to follow up every wildly successful "who is our qb next year" thread I figured I'd post a thread on who is our best second option. You know in case Plamer stays in cincy, and Bulger signs with AZ, while Seatle gives 7 first (yeah I said 7) for Kolb, and Smith goes to... well just goes, and McNabb retires. Who is your second option? Go....
edit btw I left Carr out for a reason...

First choice would be Palmer, then McNabb.... then Smith over Kolb because he won't cost us a high draft pick and is just as turnover prone. I say give up the farm for a franchise QB next year when our team is built up to make it easier on that rookie when he does start.
Not that I'm praying for this with my hands folded and my eyes shut tight, but what I think we're gonna see, and what I think would probably be the best thing to see, is Smith coming back on a two-year contract, starting for at least (and hopefully at the most) the first year, and then Chris Ponder (or whomever you might be hoping we select; I say ponder in the 2nd) taking the reigns after 1-2 seasons. This doesn't seem out of reach or unreasonable.
Mind you, the two quarterbacks I selected aren't even on our roster, and it's no sure thing that whatever rookie we select will take the back-up spot from Carr. It would be a really dtrong sign for the future of the club, though, if he did.
