    And that is the problem with BR. They let anyone post there. There are no expert voices, no one with connections to anything. Just fans voicing their opinion as we are.

    If you want to post their crappy "articles" do so on your own board and stop spamming this board with that garbage.

    Anyone who uses that crap as anything more than a discussion starter has issues. It is NOT a Lego new source.

    Teams that draft quarterbacks whenever they feel the pick has value seem to do well. I have no issues with picking one up every year, as long as, it has potential as an investment. Everyone needs a backup, and most figure out a way to lay claim to three.

    Blanchard was a steal; McCown, unfortunately, is a dead end. I think you gotta keep the arrow pointing up on the majority of your back up and rotational players. Declining vets and JAGs serve a purpose on the roster, but when you find good values in that arena it is short lived. Not good for QB's.

    Depends on how you like to gamble. You can spend or trade for that first round prospect and throw money at a risk with serious potential. You can spend more money and pay for others to develop a QB and trade for backups (hopefully with some upside left), and/or you can throw ufas and low round selections at it with rapid turn over and see what sticks.

    I don't know what is the most successful, probably high first round picks. It just doesn't seem like the best solution for a good franchise to make, to trade up for the top picks costs too much. I think for the bears drafting in the 3rd or 4th and taking a stab in the draft when you feel there is value is the best way to go, once you have addressed your team's needs. If we get the O Line figured out, and plan out the successors for our secondary I don't care when or where they draft a QB.

    The only thing I don't like is when the back up and third string becomes stale. Glad Campbell is gone, but McCown/Blanchard should had a victor if possible last year. The goal is to get a backup that puts competition on your franchised starter, that is when your investment returns a profit...

    This next draft is so QB rich...that I really believe deep down that Cutler just has to wow them this year, in order to avoid being replaced. Not every team picking in the top 10 will need a QB and there are about 6-7QBs in this next draft that would easily be an upgrade over Cutler. Its just a fact. If they were willing to deal all those picks for Cutler, they should be willing to deal for one of these young studs.

    Remember.... excelling on college, being part of a "rich" or deep draft, doesn't NECESSARILY equate to success in the NFL.

    Loki that was not a very 'rich' or 'deep QB' draft and you know it my man. In fact, there were many scouts who made it clear that Leaf was the biggest gamble of the draft. IN fact, Manning was the only bonafide franchise QB of that draft. This next draft is going to eclipse the '83 draft.

    And I'll tell you another thing...as a guy that is a CFB junkie...best QB of this upcoming draft is...Stephen Morris from the U. One of the best arms to come into the NFL in a very long time. He's the real deal. That's who the Bears should be targeting, not that fairy Bridgewater.

    This whole topic is completely premature. I like to speculate as much as the next guy, but this is absolutely impossible to have an intelligent debate over at this point. There are way too many moving parts here that will effect the outcome.

    We dont know what Cutler will do this year. This is the most important thing and will have an enormous impact on any qb draftees. For instance, if he flops completely or has some kind of devastating injury and we look to move on we are going to draft a hell of a lot different than if he puts up career best numbers. Case one I would expect a qb in rd 1, case 2 I would assume mid round guy.

    We also don't know what kind of years these college kids in question will have. Its completely unpredictable to start trying to put together a draft board at this point.

    All this aside I'll focus on what is relevant, after what we have seen from McCown and Blanchard its safe to expect a qb drafted at some point last year. I, and many others wanted a qb at some point this year to compete for the backup and develop for the future. Hell, who knows maybe we could have even hit a home run. Others were riding the Blanchard train but he gives us no legit option at least in the short term. Frankly, there is a reason he wasn't a D1 qb and a reason he wasn't drafted. Yeah, there are gems every now and again but are we really, honestly relying on a D2, UDFA 2nd year man to save our season if Cutler goes down? Get real, he isn't that guy and prolly will never be.

    So yeah, I agree at some point we will draft a QB in the 2014 draft, that is about as much as we can say at this point. Anything else is just very premature.

    Grizz, I think that was one of my original points. But for the sake of something to talk about, hell why not play the game

    This is (one of the many reasons) why nobody takes you seriously.

    It's not a "fact" that any of the QBs next year will be an upgrade over Cutler.

    I agree they should pick up a QB in the first 4 rounds regardless of how Cutler performs, however.
