Sorry, late round success stories in the QB position don't come around very often. A Brady, a Romo, a Warner come around a few times a decade. IF you get lucky with them, fine, but you can buy Powerball tickets too and hope to make a living at it.
The vast majority of franchise QB's come in the 1st round, and have of them end up missing. Even the NFL "geniuses" know this.
But fine, you want to say, "Why can't we get more than 24 points a game out of an NFL journeyman, surrounded by less than journeyman talent" or "why can't you get mileage out of these 2 time losers"
well, maybe that's why this team has been as bad as it has been for years.
His line was, "if I'm going to be cooking the food, shouldn't I at least have some say over choosing the groceries?"
He wouldn't take another coaching job unless he got to be GM.
