I mentioned the CFL as a possible developmental opportunity, on a "loaner basis", as is done with soccer players all the time. Maybe there is a QB guru who runs a special QB development camp during the off-season (example: Pete Newell's Big Man camp in basketball)? Maybe Mike Johnson should be running that camp. Just sayin......
Being content with trucking along with the same ol' NFL preparation schedule is NOT going to get the Niners back on track QUICKLY. Isn't it reasonable to question why the club isn't being innovative in its QB development program? I don't pretend to know all the answers or alternatives (I don't work in the NFL), but I do know enough to ask the question that more fans should also be asking.
Damn, I'm tired of losing! Let's get this QB development program in gear! NOW!
Two points in response:
1. Are you at the Niner facility in Santa Clara everyday? Do you know how often Nate Davis is there, working out, watching film, studying up? I'd be very surprised if N. Davis doesn't fully participate in the offseason conditioning program, plus all the film study he can handle during the offseason--but I'm only guessing, cuz I'm not at or near HQ everyday either.
2. What is this "soccer" of which you speak?
