Christ we're talking about the THIRD STRING QB!!!!!
I swear you would have though we traded Vernon Davis and Patrick Willis to the Cardinald for Matt Lienart and a 7th round pick.
Again say it with me .....
Now say this with me.
WE HAVE NOT HAD A FRANCHISE QB SINCE GARCIA(haven't been to the playoffs since...gee what a co-in-ki-dink huh)
Nothing matters until the Niners either get a Franchise QB or develop a once in a couple of decades type of Defense.
So unless you believe that Franchise QB's can't start their careers as 3rd stringers...I would say that being a 3rd sring QB does not automatically invalidate the overall importance of that player to the future of the Franchise
but 3rd string QBs in the NFL level dont develop through practice and coaching during the season because they dont get reps. They have to improve in the offseason and be ready at a moments notice. The team, notably singletary, did not believe that Davis did those things.
Understood and agreed. BUT, if one believes that he should have another shot at another offseason, then he should have been kept as our #3.
For the following reasons.
1. He has a small salary
2. If cut, we could lose him forever
3. The difference between T.Smith and Nate at #3 is not going to affect the 2010 season in any real way
I really don't care what Sing thinks, this should have been Trent's call. If Trent believes Nate was going to f**k up next off season, then by all means...cut him now.
If Nate turns out for somebody else, this is all on Baalke imo
