Its going to take several years to build this team. Look at TY and AC having to be replaced. You need those kinds of players anyway. Nothing says that you have to start building with the QB and wait on everything else until you find him.
Marvin Harrison didn't explode until PM cam on the scene, true, but he was here and that certainly helped PM. MH did well in his early years with Harbaugh.
If Herbert or Love is there at 13 and the colts pass for a DT and Love or Herbert go on and excel in the next year or two Ballard is going to look bad. I still think If he is sold on one of them you do everything to get them. QB is the number one priority if he is sold. You never risk losing a QB by waiting that you are sold on. Ballard might have a longer leash with the Luck retirement but failing to address QB will get him fired. Especially if Jacoby looks the same as last year and doesn’t improve. He might improve some with healthier and better weapons but he isn’t going to turn elite all of a sudden.
It is still too early to predict but I hate to say as of now I have it:
-Cubs need to find a way to keep Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, and Contreras and add an Ace pitcher somehow, otherwise we will be around .500 IMO. We already lost Hamels. I still see the Cards being the best in the division. I picked them to win the division even last season if you guys remember. To me the Cubs were better on paper on last season than they look now.
