Originally posted by JaguarI don't know what the hell Kiper is smoking. Green says he's going with McCown, and I believe him. It'd be silly to grab another QB if either Fitzgerald or Taylor (or Williams?) is still on the board.
Who is this Harris that PFW speaks of?
Here's Kiper's commentary:
Whether or not the Cardinals feel Josh McCown is an adequate QB, Roethlisberger has the potential to be special, and Arizona cannot afford to pass on an opportunity to upgrade the most important position in that way. Should the Cardinals not opt for a QB, look for them to go after a skill position player, perhaps a WR.
"Harris" is Tommie Harris from Oklahoma.

Ah. The Cards could take a DT, but I don't see Harris going that high in the draft. And Kiper is wrong. The Cardinals *can* afford to pass on Big Ben. I think that since '98 the league has proved that you cannot hinge your whole team on the QB, and that it's the quality of players around the QB that wins championships. There's no reason to replace McCown just because you have a high draft pick.
This isn't the NCAA of 20 or 30 years ago. The death penalty to SMU and killing the SWC hurt the NCAA, the Tarkanian lawsuit hurt the NCAA, and the fragmentation of football TV deals with the demise of the CFA hurt the NCAA.
