    Re: Burwell: Advice Rolls In For Rams On No. 1 Pick

    Taking a QB as the # 1 overall pick actually has a very good chance for
    success. The % falls somewhere just above 50%. For every Tim Couch there is a Peyton Manning!
    Since 1998 Couch, David Carr, and Alex Smith have been busts, yet Peyton, Eli, Carson Palmer have had tremendous success. Even Vick made several pro-bowls before his little incident. Stafford also had relative success in his rookie year. So you see picking #1 is as good a spot as any too pick a QB, just be sure to pick the right one!

    I don't like 50% odds with this franchise. We've lost waaaaay too metaphorical coin flips as of late for me to trust in luck.
