If the Patriots are interested in QBs and they have Brady, why don't we?

    Maybe our scouts don't think very highly of most of the QBs in this year's draft.

    Maybe we'd like to spend the majority of our rookie visits on defensive players or players that are rated highly on our board.

    Maybe most of those QBs suck.

    I don't care what the patriots are doing with their pre-draft rookie visits. In fact, I hope they're visiting with, and draft, a bunch of busts.

    When comparing the Cowboys and Patriots - I trust what NE is doing 10 out of 10 times.

    It is hard to argue with their success and our failures over the past 17 years. In fact, what we are doing now, finally is imitating their success by not paying for last years' efforts, see Richard Seymour, Lawyer Milloy, Vrabel, etc. etc. as opposed to us holding on to dead wood like it was somehow going to revive. I am not asking you to care about the Patriots, I am asking you to learn from their success. But then again, you might just be the kind of person who would rather be stubborn, do it your way and LOSE.

    Actually, I think if you read the reports the Cowboys have shown interest in about 12 QBs. So it would seem to me that we are, whether we know the Patriots are or aren't is irrelevant. Do I think we will go QB in round 1? No, and I don't think they will either.

    It's not his way. It's the team's way. Whichever way they go, it's right and about to reap major success.

    One of these years they'll be right and hit you with an I told you so.

    One thing you can be sure about with the Patriots is that anything released in the media should be viewed as nothing more than a smokescreen, as opposed to what they are going to do in the draft. They took Tebow out to dinner in 2010 too.

    My response was to your thread title and link.

    And it looks like one of the other posters is stating that there's reports that the Cowboys have indeed shown interest in around 12 QBs. Which sort of, you know, destroys your premise with this thread.

    I don't understand. If the Patriots will what? They have scouted players including QBs. The Cowboys have done the same. I believe every team has as well.

    Now if we are assuming that the Pats absolutely will draft a QB in the first round(I don't think they will) there is still a big difference in their situation and the one the Cowboys face. The Pats pick 29th while Dallas is at 16th. That is a smaller investment to put into one of this years QB prospects. Brady will be 37 when the season starts while Romo will be 33. Statistically, Brady just came off one of his worse seasons in recent years while Romo had one of his better statistical seasons. That Pats also have fewer holes to fill at this point, so they have more flexibility to draft a QB in the first. Dallas have many different areas they need to focus on to improve the team, so they don't have as big of an option to draft a QB early.

    Again I don't understand the premise of the thread.

    Exactly, which is how you know this was a hate Cowboys thread. No team has not scouted QBs.

    Teddy Bridgewater has fallen into the second round thanks to his less than stellar pro day and his teenaged wonderlic score. Not saying we nab him in the second.. just sayin. I still like the following QBS in order of preference and hope one of them ends up wearing the star after this draft.

    1. Johnny Manziel (will light up the NFL.. would love the see that happen regularly at AT&T Stadium)
    2. Blake Bortles (big strong QB. Reminds me of a more mobile version of Big Ben)
    3. Derek Carr (coming out with something to prove. Has all the skills to be successful at the next level)
    4. Teddy Bridgewater (can't let a bad pro day define a draft strategy. If you look at the whole, this guy is going to make his mark in the NFL... and it won't be on a clipboard)
    5. AJ McCarron (I don't care for Bama but can admit that this guy was the picture of consistency at a very high college level)
    6. Jimmy Garoppolo (he's from Tony's alma mater..lol)
    7. Logan Thomas (coming off a disappointing year.. can be had in the later rounds)

    That is a reasonable question. The way you phrased it with your thread title and link did not reflect that reasoning.

    I don't think any of the QBs in this draft are worthy of a first round pick. I do think there are some options at QB that Dallas can nab and begin the grooming process.

    You're a bad fan, but it doesn't make me feel any better. I always feel great.

    Tom Brady is going to be 37 in Aug. That's a few years difference,
    Not saying the Pats aren't a better run organization.

    It's a reasonable question but the age pressure is a bit different. Maybe we are looking.

    They've been very fortunate to have found Brady.
