Nobody's willing to use 1.1 on a guy that may only end up the 15 best QB in the league. But here's the thing - on this team, the 15th best QB in the league would mean more than just about any other draft pick available. And it would at least come with some upside.
It's bizarre to me how gunshy some people are at the QB position.
People are talking about Alex Smith and Matt Flynn as the starter. We haven't learned anything
from the last 20 years. It's battered fan syndrome. Drafting is too much of a risk, let's go back to the well one more time, maybe it'll work, why would we want to gamble on a Geno Smith or a Tyler Wilson when going with Grbac's and Cassel's and Huard's and Quinn's have gotten us so many playoff wins in the last 20 years.
