If this is the case, what about picking him up as a backup? A longshot, I know. Probably too expensive and wouldn't want to ride the bench. But he is miles better than Painter. He might cost too much or not want to come out here but I'm just throwing his name out there.
I expect it is a dumb idea, but I just wanted to throw it out there. He backed up Warner for a long time, and now has lost a job to Anderson. He is a previous National Champion and Heisman winner, so i doubt he'll come here and be a career backup.
Again, i realize how much of a longshot, I'm just curious as to what you guys would think of this, being a "What if?" scenario.
