I would rather have Jimmy Clausen start over Alex Smith

Based on what? Smith has been in a shitty situation in SF his entire career. He's still managed a 49/52 TD/INT, ratio which isn't terrible. I'm not saying go out and trade a 4th rounder for the guy, but if he's cut why not give him a look? Clausen has shown absolutely nothing. I never liked the pick and I still don't.

Have you seen Alex Smith play?

I've got Sunday ticket, so yes, I've seen pretty much everyone in the league play for the last 10 years. He's not as bad as SF fans would have you believe. It's hard to have success when you've had head coaches named Mike Singletary and Mike Nolan. And how many different OCs has he had in his time with SF? He could very well be the next David Carr, but he could also finally carve out a career for himself.

McNabb is winding his career down. I'm not sure there's a point in acquiring him.

You still didn't answer my question either.

Alex Smith sucks.

I think McNabb on a 2 year deal to provide early guidance and an easy transition into the starting role for whoever we draft (even Luck) would be a solid idea.

McNabb is not a bad QB by any stretch and should have enough gas left in the tank to start while the young QB learns then provide mentoring and help him learn from the bench after transitioning out of the starting role.

Alex Smith sucks.

Glad to see you put so much thought into that one. And what exactly has McNabb done to prove he's any better? Getting benched for Grossman?

Im not opposed to signing a vet AND Draft a QB. But signing a vet and not addressing the QB position in the draft (like we've been doing for years) has gotten us nowhere.

Id gladly take McNabb to help groom a young QB. but hes how old? Exactly how long do you expect him to play?

We got a highly tauted rookie QB this year, remember? The most NFL ready QB and you guys are already throwing him under the bus. This board will crash and burn if we draft Luck and he has a shitty rookie year.

Alex Smith does suck - it doesn't really require a lot of flowery wording to get out there.

We have a young team. We are building with youth. We got rid of most veterans. Why then would we bring in McNabb or any veteran, who maybe has 2 halfway decent years left in him, to keep the QB spot warm for an eventual rookie. Then when the rookie was starting to play, the rest of the team would be playoff ready?

No

It makes more sense to have a young QB learning with the rest of the young team. It would also be more in line with the M.O. of the FO.
