Possible upgrade?


I know full well I am going to be blasted for this, but, I don't care. Just a shot in the dark. Now that Jacksonville has parted ways with David Garrard, what do you think of the Niners giving him a shot to compete for the #3 spot? Let's be honest, like him or not, Alex Smith has THIS YEAR and no longer to show that he's capable of leading this team. Colin is simply not ready to take the helm, and unless you followed him in college, who the heck really knows what Scott Tolzien is capable of? With Garrard, you have a proven commodity. No, he won't light up the scoreboard like Brady or Manning. However, he will come in with a plethora of real game experience. Also, if we pick him up after the first week, we can sign him to the vets league minimum and not tie up a ton of money in his siervices. Think of it this way.....if the offensive line is as hodge podge as some on here claim, a big, mobile, veteran QB at the #3 spot can only help us. Think Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich in Pittsburgh. Yes, they have Dennis Dixon, but Batch and Leftwich have contributed plenty to the stability of the team with their timely intervention at times of injury (self inflicted or not) to Rothlesbuger. Let me know what you think.
