I honestly think Pace believes he just drafted a ready-made 27 year old QB with Senor Butt Fumble as a backup.

I don't think we take a QB high with the intention of making him QB3 and getting zero reps.

What a terrifying idea, Pace just might be fine with Glennon and feeding Fox some defense.

Pace is really setting up the next GM well, he'll have cleared out any big contracts, built a deep roster, and then the next guy can pull the trigger and get a QB with the new coach.

I dont think/hope that's not accurate. He certainly didnt structure the contract like there was zero doubts.

He gave himself an out after this season, but it's going to cost us $4.5 million.

The fact that the kid just turned 27 AND that Pace has tried to trade for him the past two seasons tells me Pace wants to give this kid every chance to succeed. I think the fact that Sanchez was signed as a backup only adds to the notion that a QB will not be taken high.

That's just my 'reading the tea leaves'. Hope I'm wrong.

I think I would still go for Jamal Adams over Lattimore. Yes you get higher positional value but his injury scares me and I just don't know if he has for sure pick on him. Jamal's leadership is so appealing as well. We need a face of the franchise like Urlacher.

Has a SS ever been the "face" of a franchise? Serious question...

I was going to say Ronnie Lott but even he couldn't overtake Montana/Rice.

Some people might say Troy Palamalu, except he was only drafted one season before Big Ben so that eliminates that one.

We certainly don't have any QB's or Hall of Fame players to steal the spotlight from a Lott type safety. Heck, if the new guy knows what direction the jock goes on then he's already halfway to being the leader of the defense compared to the safeties he's replacing.

Brian Dawkins is the closest I can think of.

If you are Ryan Pace what is the downside of having Glennon and Watson?

If Glennon struggles you have someone to turn to that the fan base will be thrilled with.

If Glennon plays okay, you have an option and competition. You will also be too far to get a top guy next year.

If Glennon wins the MVP, you have a trade chip that makes Jimmy G look like a gab of flaming poop.

A lot, actually. Watson is your de facto QB 3 and is used to a system completely different from what Glennon and Sanchez have run in their careers. Do you expect Loggains/the offensive staff to have two separate offenses being taught at once? It's just not realistic, at all. And then to do that and leave top tier talent that could help your defense immediately is just bad business man. Fox is trying to win now and Pace is trying to build us into a strong defensive and running team.

It sucks. I hate it. But that's reality for this franchise right now.
