& I'm fine with that, but no one said they had to have the QB of the future last off-season.
If the guy isn't out there, then in my opinion, you don't go trading away future draft picks, and give a bunch of money to a guy who could be the one.
If Smithiak thinks Schaub can be special, then that's cool, and I'll have my fingers crossed.
But if they had drafted Kolb, or Beck, and he didn't work out, it would be a much easier pill to swallow, IMHO, than the guy you brought in off the street to lead this team to a SuperBowl.
