Brady Quinn has proven over multiple opportunities to be a far worse QB than Sanchez. Gradkowski has a career completion % of 52.9. Neither of these guys is going to magically turn into a good QB. Bringing those dogs in to compete for the starting role is pointless.
And as I said before, dumping two cheap, capable players just to get a team to take Holmes for minimal cap savings doesn't help. It would make more sense to just cut Holmes and keep Wilson and Powell (which I wouldn't do either). That 3rd round Safety isn't worth those two guys.
And yes, some people were less than gentle in reacting to your 'plan' but you're not doing yourself any good by reacting with hostility. Assuming you're right and everyone else is wrong is probably not a good strategy for being taken seriously.
