Exactly, imagine if Clausen went in the top 10, never mind 1st or 2nd like Russel and Leaf did. At least you can recover from a 2nd round QB backfiring, whereas the Chargers are arguably still struggling 13 years later.

EDIT: just cause I forgot, I went and double checked what the Chargers traded to Arizona to move from 3rd to 2nd in that draft. Here's a quote from wikipedia.

At least Clausen just cost you a 2nd round pick, but actually may have helped y'all big time, what if he had tore s*** up last year and won 7 or 8 games? Then you could say bye bye to Newton.
