    I hope SK takes all this into account when we get that new QB. I think Gabbert if he shows anything might be a stop gap for a couple 3 years, and give the Cards time to find their guy with a new head coach. Next guy comes in might want to run some form of west coast. Not BA's style of chuck it down the field.
    Possible reason that the Cards have not drafted or even stuck with a practice squad QB. When BA retires (or fired), SK will bring in the new coach and together they will go after the QB that matches the new playbook. That's is what happened when SK brought in BA.

    BA had Stanton tag along and together they dug up Palmer off the Raider scrap pile. At the time, the Raiders were also running a chuck-it-deep vertical passing game with Palmer.

    Best case scenario will be to bring in a new HC who pulls a QB who already knows that playbook. The OC for the Pats and Garrap?

Then injuries of his own just as he started to get rolling, new staff on 5 year plan with high draft pick deciding to find "their guy". Landing in S.F. behind a QB who was just signed to a $120m deal and was only a couple years older. Having things blow up around him on the 9ers. Taking over as starter in his second year there only to have the coaching staff fired again at the end of the season. Winning the job again in camp only to have the team ripped apart by Kaepernick's race politics. Thrown under the bus by Chip Kelly once the season was lost to polish up Chip's murky race reputation. This is by far the healthiest football environment Gabbert has been in as a pro, and he still has all the tools that made him so attractive in 2011. Along with significant starting experience in all sorts of different systems. He had 40 starts before he turned 27. Brady, Brees, Palmer, Rodgers, Rivers, Wilson, etc. only had a few more at the same age. All of them had less than 50, I think. Cousins had 9 at that age, Romo 10.
    Let's hope all the trials and tribulations Gabbert has experienced give him the mental toughness to put it all together with the Cards. Add to your list that he came out of a spread offense in college and had to learn all the pro-NFL QB techniques. He's paid some dues and gone through the learning curve.

    It would be the cheapest and quickest solution for the BA offense to have Gabbert click and keep BA coaching for the Cards.

    Do you really think any coach would turn their nose up at inheriting Rothlisberger, Manning or Luck?

    Chip Kelly.

    A whole lot of college coaches in line for a coaching job in the pros.

    The guys you mentioned are all 'old school' dinosaurs. BenRoth is a hit away from retiring, P.Manning is history, Luck was a QB tutored by BA and has yet to rise above his poor surrounding team.

    The rule changes that have gone toward protecting the offensive players now puts a premium on QBs who are mobile scramblers. DBs can't breath heavily on a WR or else it is pass interference.

    Game in the college ranks is evolving away from the traditional old school offense and dinosaur QBs. The old school NFL coaches are on the way out as well as the old school QBs.

    Yeah, you can make a case that Gabbert is the key player on the team at the moment, despite just arriving at vet minimum salary. The repercussions of his laying claim to the QB spot are huge. First off, it dispels the funeral pall around the team with everyone focusing on the final days of Carson Palmer. It would give Fitzgerald more incentive to come back to chase records, and a younger, more mobile QB would take some pressure off DJ in the backfield. Down the road it would save them giving up draft capital to move up for a college prospect, or spending it on another vet. Both options would cost the team many times what they spend on BG. Last, but not least, Blaine is a great public representative, a quality not all starting quarterbacks share. No ******* Newton/Griffin/Cutler/Kaepernick stuff, or eye rolling Tebow/Wilson/Cousins smarmy crap. Plus he's not butt ugly like Roethlisberger, Flacco, Glennon, Luck. Easy on the eye, easy on the ear, easy on the brain.

    And yet Chip enjoyed his best NFL success with Foles.

    I would say that if a GM/Owner was looking to hire a new HC, the subject of QB would be high on the list of topics and that if a new prospective HC were to suggest they couldn't envision success with a Manning, Roethlisberger, or Luck? The interview would end post haste and the search for another option would begin immediately.

    I also disagree with the idea that "old school" NFL coaching is on the way out. Or that the college game is going to produce massive change in the way the professional game is played. You have it backwards.

    Running QB's do fine while they're young. After they've been SLAMMED into the ground a few hundred times they start rethinking their options. It might take a number of years for it to sink in, but eventually they all come around.

    I appreciate your efforts for assembling this post. It sheds even more light on the rough journey that Gabbert has endured and goes into a lot more detail than previous posts about perennial changes of HC & OC. I had forgotten about the lockout and the Jags ownership change happening while he was with them. He probably feels like he has landed in heaven here.

    I applaud SK for basically reaching into the bargain bin and coming home with what could be a diamond in the rough. Lol...When I was a youngster in Phoenix I was playing in the front yard and found a ring that I assumed came from a bubble gum machine. I gave it to my younger sister instead of throwing it away. Unlike me, she actually cleaned it up & looked at it before deciding to save it. Many years later she learned that what I had assumed was cheap plastic was an opal.

    I just hope BA & SK can rub the dirt off BG the same way.

    Makes me can't help but wonder what he saw in Logan as opposed to Prescott.....or Gabbert as opposed to Kap'? And that 5'11 QB that Pete Carroll took, that BA rejects, has led his team to back to back SB appearances winning one and putting his team in the position of winning the second one if weren't for questionable play calling in the final seconds. I guess I'm a little surprised and dismayed by this article though granted no one is perfect no matter how good they are at their job.

    Sounds like what you would LIKE to say is this: No one is perfect no matter how good they are at their job. Regardless of that fact, I want to piss and moan about BASK not taking Wilson, who was passed over by every team twice and surprised even Carroll by actually beating out Flynn.

    You REFUSE to accept the fact that Kap SUCKS at standing in a pocket and delivering long passes with any accuracy whatsoever. It's not JUST that either. Here's an example of what you get with Colin: http://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2015/...eave-receivers

    I will give you this. Drafting Logan Thomas displayed the same myopic mindset that Kaepernick displayed in the above clip. They had made up their mind what they were going to do, and when Prescott was right there for the taking, they stuck to their stupid plan.

    The Big A era begins
