Here's how I'd handle the QB situation...

Not that anyone cares, but I'm frustrated like everyone else and so I'll play Tuesday morning GM. This assumes Pioli and Crennel stay, which isn't my preference, but it's what I believe is going to happen, so we're stuck with it.

1. Stick with Cassel through the bye week. He'll struggle and be terrible, but the season is lost anyway, and he's better than the other options we have, so that's that. Cut Cassel at the bye.
2. Right away, get on the horn with some teams about making a trade for a young backup that has some potential. Ryan Mallet. Mike Kafka or Nick Foles. Colin Kaepernick. Chase Daniel. Colt McCoy. Joe Webb. None of these guys are likely to be any better than Cassel right now, but at least they're young and have some potential for upside. Get one of them, and throw them in there as the starter ASAP (preferably right after the bye week). Let them learn on this system on the job. Again, the season is shot, so who cares if they struggle. It'll re-energize the fan base and by next season this guy should be ready to compete for the starting job. And he'll be competing with...
3. Draft a guy in the first round next year. I'm a Geno Smith guy, but I honestly don't care who it is. Scout 'em, pick your guy, and go get him.
4. Sign a free agent veteran QB this offseason. It doesn't much matter who it is. Someone who's been around and you trust can make do in a pinch. Maybe Brady Quinn can be this guy, but personally I prefer someone new, myself.

You go into next season with a wide open quarterback battle, featuring a first-round rookie, a young guy that still has upside, and an unremarkable (but hopefully reliable) veteran. May the best man win.

The bottom line for me is: I don't want one new quarterback for 2013. I want AT LEAST two. I want a first-rounder AND someone else who is more inspiring than Cassel. Let's hedge our bets. We've got a pretty good roster right now. Let's bring in two or three guys for next year, rather than counting on one. Drafting a first-rounder is great, but what if he's terrible, or God forbid, gets injured? Hedge the bets. Get at least two young, potential QBOTFs.

Thoughts?

I think that's a very good plan. Let's do an aerial banner and explain it to Pioli.

Don't waste a single draft pick this season. Save that ammo for the 2013 draft.

So the idea is to cut Cassel and trade for another teams trash that admittedly probably isn't better than Cassel?

If you read the post, I was clear that while the "other team's trash" may not be better than Cassel TODAY, he's got talent, youth, and upside...none of which Cassel posseses.

Ride Cassel/Quinn through the year.

Cut Cassel.

Let Quinn walk.

Draft a QB.

Sign some chump in FA.

WTF would you want to cut Cassel midseason to trade for some backup? Stupid.

This. Why waste a draft on a QB that may or may not fit the next head coach's offensive system?

Also, there's no way NE parts with Mallet and no ****ing way Philly parts with Foles.

Overall, thumbs down.
