3. People who take quarterbacks early are morons.
I don't understand this comment? In a scoring system like mine, QB's get 6 pts for every touchdown and .1 pts per every 2 yds, and only -1/ int. Also a 10 point bonus for throwing over 400 yds. Rodgers, Brady, Brees should all most certainly be taken in the top 6 picks, then Stafford and Newton are gone in the 2nd.
Last year in my league Rodgers went early in the 1st and he scored 538 pts and with his 2nd rd pick he chose Frank Gore, and even with the crappy year Gore had, the guy got 721 pts out of his 1 and 2 picks.
The guy who took Foster #1 over all, got 306 pts out of him, and then grabbed Rivers in the 2nd who scored 380, for a total of 686 pts. The guy with Rodgers picked later, and outscored him even though he moronically took a QB.
Now I understand your point bc looking back, he could have waited and on QB, drafted 2 solid RB's and grabbed Stafford in RD 11, but it is not moronic bc Brees, Brady, and Rodgers, now Stafford and Newton are able to outscore the top RB by over 250 pts.
I bet you the top 11 scorers were QBs......
Your argument is flawed.
Also if you think 4 QB are going to pass for more then 5000 yards like last year, I got a bridge to sell you in the merry land of OZ.
Also the top QBs change every year and there will be one you can grab off the wire or late that will out score or be right with Rodgers, Rivers, Brady, Stafford.
Did you know that Rodgers only passed for more then 28 TDs in only one year. I am convinced that last year was an anomaly or the rest of the league will pass for more making the pool at QB deeper and more supply and less demand.
Of course every one thought last season Vick would be a top QB in the first round too.
I bet you also only one QB was drafted in the first round last year allowing them to secure a consistent RB or two before they pick up their QB or they got lucky and hit with a Sproiles
Either one of two things will happen.
It will go back to normal this year and you screwed your self by not getting the consistent RBs which dry out way too early
the rest of the League will catch up and pass more meaning the difference between Rodgers and Rivers is not as much as the difference between a McFadden and a Mcgahee or Gore.
Unless you are in a 2 QB league stay away from QBs in the first.
