Rivers has peaked in my opinion and is on his way down. If Norv gets the boot, and he should, his replacement could do a lot worse than cutting Rivers (don't know the salcap. Implications), picking up Smith and looking to draft a high pick Spring 2014. 2013 draft doesn't look much at qb I hear.
This I agree with. San Diego is about the best option as far as being the most ready. New York is a maybe, but if we just relocates south, he wouldn't have to deal with that awful media. He would have a pretty good TE at his disposal and some ok receivers. Worse case scenario, he'd probably look the way he did in 2009, which numbers wise, was pretty decent and would be enough to make a playoff run.
Of the QBs coming out this year, there aren't too many that would be comfortable building a team around, especially when there is a QB that you could win right now with that may be on the market in Alex Smith if you solidify your O-line, RB position, and get a reliable TE (clearly Smith is much better throwing to the TEs than any other position).
