I criticize the deal, because I think we already had a QB that could have started for us from day one, and done just as well.
I understand some people think Sage could never get us to the Super Bowl, no knock on Matt, but I don't think our chances have greatly increased when we added him to the roster.
Just so that we're on the same page: I was not saying that I think two second-rounders was too much to pay for Matt. I was only saying that two-second rounders would be too much if we were somehow guaranteed that those picks would have produced two DeMeco-caliber players. Of course, there are no such guarantees, even in the most bountiful of drafts.
