Eagles Owner says getting a Franchise QB a priority!!!!
Really? Maybe even to the point of desperation? ;) Stay with me for a minute on this...
[COLOR=#ffff00][FONT=Georgia][I]“We need someone to step up, whether it’s an existing young quarterback or somebody we go out and acquire,” Lurie told CSNPhilly.com. “We know -- this is no secret -- quarterback is the [ultimate] position and the most important difference-maker.”
[FONT=Georgia][I]“The better quarterbacks are real consistent. Rookie quarterbacks are not. Troy Aikman, John Elway, Peyton [Manning]. The only guy I know is Dan Marino, who was great from the get-go. I don’t know anybody who wasn’t like really erratic (as a rookie). So I think you’ve got to just look at it really in an analytic sense. Anyone who thinks that a rookie quarterback, whether it’s Nick or Matt, is going to flow through and be Player of the Week every week is silly.”[/I][/FONT]
And following suit this off season?....my guess is....
Let the bidding begin!! :)
