I know the topic of QB has been beat to death on here. I've yet to see a full examination of most potential starting quarterback options for next season on one thread.
Tons of potential options but with no real idea of who is really out there who do you want to start for the 49ers at QB next season?
I put only QBs that will be FAs, likely 1st round picks or backup QBs with some real potential to be available.
For the sake of this thead as well as my and many other webzoners tired of every 9er talk thread becoming an Alex Smith thread's sanity I left him off the list. For the love of God let's all just at least pretend he's out of the picture.
My choice is Kyle Orton.
I don't think any of the 1st round QBs are worth #7 overall pick and they def aren't ready to start next season.
I like Kolb but for the ransum the Eagles are rumored to want for him I'll pass his body of work just isn't impressive enough yet to warrant a king's ransum for him IMO.
McNabb was AWFUL in Wash this year, I think he will be better with a stronger team next season however Steve Young's comments have stuck in my head about Donovan. (lazy, if you can't play under shanahan's offense your done etc)
Hasselbeck's going back to Sea, Carroll has said his #1 priority is keeping him and with their playoff success this year chances are he stays put.
Bulger sucks as a starter, Josh Johnson hasn't proven anything but I'd like him as a fallback option if he comes cheap maybe a 4th rounder. Stanton hasn't proven enough to be handed the keys to a team yet.
Kyle Orton although not spectacular is a solid QB with a couple good years left. He looked really good with an awful Broncos team this year. He's a guy that will not lose games and will manage this team well for a couple years while Harbaugh develops his QB of the future.
I have a feeling the zone will be largely split in their preference. Thoughts?
