Worse QB that you daft > better QB you trade for/ CP
The reality is in the end it doesn't matter as long as you have the best possible option available to you as your QB and that's what Smith is at this time.
Had we drafted Smith CP would think he was good enough.
I am not a Freeman fan, and would not have been happy with a trade to acquire him either.
That said, I would be less unhappy with that trade.
He is still young, and if he started to really grow and became a top 10-12 Q, he would open an 8 year realistic window for this team.
As I've mentioned before, only 4 SBs have been won by QBs over the age of 33.
I am not entirely against the idea of trading for a QB, but trading for a 29 year old QB reaa
