QB’s like Dilfer never win on their own. Ravens defense got Dilfer a ring. Bucs defense got Brad Johnson a ring. Rypien who wasn’t that bad of a QB still benefited from one of the greatest offensive lines in league history. Broncos defense got the shell of Fivehead a ring.
Pats defense was kinda lousy last year, looks ok on paper this year but they are still not close to what those other QBs had. They need something from the QB position a lot better than they had last year.
bingo! That’s why we do not trade up for a qb and instead build a strong defense and strong running game. Then we draft a game manager at qb.
