Realistically speaking...

Realistically speaking, we can/should win out the rest of our games. We play @Carolina, VS Dallas, and @SanFran. Knowing us we will probably drop one due to an overall bad performance by the team, but we will end up with 6 or 7 wins by the end of the season.

That being said, we aren't going to be in the ideal place to draft the QB of the future. We might be able to land one if things fall our way. These three guys are the only guys I see making an impact 

Andrew Luck -Proj. #1(Not Likely) 

Ryan Mallet -Proj. Top 10 (Maybe -Most people have us getting him)

Jake Locker-Proj. Top 15 (Maybe)

If we end up getting Cam Newton (He is a beast, don't get me wrong) or a guy that is a "project" we are in store for another mediocre season. Sure Skelton looked good in his first game.. So did Max Hall... Im not taking anything away from them, but i just don't see them as the long term answer to our QB situation.

You might say well why don't we draft a QB in the later rounds, or Sign a FA:

Idk if you've noticed, but every time we play a QB who doesn't turn the ball over, or can sustain a drive longer then 3 downs we are always in the driver seat to win games. That being said- THE QB IS THE MOST IMPORTANT POSITION! Why not secure it for years to come? Getting an Older FA is going to put us back down here in a year or two, whats the point? We didn't plan or think Kurt was going to do what he did so don't use that as an example.

You might also say... Lets trade for Kolb:

Kolbs #'s are similar to DA's - Sure he looks like a "fit" but he plays the same game Matt Leinart did. He checks down 85% of his passes. The only deep portion was to DeSean Jackson or Maclin who aren't hard to hit after they have burnt their man (we don't have one of those guys).

 

With all this being said:

We have a lot of draft picks this up coming draft. I think we trade a few away, move up and draft us a guy for the future. Idk if Matt Ryan, Sam Bradford, Matt Stafford (when he is playing)  -Just a few. Are good enough examples but I sure as hell would love to be wearing a Luck, or Mallet Jersey for the next 10 years. I just think we could make some moves and steal a guy Like Luck, or Mallet. 

 

In general.. I think we NEED to make some moves this offseaon, cause im tierd of being the small market team who is scared to make a big splash.
