I hated that trade, but I never rooted for Green to fail.
I grew to respect Green, though I never had faith that he could make plays consistently late in games.
But I hated that trade for the very same reason I hated the trade for Montana.
I don't need to necessarily draft a QB, but I want a young QB that has the potential to lead this team for more than 6 or 7 years.
I'm watching Matt Cassel grow into the position, and now believe he has the chance to be that guy for the next 6-8 years.
But damn, I hope to hell that we someday find and groom a guy that can be that guy for 10-12-13 years.
