Listen: Russell Wilson, NFL And Seattle discussed on Red Sox Review
"In the league is what it is. Right. And can you imagine what it would have been like for Seattle without Russell Wilson. It would have been the worst thing to happen to them in a very very long time. Yes, I think it would have been foolish as I said I would have given up four first round picks for him. We went through why? And teams that have struggled to find QB's don't have QB's and how they have drafted in general and just how hard it is frankly in the NFL to evaluate talent on a consistent basis with your first round picks. They're going to be bus. It's just gonna happen. But can you avoid it consecutive years in a row, and we found a lot of teams. There's a reason why they've been the bottom of their divisions. The last couple years because they have not valuated talent a guy like Russell Wilson is worth every bit of those picks if you're ever going to be able to train them. Now you brought up yesterday on the show pain that off your Seattle. You could if you feel good about a quarterback in the draft. Maybe you'd be willing to do it. Well, clearly, they you're gonna take the known commodity. And that is absolutely what you do nine times out of ten when it's not like Ross's thirty five years old here. He's thirty a lot of lot of Fred left on those time when you break it down the sole go. Goal for any front office of NFL franchise is to find a franchise quarterback. That's it because everything else after that will fall into place, you you you go, and you get your franchise QB and you find your Pash rusher. How do you get to the quarterback? And then of course, I also probably skipped a step. How do you protect the quarterback on the on the left tackle those those three right there? Probably the most important positions you could potentially try to draft slash finding free agency. And of course, you prefer building through the draft. Certainly you you have to take advantage with these other guys Russ Russ is not as I contract extension by any means. But guys we brought up in more discussion on the other cyber out of time, but Watson, Mahomes and Gough those guys the window. There's another year or two left for those teams before they have to pony up here and pay the big bucks and make those QB's some of the highest paid in the NFL and won't be able to allocate some of that money across. And that's why I think that the clock is ticking on the Texans and the chiefs and the Rams because of the. Money. You know, you're gonna have to pony up here in a very near future. All right coming up next. Rick Barnes, head coach, Tennessee, did what we always want from coaches in players and the NBA playoffs will check in there and see how Leonard and the raptors doing"
