The price for Garoppolo has reportedly increased to at least two 1st. I'd rather just be bad another season and draft one of the very good to great QBs in next years draft.
The only problem with that plan is the Bears can very easily pull a Bulls: Be good enough to be just mediocre and not get a pick high enough for these QBs
The NFL is very different than the NBA. You can win a SB with a game manager at QB but in the NBA you need a Lebron or curry.
It's also a lot easier to draft a superstar.
While i agree it can be done, you would need an all-time elite defense like the 85 bears, 2000 Ravens, and to a lessor extent the 2015 Broncos (playoffs they were just as dominant). Look at all those years the bears had a top notch defense AND special teams. They never won anything because they couldn't shore up the QB position.
If you want sustained, long term success in the NFL, it starts and ends with the Quarterback. How many players on this years Pats were on the same Pats 16-0 team in 07? Not many, if any, besides Brady. How about the Steelers, how many guys this year were on the 2 SB teams besides Roethlisburger? Colts had a great run that lasted nearly a decade with Manning, will likely have another great decade soon with Andrew Luck. Packers will always be contenders as long as Rodgers is breathing, the list goes on. Quarterback should be priority #1, 2, and 3
