There are currently 33 players in the discussion as starting QBs in the NFL. Perhaps you feel there are 34 if you think that like Philly the Raiders job is wide open. Of that number... 23 were drafted in the 1st round. 4 in the 2nd round. 3 in the 3rd round. 1 in the 6th. 1 in the 7th. 1 is a UDFA. Someone explain to me why so many 1st round picks aren't facing the scrutiny the UDFA does without it being that HE is in Dallas, and they aren't. Even if you point out the number of pups in the 1st round who have 3 years or less as starters that isn't going to wash. Romo has been under this scrutiny since the bobbled snap in the 2006 post season, and that was his 1st year starting a single game. Explain to me why Rivers, Schaub, Cutler, Palmer, and Vick aren't under more scrutiny. Explain to me when Ryan, Stafford, Sanchez, and Bradford are going to arrive at that scrutiny. of that list only Schaub isn't a 1st round pick, and he's a 2nd. Note that I am not in any way touting Romo here, so you can't see this as an "excuse." I'm merely asking an obvious question. Namely, why QBs who are expected to be franchise caliber guys aren't under the same scrutiny as a guy who was a long shot to even make a team? Just food for thought.
