Wouldn't mind Leinart.... also wouldn't mind trading down and picking up a couple of picks

Me too, as there are two defensive players on the board who would shore up the D-line and LB corps. The D's been ok this season, but teams still run through us like pork fat through a goose.

Yeah, but the D isn't the biggest problem on this team, and I think we need to address the QB situation immediately... AB just can't do it

I'm a certified, card carrying, bull-horn blowing, nukular bomb dropping AB critic, but the D's gotta get better first and there will be many other options at qb. Simply cutting AB after the season makes the QB position better.

Between the OL and the D that is where I would address first. Amac...

What has AMac proved thus far? That he's not smart and can't learn the playbook quickly. Are you really willing to turn this team over to a kid who has never played an NFL game, or leave it with AB?

Well -- I think we have no shot at the playoffs -- but the optimist says give it 1 more loss. After the next loss we should start Amac -- let him play out the season -- evaluate him -- if he progresses don't draft a QB -- draft a stud linebacker and keep Brooks (renegotiating his contract to get better cap numbers) and Amac. Give Amac a fair shot to win the starting job next year and go from there. If Amac doesn't look like he got any better with experience then draft Leinhart or Vince Young (personally I like Young better)

That's prob the best idea 4ss. After the loss to the Pats next week, go ahead and plug A-Mac in. We would get 6 games to see what he has, and where he is. If he is even decent, or better than what we have, cause frankly how could he be worse, then just maybe we pass on QB. And just maybe someone would be desperate enough to trade into our spot should we be high enough and not want Leinart. And just maybe we can come out of the draft with a stud LB or CB, and a stud O-lineman to go with Jamaal, and LeCharles. And just maybe someone would be dumb enough to give us a second day pick for AB as well, and maybe we can use that with our second, move back into the first and get another good player.

Or we could trade AB to San D for Brees or Rivers. He would be the backup for either one, but at least he has started in the NFL, and would give them a small amount of security.

don't want leinart personally. dude i would pull a dallas and just trade a lot of our vets. keep the young guys like will smith and grant ,bentley and the likes, you get the idea. get as many picks as possible for the next tow years and roll. we would probably suck at first but damn we do that now. we would probably win the super bowl in 3-4 years. well thats just me. i would get rid of deuce at this point too. i love the guy man but i haven't seen anything from him the last two years. with this injury it may take him another year to really get healthy again. like james from indy. i am not sure the injury is the same but seems close enough. well that is just me. lets stop playing games and really clean house

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?
