The question is this. If Hill doesn't look like a good stopgap this season, and nor does Smith, do the 9ers still draft a high round QB in the offseason, or do they continue to develop Davis?
If the Niners drafted McCoy or Snead or Bradford, Davis would never have a shot at a starting job here most likely.
Which is why we need to work him into the offense gradually. Like I said before, if Hill is stinking it up, our season is done. We might as well put Nate Davis in on occasion to see a little bit of what we actually have with him. If he doesn't get put in there against real NFL players and we stink it up at QB this year, how will we know if we actually NEED to draft another QB? We'd have no idea if Nate Davis could be our guy because we will never have seen him play against starters. We might not even need to draft another QB, but we'll never know it because without seeing Davis on gameday we will likely pick up a QB with a high draft pick and Davis will be a backup no matter what.
