Just in time for draft day, via ESPN, take a look at these handy rules for drafting a quarterback courtesy of Bill Parcells, who would know, I suppose:â†µ
• He must be a senior, because you need time and maturity to develop into a good professional quarterback.â†µ
• He must be a graduate, because you want someone who takes his responsibilities seriously.
• He must be a three-year starter, because you need to make sure his success wasn’t ephemeral and that he has lived as "the guy" for some period of time.
• He must have at least 23 wins, because the big passing numbers must come in the context of winning games.
Quoth our friends at Blatant Homerism: "Interestingly, of the seven quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl in the 2000s, five -- Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning and Trent Dilfer -- met all four requirements when drafted."
So, Jevan Snead is gonna be fine, is the point here, right?
