Making backup QBs with no experience look good is a lucrative business.

I find it hilarious that this is basically the exact same contract SF offered Alex Smith.

That actually doesn't seem like too bad of a deal. I figured he'd land more than that.

I bet the Kolb contract actually made it harder for Flynn's agent.

Yeah, that's kind of a small contract. For those blowing up about Flynn getting paid off of "one game," he was considered the league's top back up before that game, and the contract he just got is below average for a starter. I almost wish the Niners would have nabbed him for that price. Seattle has a shot at being fairly decent next year.

and of course if we strike out on Manning and Tebow really does demand a trade, this would've been a fantastic deal for us. I have no idea why Flynn's agent did wait for the Manning fall out to drive up the price a little. Even if Flynn didn't want to be here, money talks.

Besides Weber's 51 INTs at Minnesota, he wasn't that bad.

also Tebow would be dumb as hell to demand a trade at this point. there is not a single team in the NFL with a need at QB if Manning goes to SF and Smith to Miami. here, he would start.

How hilariously sad will it be if Peyton signs elsewhere and we wind up trading Tebow and giving a 5 year deal to Alex Smith.

And then Alex Smith turns back into the small-handed, sack magnet, int-throwing bust that he was from 2005-2010.

Must people around here would be ok with that, cause it means that Tebow is gone.......even though we suck more.

The only thing Brady Quinn is good for is sucking cock at Burning Man.

I'm sure you're getting fitted for your XXXXXXL Pink Brady Quinn Chef jersey as we speak.

We're only a day or 2 away from Elway saying to all of us that tebow is "our guy". Then tebow will say none of this bothered him. Then we go 5-11 next year.

hopefully Miami signs Smith and leaves Harbaugh having to spend the dough to sign Manning. Then Tenn and Denver have to go up too. Maybe thats why Paymeaton is waiting...to see just how high he can get this thing up to?

Maybe he really can't make up his mind...but the delay is to his benefit...and his agent knows that.

That's actually about where I think the contract should be. I thought someone would overpay, but that's not crushing money.

Or, could be 10-6 and improvement.

Improvement would be utilizing a huge cap space to fill many many holes on this team.
