No. The fact that it's a debate shows that many people have not thought the subject through. twitter.com/JoelHartranft/…

@MarkEckel08 @RoobCSN Too many people think of QB position in zero-sum terms. A team should get a bunch, like GB in early '90s.

@Sprouserj @JesusZoidberg @RoobCSN That's why I'm in favor of drafting lots of QBs. The odds aren't good you'll get a great one anywhere.

@MarkEckel08 @RoobCSN I'm not suggesting they shouldn't draft a QB. They should. I'm suggesting they shouldn't dump SB first.

@JesusZoidberg @RoobCSN Actually, it's not. I wouldn't jettison Bradford even if the #Eagles picked higher than 13. mobile.philly.com/beta?wss=/phil…
