    Here's an interesting way to start your Sunday morning: 49ers free-agent QB Alex Smith is visiting today with the Miami Dolphins.

    It would be hilarious if they sign him and Manning then snubbed the 49ers.

    Yea well I have a thought on that. If Hasselbeck gets released and becomes a free agent, he could actually make more money than he's scheduled to now. I think as a free agent he could sign another $20M deal somewhere. And that's not something the Niners would want to do, so they should perhaps trade for him to assure themselves they have a QB next year.

    Think about the teams that might pay Hasselbeck $20M over 3 years. Redskins, Seahawks, Dolphins, Cardinals. Matt Hasselbeck is an upgrade over several QB's, he's gonna get some decent attention as a free agent.

    Fair enough, all you need is one dance partner.

    I think he showed enough last year to give him value as worth a starting spot.

    In the time that he had to learn a new system he was very good until he got hurt.

    I think Washington made it clear what they were going to do
