Good morning ladies and gents. Yesterday, there were reports of the San Francisco 49ers trading for Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy. Personally, I like the trade. This is a relatively weak quarterback class and I've always been of the opinion that McCoy might be able to do some good things in the right system.
That said, I disagree with all of the Alex Smith comparisons. Smith was much better than McCoy, but thankfully, we have our starter in Colin Kaepernick. I wouldn't be confident in McCoy starting or anything like that, but I think he's what you want in a backup for the most part.
Anyway, we're going to get on to the links for the day. Enjoy.
