Post Backup QB?
I would love to see TB back 100% this season but signs seem to point to that not being the case. Even if he is back 100% he will likely leave next season for a chance to start somewhere assuming Bradford remains starter. Should we be looking to draft a backup QB or sign one in free agency?

Did SF release Kapernick? I would like to draft one and sign one in FA, but not just anyone...

We have a healthy Heinecke. I would hope that we either draft one or sign someone UDFA.
Regardless, absolutely No to a Kaepernick signing. He's terrible.
At the cost of QB salaries, I would actually draft one every other year. Eventually they hit and we can trade away backups...

Yes but I wouldn't take the guy for free. He's an idiot.

Free agent QBs I wouldn't mind:
Bryan Hoyer
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Blaine Gabbert

The (notable) rest:
Colin Kaepernick
Geno Smith
RGIII
Case Keenum
Christian Ponder
Shaun Hill
Vince Young
Josh McCown
Matt McGloin
Mark Sanchez

I would be ok with Sanchez or Keenum... The three at the top will probably want starting positions.

Is Heinecke officially a bust? Everytime this question is asked, no one has the answer. We dont hear anything from the front office, like always, cause they have NO idea what to look for in a QB (with the exception of Bradford, but he cost a small fortune). If Heinecke isnt impressing anyone, try and find someone late that show more promise.

They kept him on the roster even after his injury, so I would guess they don't view him that way. I assume he is still on the team and will be competing for the backup job.

In other words, no he isn't a bust. And even still, I don't 5hink anyone taken after round 4 can ever be considered a bust since at that point it is a crap shoot anyway.

Well why would we have an answer? The guy doesnt get on the field. And I dont know how you can be a bust when you go undrafted. That is not considered a "bust". Why would the front office mention much regarding Heinecke?? Let me know how many front offices talk highly and openly about their 3rd string QB. This post doesnt make much sense

I must say, it really drives me nuts the way the word "bust" is thrown around on here. I feel like there needs to be a specific definition to this. Maybe I'll try Urban Dictionary :lol:

Brian Hoyer signed with the 49ers pretty quickly after free agency started.

Seriously though, if the Vikings would have drafted McCarron this thread would be moot, as I suggested. And Bradford as well. And we could have drafted a couple more questionable WR's.

What is a ‘bust?’

Quote:
First, let’s define the word “bust.” Over the last few years I have always defined a bust as a player who does not play up to the level expected from where he was drafted. In saying that, it can be a lot easier for a player drafted in the top 5 to be a bust than it is for a player taken in the bottom 5 of the first round. Much more is expected of a top 5 player since he is supposedly one of the elite players in his class.

Busts aren’t just players who fail that were first-round picks but also players who were former second- and third-round picks. After the third round I feel it’s almost impossible to label a player who didn’t work out as a bust


More at the link.

There's also the simple Webster's Dictionary definition:

Quote:
bust
noun
a complete failure : flop

is that versus mean boobs? Are they like Hurricane Gussie? (Old truck driver joke, gene tracey)
I think further research is needed.
We're going to need some kind of proof of this claim. Of course if this proof doesn't land any of us in jail.
Kidding of course.

Round 4? Taking a QB is a crap shoot in round 1. 50% of them in round 1 fail.

Heineke did well enough to warrant him as the two or three qb.
I see no reason not to draft and keep drafting qb's until we find that guy. Whether or not we already did remains to be seen. No reason to stop. Did the Patriots?

The thing is, Teddy may not be ready if Sam gets hurt early on, or even midway through the season. For that knee to just give out like that has me so worried. Thats why I would lean to Heineke, instead of a draft. He at least has a little experience with the players and plays. In fact I would make Heineke #2 QB for a while. Hurts to say it cause I love Teddy and think he could be good someday, but Heineke maybe be good the first day of the regular season if we had too.

This is why I'm in favor of drafting Peterman. I think he can pick up the system and run it in less time than some of the other QB's.

For the life of me I cannot figure out how we as fans can come up with viable options and solutions in certain areas and we draft a wr that was not on too many radars when we could have upgraded positions that are of need again this year. Wtf? I think a collective of us fans could do a better job on draft day. I could turn this team into a perennial winner in 3 drafts or less. Book it. Especially with the time and tools these dorks have to work with.
