Gabbert has exceeded all expectations, however that still does not mean he should be our QB moving forward. As each week passes, I am fearful that our front office is seeing enough to make a longer than 1 year investment in him. We need to draft a QB. High. Very high.
Its simple to me: if this coaching staff remains, I simply don't trust them to facilitate and foster the growth of a young QB like Jared Goff.
IMO, the most respectable coach on this staff is Mangini, so I would lean toward using our high draft picks to bolster the defense. Despite how erratic his defense has been this season, they've shown the ability to play great in spurts at home. I think Mangini is slowly finding his groove with this sqaud.
While Gabbert's play does not mean Gabbert should be our QB moving forward, it also does not mean he shouldn't be our QB moving forward, either. Let him finish out the season, and we'll evaluate then.
What we do know is Kaepernick is NOT the QB of this team moving forward.
