If he's getting released by the Niners, can we PLEASE let Whithurst go? PLEASE.

Why is everyone so down on Whitehurst? Sure he hasn't looked great but he's been able to step in when needed, and win to get a marginally talented team into the playoffs. We've been lucky to have Volek for this long but that's all you can really ask for in a backup QB.

He has proved time and time again that he cannot get the job done, either as starter or back-up. He honestly will never come as near to what Volek has done for us as a franchise.

Look at his performance at Seattle to be further convinced...

He's only started 4 games in his career, for a pretty crappy team, and never more than two in a row. That's "time and time again"? One of which was a Sunday night game in Week 17 where he went out and won the division for his team. There was a time when Drew Brees sucked just as bad here, and he figured it out for himself. Will Clipboard Jesus be another Brees? Probably not, but I think he will do just fine as a backup.
