Chicken or the Egg: Why the Green Bay way is Better than the New England way!

This is a QB league, and the ability to find and develop a good QB is essential to NFL success.

The New England Patriots are highly thought of in many circles in the NFL, especially when it comes to talent evaluation. However, I think that this is a bit of fools gold when it comes to their front office personnel like Scott Pioli. I know people will point out Dimitrioff, however he had a high draft pick to go get Matt Ryan. And, for the one Dimitrioff, you have a long list of Mangini, Crennel, McDaniels, Pioli, Weis, The clear cut elephant in the room in my mind is Tom Brady. The fact is this--New England got lucky. They caught lighting in a bottle; I do not think they are nearly as good at evaluating talent as some seem to think. I also don't think Belichick created Brady, and turned him into the Hall of Fame QB he is today. I think Brady has blossomed in that system, but again the Patriots got lucky.

I want to make this clear! There is no better game day coach than Belichick. I do not think that makes him a great evaluator of talent though, especially at the QB position. My evidence of this is the fact that he has never developed any other QB, and he selected Tom Brady in the 6th round. Its not like they knew what they had. They took a late round flyer on a guy. No QB has left the Patriots under Belichick and Succeeded.

Contrast this with the Green Bay Packers...where our own Andy Reid (1992-1998) and John Dorsey (1992-2012) cut their teeth with Green Bay Packers. These guys have repeatedly shown the ability to Identify and develop the QB position.

Consider tthat Andy Reid once coached Brett Farve, Kurt Warner, Mark Brunell, Matt Hasselback, Donovan McNabb

On the other side of this is John Dorsey who also helped Identify these QB's but also helped get Aaron Rodgers.

These guys have had multiple QB's come through their system and have no less than 3 future HOF'ers, 3 super bowl winners, and 5 of these guys have played in a Super Bowl. Add to this Reid getting all those Philly guys to play above their talent level

Gentleman, I do not think Clark could have done any better in getting guys who can not only identify QB talent, but develop it. This is why our team will eventually be successful.
