Well, go ahead and fire me then. I really didn't like working for you anyways.
If we get Matthews at 1-1, and Mettenburger at 2-1, I'm good.
EDIT: Given that this year's draft has NOBODY worth the 1st overall pick, and if you don't have any takers in trading down, then you minimize the risk and take the SAFE pick. All the QBs on the board are at risk of being a bust. Given the David Carr fiasco, taking that risk again without addressing the OL is stupid.
Matthews is the less risky pick. Play it safe, and take the risks in the lower rounds.
