Bernie Kosar was often used as the best example of an 'average NFL quarterback'. He certainly had his strengths, but who in their right mind would draft someone in the hopes that they'd become an 'average' QB? Basically you want either the guy with star written all over him, or you want some late rounder with lots of potential (unless you completely get away from the 'star' mentality and just try to build a solid team with lots of depth, like the Patriots).
whoa! where in the hell have you been DD
Good to see you in here pimping your Pats again
About Ratliff, I was suprised when they made the pick too, but after reading up on him, I'm feeling very good about the pick. The 40 times are overrated anyway (Emmitt Smith's 4.7 40 time that dropped him way below Blair Thomas in the draft comes to mind) I trust that Marvin and staff knows more than we do. Cheesehead, no disrespect, but I trust he knows more than you too
It's all good; we'll see how to truly grade these drafts when the players get some action on the field.
