Young QBs are winning in this league so getting a proven vet isn't a must, besides most of them are system guys anyways..
If Teddy is in reach I think you pull the trigger and move up to get him. Not sure how much I give up since 1/4 of defense will probably need replaced. Replacing BM is a must also
1) Cassel. Unless we get an RGIII/Luck/Matt Ryan type of rookie, I don't want a rookie starting.Give the kid a chance and let him learn. Hopefully Cassel can manage the game and throw 3 yard passes.
2) trade: three guys look intriguing to me. Nick Foles, Matt Barkley, Kirk Cousins. Foles would definitely be my first option.
3) this QB class is pretty deep this year. Teddy Bridgewater, tajh Boyd, Johnny Football, Murray, AJ McCarron.
I think Tajh Boyd could be a very good QB draft choice for us in 2014. He's really looks like a good QB to me. Whatever the case, we need to make the choice to eradicate the reach QB problem going forward. No more reaches, please!
I hate to say it, but I think we need to go after a proven vet like Rivers at this point and make a run at a bowl before AD is wore out. Grooming another project is just going to waste the rest of AD's career, especially at the tortoise like pace we move while failing to groom these pet projects of ours. I'd take Freeman over Ponder, but I don't think he's going to lead us to a bowl either.
I'm not confident that a rookie can step in and play well with how bad our coaching staff is, so I'd prefer a vet who can call his own plays.
You are going to have to put a name to the vet you are talking about that we would have a chance to get in either free agency or a trade. I cannot think of even one vet that fits your description that is attainable for the Viks. Who al I missing?
