Default Draft or Free Agency?

Which do you think would serve us better should we choose to pursue a new QB? Pick up a rookie or look around the league? Thoughts?

If Carr is gone, and that is a big if, we should get a vet through free agency. There just isn't anyone this year coming out that is that fantastic. IMO

JaMarcus Russell and Brian Brohm although neither has declared for the draft yet. IMO they are both fantastic.

Vet. The future of our organization is numbah five. We need a stopgap until he picks up the offense.

But could we really get that lucky? I think we need to focus on a veteran myself, and pick up a solid RB in the draft. Just my two cents.

maybe. we dont necessarily need ot get a big name rookie qb, and let kubiak do what he was brought here to do. turn an average qb into a pro bowler. what abt stanton? what round is he projected in?

Second.

He's inconsistent as hell and handles pressure worse than Carr.


When it comes to the topic at hand, projecting who's available on both sides, there's some respectable QBs in the draft, with Brohm and Russell both expected to declare. You add Quinn and Smith to that mix, and you've got four guys who are first round talent.

Looking at who's available in the QB class of free agents/trade possibilities, you've got Leftwich (who can't seem to remain healthy to save his life) and Schaub (Atlanta's asking for a first rounder for him).

I say draft a QB, see what Arizona wants for Kurt Warner (the asking price shouldn't be anything higher than a 6th) and go that route.

We need both imo.

We need a Vet to play, and a rookie to groom.

Draft. Wanna stay at the bottom of the division, send picks to another club for the QB vet. fix the lines....pick up a prospect for qB, bring in a free free agent QB. That's the frst rung on the ladder to the SB. We havn't done it in five years.
Five years of poor tallent desidsions have finally come home to roost.

warners to old and brittle and will probably get injured with the amount of hits he'll suffer here, we need someone mobile and strong enough to take one from the likes of freeney, mathis and co. maybe someone like simms or huard.

I'm not really all that sold on Huard to be honest. He's never really shown me ability to start for extended periods of time, and is better suited to be a backup.

Agreed. A veteran now would fill the bill. There are too many other positions the team needs to target in the draft.

I would like to point out now, and I have yet to see the suggestion, there is a senior QB coming out of UTEP this year named Jordan Palmer.
6' 5", 235 lbs. Oh yeah, his brother plays a little pro football too.
I know that doesn't mean a thing, but this guy would certainly be worth taking a look at.

Is Sage a good enough vet to hold the fort? Must be as everyone was calling for him.

My guess is Sage is the man next year while they pick up a qb after the first round.

I used to think that too. But now I think he really needs to move on. He is a great guy, but he isn't playing smart ball when he does get the so-so protection that our line provides.
The quote that David will be here next year is probably just to qwell having to deal with media inquiries. I doubt it is true, unless the front office are morons. Oh, wait...

Yep, exactly. That vet coming from free agency or Sage Rosenfels, and the rookie being Kevin Kolb possibly.
