I must have missed that part because I don't recall them discussing tanking the season for Luck. But thanks for starting up that ridiculous conspiracy theory that will never happen.
They talked about it multiple times. Not surprisingly, Greeny (from a "fan's" perspective) thought we, or any team, should be willing to throw away one season to potentially get a franchise QB. Golic, from a player's perspective, said he would never root for his team, as a player or a fan, to lose, regardless of the situation.
The real question raised IMO though, was that both basically said they can't buy into the Niners with Alex as the QB. He has proven (to them) that he will never be an elite QB and that the franchise needs someone else to bridge the gap from now to CK if we want to win in the meantime.
Given that assertion, do you think there was a better option available this year? I don't think anyone would argue that we would have liked to upgrade at QB, but now that we are post draft, post FA (mostly) and 1 pre-season game in, was there a better option?
Is there someone you think was worth drafting at 7?
Would you trade a 1st round pick or 2nd round pick and a good player for Kolb?
Would any of the FA QBs (Hasselbeck, McNabb, VY, etc..) have made an impact on this team?
Obviously if we could get a great QB, we should do it. But was there someone better than Alex available and worth the draft pick, trade assets, contract or whatever it would take to get them?
Or regardless of need, was this just not the year to get a QB given the market?
