In conversations about joining the Packers, Andy Reid convinced Mike Holmgren to trade for a kid named Brett Favre who was buried on the Falcons roster even though he wasnt being considered for the QB coach.Is the “QB selection game” really anything more than sheer luck (and timing - the Pats did draft at least one good QB, but the timing was such that they would never have been able to keep him until Brady moved on). Maybe I’m forgetting something but I can’t think of a team in the modern NFL that has shown a consistent ability to evaluate QB prospects better than others.
In his first draft with the Eagles, where half the top 10 picks were QBs, he grabbed Donovan McNabb.
He grabbed Alex Smith from the 49ers when everyone was convinced Smith sucked.
He drafted the current QB for the Chiefs, too.
