And second, who thinks he seriously makes picks like Bruce Carter anyway? Jerry plainly told us that was Lacewell and old crony Butch Davis.
Lacewell also believed in giving away your draft for a franchise QB, he tried to advise this two times when the Manning brothers were entering the draft and he got "laughed out of the room". Lacewell understood what a franchise QB meant to an organization.
Pardon me, but despite what people think of Lacewell he sure has some very sound ideas when it comes to drafting.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
