Most of us agree we should get a rookie QB somewhere in the first round or two in the draft this year. What's less discussed is who the Niners should get by way of a veteran to either start or at least be a backup in 2011. We'll need one: I don't want our team to be in a position where we're forced to start either Carr, Troy, or a rookie (see Panthers debacle). A lot of fans don't want Alex back. My question to them is: do you have a better solution? Alex Smith may very well be the best free agent on the market.
Now if I were him, I wouldn't come back. But should the Niners try to get him? I think so. And if we can't, who else is there?
