Those two weren't mutually exclusive. I wanted to let Sage named starter, draft a QB, then let them compete for the job. I think Kubiak would have been ahead of the game had he done that & selected either Quinn or Kolb. Sure, they didn't do much in the league, but Kubiak made Schaub nigh elite. Kolb would have been a monster.
Sage was just a stop gap. A little breathing room, nothing more.
