Sorry for my dissapearing act but I am in a very net unfriendly new desk at work, very unfriendly, anyways this has given me some time to think about what I need answered from the always eloquent, well educated, knowledgable HH fanbase. (btw I have been reading buy my phone wont let me log on to post for some reason to do with Cookies that I do not understand)
From my readings I can see that there is real division about what to do with the Number 4 pick, my question to everyone except LJP because we already know what his answer will be is this,
Even if you are like me and totally convinced the O-Line needs the most attention, isnt there an argument to be made that Top 4 is too high a pick to use on a guy who will never touch the ball (and I know and agree that the main work is done in the trenches) especially if there is a cant miss QB there for the taking, now forgetting his Shoulder problems, it does seem to be universally accepted that if Bradford can stay healthy he will be a Really Really good QB and potentially great, now I would prolly still go O-Line but how would we feel if this Bradford kid is the second coming of Peyton Manning, or even a Philip Rivers quality QB in 3 years and we passed on him, would we be able to forgive ourselves.
Mind you even after all that consideration, i would still prolly go LT, but my understanding is, that this years LT's arent like the Top 5 tackles from the last few years which were absolute cant miss prospects, this year there seems to be more debate about how good they are.
So my question in a round about way is this, Even if you prefer us to go O-Line does not the fact we have a Top 4 pick preclude you from being Angry at a QB pick, yeah it may not be your ideal pick, but surely you can understand it, particuarly with jasons propensity to meltdown in the last two minutes (and yes I love the guy but I think he has an almost McNabbian streak now of not coming through in the clutch, when was the the last time he led us on a game winning drive other than New Orleans this year [i'm giving him that one as he cant be blamed for Suisham choking])
Also my boss is away Wednesday so please feel free to pepper me with any questions comments etc and I will have a day on the HH site Wednesday (Tuesday your time)
