Honestly, I can't argue with the Casey Hampton pick; he solidified that defense (making them #1 immediately)... but... when people try to say that Cowher never had the opportunity to draft a franchise QB (the Steelers always draft too late), I think of Brees.
Dawson, Unitas, Montana, Marino, Brady. This team has been passing on franchise QB's for decades.
