    just out of morbid curiosity - were you a huge fan of the 9ers moves before the season started? or only now that it has been working FOR THEM you trot this out?

    Their first-round pick this year was on a wide receiver, too.

    I never thought this move was a big deal. Smith has been in the league for 7 years now and really hasn't shown nothing to prove he is a top end QB. He has muddled around in mediocrity for most of his career. Even when he has played well, he hasn't put up big numbers. He ranked 19th in yards last season and 17th in TD passes. This season he showed much of the same. He can do some things at an okay level, but he really can't consistently elevate his game.

    For all of Romo's faults, he is far better than Alex Smith. So, yes there would be a rukus to make a change because it is a totally different circumstance.

    Yeah, really a solid team is build on acquiring alot of talent regardless of position and building a team around those talented players. All this about building a team a certain way according to what positions are taken early in the draft (outside of premium positions) is just a bunch of hogwash really.

    You acquire the best available talent to you in the draft, then build around it, and don't reach for players cause 'thats the way you build a football team'.....thats just BS.

    The reason this will never happen:

    Jerry wants to win, but not at the expense of selling tickets now; which is why having a GM for an owner is a flawed proposition.
