OK Game, I understand YPOV. I am not interested in putting all my eggs in the Weeden basket either. And there are options.Alex Smith- Everyone talks as if Smith is a FA, he's not. The ones who knows he's not assume he'll be released. But why would the 9ers release him? Who do they have to backup Keap if they do? AS's pay for 13' is less than 9mill. Coupled with Keap and the 9ers have less than 11mill in the position. Peanuts for a starting QB let alone a starter and backup. To get Smith is going to take picks. Knowing that, what's a reasonable price? As Headhole has already stated, the floor for the bidding is a 3rd rounder. That's way more than I would pay for a known placeholder.Ryan Mallett- Again pick drafts to aquire, but if we're going to spend them on anybody I would perfer it be Mallett. 6'6" 240 with an absolute cannon for a arm. But I don't think he's as smart as Weeden. He's had off field problems. And he's thrown all of 4 passes in his career with 1 int.So now outside of those 2 who would you have besides Weeden? Geno, T. Wilson, Barkley?Meh, all. And all would cost us a first round pick.I'm all for signing the best FA QB to compete with/push Weeden. For my money I think that's Matt Moore. I'm all for using a draft pick to get a young guy to develop, just not a first round pick. I can see Bray lasting until the 4th rd, afterall Foles did. If not then Landry Jones.Throw them all out there, give them all a fair evaluation, and then go with the best one whoever it is.Then if they all fail, reload next year in the first rd where there will be real talent to choose from.That's MPOV. No need throwing our darts against a board with no balloons to pop.
