1- Again, before some of you get your panties up in a bunch, this is hypothetical. I'm not saying do this. I'm saying if the FO were going to do this how much (in draft picks/players) do you approve of them paying the 49ers.
2- If this question has been asked and answered in this thread I don't give a shit and won't go read the entire thread. Just answer the question.
You know, the QB-or-bust crowd wouldn't jump down peoples' throats so often if it weren't for bitchy potshots that get fired across our bow all the time. It gets really ****ing tiring to read stuff like "Geno-is-God cult" and not respond to it. That kind of attitude is why the gloves come off so often. It's this dumbass notion that everybody needs to respect all opinions just because they're opinions.
Opinions can be wrong if they're not adequately supported, and that's why QB supporters get edgy, which is why you're being overly defensive about a simple question. Nobody was going to lambast you. People can read. They see the word "if" in your post. They know it's just a hypothetical.
As for an answer to your question, it doesn't make any sense at all for Alex Smith to ask for a release if the money isn't as good as what he's getting in San Fran. And that's regardless of if he gets a starting job or not. That's what's so weird about this. No team is going to want to pay him that much just to be a stop gap. You're going to have to find a team that actually wants him to be a long-term guy. And I don't know if he'll find many teams that want that.
