A big fear of any NFL team, especially in the modern era, is to get stuck in what Giants GM Dave Gettleman called "Quarterback Hell." It can doom a team to mediocrity, or worse. Sometimes it can last a decade or more.
Gettleman acknowledged that one year ago, speaking to reporters at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., about the prospect of the Giants taking a quarterback in last year's draft. He warned that if a team picks the wrong guy "and he fails, you set yourself back five years." And he described that "Hell" as having a team that has a "quality defense, they've got a good special teams, and they're going 7-9, 8-8, 9-7."
