49ers QB Situation


When a team has two Hall of Fame quarterbacks who led you to five Super Bowl rings the thought of your team ever having questions as to who will be under center next year never amounted. The 49er Faithfull has been dealing without the luxury of a consistent and reliable quarterback since Jeff Garcia was released in 2004. We have dealt with the likes of J.T. O’Sullivan, Alex Smith, Trent Dilfer, Ken Dorsey and Tim Rattay. The thought that the 49ers are not any closer now is scary. To win a Super Bowl a team needs a franchise quarterback but at the least a reliable leader who manages the game right and gets the win. We somewhat have the latter in Shaun Hill. The question I have is do we hang on with Hill to see what he can do with more game experience and draft a QB in say the 3rd or 4th round hoping he develops quickly? Or do we try to trade for a proven QB with experience? The last question will be harder and cost lots of draft picks so I say hold onto Hill and see what he can do and draft a QB you think might be a durable QB in two to three years. This is saying a lot for GM Scott McCloughan and the Joke Family to do, making a right decision when it comes to drafting talent. So let’s go Hill!
