      Certainly nobody could anticipate the actual panic at the QB position. 4 taken in the first 12 picks of the draft? Absolutely amazing. Cris, Phil should be giving up cherry cokes for the rest of his broadcast career. Solidifies the notion that normal evaluations of players does not apply to the QB position for sure.

      Except Gosselin, who I suspect was born in 2025, and is just playing with us.
