Franchise signal callers are what its all about. They make the bus go. Just look at what Schaub did to us this season.
The first round is where you have the best shot at getting a franchise QB. That should be pretty apparent.
I'm not against taking a QB - don't get me wrong .... I just don't see any real franchise QB's in this draft. Every one of them is a huge gamble tho some greater than others.
I do want to see Keenum finish the season before we make the decision we have to draft a QB .... he's played pretty damn well so far despite unfavorable conditions - no running game and a sh!t OL.
Also filling those holes at LG & RT via FA .... will cost premium $$$$.
Lets at least get to the end of the season before we finalize our evaluations of the QB spot - its a near complete unknown , those other spots (LG , RT , ILB , NT) aren't.

Do you pull the trigger on Teddy Bridgewater or no?
Tough question .... one I wouldn't want to make just yet.
