No Cutler.....No Problem.

After 75 of syndicated years running, yesterday the T.V. drama "Guiding Light" went off the air. Also yesterday, the T.V. drama that was the messy divorce of Jay Cutler and the Denver Broncos came to a very "Rich" end. Hooray for the Chicago Bears! They paid a King's ransom to acquire Cutler from Pat Bowlen's team and are hopefully going to be happy. In the process, they unloaded their starting QB in Kyle Orten, and gave up 2 years of 1st rd draft choices to boot. But where does that leave the poor Niners Faithfull, who I'm sure at this point are ready to press the 911 speed dial on their phones while they slit their collective wrists? HOLD ON! Put the knife down and listen up. All hope isn't gone, it's simply hidden under all the Bull being shoveled by the so called "Draft Experts". The truth of the matter is, out of 119 D-1 Universities, 28 of them are draft eligible. With the exceptions of Matt Stafford and Mark Sanchez, the field seems pretty slim, right......WRONG! Granted, the Niners DO need to find a QB of the future ,but the 1st rd doesn't always produce the best guys. In fact, many 1st rd QB's have flopped tremendously in the last 20 yrs. Anyone remember a kid named David Carr? Or how about Joey Harrington. Ryan Leaf, Todd Marinovich, Akili Smith, Patrick Ramsey, and the list goes on. Need I remind the faithful, that a certain guy who plays in New England was drafted in the 7th rd? 2 Super Bowls victories. A guy, WHO WASN'T EVEN DRAFTED, has gone 3 times and has won 1. Or that the man who ownes most ever SIGNIFICANT QB record was drafted in the 4th rd?  'Nuff said. The bottom line is, San Fran this year has 9 draft picks and surely picking a QB in the later rounds will fill that need. The only real questions are: When and Who? I'll throw a couple names just to make you feel better. Josh Freeman-Kansas St., Pat White- W. Virginia, John Parker Wilson-Alabama, Chase Daniels- Missouri, and finally, (a lil kid that made a superstar out of Micheal Crabtree) Graham Harrell- TX Tech. Non of these guys have been lauded recently by the so called "Draft Experts", yet during this past College season they ALL gushed and salivated over them. The Niners can easily choose 1 of these guys to shore up our passing core AND get them for a song. Remember, "Big Mike" wants to run the ball to death and really all these guys have to do is make good decisions and clean throws. I doubt they will be called on to win the game, just move the chains. Let the reclamation of our Dynasty begin. Who do you think we should take, what round, and more importantly, should we take ANY of them at all? Let me know what you think. Just keep in mind, WE DON'T HAVE TO SELL THE FARM TO EAT EGGS!
