Reasonable is not bashing the shit out of everything. Reasonable is this is not what I wanted but it was the best option at the time. We will have to move on again quickly from another QB definitely sucks but I prefer this to another year of Cassel ****ing everything up.
That's your definition of reasonable.
Reasonable does NOT mean accepting "best option at this time" or saying "I prefer this to another bad year."
I will bash the shit out of the decision to trade for Alex Smith because they paid a huge price for limited upside. Sure, they'll be better in 2013 than they would have been if they'd acquired a cheaper (in terms of trade cost) option, but the difference is likely 5-6 wins vs. 7-9. BFD.
Reasonable is saying you disagree and making an attempt to explain it.
