I really hope that Smith can be open-minded on the QB situation. His inflexible "Rex Grossman is my quarterback" philosophy from his Bears days has got to go.

If Junior continues  to prove he is the better passer, then Crouch should be replaced.  Leadership ability is important, but so are QB skills, which Crouch sorely lacks.
