Anybody who doesn't understand this needs to go back and take the remedial course in NFL 101. The thing is it's almost impossible to overstate the value of a "franchise QB" in the NFL.
We'll see in year two. Playing QB in the NFL is not just about talent, that's only part of it. There are a lot more talented QBs who've come & gone in the NFL with less than half the success Matt Schaub has had. & Kubiak picked him up off someone's bench. So I think they may evaluate QBs a little differently than you do.
