i want that. i want a team that can get to the superbowl without needing the quarterback to carry them, because the playoffs are so much more defense and blocking oriented than the regular season. obviously i'd love the next manning or brady, but diving into haystacks looking for him usually just ends with an unpleasant itch.
I hear you, and I understand where you're coming from. I just know that when Wilson is required to put the team on his shoulders, he has the ability to do so and actually has done so. I want Keenum to succeed, but so far he's come up empty in that regards. We can blame the team around him, but Wilson too sometimes doesn't have much to work with on the offensive end in regards to a passing game.
At the same time, I don't think there is a Brady or Manning in this draft as well, and if we can move down while acquiring assets, then so be it.
