Realistically you could have drafted Dalton this past season....he wasn't selected but 8 picks after your team drafted at 26 overall. Not much of a reach given how well he performed in '11 as a rookie. sure he's only had one season, but he shows alot of promise wouldn't you agree?
Realistically drafting Sanchez at #3 overall wouldn't have been stupid considering he's led Jets to not one but two conference title game appearances. And while he might have sucked as a head coach, Haley was a pretty decent guy who probably could have done more with a QB like Sanchez.
so realistically speaking, you're not correct in claiming nobody was available
