Didn't Miami take a QB 4 picks behind the Eagles?? John Beck... unless you're saying that Philly overrated Kolb.
But with McNabb missing major time for two years running, & he's not getting any younger.. I think it was a good move by the Eagles to get a QB, and start working with him.
but that's just me.
I also would have preferred to stay with Sage, and draft a young QB in the second. Hindsight and all, I think we'd have done just as well with Sage as our starter in '07, as we did with Schaub.
But I'm not bitter....... woo hoo Schaub...... I just think it was a bold move. The kind of move you make, when you see a Bret Farve sitting on somebody's bench.
I know there was talk on this board, that Schaub was the real deal. He was expected to be the
big FA of that period.
I never thought that way, but it seems all those people disappeared from this forum, from CNN once we picked him up.
