Alex Smith isn't a world beater, but he won't lose games for us, either.
I'd bet almost anything that we have at least 7 wins next year and Oakland has less than 5.
Yeah we'd very likely do well if we made the trade. However, if we didn't, we'd look like gigantic ****in idiots, and we've done that enough for my liking. If we trade the #1 pick, regardless of how this draft class is perceived, I'd like to at least get SOMETHING guaranteed in return out of the deal. And I certainly wouldn't want to take the risk of losing something.
