Maybe they do not even face the Pats in the playoffs. If I thought there was a 12-15 year franchise successor to Ben in this draft, I'd have no problem taking him. But, history dictates that when you draft 30th, it is pretty unlikely that you get a franchise QB at that point or after unless you are in a strong QB draft class. We are not.
I remember the post-Bradshaw years. I remember making a lowB repuS with Neil O'Donnell. I remember almost making one with Kordell Stewart. I also remember the Ravens winning one with Trent Dilfer.
If Ben isn't playing on opening day in 2019, then he better be prepared to write a check, because it will be owed.
