I was thinking during this year's draft that it was a good year to swap a pick for a 2016 pick to have some extra chips. There are 3-4 guys who could be interesting at the top of next year including Cook, Hackenberg and Jones depending on how they all perform. I would think Sheldon or Mo could be a chip as well. Not saying Petty isn't the guy, but I don't think we'll know for sure by the end of this season and I'd go all in next year to draft a top QB if we can unless one becomes available by other means.
Maybe Big Ben will punch out a backup LB and get released?
I think when all is said and done, this incident will have the unintended benefit of accelerating our moving on from Geno by a season. Either Fitz will be good enough to play the Dilfer role this season or we'll be awful and we'll do what we need to do to draft/acquire another QB next season. But it sounds more and more like Geno really is just an ass and if he was Favre-good, then I'd be fine with it, but when you're in the bottom-three of QBs in the league, you don't get away with it.
