No man. I'm not saying to throw a rookie to the wolves. Just saying it's not always bad to have a high value rookie QB watch and learn for a year or two. Obviously the giants think the world of manning (more than I do but that does not matter). Why wouldn't they not want to have a quality prospect sit the bench for a year and learn from him?
With this logic the giants would be even worse this year than their 1-7 record and thats a HUGE gamble! Theres no guarantee your franchise QB will ever be good.
But you know what is a guarantee? Saquon being a stud. Kudos to the giants for realizing this. Its so much more than just winning now.
Saquon is a piece for now and the future so to say they messed up the pick is total idiocracy to me.
And Im a dolphins fan, I know a thing or 2 about not having a franchise QB.
Dolphins passed on Kuechly, Stephon Gilmore, fletcher cox, Melvin Ingram, chandler jones, etc.... to select Ryan Tannehill. How has that worked out?
Theres no linear path to success in the NFL but drafting a sure thing like Barkley shouldnt be second guessed.
