Since there are no guarantees in life, I prefer the team I root for to try and win every year.
For those that think tanking and drafting Lawrence will bring the Colts to the promised land, I did a little research for you. Unless the guy you're tanking for has the last name of Manning, you're likely not winning a SB with a QB selected in the top 3 picks.
Let's go back in history to see which teams stunk and drafted a QB with the 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick in the draft:
1998 - Manning = 1 SB win, 2 appearances, with team that drafted him, Leaf = nuff said
1999 - Tim Couch = ouch, Donovan McNabb = 1 SB appearance, Akili Smith (3rd pick) = who?
2000 - none
2001 - Michael Vick
2002 - David Carr, Joey Harrington
2003 - Carson Palmer
2004 - Eli Manning = 2 SB
2005 - Alex Smith
2006 - Vince Young
2007 - Jamarcus Russell
2008 - Matt Ryan - 1 SB appearance
2009 - Matthew Stafford
2010 - Sam Bradford
2011 - Cam Newton - 1 SB appearance
2012 - Andrew Luck, RG III
2013 - none
2014 - Blake Bortles
2015 - Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota
2016 - Jarod Goff (1 SB appearance), Carson Wentz (his team won SB with their backup QB)
2017 - Mitchell Trubisky
2018, 2019 - let's wait and see.
