For me, its not about throwing away every QB until you find one that is elite. I would take ANY QB in the first 3 tiers, pay him, and roll with him. Romo was there and good enough for me. I know some think you need an elite QB, but history shows that is not the case. Here is my current order up to 16: Tier 1. (Elite) 1. Mahones 2. Rogers 3. Brady 4. Brees 5. Wilson Tier 2. 6. Rothlisberger 7. Jackson (somewhat of a gimmick QB. Needs a system completely designed for his running style) 8. Watson Tier 3 9. Stafford 10.Garrapolo 11. Dak 12. Ryan 13. Goff Tier 4. 14. Wentz 15. Cousins 16. Rivers My QB theory is that you pay and roll with anyone in those top 3 tiers. I would also note that anyone in that third tier you could change around the order and they are generally in the same level of QB. Wentz I would put in the 3rd tier, but he is hurt too often. Rivers is on his last leg. I highlighted the guys in red that in a year or two will probably retire. I put the guys in blue that represent the youngest QB's. I would also note that I would NEVER stop drafting QB's and developing young QB's even if I had a franchise QB. Position is too important.
