Originally posted by jimbagg: I suggest that everyone hold-off on getting too enamored with QB Davis. He will have to make it through waivers to get to the Niners PS at the end of TC. Another team could easily steal him away at that point, esp if he gets some PT in TC and there is good film on him. No way that he beats out the crafty vet, Huard, for the #3 spot on the 2009 roster.
Actually, I see 2009 as the final QB evaluation year for both Hill and Smith. I see McCloughan's move to get the extra #1 pick in 2010, as part of the back-up strategy to trade-up in that draft for the Oklahoma QB kid, if needed.
If Alex Smith struggles in pre-season, while Huard and Davis look pretty good, then I think McCloughan won't be afraid to cut the Alex Smith experiment immediately.
and it sets us up drafting a QB next year if Hill has a mediocre year.
