Originally posted by Otter:My point was about the relationship between what Smith may decide and how that affects the circumstances required to draft Stanzi. He ignored all that by going back to his long held position of dislike for Alex Smith. I was hoping for something that would give some indication as to his value for Stanzi. It's all good. I'm not interesting in another round of AS harangues.Originally posted by dj43:Originally posted by fakers23:Would you care to comment specifically on what I said in my post?Originally posted by dj43:Originally posted by 1251alex:Originally posted by valrod33:Originally posted by 1251alex:Originally posted by Thorhawk:
I think its going to be Stanzi the 49ers take.
I hope so
me too. I kinda feel we'd be reaching though. But a QB is a QB I guess.
It would be a big mistake to take a QB just for the sake of taking a QB when there are better values and greater needs. The only way the 49ers use their 2nd pick for a QB is if Alex tells Harbaugh that he will not come back under any circumstances.
I would not be at all surprised if today's meeting between Harbaugh and Alex is for the 49ers to get a commitment from Alex as to whether or not he will come back for at least one more season. If he agrees to stay, then the 49ers will use the 2nd round pick for a CB. If he is ambivalent or not willing to stay, then the 49ers will be forced into a trade for a vet or move up to get Dalton or Kaepernick. I don't think they will be able to afford to sit and hope Stanzi falls to them in the 3rd.
I seriously hope the 49ers aren't this dumb.. You don't make any long term plans with a guy that hasn't won in 6 years.. I think even the biggest Smith suppporters would agree you don't give the guy more then 1 year or your pushing it.. Not only that you don't ignore QB spot again for him!
he doesn't need to comment on your post, this is not an Alex Smith thread.
