Heck, in the worst QB year I can remember, he found the best one. As Alex Smith goes, I don't expect him to sign a big deal here, if he wants that he can go elsewhere, but the people saying it'd be Cassel all over again are wrong.
Well, if you trust him so much with QB's, why not just draft another one in the 5 round?
