Start anyone except the rookie and once we're mathematically eliminated see if he's got anything that might stop you from drafting a QB in the 1st of the 2014 draft. Clausen got in because of injury but that was the plan for him IIRC. If not, use the (likely high) pick on of the many guys in that draft.
There is so much talent in the 2nd and 3rd round this year--to waste either pick taking a flyer on maybe striking gold with a QB is shortsighted.
We need OLine help, pass rushers, RBs, inside linebackers, a safety, WRs--we could draft 2 legit starters in rounds 2 AND 3, to forgo one of those in the hopes that you pick THE right second-level QB would IMHO be a mistake.
I, for one, don't want to pick the next Clausen. I'd rather a Gio Bernard or an Okafor or an Alford or a Montgomery in rounds 2 and 3.
