11 of the last 21 SBs - BOTH TEAMS RANKED INSIDE TOP 10 ON DEFENSE!!!
Only 2 of past 21 years were played with both teams outside #10 overall…
OUT OF 42 SB APPEARANCES ONLY “4” TEAMS RANKED OUTSIDE THE TOP 20 ON TEAM DEFENSE HAVE MADE IT….
31 of the last 42 teams in the SB had a top 10 D….
Unfortunately there will be some that want us to draft a new QB for a variety of reasons: 1. It’s the new shiny object 2. Goff sucks no matter what 3. If we draft a new QB, and even if he sucks, look at all the money we save versus Goff’s salary.
Personally I’ve always viewed defense as a priority. And based on what I’ve seen from the current college QBs, I just don’t see a difference maker over and above Goff.
Draft defense, pay Goff next year to avoid a sizable cap hit. If Goff’s play doesn’t improve, then who we draft in 2024 is obvious and it doesn’t cost us much to get rid of him.
At the time it was believed that RG3, Winston, Mariota, Leinart, VY, Bortles, Gabbert, J Rosen, Haskins, D Jones, David Carr, Joey Harrington, S Darnold, Wentz, and soooo many others were expected to be that guy-
Yup…if you want to focus on Bryce Young’s stature, he most likely will be a bust. Not surprised because you are a Goff supporter. And being such a supporter, you ignore the most important part of being an NFL QB. The intangibles…and Bryce Young seems to have elite intangibles. I’m not saying he is going to be elite, or that I want to take him. But I wouldn’t bet against him due to what I believe is elite football/quarterback IQ.
That being said, I do not love the guy lol for reasons that you doubt him. He is so small…combo that with being on the Lions and I see almost certain bust. If we take him I pray to god I am wrong, but this is not the franchise for him IMO. I’ll take the elite defensive prospect with our top pick. I think we have some nice pieces on the defensive side of the ball with Hutch, Okudah, Joseph, and Rodrigo. Add a couple more and we are on to something. Goff is under contract so the need for a serviceable QB is not there. I would however definitely take one on day 1 or 2. Goff shouldn’t be here past 2023 regardless of what he does going forward, he isn’t worth franchise QB money. I’ve seen enough to you know he just doesn’t have “it.”
