I agree 100% with this thread. We have a lot of young talent that an established/experienced veteran coach who has had success would salivate to shine the light on. Now add that to higher picks in each round and we are very tempting to any coach out there.
Of course, we have that one MAJOR issue: QB.
I hope we sign Alex as a well-defined backup while we acquire an established starter. Either way, if we don't get a starter, then we develop the youngster while Alex becomes Steve Deberg. If he excels under the new coach, then we have two QB's the league will desire and are even in a better place.
Alex either becomes Steve DeBerg or Drew Brees (the Chargers version when pushed by Phillip Rivers). Its win-win.
Are you guys insane? Why would they even consider keeping him after this season? How much more money can the Niners throw away on this guy?
If the Niners handle things right, they will sign a GM/Team President who will then:
- Hire a coach and a coaching staff
- Work on free agency and decide which of our players stay and who goes
- Sign or trade for a free agent QB and draft a developmental QB in the first two rounds.
I get the sign or trade option....I just dunno who we would want. I like Alex and think he's gotten a bad rap, but I also realize that he is 90% done in SF. Not only will the team be wary of resigning him, but why would he want to come back to this mess.
My biggest fear is him moving on, spending a few years with a team as a backup and then playing like we hoped he would when he was drafted.
