Re: Weeden, QBs and the draft 


I don't think Weeden's position as starter is sacrosanct by any stretch, but I don't see them bothering with an alternative unless they think it has the potential to really put them over the top.  Just picking another team's placeholder or bench warmer seems kind of pointless.

It's entirely possible that giving millions to Alex Smith would make the team marginally better.  But it seems a lot smarter to spend those millions making substantive upgrades elsewhere, or picking up a prospect who could develop into a QB you don't fire in the middle of a playoff run because he short-arms everything.
