Pick up Palmer and draft a QB high in the draft.
Palmer starts and mentors for two years, then young QB becomes starter.
This would not anger me.
While I agree
its gonna cost $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
We have the room. We need to make a bold move.
$$$ for a garbage QB that hasnt done anything but suck in 3 years
As bad as you make him out to be, he's still been better than Alex Smith. He was better last year, he's better this year. While he may not be a top-5 QB anymore, he is far more talented than what we have and would be an upgrade.
I swear every time someone suggests a player that's better than what we have, somebody else has to come in b*tching about it and using any reason they can think of to say we don't need them. What a joke.
Palmer would be a great mentor to a young QB and a very good stop-gap for us until our drafted QB is ready to hit the field. I see no issue whatsoever with going after him.
You ask what he can do that Alex can't? Well, first of all, he can consistently throw more TDs than INTs. He is capable of being an elite QB and he has proven it in the past. I don't know what the problem is right now, but he's not playing as well as he used to. That being the case, he's still a lot better than what we have.
Stop reaching for excuses.
I don't even know if Palmer is better than Smith in all honesty. Smith is younger and healthier. Palmer has been in the same system for years, and has some really talented guys on Offense, and he still sucks. In fact, last year Alex played almost as good as Palmer, and Alex had the worst OC in the entire league. Palmer should not be brought in here, period, dude sucks.
