How about a second and that guy with the mullet that we had as a 3rd QB for a short time this season???

Don't forget, they also have Grossman!!

Default Re: Possible future QB solution?

Either you keep Schaub or find a guy that you really think of as having "it".

Cousins is a good QB but he doesn't truly has that "it" factor.

With teams drafting heavily at the QB position, the next few years will present some good prospect.

Turn some of your picks into future picks and save them for a trade up in another two or three years sounds like a better plan.

Never say never, especially when he's already done what you say will never be done.

And besides, he's done a couple of things that Schaub has never done in his career. Play in playoff games, and win a playoff game. Obviously, that's all about to change.

Uh, yes please.

That's the guy at Arkansas, right?

Wears #8, too, IIRC. I'm down with him.

But as someone else said, we've only seen him in live, NFL action for a game and change. Need more data.
This. Yates did an admirable job last year but the guy stares down receivers like there is no tomorrow so let's see if he progressed a bit before annoiting him. Luckily, he should have plenty of time to do so and a few opportunities to get some action in games like the last one since we will beat the Vikings and secure homefield

Default Re: Possible future QB solution?

It takes guts to change out a starting QB that is doing reasonably well. Harbough took a huge risk by changing out Smith who was having a good season. Even though it appears to be paying off, I just don't see very many coaches doing that including Kubes. If the change at QB doesn't work out, it could cost them their season and their jobs.

If RG3 doesn't change his game, Cousins will often likely be serving him breakfast in bed.............except on Sundays..........

Whoever our next QB is, I hope he some scrambling ability. Not RGIII type, but at least enough to get out of the pocket occasionally.

I don't think Yates is terrible, but I agree he's a backup & not a stater. Giff Nielson, Oliver Luck type imo.

One way or the other, we have to get a new starting QB in the next couple of years to get up to speed. Schaub isn't going to last forever.

Solution needed immediately at qb, this a good team now. Window will close. Low ceiling with current qb. Don't know if backup is answer. Would love to see opportunities explored. Hell Seattle qb, what a third rd pick? Roll the dice like Seattle and San fran

I don't think we have that kind of knowledge about Cousins though. Need to see more and there's no rush. Schaub wins a Super Bowl this year and the point is moot anyway.
Smith was still doing a GOOD job when he got hurt, it just so happened his rookie back up came in and really impressed.

And don't forget that Colin Kaepernick was drafted by Harbaugh before Smith had ever taken a snap for him. Many folks thought Smith was gone at the time Harbaugh was hired, and when he did re-sign, most of those same folks thought he was a one year band-aid (which apparently only turned out to be a half a year or so off).

Chances are if Kaepernick wasn't already on the roster at the end of last season, San Fran wouldn't have used a first or second day pick to find his replacement, and by the same token, who's to say if Gary had someone like Kaepernick on the roster, he might very well be the starter and Schaub would be playing out the last season of his contract as the backup.

Who knows.

Yates is far from terrible. Remember the win against Cincy? That didn't happen on its own. He out played Matt Ryan his first start. He played last year like a rookie. Pretty much how the rookie QBs are playing this year.

And dont forget the 3rd and 19 yard run the game we clinched the division. with less than 2 minutes remaining. He did lead us to a victory against Cincy in the play-offs as well. I would give him some credit and a true chance before calling him terrible.
