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?


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.

Alex Smith in 2010: 12TDs 10INT 60.4% 210YPG 79.7 Rating
Donovan McNabb in 2010: 14TDs 15INT 58.3% 260YPG 77.1 Rating

How exactly are they any different? It's not as if McNabb is running around anymore. He's got only 70 yards less rushing than Smith and 6 more fumbles. Plus McNabb is 34. He's just as ridiculous of a suggestion as Smith. One would be far cheaper and less competition to sign though.

Alex Smith has never won a playoff game. How many games has he won? He sucks, look around, ask around. Any way you spin it he sucks. And unless McNabb pulls a Favre with another team, he looks washed up. He is lacking weapons though. Hed make a good mentor.

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.

Keep riding on that one.

I hope Richardson isn't dumb enough to secure a losing season by starting another rookie QB. He's a business man and one bad year hurts, two bad years is a trend. I think he'll allow the new caoch to "dabble" in FA instead of being held out of it.

He's shown flashes. I'm not saying he'll be the savior...but he wouldn't be a terrible option. Smith/Luck/Clausen...I can get on board with that.

Smith also hasn't made the playoffs, but that's got a lot to do with him being on a shitty 9ers team for the last 5 years. You make a good point with the last bit though...but if Luck eventually took over would McNabb feel "disrespected" again?

I would rather get Luck too so they don't have to look through the bargain bin. Clausen is god-awful, always has been and always will be. Unless the goal is to suck again and get the #1 next year to draft Luck then there's no reason to believe Clausen is the long term answer.

this isn't about who we want starting, it's about a mentor for the young guy. Someone on the sideline that can help him out when times are rough. McNabb may be that player but honestly I suspect he will still want to start.

so really, it's like this:
Luck & Mcnabb & Clausen/Whoever or
Alex Smith & Clausen & Whoever

I could live with this scenario. If Clausen improves and AJ Green proves to be a NFL capable QB, then we'll have the envious scenario San Diego had years ago with Rivers AND Brees. Then we'll have some serious leverage.

Meanwhile we have a veteran that can get us more wins than the rookies could under the same circumstances.

Don't misunderstand me, I don't think Smith is a long term solution. I want Luck. But the only thing McNabb has over Smith at this point in his career is his experience. But that may be cancelled out by feeling disrespected again if and when Luck outplays him.
