    #1 need is a QB plain and simple.... with that said, if we keep winning football games it might not be a bad idea to draft defense first instead of reaching for another marginal talent...

    +1 This team will go no where without a good QB.

    We have now dropped to the 6th pick, haven't we? From 2nd or 3rd a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed the heck out of the win yesterday though. Especially sitting with Bear fans.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Plus think about this...If we don't get Bridwater we can trade back one or two spots to a team that needs a QB & still get Clowney. With the right moves we could be the Chiefs of 2014.
    I was really high on Clowney at the beginning of the season and would have been crazy happy to get him in the draft. But I have watched him all year and I really don't want him. Watch his next game and watch what happens if he gets stoned by a lineman at the LOS. If it is a pass play he just stops, like he doesn't know what to do. I watched him play several times, the last being Clemson. He just stops on pass plays if he doesn't get by with his first move.

    I think the draft is going to be deep for 2nd/3rd round QBs, and I have no problem getting one there if the guy we really want is gone. Unlike many people here, I really don't see a "overall #1 pick" QB in this year's draft; Luck AND RGIII were both that, but is Bridgewater really as good as either of those 2 blokes?

    Now, temper THOSE comments with the knowledge that I really don't watch too much college FB; but last year in the championship game, a LOT of people were saying McCarron didn't want his girlfriend to do photo shoots or interviews because he was jealous that she, in the end, would be more famous than he will EVER be. That last due to his talent level...has he got THAT much better this year?

    I don't know a lot about Bridgewater besides one game I watched, and though it was a good game, I didn't see "#1 draft pick for sure!!" written all over his play. If you all are sure he is a lock (as much as anyone can SAY he is a lock), I won't argue; but getting more defense at this point isn't a horrible idea.
    No no no.......
    That is the kind of thinking that ruins teams and players.
    Saints had Drew Brees...what did they do? Traded up to attempt to draft an elite back in Ingram (failed). Atlanta had Ryan...what did they do? Signed Jackson.

    Teams realize that to be a superbowl contender... you need an Elite QB and a running back.
    You can't rely on "someone handing it off to AP". That's the shit that got us in this Ponder mess.
    Have you realized that every team in this division has a top 15 QB and a top 15 RB. We need to do the same. We need to aim for a QB that's in the top 10 or we will be doomed to crappy season.

    They played Clemson at the start of the season ( week 2 I believe). So you saw 1 game this season? Also lets add that the kid was hurt. I don't care if we get him because I am begging to move to the 3-4 but when did you watch him?

    We obviously need a QB, but I fear the top-5 picks of this draft are not the place to find it. I'm not sold on Bridgewater, I don't like Manziel at all. Don't konw much about Carr. I think McCarron would be a good fit for our team. He's done well when he needs to, and he's won an awful lot of games. He doesn't have the biggest arm, but bigger than Ponder. His decisionmaking and accuracy are already better. He can take advantage of good matchups while teams focus on taking away the run game. He'll be a good later pick, but I have a feeling someone will reach in the top-15 for him. He could be like Drew Brees. Not a huge arm, playing with a hall of fame RB limited what the Chargers needed him to do, so he could learn and develop. When given the chance to shine, boy did he shine in the right system.

    Throwing away top picks on QBs because you need a QB is a good way to set a team back. (See: Alex Smith) If we're top-5, and wind upw ith the second or third best QB, we've wasted that pick.

    Face it, we've picked a bad draft to suck.

    You are mistaken they played Clemson last week. They beat them and had to hope Mizzou would lose to get into the SEC championship game.

    How did Tajh Boyd look that game for Clemson? Could he be a good QB for the Vikings? If not, why not?

    I, personally, like Boyd ALOT. He has great touch on the deep ball and has good awareness. One of his flaws right now is his footwork, which really shows up with his short passing game, but I think it could be addressed.
