It's not like you couldn't win a Super Bowl with Smith.
And like Kurt Warner said, if you make this move, you do it over the offseason. Not Week 12 of a title chase. Pressure is hard enough on young QB's. Throwing this much expectation on a kid over such a short number of games is begging for disaster.
