you certainly aren't going to get any worse at the backup position - as much as I love Charlie and as much as I would at least keep him as #2 or #3 - he's earned either IMO - we do need another young guy that isn't going to get hurt from simply breathing like Leftwich (who I also like but is a wasted roster spot IMO). Get 1 this year in the last 2 rounds - even if it doesn't pan out in the long term plans - it will not make the depth at QB any worse. Who knows - might even be a diamond in the rough.

We def need impact players at 1-3, hoping a special teams player/guy of the future at 4, and wishful thinking for a guy with huge potential in the 5th - hell, all depends on position. As hard as I've been on Ben and his supporting cast - it wouldn't be totally out of the norm that they improve enough to get us into the playoffs - we saw a flash in the first half of what they could do - so, go defense in first 2, possible WR/RB in third?
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
