Then as it turned out, they got Rudolph in the '18 draft and could have instead had a real position player in either Kittle at TE or King at Safety instead of Dobbs in the 4th round. Both Safety and TE positions were needed in the '17 draft.

    Its not like the backup QB played much in the past 2 seasons in Pittsburgh and its not like Dobbs was worth having take snaps in the Raiders game anyways.

    I mean, yes, in hindsight, Dobbs was no better than Jones, and if we knew how that pick was going to turn out, I wouldn't have done it, there was no point.

    It still would've been good to try and do better than Jones, although maybe not with a draft pick that could land you a contributing player elsewhere. That's where Player X comes in. Like I said, if you know you can't do much worse than the player you've got, you might as well just "re-roll" and see if it turns out better. We could do that without a draft pick if need be. But for some reason we thought Dobbs was that guy. I won't pretend to understand it.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    If Cowher had drafted Tom Brady instead of Tee Martin, the Steelers would have 17 more Lombardi’s!!!

    Probably not. He’s not athletic enough for Cowher and he wouldn’t be in the right system...lol

    Not really, though. Tom Brady would've been out of the NFL in 2 years with a broken neck if he'd started with the Steelers. AFCN QBs need to be able to take a hit.

    Yep, Landry was so good he got quickly cut by a team carrying Nathan Peterman as one of it's QBs. Interesting how the other 31 teams don't want to sign him and if they do, don't want to keep him for more than a week

    I don't think that 64 QB are better that Landry Jones...

    I wonder if the Raiders new #1 WR was holding out until they made this move?
