Well if we're not picking high enough next year it probably means Alex plays well enough this year to prove himself, so either way we win.
That's a nice and tidy scenario:
If Smith sucks, we get a high enough pick to replace him.
If Smith excels, we don't need another QB.
The only other scenario is if Smith sucks and we 'win ugly' despite him. What if we geta Right Tackle, the O-Line starts run-blocking effectively, and we win 10 or 11 games with defense and ball control?
In that scenario, I think the front office is in a tough position.
