All you guys screaming for a FA QB, here's the list of FA available...
Free Agent QB list
Not many options out there, some aren't going to leave the team they are on, some just aren't any better than what we had.
And it's going to take time to groom a rookie QB who might not even pan out. Looking at that list, Alex might be the best one available to tie this team over until a rookie is truly ready to go. He may have been inconsistent and is definitely not the long-term solution, but he wouldn't be a bad stop-gap option until there's someone better to plug in. Too bad we've probably booed him out of town. The backlash will be vicious if they actually decide and manage to re-sign him, though it might be the best option.
It is a shame we have so many clueless, classless fans. Smith is/was a niner at heart, and loyalty is pretty rare in this age of free agency. He's not the best QB in the NFL, but he can play, especially when the OC isn't a complete idiot. He took too much of the blame for this teams lack of success. Any QB in the NFL would have struggled with the circus that has been the niners franchise for the past 8-10 years.
