    So drafting a short 5`10 QB would not be setting a trend?It certainly isn`t following any known rational trend.

    If they believe Murray is better than Rosen you pick him and move on getting what you can in a trade for Rosen. If it turns out okay then it's not a big deal.

    I am talking about keeping a bust to see if he keeps busting.

    I mean, there are 4 examples in the history of the NFL of anyone in the ballpark of as bad as Rosen ever amounting to an average or better QB.

    And those GMs stared at those odds and said "So you are saying there is a chance!"

    This is why none of the anti Murray stuff matters to me.

    You are telling me that a QB might bust. I am telling you we already have a bust.

    This thread is worthless too!!! ❗️Cards are due for a game changer pick. If you look at our last 6 years of 1st rounder you will see that they are nothing great. Or even remotely great.

    Whether or not Rosen is a bust and whether or not Murray will be good are 2 separate questions though. If the anti-Murray stuff is legit and he ends up being a bust as well because of it, then it will be a mistake to take him. If your reason for wanting to take Murray is just that you have no hope for Rosen, then I don't see why you wouldn't be just as on board with taking any other QB. May as well trade down and get assets and take Haskins or Jones if it's just about moving on from any QB who had an unsuccessful rookie year.

    Sure, let's waste 1st round picks. Sounds like a load of fun! Let's set THAT trend...wait, no, we already have. Let's CONTINUE that trend!!!

    Yeah, you're right, circumstances are absolutely meaningless. I mean, we all know QBs play on an island, right? I'm so glad you absolutely know he's a bust, Chris! That'll totally save the Cards FO the agony of making this decision.

    You aren't short on...confidence. I'll give you that, but nothing else.

    The Seahawks elite defense won them their Superbowl not Russell Wilson. We should be trying to build that type of defense instead of trying to find the next Russell

    Krang - If Rosen is average, what were we doing a year ago drafting him in the first place - wasting our time, energy and resources?

    Or drafting a short bust and hoping you can buck history.

    Teams draft average to below average QBs in the 1st round all of the time.

    If the Cardinals have already identified that this is Rosens path, then good on them.

    No, bad on them, because they won't have even tried to develop him. And bad on them because it would not just mean you're admitting he's average or below average, but hot garbage. Not a good look for an already suspect talent recognition FO.
