A guy like Alex Smith is only going to be a stop gap before there comes a long a good draft filled with decent QB prospects, perhaps like this years draft which now has six (seven if you count Cousins as a starter after Sunday) rookies starting for their teams, three of whom look likely to lead their teams into the play offs.
And how well did that work out for the Ravens BEFORE Joe Flacco arrived, and when the Ravens D was much more formidable than it is now?
