Would you be ok with...
 
Not taking a QB at all in this draft?

Research shows that [URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/2011/03/31/use-caution-when-drafting-a-second-round-quarterba"]2nd round QBs have been mostly disappointments[/URL], so unless you get a top flight guy in the 1st round it's basically a waste to take a QB in later rounds.

Do you trust the likes of Grossman or Beck? Or picking up a stop gap veteran such as Hasselbeck?

That's kinda my thought anyways.
We have so many needs in this year of a possible shutdown that it may not be a bad time to stock up the trenches. If the season is shortened then the impact of a new QB will be less significant.
The free agency QB crop this years sucks as far as I'm concerned, I'd just stick with Grossman.

I'd be ecstatic if we don't draft a qb this year. Build the defense this year. DE, NT, OLB, ILB, CB. If we can get 2-3 starters that fit a 3-4 defense I'll consider it a great draft.
In a dream world, trade down with NE for the 17 and 33 pick. Take DE Cameron Jordan (or Watt if he falls), then NT Kenrick Ellis and with the 41 pick ILB Casey Matthews.
The only qb I'd want this year is a 5th or 6th rounder.

I agree I rather not burn a pic on a QB project. Hopefully we suck next year so we can draft Andrew Luck.

Great thread. I'm 100% behind not taking a QB cause this is not a good QB class. We need to build the team in the trenches so I'd play Beck or Grossman, try and get anything we can for McNabb and shoot for Andrew Luck next year.

Not me. I mean it really wouldn't surprise me if we didn't in the first two rounds. But we need a QB. So I hope next weekend doesn't pass without us taking a QB at some point in the draft

I guess you normally pick a later round QB for the purpose of having a good backup QB. But we already got a good back up in Grossman for years to come, so it makes sense not wasting a pick on a later round guy.

Id be happy starting Grossman this year and waiting till next years draft to find a QB in round 1.

Ive been screamin about poor quality pool QBs this draft for awhile, so no.

Next years crop has two legit top ten guys already and 2 more legit overall first rounders.

I think from a quality standpoint you have two borderline first round picks with Gabbert and Cam this draft

No this team needs to draft a QB

Re: Would you be ok with...
 
Can I get excited about Grossman or Beck (or Hasselbeck or Bulger...) leading this team? Definitely not. There's ZERO chance at a Super Bowl with any of those guys. So when it comes to QBs, take a shot, because you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

If we don't come away with a QB in this draft, I COULD be OK with it but we MUST hit on those 1st and 2nd rounders with quality trench players on either side of the ball. Building the trenches first and finding a QB later does make some sense, look at the New York Jets.

But no position impacts the game like a QB, and in my estimation we're hopeless until we find the next guy capable of joining the Brady/Manning/Brees echelon. I'm not interested in a one-year run at a Super Bowl. I want to be on top for years with a consistent shot to win a title. Only the Peyton Mannings, Tom Bradys, and Drew Brees of the world do that for you.

I agree. I'm not sure which QBs our coaches are in love with, but if we don't get one of those QBs in the top 2 rounds, then we still need to come away with somebody. We need to at least give ourselves a chance at getting lucky.

I guarantee you the Patriots didn't know what they had when they took Tom Brady in the 6th round. But they took him and got lucky.

If we can't land the guy our coach really wants, at least take a shot with a low pick. I mean, hitting on a 5th round safety is like winning $100 on a scratch off. It's very nice. But hitting on a 5th round QB is like winning the Powerball.

I say we wait for Andrew Luck or Matt Barkley. If Shanny & co play our cards right this year, we'll have ammo to move up (if we need to), and you have to know Andrew Luck will be better than anyone we can draft this year...

It's not okay with me. It's the teams biggest need and the most important position...can not support seeing an entire draft go by without addressing the QB position at all.

I'd be ok. We will draft a QB this year though.
