russell, brady Quinn, kolb, beck, Stanton
    2006: VY, leinart, Cutler. Clemens, t Jackson
    2005: Alex Smith, Rodgers, Campbell
    2004: Eli, rivers, Big Ben, losman
    2003: Palmer, leftwich, boller, grossman
    2002: Carr, Harrington, Ramsey
    2001: Vick, Brees, Quincy carter, tuiasosopo
    2000: Pennington

    64 QB taken first/second round since 2000. 15 lasted 5+ years on the team that drafted them (23%). Pennington, Vick, Brees (I’ll give him benefit despite less than 5 with SD), Palmer, Eli, Big Ben, rivers, Alex Smith, Rodgers, Ryan, Flacco, Stafford, Newton, Luck, tannehill.
    Goff looks like he may just be the next Alex smith/Bradford of the league. Clearly of those 15, not all were considered “franchise” QBs as they still traveled (Pennington, Vick, Alex Smith, tannehill)

    Point is, most teams swing an miss. There’s also a bunch of late round picks that worked out better (or at least as equal)
    2000: brady, bulger
    2004: Matt schaub
    2005: orton, Derek Anderson, Cassel, Fitzpatrick
    2010: colt mccoy
    2011: Tyrod Taylor
    2012: Russell Wilson, cousins, Foles
    2016: Brissett, Prescott

    Plummer was drafted by ARZ

    Add broncos -signed Plummer and manning but only draft is cutler
    Bears - grossman, trubisky
    Bills - losman
    Ravens got Flacco, Lamar Jackson remains to be seen long term
    Chiefs before Mahomes
    Texans before Watson
    Dallas before Prescott - Romo was undrafted
    Eagles after mcnabb
    Saints signed Brees as a FA, drafted poop
    Vikings best QB since culpepper was a Favre return
    Rams Bradford/Goff since bulger

    RTH Meh...

    Drafting THE QB is possibly the hardest thing to do in the NFL.

    Part of the reason I’d never agree with a team tanking. It guarantees nothing except maybe a shot on a low QB draft to reach for a QB.

    25% who you draft, 75% how you develop. Franchises that have proven to develop players get at least something out of their picks before they move on from them. When players have the same weaknesses they did in college then whats the point of having position coaches, or a development staff?

    Teams that try to change QBs always fail
    Teams that adapt to their QBs strengths succeed
