This isn't so much about Clowney 1-1 as it is wanting a dedicated QB with elite arm strength. I will admit I'm stained by the Schaub yrs.
You still amuse me comparing TB to Dalton. In fact, with the 8 qbs left, who has elite arm talent? 2, CK and Newton,that's it. Of all the qb in the playoffs, 12 teams, only 2 were drafted had elite arm talent. You don't need elite arm talent to be a great qb. In fact, very few qbs who can throw the ball through a car wash have been sb winning qbs. If you just check the last 10 yrs, Ben and Flacco are the only 2. Coming in, you want a guy with a nfl which TB has. As he gets older and stronger,his arm will get better. He can make every throw inside and outside the numbers now. Can he drift,fade,and throw the ball 70 yds like ben or flacco? No, but that's never been a requirement to being great either.
