We are SF last year but with our existing QB having a better showing than did Smith. Like us they finished 6-10, had a strong defense, no coach, no franchise QB... but unlike us, in reality performed even worse since their 6-10 didn't include winning 6 out of the last 9 and was set in a competitive division where their best team, Seattle went 7-9.
Just goes to show what kind of a quick turnaround a good coach and eithera good QB or one who's properly utilized can bring if the team has underperformed relative to its assets.
We've got more than enough tools for Peyton to make the same assessment.
Wisdom from a "QB Whisperer::
"No we have our FRANCHISE QB and I want to keep him rather than get 2 guys who may or may not be productive NFL players.
Palmer's situation is different and if I had my choice between Palmer and buttfumble, I'd take buttfumble"
