Preparing a year or two early just by gathering picks with hope that a team will be in position to pass up on a potentially great QB? The only time I really remember teams trading down out of a spot is if the QB class is suspect. Goff and wentz were both 2rd grade qbs on most lists up until a couple weeks before the draft. Rams traded out of rg3 because they had a QB they believed in and that they spent the 1st pick in the draft on. What other instances are teams trading out of the top 2? The chargers with Eli, but that was an ugly situation and they knew they he rivers or Big Ben either way.
They would lose money this year, no question. Pegula doesn't own this team to make money. I turkey believe he wants a to build a winning team. The way to do that is acquiring a stud QB. If they don't like the QBs in this draft and don't think tyrod can do it, the only other scenarios is see are Mccarran and Romo. One of which may die on the field this year. The other is a total unknown at this point. He looks ok. But is Mccarran a sure shot star? I'd probably lean towards no. If pegula really wants a QB, tanking MIGHT be the best way to do it. I'm not saying it is. But in his eyes it might be. He landed eichel doing it.
We haven't been tanning for years. The highest we've picked it 3rd and are usually picking in the 9-13 range. Thats not tanking. Just sucking
I'm just saying that it's not a crazy thought. If we did tank this year and do get Darnold or whichever turns out to be the best QB in the class.....then we'll all be very happy that we tanked. I can promise you that. I can't promise that we get the best QB and that's your argument.....which I totally get. But there are different ways to look at things. we won't know which is right or wrong for a few years.
At this point in time, Darnold is most likely the first QB taken. At this point.....he is. Things change. Yes.
I dont want to tank for anyone. I do want us to be smart about draft picks this year and maneuver while thinking towards nexts years drafting of a QB. Get as much trade leverage as possible !
And I agree the view could shift for next draft by the time another College season is done with. But i think Bills should be prepared to draft their QB in the next two years while keeping TT for 3.
And keep our toes crossed Cardale just happens to flip the Big Switch before his rookie contract is over !
